GIVEAWAY – A Venice themed box of goodies!

6th October 2019

Venice themed box of goodiesIn our Venice themed box of goodies we are offering you:

  • a chance to win a copy of Venetian Blood by Christine Evelyn Volker
  • two Venetian masks as illustrated
  • a Venice greetings card

Venetian Blood: Struggling to forget a crumbling marriage, Anna Lucia Lottol comes to Venice to visit an old friend, but instead of finding solace, she is dragged into a police station and accused of murdering a money-laundering count with whom she had a brief affair. In the days that follow, Anna, a US Treasury officer with brains and athleticism, fights to clear her name in a seductive city of watery illusions. But as she tries to pry clues from a cast of uncooperative characters, who implausibly deny what she sees and hears, she begins to question whether they are hiding something or she is losing touch with reality. Racing to unlock secrets, she unleashes a powerful foe bent on destroying her. Will she save herself and vanquish her enemies, including her darkest fears? Venetian Blood is the story of one woman’s brave quest for the truth – before it’s too late.

Venetian Blood won the 2017 Sarton Women’s Book Award in Contemporary Fiction.
