'In Vino Veritas'. Murder amongst the vines! - 4 star reviews!

I have uploaded the first in a trilogy of crime novellas based on murder and mayhem in a gorgeous island vineyard.
It's available at Amazon and Smashwords and is pending review for the Smashwords Premiere Catalogue.

"Vinnie Whitney-Ross is passionate about wine, he sells it, he talks about it, he lives it and he drinks it. He, and his wife, Anna, enjoy their life in the heart of London, a life that revolves around wine and chocolate. Then a twist of fate puts him in the wrong place at the wrong time and he witnesses two gruesome murders. By another twist of fate he knows the murderer, from another life long ago. He's left with no choice and in order to survive he must commit a terrible crime.

In return for testifying against his childhood friend, he receives immunity and both he and Anna are placed in witness protection. He fulfils his dream, instead of selling wine he gets to make it. They buy a boutique winery on an island off the coast of New Zealand and, with new names and new identities, they continue Rocky Bay's fine tradition of exquisite Bordeaux blends.

But festival success brings recognition and recognition brings danger. Some very nasty men are hunting Vinnie to convince him to rescind his testimony. Everything is at stake, his precious wife, his dog, his winery, it is time to stand and fight…and add to the rising body count.

"In Vino Veritas" is the first in a trilogy of crime novellas featuring Vinnie and Anna Whitney-Ross and Detective Inspector Peter Harper. Death by a bottle of Petrus, death by drowning in a vat of must…In Wine, Truth."

It has a Facebook Page here, which includes an excerpt:

Amazon UK:

If you like black humour, wine, crime, death by Petrus or drowning in a vast of must...then this is the novella for you!

Cheers

Julie Thomas

In Vino Veritas has had a four star review on Amazon and a four star review on Smashwords:

"There are 9 differently-authored books with the title "In Vino Veritas" listed on Goodreads. This one is the right one.
Thank you, Julie Thomas. This book is fun. It's fast-paced, has great characters, the love story is done very nicely, and there's enough technical input about the wine and wine-growing to make it sound authentic...."

"It's a great story, especially for anyone who loves good wine and chocolate, and with enough tension to keep the suspense levels high. I recommend curling up with a glass of Waiheke Island red (if you can find some) and In Vino Veritas (Blood and Wine).

Thanks, Julie, I'm looking forward to reading more about Vinnie, Anna, Merlot and that beautiful Hauraki Gulf gem of an island."

The Novella is $1.99 on both sites and is the first in a trilogy, the second will be up soon. If you like wine, murder and black comedy, check it out.
