Crush – The Novel

If you love wine, the ocean and Margaret River, you may just lose yourself among the pages of Crush.

Crush is a fictional narrative set in the vineyards of Margaret River, following the escapades of a young winemaker venturing from Victoria to further her winemaking career.

While Maddie navigates work and relationships in a new place, the reader gains insight into the complexities of producing wine, the sensory joy it delivers and the passion that envelopes its existence at every turn.

Beyond wine, Crush is a story of exploring potential, the value of understanding what makes us thrive and recognising what holds us back; of tapping into and trusting our intuitive sense which communicates constantly, free of language constraints.

Margaret River is a special place, but what makes it so?

Crush is engaging, evocative, sexy, fun.

About the author

Vikki MessengerVikki Messenger made a sea-change to Margaret River before sea-changes were even a thing—at a time when many gravitated to its beaches and wineries. Many stayed.

In those days an artistic undertone permeated the sleepy town with an organic vibe that appealed to a younger set seeking something more.

Once Vikki discovered wine, made from grapes (who knew), tasted of every other thing on the planet, she was hooked. The sensual beverage has delivered fun, friends and the only decent thing to drink with food ever since.

Vikki lives in Margaret River with her winemaking husband and their son.

CRUSH is now available from Amazon and digital stores.
