Crush – The Novel

If you love wine, the ocean or Margaret River, you may lose yourself amongst the pages of Crush.

Crush, a fictional novel set in the vineyards of beautiful Margaret River, follows the escapades of a young winemaker venturing from Victoria to further her winemaking career. Maddie navigates work and relationships in an unfamiliar place and readers gain insight into the complexities of producing wine, the sensory joy it delivers and the passion enveloping 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.

Engaging. Evocative. Sexy. Fun.

Crush ventures beyond the cellar door into the passionate realm of wine.

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.

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

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.
