9781842432815: Nectar of the Gods

Struggling to come to grips with the death of her husband and business partner, Sarah Bennett is just beginning to stabilize the precarious financial state of her Atlanta-based wine importing company and get her personal life back in order, when she finds herself embroiled in a bitter battle with the brand manager for Bluestone Cellars, a historic family winery now owned by Australia's largest and most powerful wine conglomerate. Sarah is facing almost certain bankruptcy with the precipitous drop in her Bluestone Cellars wine sales after a series of appalling ratings by the world's most famous wine writer—ratings that may be firmly rooted in a personal vendetta against her. Once in Australia, Sarah stumbles upon a mysterious file that could put the billion-dollar Australian wine industry at risk. When she is attacked by a knife-wielding killer and people around her start dying, instead of fighting for her contract, Sarah finds herself fighting for her life.

About the Author:

Gwen C. Watkins, founder and co-owner of Astra Wine Imports, worked in the wine industry for more than 20 years, pioneering the introduction of Australian wines in the U.S. She lives in South Florida.

From Publishers Weekly:

British author Watkins brings her years of experience as a wine importer to her bracing thriller debut. When an American wine critic, Sam Somers, who gave a high rating to an Australian wine, a Macquarie Hawke Coonawarra Shiraz, asks Davis Hart, Hawke's winemaker, about some inferior bottles of the shiraz, Hart doesn't take kindly to having his integrity questioned. Later, at Atlanta's Peachtree International Wine Festival, someone fatally stabs Somers. Shortly after Hart reports his wine's falsified records to the Australian Wine Board, he dies in a suspicious airplane accident. Enter Sarah Bennett of Atlanta's Cornerstone Wine Imports. What begins as a simple dispute regarding labels escalates into a terrifying game with Sarah as mouse and a gang of Hawke thugs as cat. U.S. importer Jake Malone, an old friend of Sarah's, adds romantic heat in this heady mix of winery expertise and slick suspense. (Aug.)
