About Tess Woods

Tess Woods once had a simple life until her compulsion to write made-up stories complicated everything. She's now an award-winning and bestselling author of contemporary fiction. Tess also works as a physiotherapist in private practice, and she shares a clinic and a home on the stunning Western Australian coast with her husband. She's the mother of two brilliant grown-up children and one grumpy grown-up cat. Tess's favourite thing is to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea, ignore the book, forget the tea and scroll on her phone instead.

About The Venice Hotel

Set over the twelve days of Christmas at a boutique Venice hotel, this deliciously twisty novel by an acclaimed Australian author is ideal for fans of Nine Perfect Strangers and The White Lotus. When the lives of four very different women become entangled in a boutique Venice hotel, dark secrets unravel, and not everyone who checked into the hotel will check out again. Signora Loretta Bianchi, the world-famous cook at Venice's Hotel Il Cuore, is forced to choose between a once-in-a-lifetime passion and her devoted husband. Sophie, on assignment in Venice as a food writer, finds a lot more than Signora Bianchi's secret recipes to love, but what is the charming Rocco hiding? Law graduate Elena is sinking just like the endangered city she's returned home to, and she'll stop at nothing to be free from her marriage. Grandmother Gayle's dream Venetian holiday turns sinister as she finds herself embroiled in a life-or-death escape. Set against a backdrop of the romance and tragedy of magical Venice, The Venice Hotel explores the powerful bonds that develop between women in times of crisis and the healing power of female connection.

Dymocks Joondalup will be selling Tess's book on the night, and she will be available for book signing.
