Based on true events, Sex, Lies & Stellenbosch
uncovers what really goes on behind closed doors in the seemingly up-standing community of Stellenbosch, one of South Africa’s wealthiest small towns, where 3,400 dollar millionaires live (before they invested in Steinhoff shares). Written as fiction to protect the innocent,
the book exposes the explosive dark truths of the Winelands’ elite.
All is revealed through the eyes of stay at home mom, 49-year-old Jen, who is the wife of John, a renowned wine farmer and businessman. Jen, like many of her privileged friends, lives a charmed life provided by her husband, in exchange for conjugal sex and obligatory wifely gratitude. When Jen stumbles upon her playboy
husband in a compromising position with his sexy employee, things fall apart. Jen is forced to choose between leaving her marriage, jeopardising her standing and stability in the community or turning a blind eye to his infidelity. The book follows Jen’s passage to self-discovery and self-fulfillment, while other characters’
perspectives move the story forward as each is privy to (and eventually reveals) at least one ‘truth’ or ‘lie’ which Jen must face.
Jen’s exposition of her husband’s infidelity inadvertently mirrors the underbelly of the patriarchal and often duplicitous community of the seemingly perfect Stellenbosch. Led by prominent wine farmers, international businessmen and renowned academics, business and private interests, even if ethically compromised, are
staunchly guarded. The unfolding chapters irreverently explore both the emotional growth of the protagonist, Jen, as well as the moral ambiguities of the other players in the book.

Sex, Lies and Stellenbosch
Sun, 10 Feb 2019 | Review by: Catherine D
This is a work of fiction, a deliciously steamy romp through the doings and screwings of the winerati of Stellies. Uncompromisingly, unashamedly chick lit of the highest order. Highly entertaining!
