Waiting On Wednesday is a meme where you basically share an upcoming book that you’re excited to read. It’s hosted over at Breaking the Spine by Jill.
The book I’m waiting on today is…: Venom by Fiona Paul.
Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice’s lucky elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady’s maid, and a wealthy fiancé, she has everything a girl could desire. Yet ever since her parents’ death, Cassandra has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape.
When Cass stumbles upon a murdered woman—practically in her own backyard—she’s drawn into a dangerous world of courtesans, killers, and secret societies. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a mysterious artist with a mischievous grin... and a spectacular skill for trouble. Can Cassandra find the murderer, before he finds her? And will she stay true to her fiancé, or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco?
Beauty, love, romance, and mystery weave together in a stunning novel that’s as seductive and surprising as the city of Venice itself.
I’m super excited to read a book set in Venice! I think the setting will be one of my favorite parts of this book, I’m sure of it. Setting aside, this book sounds wonderful. I love a good mystery, and the fact that there are ball gowns in this? Total win. On top of that, the reviews so far for this book have been amazing, which is making me even more excited! It’s such a relief that this book is coming out soon, and we won’t have to wait a million years just to read this!
This book releases on October 30th, 2012.
