Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together and spotlight what upcoming release we're most excited about!

Happy Halloween Everyone!  Man,do I ever love this time of year: Witches, Black Cats (like my little black cat- Nox), Broomsticks, Pumpkins and Nocturnal Mayhem...what's not to love?!  

Here's my Poisonous Pick:

Venom

Release Date:  October 30th, 2012 (Today!)
Author: 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.


So, the Venice backdrop had me instantly intrigue, it's always been one of the places I dream to visit.  I'm also a huge fan of the mysterious tone the synopsis seems to be setting.  It's apparently got some fantasy/paranormal elements worked in there as well!  And let's face it; the cover is absolutely spectacular ♥  I'm cheating again a bit this week because this is out today (Tuesday) as I'm writing this post...but I've been waiting on it for awhile now and I wanted to feature it!

So...what are you waiting on?  Link me up below and don`t forget to mention if you`re a new follower!
