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!
