Waiting on Wednesday 21

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the SpineThe idea for this topic is to "spotlight" a book that we are waiting on. 

This week, I am waiting on: 

Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose #1) by by Fiona Paul 
Publisher:  Philomel
Publication Date: October 30th 2012
ISBN:  978039925725
Genre:  YA romance / historical fiction
Book Synopsis:  Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice’s lucky elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady’s maid, and a wealthy fiancĂ©, 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 fiancĂ©, 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.
