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 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.
