Waiting on Wednesday: Venom

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Venom by Fiona Paul
Pub. Date: October 30, 2012



Goodreads says, "Love, lust, murder, mayhem and high society converge in one thrilling debut. Cassandra Caravello has everything a girl could desire: elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, invitations to the best parties, and a handsome, wealthy fiancé—yet she longs for something more. 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 the body of a murdered woman—with a bloody X carved across her heart—she’s drawn into a dangerous world of secret societies, courtesans, and killers. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a poor artist with a mischievous grin . . . and a habit of getting into trouble. Will 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, romance, and mystery weave together in a novel that’s as seductive and stunning as the city of Venice itself."

*Doesn't Venom sound great? I love the idea of a good mystery with a lot of suspense; plus, it takes place in Venice! What do you think?

  1. I couldn't figure out if it is contemporary or historical but it does sound good. I love the mask on the cover.

  3. Sounds like historical (the gowns part) - gorgeous! I read something similar earlier this year that I wished had been flashier and had more of Venice society in it. This sounds like it might have more of that setting, it sounds really good. I know a few people who are already drooling over it, I may have to add this one to my wishlist. :)

    The cover lover in me definitely approves of this one!
