Summary (from goodreads): 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.


  1. I LOVED THIS BOOK! I don't read a lot of historical fiction, but everything was just beautifully written and I loved Falco! One of my 2012 faves. I hope you will like it too! :)
    My W.O.W.

  2. I have a copy of this one from ALA...I wish I could read it now! But, must do Netgalley ones first!!

    My WOW

  3. I really need to get back into wanting to read historical fiction (I haven't read much of it at all in a while) because I've seen such great things about this book. Love that it has secret societies, murder and some mystery - and it's in Venice, too.

    Great choice :)

  4. Thanks for featuring Venom, OUaT :) Only about 40 more days! *sits on hands* There are some giveaways and contests coming up. Check fionapaulbooks.blogspot.com for more info.
