~ Blurb from Fiona Paul website ~


Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice's privileged elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady's maid, and a wealthy fiance, she has everything a girl could desire.  Yet ever since her parents' death, Cass has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape.  When she stumbled 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 Cass find the murder before he finds her?  And will she stay true to her fiance, or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco?


I'm really looking forward to reading this debut, the first book in the Secrets of the Eternal Rose trilogy.
