This week I am traveling to Texas to visit my dear grandma for her 90th birthday. But secretly I wish I was going to visit someplace a little more exotic (and sunny). But for now, I'll just have to find that in books! If you want an exotic journey, check out this week's book Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose - Book One) by Fiona Paul .
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 is a pretty amazing place to visit. For a chance to win this book, tell me what city you yearn to visit, and why.
