Waiting on Wednesday: Venom

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.
I am waiting on:

Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose, #1)
Title: Venom
Author: Fiona Paul
Series: Secrets of the Eternal Rose #1
Publisher: Philomel
Publication Date: October 30, 2012

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.

Why am I waiting?
Murder, Romance, Renaissance Venice, who doesn't want to read this book. 
I like the idea of trying to infiltrate secret societies to solve a murder, especially with historical elements. 

What you waiting on?
Leave me a link so I can come check it out!

Thank you for stopping by Unabridged Bookshelf!

I requested this on Edelweiss, but I still haven't heard back from the Publisher. -_-
I suppose that means I'm not going to get approved.
It does sound like a totally fab book! :) Plus, I love books with historical elements to them ! So I can't wait. :D
