Venom by Fiona Paul


BookNerd 
Thankful for Books Giveaway
Co-Hosted by Tristi Pinkston



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.

  5. I have, but it was really stupid. I was angry because my mom loves screaming at me to hurry the hell up before my carpool arrived, I hate hurrying, and I cry when I'm frustrated XD

    ReplyDelete
  6. No, never. I don't waste my time or nerves crying over things I can't change.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I don't think so... Even if I ever did, I don't think I remember.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :]

  10. Crying in the shower is the best thing. The water completely drowns away your tears and if someone asks why your face is so red you can blame it on the heat!

  23. Uh, that is a strange question to ask. I like it! Yep, I cry in the shower. I try not to let my husband see me cry (except for TV show tears). The shower is a place I can let it go for a few, and then get out and shake it off.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Plenty of times! It's the only place you can have some privacy. :P

    ReplyDelete
  25. Most recently after my father's death somy kids wouldn't see me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Last May, when my best friend died the day after my Mom-Mom. I now understand that moment in movies where people just collapse in sobs because they can't remain standing. I couldn't breathe through the sobs and grief. Not an experience I ever want to repeat.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have cried in the shower - it's such a peaceful place! Thanks for this amazing giveaway - I would love to win!

  28. Never cried in the shower before...I think it's impossible becuase there's too much water going on.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes, I have cried in the shower. During a time that I was hurting, no matter what I was doing or where I was, I cried... even in the shower. Thank you for this awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hilarious! Except... crying is sad and showering is lonely. Fortunately it's a great place for loud sobbing, which does, actually, feel better than holding it in. What a question!!

    ReplyDelete
