I really enjoyed this book. The setting was very beautiful, both the time period and the location of Venice. The story was also really good. It had romance, action, and mystery. As a reader you could really relate to Cass. You understood her struggles with doing what is expected of her and following her heart. I really enjoyed her relationship with Falco. Falco himself was thoroughly entertaining. Cass’ fiance, Luca was barely in the book but he did make an impact during his appearance in the last part of the book. There appears to be a lot more to him than is seen so I look forward to learning more. The whole mystery behind the murders is tantalizing and despite knowing who the murderer is at the end we don’t know the motive or the secrets behind it all. I would definitely recommend this book for its wonderful combination of romance and mystery.
The next book in the series is called Belladonna and will come out July 16, 2013.
