Cross My Heart
by Sasha Gould
To be released: March 13, 2012
Summary from Barnes and Noble:
When 16-year-old Laura della Scala learns that her older sister, Beatrice, has drowned, she is given no time to grieve. Instead, Laura's father removes her from the convent where he forcibly sent her years earlier and orders her to marry Beatrice's fiancé, a repulsive old merchant named Vincenzo. Panicked, Laura betrays a powerful man to earn her way into the Segreta, a shadowy society of women who deal in only one currency—secrets. The Segreta seems like the answer to Laura's prayers. The day after she joins their ranks, Vincenzo is publicly humiliated and conveniently exiled. Soon, however, Laura begins to suspect that her sister's death was not a tragic accident but a cold-blooded murder—one that might involve the Segreta and the women she has come to trust."
Honestly, the cover of this book caught my eye because I love masks. I collected them for a little while - and I just think they're gorgeous. And to find out this novel is set in Venice is even better. I think this sounds like it has a great mysterious and secretive story that I would love. Can't wait!
