Maddie Hatter's third Adventure finds her in Venice on an all-expenses-paid assignment: report on the season's most extravagant Carnevale costumes. Determined to land an inside scoop, she enlists the help of her half-Venetian friend, Lady Serephene, to penetrate Madame Frangetti's Costume Atelier in disguise.

Serephene is pursuing plots of her own: training in secret for a career that's forbidden by her family, and flirting madly with a low-born Scottish inventor in his airship laboratory. When the inventor's fabulous new fabric is targeted by industrial spies, Serephene risks not only her family's displeasure but her own safety to protect him and his work.

Pursued through the floating city's legendary canals and squares, Maddie must draw on all her hard-won survival skills to keep herself and Serephene out of the spies' clutches. With the help of unexpected allies among Venice's underdogs, the daring young ladies just might reach Carnevale's grand finale alive.

9 out of 10

I really enjoyed the setting of this one. Having visited Venice myself, it was easy to picture the canals and the tight streets and the little squares. There weren't a ton of steampunk elements added to Venice, which is a contrast to the settings in the other books, but I doubt the author could have added anything more that would have made Venice even more unique. The plot with the experimental fabric wasn't quite up to Maddie's usual mad cap antics, but the book was a still fun romp, and at Carnevale no less. I hope there are more books to come.
