Product Description

A successful historical mystery writer, Chloe Whitfield comes to Ca’ d’Zan to research her next novel. Chloe’s fascination with the circus is rooted in family stories of her great-grandmother Lucinda Conroy, who reportedly was a trapeze artist.
Chloe’s grandmother—rumored to be Lucinda’s only offspring—was raised in an orphanage and never knew her mother. Intrigued as she is, Chloe has no intent of writing about Lucinda until she sees a poster featuring Lucinda as the star performer for a 70th birthday gala for John Ringling in May of 1936. From there the trail goes cold.

Publisher's Description

In 1936--A party at the Ringling mansion Ca d’Zan in Sarasota, Florida, leads to a robbery--and possibly death.

A successful historical mystery writer, Chloe Whitfield comes to Ca’ d’Zan to research her next novel. Chloe’s fascination with the circus is rooted in family stories of her great-grandmother Lucinda Conroy, who reportedly was a trapeze artist of some renown. She’s heard hints of scandal—and perhaps larceny, but no details.

Chloe’s grandmother—rumored to be Lucinda’s only offspring—was raised in an orphanage and never knew her mother. Intrigued as she is, Chloe has no intent of writing about Lucinda until she sees a poster featuring Lucinda as the star performer for a 70th birthday gala for John Ringling in May of 1936. From there the trail goes cold.

Who was Lucinda and what happened to her?

Editorial Reviews

"Much like the historical heroine swinging on her trapeze bar from one side to another in a death-defying performance, author Anna Schmidt takes the reader on a thrilling ride from the present to the past and back again. The modern-day heroine, despite a looming deadline, can’t resist the lure of solving the mystery surrounding her great-grandmother’s apparent disappearance amidst a scandal. I couldn’t resist turning the pages to discover the revelations from the past and how they affected the present."

- Johnnie Alexander, best-selling and award-winning author of Where Treasure Hides and The Cryptographer’s Dilemma.
 

"High-Wire Heartbreak swings into action to give this cold case fan an entertaining, high-flying mystery. Learning about the Ringling Circus and romance is a double win! I love how the past and present are woven together into a single delightful tale of intrigue and love."

 - Mary Davis, award-winning, bestselling author of the Quilting Circle series
