Blog Tour and Giveaway: High Wire Heartbreak by Anna Schmidt

About the Book


Book: 
High-Wire Heartbreak

Author: Anna Schmidt

Genre: Christian/Romance/History

Release date: January 1, 2022

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?

More from Anna

It’s hard to split time living between Wisconsin and Sarasota Florida and NOT get caught up in the circus world! The Ringlings are icons in Sarasota where a LOT of things are named for them! But the five circus brothers got their start right here in Wisconsin. So, when the opportunity to create a story for DOORS TO THE PAST came my way, it was pretty much a no-brainer that I would go with John and Mable Ringling’s incredible home, Ca ‘d Zan as the setting. Then somehow, I stumbled on this picture:

and I knew she was my character of Lucinda, the trapeze artist whose story would drive my novel. I hope you fall in love with her—and Chloe—as I did, and most of all I hope you’ll be in touch to let me know what you thought at http://booksbyanna.com.

HAPPY READING and all best wishes, Anna

My Review

High-Wire Heartbreak by Anna Schmidt is a great contribution to Door to the Past series. I thought it was a great read. It was intriguing getting into the mystery that the main character, Chloe, gets herself involved in. I never knew what was going to happen next.  I had to keep reading to see what was going to become of Lucinda and how Chloe would react. I could not put the book down until I read the very last page. 

High-Wire Heartbreak will be getting a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean historical romantic suspense. I look forward to reading the next installment from the Doors to the Past series, Jennifer Uhlarik’s Love's Fortress. 

I received a digital copy of High Wire Heartbreak from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
