High-Wire Heartbreak by Anna Schmidt [Blog Tour + Giveaway]

Do you like "split-time novels" where there's both a historical and present-day storyline? I haven't read many, but High-Wire Heartbreak, the latest entry to the stand alone novel series, Doors to the Past is one of them!

Title: High-Wire Heartbreak [Doors to the Past Series]
Author: Anna Schmidt 
Published: 2022 by Barbour Fiction


"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?"
