An unconventional woman and a man shrouded in mystery walk a tightrope of desire as they race against a killer to find a top secret invention in this New York Times bestselling novel from Amanda Quick. Former trapeze artist Amalie Vaughn moved to Burning Cove to reinvent herself, but things are not going well. After spending her entire inheritance on a mansion with the intention of turning it into a bed-and-breakfast, she learns too late that the villa is said to be cursed. When the first guest, Dr. Norman Pickwell, is murdered by his robot invention during a sold-out demonstration, rumors circulate that the curse is real.  In the chaotic aftermath of the spectacle, Amalie watches as a stranger from the audience disappears behind the curtain. When Matthias Jones reappears, he is slipping a gun into a concealed holster. It looks like the gossip that is swirling around him is true--Matthias evidently does have connections to the criminal underworld.  Matthias is on the trail of a groundbreaking prototype cipher machine. He suspects that Pickwell stole the device and planned to sell it. But now Pickwell is dead and the machine has vanished. When Matthias's investigation leads him to Amalie's front door, the attraction between them is intense, but she knows it is also dangerous. Amalie and Matthias must decide if they can trust each other and the passion that binds them, because time is running out.… (lisätietoja)

Amalie Vaughn was nearly the victim of a serial killer, but her survival put an end to her career as a Trapeze artist. She's moved to burning cove, spending the last of her money on a mansion with the intention of turning it into a bed-and-breakfast. Lotal stories say that this house is cursed, after all the previous owner committed suicide. Now her first guest is Dr Norman Pickwell and during a show (featuring his home-made robot) he's killed by his invention. Matthias Jones is investigating because there's a link to a cipher machine and messy spy stuff. When Amalie aand Matthias meet sparks fly and the relationship will take them into intersting places. Matthias' links to gangster activities may lead them places they don't want to go, but the serial killer's legacy is lurking in the background.
It was a fun read, a little bit of the paranormal lurked in Matthias' ability to lie-detect but it wasn't a lot in the story, this was more romantic thriller than paranormal. ( )

Tightrope is a good book that from the prologue through the end keeps its pace. The characters and situations are all believable. There is a lot of dialogue which is stiff. The topics of circus performers, spies, suspected people with Mafia connections, murders, and some romance all are important parts of this book. Because the book just stopped short of a few more pages of writing it received a solid three stars for this review. ( )

Light, historical romance about a former trapeze artist and a mobster who are caught in the wake of a murder surrounding an enigma machine. Set in the 30s, Amalie Vaughn has retired from circus life after an attempt has been made on her life. She settles in the town of Burning Cove with her aunt, and witnesses a murder of the guest at their B&B by his robot. When a mob connected stranger comes to investigate, and stays at her inn, sparks fly between them. They become involved personally and professionally in trying to solve the series of murders and the case of the missing enigma machine.

I was a little disappointed in this book..The earlier installments felt a little fresher than some of the books that Krentz has produced lately. This one was a little flatter and the characters felt like they were fleshed out very well. For a change, the main murderer wasn't immediately recognizable, although there was more than one guilty party. ( )
