The writing is juvenile & yet the plot is too complicated, too many characters introduced in the first couple chapters. It reads like an old dime novel. The owner of the inn just happens to be a former tightrope performer.

Here we go again. Did Krentz actually write this book, or does she write an outline and someone else "fleshes" it out. It's confusing when the plot goes from a circus trapeze artist escaping death to her owning an inn where a guest is murdered. So many characters are introduced in the first few chapters it's difficult to remember who they are and their connection to the plot. I'm glad I checked this book out as opposed to buying it!

I love all Krentz' stories but prefer she go back further in time or do a "new world" one as Jayne Castle. But I'll read anything by Jayne Ann Krentz, and this is far superior to the previous 2 "Amanda Quick" novels. It took me about 7 hours - and was generally worth the time.

Absolutely gorgeous cover. The story, like the previous one set in Burning Cove reminded me of a dime novel of the previous century. No character growth, no humor, and no real sensuality. Will still keep reading this author, but was disappointed by this sequence so far.

She did it again. Checked it out yesterday afternoon, finished it this morning. Brought another Jones family member in. If you are familiar with her work you know the family I am talking about. Can't wait for the next one.

As always, Ms Krentz delivers a light satisfying read, perfect for a weekend of showers and drizzle.
