Publisher's Summary

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 before it’s too late.

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.

The narrator is awful!!!!

This narrator sounds like she is first time novice. I felt like screaming because I waited for this book but cannot enjoy it. At times is seems the main character is talking to herself because the voices are barely discernible from each other. From the very beginning as the man forces the girl up the tight rope you begin to realize the problem of “the voice.” I stopped at chapter five... just no more... NO MORE. The narration only gets worse as she begins to chew words with no sense of timing and rhythm. Not worth your credit. Buy a hard copy.

Love the Burning Cove gang

Hope there are more in the future. As usual fun and interesting characters keep you laughing, and on the edge of your seat.

Nebo’s

I think this is the first book by Amanda Quick that I did not care that much for. Slow, not enough excitement for me. It was just okay.

Amanda Quick never fails to please

I can’t remember the last book I listened to recently that I listened a the way through in one go. J K amazes again. With a good light story mystery arcane fantasy Along with yet another Jones woven into the tale. The narrator is reasonable. But not as good as some of the one older arcnaratord in other Arcane narrators. Still a reasonable listen
