Publisher's Summary

For Newport, Rhode Island’s high society, the summer of 1896 brings lawn parties, sailboat races...and murder.

Having turned down the proposal of Derrick Andrews, Emma Cross has no imminent plans for matrimony - let alone motherhood. But when she discovers an infant left on her doorstep, she naturally takes the child into her care. Using her influence as a cousin to the Vanderbilts and a society page reporter for the Newport Observer, Emma launches a discreet search for the baby’s mother. One of her first stops is a lawn party at Mrs. Caroline Astor’s Beechwood estate. But an idyllic summer’s day is soon clouded by tragedy. During a sailboat race, textile magnate Virgil Monroe falls overboard. There are prompt accusations of foul play - and even Derrick Andrews falls under suspicion. Deepening the intrigue, a telltale slip of lace may link the abandoned child to the drowned man. But as Emma navigates dark undercurrents of scandalous indiscretions and violent passions, she’ll need to watch her step to ensure that no one lowers the boom on her....

    "EXCELLENT WRITER AND GOOD NARRATOR"

    The third book in this series is very interesting and intriguing. Emma's and Derek's romance is still at a very early stage. The snobbishness and hypocrisy of the aristocrats are so........disgusting! I admire Emma's strength and independence and I hope she will find someone good enough for her.

    "Wonderful!"

    As an Alyssa Maxwell fan, I was not disappointed by the story. Emma Cross is a spunky lady, with a wonderful compassionate heart.

    "These books just keep getting better!"

    You know you are listening to a masterpiece when you're getting mad at the GBS lady for interrupting your book. Alyssa Maxwell 's Murder at Beechwood is a great "read" The Gilded Newport Mysteries Just keep getting better and better!
