Publisher's Summary

With the dawn of the 20th century on the horizon, the fortunes of the venerable Vanderbilt family still shine brightly in the glittering high society of Newport, Rhode Island. But when a potential scandal strikes, the Vanderbilts turn to cousin and society page reporter Emma Cross to solve a murder and a disappearance...

Responding to a frantic call on her newfangled telephone from her 18-year-old cousin, Consuelo Vanderbilt, Emma Cross arrives at the Marble House mansion and learns the cause of her distress - Consuelo's mother, Alva, is forcing her into marriage with the Duke of Marlborough. Her mother has even called in a fortune teller to assure Consuelo of a happy future. But the future is short-lived for the fortune teller, who is found dead by her crystal ball, strangled with a silk scarf. Standing above her is one of the Vanderbilts' maids, who is promptly taken into police custody. After the frenzy has died down, Consuelo is nowhere to be found. At Alva's request, Emma must employ her sleuthing skills to determine if the vanishing Vanderbilt has eloped with the beau of her choice - or if her disappearance may be directly connected to the murder...

    "Hooked on Newport!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder at Marble House to be better than the print version?

    This is the first time that I've listened to the audio of an Alyssa Maxwell book before reading it--I found it very enjoyable.


    Have you listened to any of Eva Kaminsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to the first book, Murder at the Breakers, and I feel like she did even better in this book. I feel like she capture's Emma's voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cried and laughed in all the right spots


    Any additional comments?

    Great book - can't wait for the next one!
