MURDER AT CHATEAU sur MER By Alyssa Maxwell


The fifth book in the Gilded Newport Mystery series. It is set in the 19 the century. Emma Cross, cousin to the Vanderbilts and newspaper reported for the Newport Observer is covering a polo match when a woman demands to speak to the wife of Senator Wetmore. The police remove the woman from the area. The next morning the woman, a prostitute, Milan lays dead at the foot of a staircase. Edith, the Senator ‘s wife hired Emma to investigate the case showing her husband was not acquainted with the Lilah. The police are told to leave the case alone. The autopsy showed the woman’s neck was broken and she was pregnant. The case is reopened.
Derrick has return from Italy and the homicide detective, Jesse meets and dislike each other. Emma shocked The Four Hundred Crowd going to Blue Moon, a brothel. There she found an old scrapbook belonging to Lilah. There is a series of robberies on the wharf and a fire of a business. What is the importance of the scrapbook? Will Emma managed to clear Senator Wetmore’s name? There is a cliffhanger at the end. I recommend the book and series.
