Emma Cross has been living in New York City covering the society pages for the Herald. She is sent back to Newport to cover the debutant’s ball for Cleo Cooper-Smith in the 6th book of The Gilded Age series. At the ball, Cleo prepares a  scene to dazzle the guests. The lights go and when the lights return Cleo is dead. The first responders are also shocked trying to rescue Cleo. Em, a meets a shoddy developer at the ball. Emma and Jesse work together to solve the riddle of why Cleo lost her life. 

Class distinctions are in play Emma has decided to remain in Newport and has made up her mind about which suitor she wants.  The morals of the time are in play. I am looking forward to the next installment.
