Murder at Crossways (A Gilded Newport Mystery) by Alyssa Maxwell

In the late 19th century, Newport, RI, is home to some of America’s wealthiest citizens. It’s also the beat of society reporter Emma Cross, a less well-heeled cousin to the illustrious Vanderbilts, who occasionally moonlights in solving murders. This is a fictional mystery with a good amount of historical detail, showcasing Mamie Fish and her extravagant Harvest Festival at the lovely neocolonial mansion, Crossways. Unfortunately, the guest of honor, Prince Otto of Austria, is found dead in the garden at Crossways the next morning!
