In a historical mystery for Downton Abbey fans, a society reporter covers a killer party in Gilded Age Newport. Newport, Rhode Island, August 1895: She may be a less well-heeled relation, but as second cousin to millionaire patriarch Cornelius Vanderbilt, twenty-one-year-old Emma Cross is on the guest list for a grand ball at the Breakers, the Vanderbilts’ summer home. She also has a job to do—report on the event for the society page of the Newport Observer. But Emma observes much more than glitz and gaiety when she witnesses a murder. The victim is Cornelius Vanderbilt’s financial secretary, who plunges off a balcony faster than falling stock prices. Emma’s black sheep brother Brady is found in Cornelius’s bedroom passed out next to a bottle of bourbon and stolen plans for a new railroad line. Brady has barely come to before the police have arrested him for the murder. But Emma is sure someone is trying to railroad her brother and resolves to find the real killer at any cost . . . “Sorry to see the conclusion of Downton Abbey? Well, here is a morsel to get you through a long afternoon. Brew some Earl Grey and settle down with a scone with this one.” —Washington Independent Review of Books “Emma’s ebullience and the glittering details of Newport’s gilded age past give the novel a brisk energy.” —Publishers Weekly “A great effort with intriguing characters and a solid murder mystery . . . Maxwell has written a delightfully complex tale.” —RT Book Reviews

Losing her position as a sewing maid with Madame Barin, Garnet Appleby finds herself alone on the streets of London. Her present circumstances are a far cry from her genteel upbringing and she resolves that she will do anything to reverse her fortunes. Finding a position as housekeeper to Matthew Lambert, Garnet discovers warmth and security for the first time. However, she is quick to relinquish this for the excitement of the Court of Charles II when she is offered a position by Lady Caroline. She becomes the object of Sir Nicholas Graveney's attentions and begins to think her ambition to become a lady is about to be realised. But Garnet is too naive to know that the only intentions the notorious Sir Nicholas are capable of are strictly dishonourable. The gypsy's prophecy that Garnet had always feared may now be the only thing that can save her.

When Mary Margaret Masters inherits an antebellum home in another state, her well-ordered, hectic life is in for some analysis and an awakening to her own needs. Unprepared to acknowledge that her life is less than perfect, this is the story of one woman who, in her fifties, believing her life is all it should be, is confronted with the reality that her own interests have been put aside too long. Suddenly she has the opportunity to make major changes. How she deals with love, obligation, commitment, loyalty, guilt, and the insecurity a new direction for her life would bring records the story of her courageous transition from who she thinks she is to who she actually is. Set in a spell-bindingly beautiful antebellum home, its magnificent grounds, and the historic beauty of Charlestons Ashley River Road, she must finally and conclusively decide what must be done about the future of Myrtlewood and what must be done about her own life. This novel is about choices and about unexpected transitions.
