Book 2, Newport Gilded Age - A Newport Gilded Age Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The author of A Gilded Grave returns to Newport, Rhode Island, at the close of the nineteenth century, where headstrong heiress Deanna Randolph must solve another murder among the social elite.

With her mother in Europe, Deanna is staying with the Ballard family, who agree to chaperone her through the summer season and guide her toward an advantageous marriage proposal—or so her mother hopes. Relishing her new freedom, Deanna is more interested in buying one of the fashionable new bathing costumes, joining a ladies’ bicycling club, and befriending an actress named Amabelle Deeks, all of which would scandalize her mother.
Far more scandalous is the discovery of a young man bludgeoned to death on the conservatory floor at Bonheur, the Ballards’ sumptuous “cottage.” Deanna recognizes him as an actor who performed at the birthday fete for a prominent judge the night before. But why was he at Bonheur? And where is Amabelle?
Concerned her new friend may be in danger—or worse—Deanna enlists the help of her intrepid maid, Elspeth, and her former beau, Joe Ballard, to find Amabelle before the villain of this drama demands an encore.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 25, 2016 – At the start of Freydont's glittering second Newport Gilded Age mystery (after 2015's A Gilded Grave), Deanna attends the opulent birthday fete that Maude Grantham has put on for her husband, Judge Samuel Grantham, at their "cottage" on Bellevue Avenue. The Granthams' daughter and son-in-law have had an entire stage set built and hired an acting troupe to perform. Among the actors is Amabelle Deeks, a daughter of the privileged class who's left home for a career. Deanna befriends Amabelle, who comes to Bonheur, the home of Gwendolyn Manon, where Deanna is living. When an actor is found dead in the Bonheur conservatory and Amabelle goes missing, Deanna and her maid, Elspeth, again play detective. Deanna chafes under the many restrictions that society imposes on her, but Freydont does a good job showing how women in the 1890s were making advances both small (less restrictive tennis outfits) and large (campaigning for the vote).
