Murder at Chateau sur Mer by Alyssa Maxwell. Published by Kensington

Emma is covering a polo match for her column for the Observer, but it’s really the lives of the players that her readers are interested in. In 19th century Newport, Rhode Island, the rich and famous make fascinating newspaper copy. Things get exciting when a woman crashes the match and demands to see the wife of a prominent Senator. She is escorted off the property and Emma doesn’t think mush more about it until the next day when police detective Jesse Whyte asks her to join him at the Senator’s home. Inside, the woman from the polo match the day before lies dead. The Senator’s wife asks for Emma’s help in solving the case, and to use her discretion to avoid a nasty scandal. Maxwell takes readers back to the Gilded Age for another romp with her intrepid newspaper reporter, Emma Cross
