Maxwell, a history lover who married into an old Newport family, recreates the dynamic relationships within the Vanderbilt household. [...] Emma’s investigation will keep you guessing who is responsible for the Murder on the Breakers, all the way to its clever, semi-comical ending.

Inept sleuthing, historically inaccurate behavior & ridiculous "romance". Really, the only reason to read this is for the thin atmosphere & setting.
