Review

Praise for Alyssa Maxwell's Gilded Newport Mysteries

"The sense of place and history is palpable and the inclusion of historical figures and the intricate crimes make this a very entertaining, worthwhile series."
--The New York Public Library on the Gilded Newport Mystery series

​"Numerous plot twists, a richly described 1898 setting, details of the lives and times of the rich, and a principled, smart main character who is making her own way in the world distinguish this entry in the series. It will appeal to those who enjoy historical mysteries with strong, ahead-of-their-times female characters."
--Booklist on Murder at Crossways

"Alyssa Maxwell entertains readers once again...a light, summer-time read perfect for the beach.
--Newport This Week on Murder at Crossways

"The setting and historical details are vibrant and colorful, especially real-life figure Mamie Fish--a grand dame in every sense of the phrase--and the glittering fashions and homes of the Newport rich. The Harvest Festival itself is more than worth the price of admission."
--Criminal Elementon Murder at Crossways

"Maxwell gives an honest portrayal of the Gilded Age, its pretentious high society, and the second-class status of women. Using just the right period details, Maxwell puts the reader into the story without bogging down the unfolding murder mystery. Fans of the series will enjoy this caper."
--Historical Novel Societyon Murder at Crossways

"Plenty of red herrings and an intimate look at the world of the wealthy and famous make for a rich broth of a mystery."
--Kirkus Reviews
on Murder at Ochre Court

"Maxwell dramatically depicts the era's contentious transition from gaslight to electricity...Series fans will enjoy following Emma's changing circumstances."
--Publishers Weekly on Murder at Ochre Court

"A sweet, delightful mystery, which is sure to appeal to historical-fiction and mystery readers alike."
--Foreword Reviews on A Pinch of Poison

"The characters are fun, the dialogue is both charming and intelligent, but the scenery that makes up that extravagant time period in New England really is the gem in these glorious tales."
--Suspense Magazine on Murder at Rough Point

"Several cuts above the usual feisty heroine tale; it provides a good picture of life among the privileged--and not-so-privileged--classes in Gilded Newport."
--San Jose Mercury News on Murder at Beechwood --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
