It’s July 1895 and the New York elite have decamped to Newport, Rhode Island for a summer of balls, garden parties, and yacht races. Covering these events for the women’s pages of the Newport Observer is Emma Vanderbilt-Cross. She’s a fearless twenty-one-year-old writer with family ties to the wealthy Vanderbilt family. But writing articles about food and fashion is the last thing on Emma’s mind when her half-brother Brady Cross (James Drew Dean, Marry Go Round) is arrested for the murder of Goddard, (Cesare Scarpone, The Bold Type) long-time Vanderbilt business advisor.
She decides to take matters into her own hands and sets out to prove her half-brother’s innocence. She discovers Goddard had more than his fair share of enemies. As Emma investigates with the help of police detective and crush Jesse Whyte, (Griffin) housekeeper Nanny O’Neal (Gillian Barber, Chesapeake Shores) and coroner’s assistant Harriet Rice, (Amira Anderson, Foragers) she’s plunged into a word of intrigue and danger – while attracting the attention of the town’s new mysterious stranger.
