Step back into the past in the first Newport Gilded Age mystery--from the author of the Celebration Bay mysteries.   In 1895, the height of the Gilded Age, the social elite spend their summers in Newport, Rhode Island. Within the walls of their fabulous "cottages," competition for superiority is ruthless...and so are the players.   During her first Newport season, Deanna Randolph attends a ball given in honor of Lord David Manchester, a Barbadian sugar magnate, and his sister, Madeline. The Manchesters are an immediate success--along with their exotic manservant and his fortune-telling talents.   But on the nearby cliffs, a young maid lies dead--and suspicion falls on Joseph Ballard, a member of one of the town's most prestigious families.   Joe humiliated Deanna when he rebuffed an engagement to her, but while he may be a cad, she knows he isn't a killer. Now the reluctant allies must navigate a world of parties, tennis matches, and séances to find the real murderer. But a misstep among the glittering upper classes could leave them exposed to something far more dangerous than malicious gossip...… (mer)

When you figure out the big reveal as soon as the murderous character(s) is/are introduced, the book loses its intrigue rapidly. ( )

It’s 1895 in Newport RI. Wealthy young woman turning 18 is in middle of her social season of husband hunting. Her mother is manipulating her choices but Deanna is in love with her childhood friend Joe. Joe has given up the social scene to work on an assembly line type of machine. A maid has been murdered and Joe and his apprentice Orrin are suspects. Deanna and her maid Elspeth using dime mystery novels as reference set out to find out who did it. ( )

A delightful debut novel. Author Shelley Freydont has made a wonderful transition from the twenty-first century cozy mystery to the nineteenth century historical mystery. It is so clear she has done her research of the Gilded Age. Her character’s words, behavior, and mannerisms are all perfect for the era.

Deanna Randolph is an unlikely sleuth, yet in the talented hands of author Freydont, she is not only believable, she is very much up to the task. It’s going to be interesting to watch Deanna grow as the series continues.

This was an incredibly well plotted mystery with more suspects than a few. With twists and turns all the way to the exciting end, I second, third, and fourth guessed myself and yes, still guessed wrong!

A GILDED GRAVE is sure to be a hit with historical and cozy mystery fans alike. ( )
