Blog Tour and Giveaway: Death of an American Beauty

Who doesn't love the Gilded Age of New York City? It's one of my favorite time periods to read about, especially now that I need a good escape.  When I found out that Death of an American Beauty by Mariah Fredericks takes place during the Gilded Age in New York City and it involves a murder mystery, I knew I had to add this book to my TBR list.  It is being described as an UpstairsDownstairs type of mystery and it's third in a series of books featuring the lady's maid, Jane Prescott.  I love the sound of this one! What do you guys think? Do you guys love a good historical mystery?

Today I am excited to be a part of the blog tour for Death of an American Beauty.  The book was just published this week!  I partnered up with Minotaur Books to give away a copy of Death of an American Beauty to one lucky winner.  

Learn More About the Book:

Goodreads says, "The third in the compelling series, set in Gilded Age New York, featuring Jane Prescott.  Jane Prescott is taking a break from her duties as lady’s maid for a week, and plans to begin it with attending the hottest and most scandalous show in town: the opening of an art exhibition, showcasing the cubists, that is shocking New York City.   1913 is also the fiftieth anniversary of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation speech, and the city's great and good are determined to celebrate in style. Dolly Rutherford, heiress to the glamorous Rutherford’s department store empire, has gathered her coterie of society ladies to put on a play—with Jane’s employer Louise Tyler in the starring role as Lincoln himself. Jane is torn between helping the ladies with their costumes and enjoying her holiday. But fate decides she will do neither, when a woman is found murdered outside Jane’s childhood home—a refuge for women run by her uncle.  Deeply troubled as her uncle falls under suspicion and haunted by memories of a woman she once knew, Jane—with the help of old friends and new acquaintances, reporter Michael Behan and music hall pianist Leo Hirschfeld—is determined to discover who is who is making death into their own twisted art form."
You can buy your own copy of Death of an American Beauty at Amazon, B&N or IndieBound.
