Alyssa Maxwell signs books for fans at The Breakers


In what’s become a yearly event, Alyssa Maxwell recently signed her Gilded Newport Mysteries in the gift shop at The Breakers in Newport, RI, where the series is a bestseller. Readers drove from as far away as Connecticut and New Jersey to attend. This year, Alyssa was joined by local Newport writer, Kathleen Kennedy Wood, who signed her memoir, Chateau sur Mer: A Child’s View of Life in the Famous Mansion. Alyssa is grateful to the Preservation Society of Newport County for embracing her series and for their support.
