The Luxe by Anna Godbersen

Are you a fan of Gossip Girls? You might like this book then!

Elizabeth is a young aristocrat in New York in 1899. She is the heiress of a family name--and only a family name. She must marry Henry, a young man of a rich family, who has a playboy image. Through marriage, she will save her family and their name.

But Elizabeth is in love with Will, the stablehand. Her maid, Lina, is also in love with him, and would rather do anything than serve Elizabeth. Diana, Elizabeth's younger sister, is in love with Henry, who begins to share her feelings back for him. In the background is Penelope, Elizabeth's best friend and biggest rival--who also wants Henry for her own. The solution to all of their problems is unclear, and all mentioned are set to being miserable for the rest of their lives. Until it appears Elizabeth has died....
