The Disappearance of Lady Edith
One tragic night changed sensible, proper Lady Edith Pelton’s life: when her best friend fell to her death, pushed down a flight of stairs by a nefarious lord. Now, Edith dedicates her time to watching the man she thinks is responsible, while gathering information to expose other scoundrels posing as gentlemen of honor about London. When her spying is noticed by a perfect stranger, Edith finds herself with two mysteries—what happened to her friend, and how to win the heart of this brilliantly handsome lord.
Triston Neville, Viscount Torrington, has been tasked with two duties for the upcoming Season: see that his sisters make the most of their debut, and avoid embroiling himself in another scandal. What he does not expect is the captivating, fair-haired beauty that literally falls into his path. When the mysterious Lady Edith suddenly disappears without a trace, Triston fears his past misdeeds may have returned to destroy his life once more.
Can Triston piece together the puzzle in time to save Edith and prove that his love is nothing less than honorable?
Happy ever after
This is a simple but well written story. The plot is far fetched but nevertheless it holds your attention ad has a happy ever after end.
1The disappearance of lady Edith
I loved it!! Something new and entertaining
If you suspend disbelief this is an enjoyable romp. Though I must admit it is not easy to believe that a gently reared (and one would have thought, closely chaperoned) young lady would have been able to get up to the things Lady Edith did. Spying on men, contributing to a gossip column, deceiving her parents, climbing trees in London, searching an Inn in a criminal area and never a concern about being ruined, or worse.
