Synopsis:
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?






ARC Book Review:

The Disappearance of Lady Edith by Christina McKnight attracted me because of the blurb that promised a brain teasing, spine tingling mystery and a heart thumping historical romance and I am so happy I decided to pick this book up to read!

I enjoyed every second spent reading it. There are two mysteries in this book. One is the murder of Edith's best friend which runs in the background and will continue in the next book and the other is the mystery of Edith's disappearance as suggested by the title of the book. Both mysteries had me speculating and I am more than eager to see the mystery of Edith's friend's murder solved.

Triston and Edith are so cute together. I loved them and stayed invested in their clean, wholesome romance throughout.

Edith and her two friends, Luci and Ophelia are loyal to their deceased friend and invested in solving her murder. I felt connected to them and it was like being with friends as I excitedly followed them in their search for the murderer.

Christina McKnight's narration is fluid and vivid and she managed to keep me glued to my seat throughout. I could visualize each scene and the mystery felt like a puzzle which had me playing detective along with the heroine. 

The plot is admirably conceived and executed. The author has developed the story as well as sketched the characters beautifully that will easily engross the readers in this book.

All in all, I adored this book and cant wait to read the subsequent books in this series. A very entertaining historical romance with an engaging mystery, I was left with a happy smile at the end and an eagerness to grab the next book. 4.5 out of 5 to The Disappearance of Lady Edith by Christina McKnight  and recommended to everyone.
