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?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
OMG She did it to me again!! She shocked me with this book!! I loved the darkness of the opening prologue and then the mystery that surrounded the story!! The Who-Done-It was great and a great way to weave the story of Triston and Edith together.
The story begins with 4 friends giggling before their friend’s wedding night. They were helping her gather the confidence she needed for her new husband. When suddenly, she is found dead…the three ladies set after to catch her killer.
The story jumps forward and we meet Triston and his awesome dad…please read that with full sarcasm. Triston sees a woman in the tree but what he really sees is her knickers and well that my friends makes him go and see who this woman is!! The couple met up a few times and he learns about her through is younger sisters who are entering their 1st season.
Edith is drawn to Triston because she thinks he may know something due to his association to their friend’s killer. Each time they meet is more and more inappropriate then the last time. When they kiss, well things get a little crazy because then Edith is taken and it’s up to Triston and the other friends to find her plus figure out WHO HAS HER!!!!
This book was a super-fast read. The beginning of the book might be a bit slower than the last half but I think it’s because we are meeting all the suspects and other people of interest for the series. I cannot wait to read Luci’s book because she is one tough cookie. She will not fall easily and when she does look out because I think she is going to be not so happy about it!!
