I really enjoyed this story. Edith was a gem and Triston was a man of honor who felt that he needed to right wrongs and protect the women in his life. Edith and Triston meet by chance as she's investigating the death of her close friend. Triston finds her irresistible and Edith finds him incredibly attractive. I'm glad the the story will continue with Edith's friends as the story has much more to tell. My only issue with this book was the Edith and Triston's story was too short. Their romance deserved more time.

One tragic night has lead three women on a journey of danger, courage and love. Christina McKnight, begins her Undaunted Debutantes series with a bang. The Disappearance of Lady Edith is a story of betrayals, danger and the quest for justice. The death of a close friend has pushed Lady Edith to the edge. She wants someone to pay and she needs answers. Her determination catches the eye of a possible suitor, but also puts her in more danger than she could ever have imagined. The lure of the chase is hard to ignore.

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. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

It begins with a tragedy. On the night of her wedding, Lady Tilda falls or is pushed down the stairs to her death. Her new husband, the Duke of Abercorn, doesn’t seem to be terribly upset about it. Even though they have not been able to prove the Duke is responsible for her death, Tilda’s closest friends, Ladies Edith, Luci, and Ophelia are determined to find the evidence they need to prove his guilt. We next see the friends in London about a year later. The girls are still trying to prove Abercorn is guilty of Tildas death, but they have branched out to warn London’s ladies about unscrupulous men through a column in the newspaper. Edith, although she is the most skeptical of the three, is best at investigating and gathering clues. She and Tristan meet when he catches her in a tree spying on Abercorn. They continue to run into each other, and the result is hilarious, until Edith is kidnapped. Now Tristan and the ladies join forces to find and rescue Edith. This is a story that holds your interest from the prologue right through to the epilogue. It is a fast paced plat with a number of twists, turns, and surprises. It is the first in the Undaunted Debutants series centered around the three ladies trying to solve their friend’s murder. Tristan and Edith are wonderful together. Luci and Ophelia are tough and determined. You will love meeting Tristan’s sisters, Pru and Chastity. It will be interesting to see what kind of adventures are ahead for Luci and Ophelia.

While reading the story of Triston and Edith, I kept waiting for more development in the mystery of their friend's death. I also thought Edith was written more forward than that time and her never being questioned by her parents and just going off on her own all the time was unbelievable, then again, that's why I read fiction! I loved the story idea and how the "villain" was handled. Can't wait for Luci and Ophelia's stories and to see if they ever solve Tilda's death. I was given an ARC for an honest review.

First off, the cover is beautiful and invites the reader to open the book. Secondly, the prologue drew me right in. What really happened to Tilda? Why wasn't her new husband more distressed at seeing the state of his new bride? What are Edith, Luci and Ophelia going to do? Fast forward nearly a year and Triston and Edith have their first meeting. Sparks flew from that moment. I enjoyed each of their meetings, their escapades and their good hearts. There were some interesting twists and turns in the story that kept me reading until the end. There are many more stories to be written about the wonderful characters introduced in this book. Also, the mystery from the prologue has still not been resolved. I look forward to reading those books as it will be fun to see what Luci and Ophelia are up to next. I always enjoy Ms. McKnight's book and this one was as good as all of her others. I encourage you to read and enjoy it. I received an ARC of this book. The choice to read and review was all mine.

The disappearance of Lady Edith was my first historical romance read, so I was pretty excited to read it and I have to admit that my initial excitement was well paid off and this book didn’t disappoint me even a bit. Lady Edith is a headstrong woman, determined, sensible and brave. She has set out along with her friends to find out whether her childhood friend, Tilda’s newly wed husband was responsible for Tilda’s mysterious death on her wedding night. I loved Lady Edith’s character right from the beginning. Her character is really well built and absolutely likeable. Next coming to the man who stole Lady Edith’s heart. He is Lord Torrington alias Triston, Marquis’ son, tall, handsome and strong. He is good at heart and definitely loved Lady Edith a lot, and didn’t think twice about endangering himself to save Lady Edith. Lord Torrington is another very likeable character. The mystery of this book is the disappearance of Lady Edith and not the death of Tilda. Though it was not the mystery that I had expected when I read the blurb but still this mystery hooked me completely. The the last part of the novel totally kept me at the edge of my seat and I could not keep the book down The romance between Torrington and Edith was sweet but the mystery in this book became a highlight for me rather than the romance. Though the book has a HEA for the main couple but it doesn’t reveal the person who murdered Tilda, so that’s a cliffhanger. Now, I have to wait for the next installments of The Undaunted Debutantes Series to know more about Tilda’s death. But in spite of the cliffhanger I found The Disappearance of Lady Edith to be quite a enjoyable read. If you are a fan of historical romance mixed with mystery then you would definitely like The Disappearance of Lady Edith.

Potential is there but there were so many things that didn’t ring true. I can’t imagine a young “lady” in early 1800’s London being allowed to run free without a chaperone whether on a horse or without one. Being up in a tree spying? Leaving public gardens to follow a man…and into a questionable neighborhood? Three friends searching for the killer of their friend might be possible just as they might desire to prevent other young women from making horrendous marital mistakes BUT in that day and age and economic strata women were bargained off on the marital market with little say in the matter and the freedoms and access to newspapers the three had seems a bit fantastical. The hero might be a hunk but he did not seem to have many if any redeeming qualities and the relationship between him and Edith seemed…unlikely. If you are looking for a fantasy rather than a historical novel this series might be for you. I cannot recommend it as “historically accurate” though. Would I read more of the series? Perhaps – to find out who killed Tilda and to find out what else the author might decide to have the young women get up to. Thank you to NetGalley and Barclay Publicity for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars
