The heroine, Ada, is trying to discover what has happened to her younger sister. The family lives in the White chapel area, and there has been a ugly series of murders -- though Jack the Ripper is never named that is what is inferred. Ada knows her sister had been involved with a man but does not know his name.
The hero, Will, came back wounded from fighting. He was rejected by the woman he was to marry, and she married someone else. Will hasn't been involved with a woman since.
There is a slimy lord the younger sister was seeing, but he is getting married and has told the girl they are done. He basically plays cards for the girl and the winner gets her. Will wins and actually goes to see her but he meets her sister instead and is instantly smitten.
The attraction is mutual, and after a couple of encounters Will offers to help find the missing sister. He has concerns that the slimy lord might be the killer.
Ada is training to be a nurse but the slimy lord's sister gets her dismissed from the hospital.
The hero and heroine travel to the lord's estate to question the servants but run into Will's former fiancee. He has no feelings for her and makes his feelings for Ada clear. They spend the night together at a local inn.
The next morning they discover her sister working there and the girl has a new love. This one loves her and their future looks good.
Will proposes to Ada on their train ride home. There was previously mentioned that Will wanted to be a doctor, so this will work out well.
This is a nice story, and I do recommend it.
