The Vanished Bride by Bella Ellis

The Bronte sisters hear of a missing woman and they know the nanny there.  They find a lot of blood but no sign of the missing woman.  They decide to investigate.

This is a new cover and it is quite attractive.  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

They find that the man she married is a monster.  His first wife committed suicide to get away from him.  Might he have killed his second wife?

This is a well thought out mystery with the sisters sharing what they've found out.  They each have their own strengths.  Some are braver than others.  And they clash frequently, just like siblings do.  They press at the case, talking to family members, friends, and to anyone that knew her.  They sometimes have to pretend they have been sent by an attorney to get answers.  Women don't investigate...

They finally think they know what happened so they go to confront the suspected party.  They just want to get the children out of there alive.

The ending is dangerous and a bit sad but the mystery is solved and the overall outcome is good.  I enjoyed this tale of the Bronte sisters and would read more in this series.
