Synopsis:

The last thing sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the John Watson–wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s enigmatic, fiercely independent great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability. Charlotte has been the object of his fascination for as long as he can remember–but from the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else.

Then a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Holmes stories, and Jamie and Charlotte become the prime suspects. Convinced they’re being framed, they must race against the police to conduct their own investigation. As danger mounts, it becomes clear that nowhere is safe and the only people they can trust are each other.

Equal parts tender, thrilling, and hilarious, A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy brimming with wit and edge-of-the-seat suspense.


REVIEW
I love Sherlock Holmes (Okay mainly I just love the movies the Robert Downey Jr. plays in) Still I really enjoy the mysteries, and the who dun it aspect of them. 

I'm not sure how I thought I would feel about this book, but a few pages in and I knew I would LOVE it. (I loved it so much I recommended it to a co-worker who loves Sherlock Holmes, and I rarely talk to my co-workers about books.) 

I loved Charlotte and Jamie's connection. Yes, it was a connection at first, but as time went on they grew into friends, and maybe more? (You'll have to check it out to see!)

I love to try and guess at who the murderer is, and it's safe to say I was wrong. I'm not a detective for sure.

  1. I love reading mysteries too! And the fact that you didn't know who the murderer was until the end means that this author wrote a really great mystery with 3D characters.
