USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down…
With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper class society. But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London.
When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old—a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her. But in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind.
Sherry Thomas is an author I’ve read before, although all the works I’ve read by her are historical romances; I did buy one of her science fiction books, but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. So when I heard she was releasing a new series, I thought I’d take a look. And when I heard the words “Lady Sherlock,” it immediately went on my to-be-read list! And let me tell you, the first book in the Lady Sherlock series, A Study in Scarlet Women, made an instant fan of me (I’d been waffling before) because ZOMG I loved it so much! Read More »
