Waiting on Wednesday (61)


"Waiting on" Wednesday" is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.







 
October 18, 2016
FROM GOODREADS: 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.


WHY I'M WAITING: Before last year, I never really thought I enjoyed historical fiction that much.  However, I have discovered when teamed with mystery and thriller aspects, I enjoy it quite a lot.  Plus, I loved Deanna Raybourn's "A Curious Beginning"  and since the book 2 doesn't come out until forever, I am looking for something to fill the void.

What are you waiting for this week????

  1. I like the idea of a woman as Sherlock Holmes...I have a mixed relationship with historical fiction so I'm not sure if this would be my thing! I'll be interested in seeing what you think of it!

  2. It seems like Holmes is very popular these days with retellings from Middle Grade (Shelby Holmes) to YA (A Study in Charlotte) to Adult (this one and many more...lol).

    I sure like a good Shelock Holmes type of story though so this sounds good and I like the author as well. :)
