Can't Wait Wednesday (102)

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.









FROM GOOREADS: Being shunned by Society gives Charlotte Holmes the time and freedom to put her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. As “Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective,” aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, she’s had great success helping with all manner of inquiries, but she’s not prepared for the new client who arrives at her Upper Baker Street office.

Lady Ingram, wife of Charlotte’s dear friend and benefactor, wants Sherlock Holmes to find her first love, who failed to show up at their annual rendezvous. Matters of loyalty and discretion aside, the case becomes even more personal for Charlotte as the missing man is none other than Myron Finch, her illegitimate half brother.

In the meanwhile, Charlotte wrestles with a surprising proposal of marriage, a mysterious stranger woos her sister Livia, and an unidentified body that surfaces where least expected. Charlotte’s investigative prowess is challenged as never before: Can she find her brother in time—or will he, too, end up as a nameless corpse somewhere in the belly of London?


WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I loved the first Lady Sherlock book, A Study in Scarlet Women, and am thrilled about the next installment.  Plus, isn't that an awesome cover??? 


What book can't you wait for this week???

  15. As you know, I've read "A Study In Charlotte", by Brittany Cavallaro. This novel also takes off on the concept of a female detective named Charlotte Holmes. However, in Cavallaro's book, Charlotte is actually a descendant of Sherlock Holmes, and she is assisted in her brilliant sleuthing work by James Watson, a descendant of the original Dr. Watson.

    I ADORED this novel!! Unfortunately, the second book in the series, "The Last of August", did not quite live up to the high standards set by the first one....

    Having stated all of the above, I'm ALWAYS open to any novels related to the original Sherlock Holmes, so I'm DEFINITELY interested in the one you're featuring here!!

    I LOVE the cover, I LOVE the cleverness of the plot in making Sherlock actually be a woman, and HECK, I just WANT this novel right NOWWWW!!! AWESOME pick, Barb!!

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my CWW post!! <3 <3 :) :)
