Can't Wait Wednesday (159)


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 GOODREADS: Under the cover of “Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective,” Charlotte Holmes puts her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. Aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, Charlotte draws those in need to her and makes it her business to know what other people don’t. When her dear friend Lord Ingram stands accused of the murder of his estranged wife, Charlotte goes under disguise to help prove his innocence to Scotland Yard.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I adore this series and look at that cover!  So wonderful.  In fact, I really hope I can score an ARC of this somehow!

WHAT BOOK CAN'T YOU WAIT FOR THIS WEEK?

  1. Spooky cover! I feel like I've seen another book recently about a Charlotte Holmes... maybe it was geared more towards MG, though. I can't recall!

    1. I think there are a lot of books with a female "Sherlock" right now. There is a YA featuring Charlotte Holmes so maybe that's the one you're thinking about.

  3. Spooky, atmospheric cover! I would have thought it had something to do with the Hound of the Baskervilles from that spooky cover.

    1. Oh that would be awesome if one of her books did. The cover needs a dark towering hound in the background and it was be even MORE awesome.

  16. It's been a while since I've read her. I wasn't crazy about the book (I can't even remember the name now) but the premise of this one makes me think I'll have much better luck with it, so who knows, maybe I'll give it a try!

    1. I didn't even realize she wrote other books besides this series until I just went to check out Goodreads. I think for now, I'll stick with just the Lady Sherlock books.

  24. OMG!!! So sorry for the late comment back.....:( And I can't BELIEVE what an AMAZING pick this is, Barb!!! I ADORE Sherlock Holmes!! And how very clever, to make it so that he was really a female detective using a male name! And Mrs. Watson, instead of Dr. Watson!! LOVE it!! Well, of COURSE I need to add this book to my Goodreads shelves!! And maybe we have yet another buddy read coming up, right? Lol.

    Thanks for featuring this novel! Again, I apologize for the late comment back.... Thanks as well for commenting on my own CWW post!! HUGS TO YOU AND THE PUPS, AND ARF, ARF TO THEM, TOO!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)
