BOOK REVIEW: A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE

Synopsis:
Jamie Watson has always been intrigued by Charlotte Holmes; after all, their great-great-great-grandfathers are one of the most infamous pairs in history. But the Holmes family has always been odd, and Charlotte is no exception. She’s inherited Sherlock’s volatility and some of his vices—and when Jamie and Charlotte end up at the same Connecticut boarding school, Charlotte makes it clear she’s not looking for friends. But when a student they both have a history with dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.

Review:
I'm always up for a take on anything Sherlock Holmes related, so when I heard about a book that was written about Holmes and Watson's great great great grandchildren I was very intrigued. The first couple of chapters were a bit slow going, but once I hit the 100 page mark I couldn't put this book down! It was so gripping! This is actually the first in a trilogy which surprisingly bummed me out. I hate waiting for books to be released, and much prefer reading a series all at once. But I am willing to wait because this book was so good! I literally had NO idea who the murderer was. I figured it out right when Holmes and Watson did. A couple twists which were to be expected. I really love Cavallaro's writing. She is quite talented I must say :)

Rating: 4/5
