A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro – Charlotte Holmes #1 (EPUB)
A Study in Charlotte
The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford. Sherringford is a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication. Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter. The granddaughter who inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.
From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.
A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy.
I especially admired the book’s ties to the Sherlock Holmes mysteries and was wildly impressed by how fluid and natural the connections were between the two. This book balances the line between paying homage to Holmes mysteries and also being fresh and original. A Study in Charlotte brings a thrilling plot, spot-on characterization, whip-smart writing, and a puzzling mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. Although there’s no cliffhanger, I’m anxious for the next book!
Brittany’s writing is stellar and completely absorbing. Her wit and humor shine through in this novel as does her talent for writing. A Study in Charlotte ends fairly resolved, and there are two more books in the series to come! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can’t wait to see where the newest Holmes and Watson take us next.
