A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
Release Date: March 1, 2016
The last thing sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the John Watson–wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, 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 enigmatic, fiercely independent great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability. Charlotte has been the object of his fascination for as long as he can remember–but from the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else.
Then a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Holmes stories, and Jamie and Charlotte become the prime suspects. Convinced they’re being framed, they must race against the police to conduct their own investigation. As danger mounts, it becomes clear that nowhere is safe and the only people they can trust are each other.
Equal parts tender, thrilling, and hilarious, A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy brimming with wit and edge-of-the-seat suspense.
Every time I read the synopsis my heartbeats speed up. No joke. I love mystery and Sherlock Holmes so give me those two together and I’m a goner. In this book, Sherlock Holmes’s great-great-granddaughter and Watson’s great-great-grandson are going to meet and omg I bet their chemistry will be volatile (pun totally intended) 😉 And omg omg that title. GIVE ME MY SHERLOCK REFERENCES ASDFGHJKL. And that cover. It’s so pretty. So pretty. So pretty. So pretty. So pretty. ♥
This book is going to rule the world, I know it. One A Study in Charlotte, please.
