'Waiting On' Wednesday #16: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro


There are so many Sherlock Holmes pastiches coming out. Every which way you like him -- seriously dramatic , YA, comedy, homage and mystery. A Study in Charlotte goes the YA route and it is probably the second most wanted ARC in this house behind only Beastly Bones (which I have yet to get approval for from Netgalley)!



DETAILS:
  • Title: A Study in Charlotte
  • Publisher: Katherine Tegan Books
  • Publishing date: March 1, 2016
  • Author(s): Brittany Cavallaro
  • Series: Name of Trilogy unknown at this time

SUMMARY:

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.




As always thanks to Breaking the Spine for hosting.

    1. I think it will be really good. How Sherlockian it will feel, probably not so much, but I just love how often Sherlock is showing up now in YA and books in general.

  3. I see you're another Sherlock Holmes fan, like me!! WOOT, WOOT!! This is a clever way of carrying on the Holmes legacy! And how interesting that it's a female descendant of the great sleuth who has inherited his gifts.....and she teams up with a male descendant of Watson (elementary, I say.....) to solve a mystery.....I never heard of this book before, but now I WANT it. Thanks for featuring it!!

    Also, thanks for dropping by and commenting on my WOW!! Happy Reading to you, too!! : )
