Book Overview

An NPR Best Book of 2016 USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down... With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper class society. But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London. When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths...

Boring and confusing

I spent most of this confused. I don't suggest the audiobook if you want to follow along, but I'm sure it would be easier to read in book format. Points in favor: - I liked that it portrayed a different version of the Holmes vices with Charlotte's eating. - I liked the mystery part, when we finally got to it Points not in favor: - too many lords and ladies, I couldn't keep it straight. - the first half of the book was BORING. I got this for murder and mystery, not sad stories of Holmes wandering the streets. - Cheating. I know Ashcroft/Lord whatshisface is supposed to be Charlotte's love interest, and I know he has a bad relationship with his wife and whatever but I still don't like it. I'm not sure if I'll continue the series with all of the cheating that's likely to happen.
