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 and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old—a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her.
But in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind.
Looking forward to more books in the series! An entertaining and quirky heroine, outwardly the flip-side to the Sherlock we know and love but as intelligent and deductive. Fun story!
Extraordinary, my dear Watson!
Sherry Thomas took me back to another era and turned Sherlock Holmes on his—or rather, her—head. And try as I might, I couldn't solve the mystery. It's no wonder A Study in Scarlet Women was named one of NPR's Best Books of 2016. I look forward to the next book in the Lady Sherlock series!
This book was so entertaining - couldn't put it down! If you like a mystery, you'll love this! I can't wait for more of Miss Holmes and Mrs. Watson. Lol
