Into the Wild

Read A Study in Scarlet Women (Lady Sherlock, #1) Online Free - 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.

"The truth is I've no idea what on earth I could possibly do with my particular talent." Mrs Jebediah leaned forward. "And what is your particular talent?" [..] "Discernment, I suppose." Charlotte took a deep breath. "I can tell more about you, for instance, than you would want me to know." Things w...

4,5 Stars An artful and intriguing retelling, this time our Sherlock goes by the name of Charlotte, can't resist sweets and sports blond curls and a generous hourglass figure, but the discernment, intuition and genius are on par with the original counterpart. A brand-new mystery of its own with...

I've given this an A- at AAR, which is 4.5 stars rounded up. I admit that when I heard that Sherry Thomas, one of my favourite and without doubt one of the finest authors of Historical Romance currently writing was going to be shifting genres and embarking on a series of Historical Mysteries, my f...

4.5! Going to have to wait a LONG time for the next book! For those into mystery, I would HIGHLY recommend this! The mystery is wonderful, taking the span throughout the entire book a little bit at a time. It's told through various POVs--not just Charlotte's, which came as a surprise! Major key ch...

What is it with this and the last Holmes interpretation I read? I never really got the hang of this story. I found the writing confusing and I think much more editing was required. There were spelling errors present still in this published version, I found I never really got a sense of some of th...
