I know it’s been forever since I last did one of these, I didn’t mean it to be but as per usual, life gets in the way and I just never managed to find the time to sit down on a Wednesday and write one of these. I promise I will try to keep to a more regular schedule for my posts from now on! Anyway, for my first Wishlist Wednesday back in a while, I’m going to talk about a new release that I’m really excited for, A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro.
The last thing Jamie 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 great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.
From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.
I am a big fan of Sherlock and all things Sherlock related (despite having never read the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories, I hope to rectify this one day, but I love the TV series and the RDJ movies!), so obviously when I found out about this retelling, I was really excited, especially since the Sherlock character in it is a girl. I love mysteries and I assume given the title, that the case will be reminiscent of A Study In Scarlet and I remember enjoying the Sherlock episode that was based on that, so I’m looking forward to seeing how the mystery unfurls and how Charlotte and Jamie compare to their older generation relatives. This is definitely a 2016 release that I’m looking forward to getting my hands on, even though it’s not likely I’ll actually read it in 2016, given the old too many books, not enough time conundrum!
Hopefully I will be able to get back on track with my Wednesday posts and have a new one for you all next week! I’m also hoping, time dependent, to have a new Thursday Quotables post up for you guys tomorrow.
