WOW (1): A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro


Waiting On Wednesday (WOW) is a weekly event or bookish meme, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that readers and bloggers are eagerly anticipating and patiently waiting for.

The book that I am "Waiting on" this week is actually a book that I just seen a couple of hours before typing this post. I was on twitter, somebody shared an article about the most anticipated books to be released on March, and the thumbnail was a picture of the cover this book. It spoke to me, and I clicked it. Then, I read the blurb, and I knew immediately that I had to read it. The rest is history.


(A Study in Charlotte #1)
Author: Brittany Cavallaro
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Expected Publication: March 1, 2016

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.

  4. The plot of this book sounds great. I can already imagine the two characters turning their rivalry into comradeship as the plot thickens. I might just add this book to my ever growing to read list.
