In 1880s London, Charlotte Holmes is an outlier. With no desire to follow the traditional path for society women, she sets a plan in motion that leads to unexpected consequences. Charlotte is an absolute delight, as is the cast of characters aiding in her quest to uncover the truth. This series launch by Sherry Thomas puts a fresh spin on Sherlock Holmes. If you enjoy historical mysteries, strong female characters, and witty writing, pick up A Study in Scarlet Women (2016).
For fans of Deanna Raybourn’s Veronica Speedwell series and Laurie King’s Mary Russell series. And while it has a lighter tone, there are similarities to the TV show Psych (hyper observant folks solving mysteries).
