This month's book talk is a fangirl experience over A Study in Charlotte, a Sherlock story that took us both by surprise. We had both heard of the book and knew Jeff Zentner raved about it but it wasn't until we realized she has an upcoming event here AND she's local that we knew we had to read it.
And read it, we did.
See why you need to pick up A Study in Charlotte (and its sequel, The Last of August) pronto below! If you're local, be sure to check out Brittany and Jeff Zentner at Kepler's this Thursday!
A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE
by Brittany Cavallaro
Published: March 1st 2016
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
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.
A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy.
