Goodreads Summary: 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.What I though: I`m a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. This is about Sherlock`s great- great-great-grand daughter  Charlotte Holmes. When Jamie Watson comes to her boarding school Sherringford, Jamie isn’t having the best time so far. Being the new kid at a school for the rich isn’t always easy. Watson has always wanted to meet Charlotte. He would dream up all the adventures they would have, all the crime they would solve together. When Jamie finally works up the courage to talk to her, it doesn’t go as planned. Charlotte is just like her grandfather Sherlock, personality and all. I love Jamie, he is so charming and smart. He wants to be a writer. Growing up reading the Holmes story’s. When Watson gets into a fight over protecting Charlotte’s honor. Charlotte is pissed at Jamie for it. Telling him that he is just as bad as them. So far things just aren’t going well for Jamie Watson. Then when the kid he got into a fight with turns up dead, all eyes turn to Watson and Holmes. That’s really all I’m going to say about what happens because the mystery is the fun part. Trying to find out who is behind it is so much fun. At the bookstore the book is found in the YA section. There is foul language and drug abuse that takes place in this book. I wouldn’t let anyone too young read this. Yes this book does take place with high school kids. But its a boarding school with kids that have money. They have a school drug dealer and a poker night, its more like a college. You are going to hear a lot of old names popping up. I don’t really know if there is any romance in this book. The book is told from Jamie Watson’s POV and it walks a fine line. I think we can tell more with the next book. Jamie and Charlotte become best friends. The next book come out  Feb 14th. I cant wait to pick it up. I did listen to this book on audiobook and I love it. I gave this book a 5 out 5 stars on Goodreads.

Coming Soon Feb. 14, 2017untitled.png
