"USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down... With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper class society. But she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London. When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She'll have help from friends new and old--a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her. But in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society's expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind"--… (mere)

I am Not finished yet BUT - It is SO SO GOOD! I LOVE IT - what a Great Story!
I Just absolutely love the whole premise of this book. What a great twist and so very believable! ( )

Even though I found the opening act confusing I'm always happy to read a story with a precociously intelligent woman in the lead. The addition of a bit of fizzle with Lord Ingram leading to heaving chests was amusing. Will read more in this series. ( )

This is the first in the series and it was hard to understand, at first, you really have to pay attention and then you have an 'oh okay I get it' moment. Then everything makes sense. and becomes an enjoyable book. ( )

A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas is a 2016 Berkley publication.


Charlotte Holmes never wanted the traditional life of marriage and children. Her plan to save herself from such a fate left her in ruins, kicked out of society, and onto the streets, to fend for herself.

When three deaths occur in quick succession, Charlotte’s sister and father are prime suspects. Charlotte, with the help of her new widowed companion, a police inspector, and an old love interest, launches her own investigation, under the presumed name of Sherlock Holmes.

While Charlotte must continue to adhere to societal norms, her alter ego opens doors and passageways for her to bypass those limitations, allowing her to solidify the uncanny reputation of the great detective- Sherlock Holmes…

I read the fourth installment in this series a while back and became an instant fan, despite not knowing the entire backstory. The hints about Charlotte’s past compelled me to read the previous three installments before tackling the next installment. I’m so glad I did!

There are so many various Sherlock Holmes pastiches out there, some good, some not- but I always think it wise to approach such an artistic liberty with a legendary character with some skepticism. I see that the author has been quite respectful of Holmes’ observation skills, and even has Charlotte explain how she came to have such an unusual talent. Thomas cleverly flips the genders of familiar characters, which is genius and works beautifully!

Charlotte’s first case, she gets a crash course in real life, learns some painful truths about her parents, and manages to solve three murders. I have a little more insight into Charlotte’s character now that I know her background and how she managed to become Sherlock Holmes and how she came to know the recurring characters.

I am looking forward to seeing how Charlotte’s character develops from here, but, of course, let’s not forget the mysteries- which is what we came here for! The case in this book was very well constructed- and executed, and I’m looking forward to seeing the amazing Holmes solve more mysteries, along with and her supporting cast!

I enjoy both the plot and the unique approach, e.g., Sherlock Holmes in disguise, of these books. ( )
