MY THOUGHTS ON THE BOOK
Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to review this book.
3.5 stars for me. If you
are a fan of Sherlock Holmes and strong women characters you will enjoy
this book. It is written is a very Watson style which was fun but at
times I felt it was trying too hard to be a new Sherlock Holmes
adventure. Over all I enjoyed it and would recommend it to Homes fans as
a fun addition.
