I love books. And I love cupcakes. I spend alot of time reading blogs about both. Then I thought to myself, wouldn't it be fun to have it all in one? So here's the plan. Here on my little blog, you're going to find book reviews (mostly YA, because I'm absolutely addicted to them) and once in while I'll show you what I'm cooking up in my little vintage aprons, recipes and all. It's gonna be fun---visit often!! :)

I am currently accepting YA books for review, but I am not accepting ebooks.
The last thing
sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the
John 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 enigmatic, fiercely independent
great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also
his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability.
Charlotte has been the object of his fascination for as long as he can
remember–but from the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between
them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else.
a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances ripped
straight from the most terrifying of the Holmes stories, and Jamie and
Charlotte become the prime suspects. Convinced they’re being framed,
they must race against the police to conduct their own investigation. As
danger mounts, it becomes clear that nowhere is safe and the only
people they can trust are each other.
Equal parts tender,
thrilling, and hilarious, A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy
brimming with wit and edge-of-the-seat suspense.
My thoughts: SO...this book has the great-great grandkids of Holmes & Watson and a clever play-on-words title to boot. My need for this book is a given. :)
