Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

from Katherine Tegen Books
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.

Then 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. :)

  4. So there for this book! I cannot wait. And will definitely feature on my WoW list further into the year. My WoW pick today is for a book coming out next week.

    Happy Reading! I see you've got Beastly Bones which makes me all kinds of jealous, because I really would like to read it now rather than having to wait.

  6. I heard about this book a week or so ago, but I COMPLETELY misread the synopsis... For some reason I thought both teens were descendents of Holmes, and that this was a book about kissing cousins (however distant they would be that many generations apart). So, I'm very very glad you posted this, because now I see how wonderful this looks! I'm adding it to my TBR for sure.

    Here's my Waiting on Wednesday post.
