Waiting on Wednesday - A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

by Brittany Cavallaro
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Format: Hardcover
Release Date: March 1st, 2016
Pre-order: [Amazon] [Chapters/Indigo]
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

Why I'm Anticipating This Title:
Everything about A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE sounds wonderful! It's a Watson-Holmes retelling of sorts with fresh new characters, a thrilling mystery, and more. Early reviews are very positive and I'm so looking forward to picking up a copy of my own. I'm so excited for March 1st!
