When James Watson is sent to a boarding school in America, he is excited to meet Charlotte Holmes, a descendant of the detective Sherlock Holmes himself. She is elusive and generally unwelcoming, and seems to have inherited Sherlock's genius and tendency to take opiates. Disaster strikes when multiple murders happen and they are pinned on James and Charlotte. They must clear their names and catch the murderer before the trail goes cold or they are killed themselves.
I really enjoyed A Study in Charlotte. As a fan of Conan Doyle's original stories, I was captivated by this book as well- it had a great plot and even better characters. The characters were well fleshed out and had well-written development, and overall I just enjoyed the mystery and suspense of the plot. I think that readers of mystery fiction would like this book, as the main story revolves around a framed murder. People who liked Sherlock Holmes would also love this book. All in all, I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting an enthralling book to read.
