Waiting on Tuesday: A Study in Scarlet Women

Hey Everyone!

I've got a little schedule switch-up this week as I'm part of a review tour tomorrow when I would normally feature a Waiting on Wednesday post, so I'm changing it up and doing a Waiting on Tuesday post instead:) I always love participating in this meme, I get such great recommendations and enjoy putting new books on people's radar, so I hate to miss out when I have a schedule change!


Lady Sherlock #1
Sherry Thomas
Historical/Mystery
Available October 18th from Berkley

From Goodreads:

USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down…

With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper class society.  But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London.

When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old—a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her. But in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind.

I'm a HUGE fan of Sherry Thomas, whether she's writing historical romance or YA fantasy, so as soon as this one popped up on Goodreads I immediately started obsessing over it. I'm always up for a Sherlock-style story, and the fact that this one features a female social pariah whose demonstrating a little sleuthing badassery makes it all the more appealing. I have a feeling she's going to match wits with this unseen mastermind like no one's matched wits before ;-) Can't wait for October!

  1. Ooo, I like the idea of Sherlock Holmes being an alias for a woman. I haven't read any of Thomas' books but this sounds like one I'd like.

  6. I've never tried this author but this looks so good Jenny and I trust your judgment that she is good. Plus, I love a good mystery and a historical to boot, can't go wrong there.

  7. HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS? Like you, Jenny, I adore Sherry Thomas so THANK YOU for putting this on my radar! I was going to read this even if it was a list of groceries but a female Sherlock Holmes sounds SO GOOD. Okay, I am way too excited about this now--October can't come fast enough!

  8. I saw Waiting on Tuesday in my feed and I thought I forgot my glasses again. :) Anything Sherlock-related is pretty much a must read for me. I haven't read a single thing by Sherry Thomas because I suck, obviously, but this will fall into my greedy hands for sure.
