An NPR Best Book of 2016

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.



A Study in Scarlet Women, Sherry Thomas’s clever new book and first book in her Lady Sherlock series, is both an ingenious take on Sherlock Holmes and an homage to the most famous detective in the world. In author Thomas’s Victorian England, there is no Sherlock Holmes, but there is a Charlotte Holmes, a young woman adamant about never marrying and determined to set up her own household, something her parents will never agree to. To permanently forestall being married off, Charlotte manages to get herself deflowered, which makes her unmarriageable soiled goods. Charlotte escapes the parental punishment of being locked away forever by fleeing the safety of her home. But she is unable to acquire a job without references and her meager savings are rapidly dwindling. Charlotte decides to use her detection skills to set up a business to help clients. In Victorian England, no one would ever believe a woman so Charlotte must masquerade as her “brother” Sherlock.

While detection and clues are in the forefront of A Study in Scarlet Women as Charlotte, Inspector Treadles, and Lord Ingram try to discover who killed three unrelated members of society, a romance is simmering between childhood friends Charlotte and Lord Ingram. But Ingram is married to a scornful, avaricious woman and his marriage is the misery Charlotte warned him it would be.

Thomas’s brilliant decision to make Charlotte Holmes a young miss with china blue-eyes, bouncing golden curls, and a curvy figure that all but screams girly makes the contrast between Charlotte’s fluffy exterior and razor sharp mind very entertaining. Her mind is as brilliant as the real Sherlock’s and her powers of deduction are as acute; they’re just housed in the body of a young woman wearing more frills and furbelows, feathers and flowers, ribbons and tassels than four women would or should wear.

Some clever twists move the plot along and the simmering romance between Charlotte and Ingram turns steamy, making A Study in Scarlet Women an engrossing start to what will prove to be a truly arresting new series.
