Waiting on Wednesday (65): A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week:

By Brittany Cavallaro
Release Date:  March 1, 2016
Published by 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. (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads.)

I feel like a bit of a fraud because I have yet to read any of the original Sherlock Holmes stories (although I own some), but I LOVE the BBC show, Sherlock. And this kind of retelling or adaptation sounds so good! I’m glad we don’t have to wait much longer for it!

What book are you waiting on?  Let me know, or leave a link to your WoW post in the comments, and I’ll try to stop by your blog!

    I read this! It was for the arc tour, so I don't own it, but I really enjoyed it. I haven't read any of the original Holmes books either (although I think I listened to a few stories with my dad on audiobook, it was a long time ago).

    I have yet to read the original Sherlock stories either – I do own a copy and I had actually attempted to start it but life got busy before I could make it far enough for it to make an impression. I am quite excited about this one nonetheless though^^ It sounds brilliant! Awesome pick Andrea xx

    I also love the show, and I have been looking forward to this release! The original stories are really good, they don't take long to read! I would recommend the Speckled Band or a Study in Scarlet to start. This book looks amazing though, can't wait to read it!
    here's my WoW!
