From the Back Cover
In this third THRILLING book in the New York Times bestselling Charlotte Holmes series, Charlotte and Jamie finally face their longtime enemy . . . and their feelings for each other.
It's been a year since the shocking death of August Moriarty, and Jamie and Charlotte haven't spoken. Jamie is going through the motions at Sherringford, trying to finish his senior year without incident, with a nice girlfriend he can't seem to fall for. Charlotte is on the run from Lucien Moriarty and from her own mistakes. No one has seen her since that fateful night on the lawn in Sussex--and Charlotte wants it that way. She knows she isn't safe to be around. She knows Jamie can't forgive her.
Holmes and Watson may not be looking to reconcile, but when strange things start happening, it's clear that someone wants the team back together. Someone who has been quietly observing them both. Making plans. Biding their time.
Someone who wants to see one of them suffer and the other one dead.

Now that I have completed the audiobook, I can safely say that this book was competent; An improvement over the second novel, but didn't nearly reach the level of excitement of the first.
Personally, I felt that it was the alternating narrators that kept this book from reaching its full potential for me; it was hard to keep track of two different, but related stories told by Jamie and then Charlotte. I had to start the novel from the beginning more than once to make sure that I knew what was actually happening, yet I still had difficulties keeping track of the two main characters.
Other than that little nitpick, I don't have terribly much to say about The Case For Jamie, it was a reasonably entertaining story.
I am delighted to hear that there will be a book four coming soon, and once again highly recommend this YA series for other Sherlockians.
Here, I thought Charlotte was being a little to dramatic (even for her), and Jamie was being a bit obnoxious (even for him). It's as if every fault the characters had, suddenly became their number one characteristic. It was very tiring. At the same time I couldn't stop reading. I wanted to know the ending soooo very bad (even when I was almost sure about what was going to happen).
What I did love was Charlotte's POV for most of the book! It was totally unexpected and I'm glad we finally got a chance to look inside that girl's head.
The ending did not disappoint. The book had a lot of shortcomings, but it was ok, not a bad way to end the trilogy. I just wished it had been stronger. I feel like the author had a lot of room to play with and didn't.
This may be my favourite book in the series. And, without giving anything away, the epistolary ending made my heart grow three sizes.
But when it’s good, it’s *so* good, which is why it’s still getting four stars from me. Jamie and Charlotte together are lightning, crackling off the page. Cavallaro has something really special with these characters and the world she has created - here’s hoping that she does something more interesting with them next time around.
