Praise for A Study in Scarlet Women
"Clever historical details and a top-shelf mystery add to the winning appeal of this first volume in the Lady Sherlock series. A must-read for fans of historical mysteries." Library Journal (starred review)
RITA Award winning romance writer Thomas has come up with a completely new, brilliantly conceived take on the iconic detective. She not only offers some clever changes to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s cherished cast of characters, she also delivers a plot worthy of the master at his best. Booklist
Clever and absorbing. Thomas s gorgeous prose and expert characterizations shine in this new incarnation of Sherlock Holmes. Readers will wait with baited breath to discover how Thomas will skillfully weave in each aspect of the Sherlockian canon, and devour the pages to learn how the mystery unfolds. Anna Lee Huber, National Bestselling Author of the Lady Darby Mysteries
Gender bending is just the first sign that unusual happenings are afoot in this origin story for a revamped Sherlock Holmes series by bestselling author Thomas...There is also a tantalizing, slow-burn love story between Holmes and a longtime friend befitting Thomas' skills as a romance novelist....The ground has been laid well for future incidents in the professional and intimate life of Charlotte Holmes. Kirkus Reviews
Author Sherry Thomas didn t just insert Charlotte into Sherlock s area of expertise, she made a character completely different from the well-known man. Cute and blonde, Charlotte doesn t have Sherlock s scorn for everyone. And because she is a lady in Victorian England, Charlotte has to be creative in her investigation in order to preserve the illusion of Sherlock Holmes to the man on the street and the police. The various characters introduced are quite interesting and the plotlines are great. This is the first in the new Lady Sherlock series, and if this is any clue, Charlotte and her continuing adventures will be thrilling to read. Suspense Magazine
