[Waiting on Wednesday] A Study in Charlotte

O Waiting on Wednesday é uma rubrica semanal, da autoria do Breaking the Spine, na qual se posta sobre o lançamento dos livros mais aguardados.

E esta semana no WoW, A Study in Charlotte de Brittany Cavallaro, uma espécie de adaptação moderna de Sherlock Holmes, com os descendentes do próprio Sherlock e do inseparável Watson, como protagonistas. Gosto muito da ideia, embora já tenha experimentado outro livro do género (Every Breath da Ellie Marney) e não tenha corrido muito bem, mas não deixo de estar animada para o Study in Charlotte e sobretudo para conhecer esta Charlotte Holmes.

Este volume é o primeiro de uma trilogia.

Sinopse: 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.

    I can’t wait to read this one too. Nice pick!

    • Looks really good, right? I love a good mystery. I also like how the heroine is described in the summary, the whole “volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability”. Sounds like my kind of heroine.
