Amelia Watersfield loves Sherlock Holmes and the thrilling stories he appears in — so much so that she and her three friends form the Ladies’ Amateur Sleuth Society to discuss crimes that occur in and around London.
But when her father’s prize statue is stolen, Amelia finds herself face-to-face with a real inspector — Colin Brindley. In Amelia’s mind, Colin is Sherlock come to life, and she finds herself falling in love with him — and plotting how she can get him to engage in an affair with her.
The mystery of the missing statue is fairly easy to figure out and takes a backseat to the romance. But if you’re looking for a light, fun read, this book should satisfy.
And mystery fans, take note. DeHart gives readers a little something extra by starting off each chapter with a real quote from Holmes.
So, thumbs up.
BTW, doesn’t theÂ DeHart have the best name ever for an Avon author?
