    Originally reviewed here @ Angieville This series. My feelings for it are fierce and tangled, much like the ties that bind its protagonists. Charlotte, Lord Ingram, Livia, Inspector Treadles, Bancroft, Lady Ingram . . . characterize them each how you will, but there is nothing equiv...

    The beauty of an e-reader, at times, is that it can be difficult to figure out how close to the end you are in a book when you?re really involved in the book. Yeah, you can check the percent but not while you know you need to keep pushing on. So at one point, I was dismayed that ...

    The Lady Sherlock series has become a favorite one for me since I read book two, A CONSPIRACY IN BELGRAVIA last year. Since then have I devoured the first book A STUDY IN SCARLET WOMEN and now the latest in the series, THE HOLLOW OF FEAR. It may be prudent to start with the first book ...

    This is easily my favorite book of the series thus far. Charlotte's character has continued to develop. In addition to her intelligence, we finally get to see how compassionate and caring she is. Her interactions with Livia and Ash are heartwarming. While I loved the personal moments, ...

    Another phenomenal addition to Thomas?s Lady Sherlock series. I did not want this book to end. Though in all honestly, I may have enjoyed the sprawling mystery in A Conspiracy in Belgravia just slightly better, The Hollow of Fear is nonetheless tightly constructed and complex enough ...

    My most favorite Holmes book to date! Full review to come. *EDITED TO ADD REVIEW* I know I've said this before but it bares saying again, this series is truly outstanding. So well written, engaging and completely addicting. With a heroine unlike any 19th century heroine I'v...

    Fantastic historical mystery! Complicated characters, smart writing and an end I didn't see coming! I thought I knew who the villain would be but Thomas surprised me. I can't wait to see what else she comes up with. (Note: This series needs to be read in order & it's not a romance)...

    I've given this a straight A at AAR. It seems that my reaction, whenever I finish one of Sherry Thomas? Lady Sherlock books, is forever destined to be one of complete awe as I sit stunned, with my brain trying to catch up while I?m also trying to scrape my jaw up off the floor...

    After the sensational twists at the end of the last installment, I was left reeling and then impatient to see what happened next in this fabulous gender-bending retelling of the Sherlock Holmes adventures. The Lady Sherlock series is meant to be read in order and wouldn't do well pi...

    For those considering the story/series I recommend reading or listening in the order of their release. While each holds its own case to be solved, the overall arcs and character development scream to be read in order. In The Hollow of Fear, Charlottemust investigate her toughest...

    4.5/5 ... don?t forget, sir, that I am a queen upon this board?and I do not play to lose. Fabulous. I find Sherry Thomas's characters fascinating. Not only Charlotte Holmes (aka Lady Sherlock), but all of them. I love the female relationships. I like that these books aren't s...

    This is the third installment in Thomas's Lady Sherlock series and the first that I've read. I've always been that person who has to read a series in order from the very beginning, so when I cracked this book open I asked myself, "Who are you? I don't even know you right now." D...

    What a clever, thoroughly delightful book! At the outset, though, I wasn't so enthusiastic; set in Victorian England, with language and customs to match, I realized I wouldn't be able to breeze through this one as I'm accustomed to doing with other mysteries and thrillers. But a co...

    Fabulous, as expected, in both the written and audio versions. Kate Reading narrates, and she is the perfect narrator for this author. I have said the same thing about her performances of Loretta Chase's books, which are nothing like Sherry Thomas's, but that must be evidence of Readin...

    Charlotte Holmes is back, as unintentionally funny and brilliant as ever, along with Olivia and Mrs. Watson. This time, Lord Ingram comes under suspicion of murder when Lady Ingram?s body is found on the grounds of his estate. And Charlotte grows concerned about her sisters? safety...

    This was my favorite of the series so far. I was immediately grabbed by the personal nature of the story and how the characters have developed over each book. The way Charlotte and Lord Ingram complement each other is one of my favorite things. Their interaction in this was fabulous. ...

    Stunning. This series has been one of my favourite discoveries of the year and this instalment was brilliant, building on the events that had been set into motion during the previous novel, A Conspiracy in Belgravia. The author is brilliant at plotting all the twists and turns but Sher...

    Different gradients of incredulity flickered across his face, as he no doubt tried to decide whether she truly was comparing her lack of appetite to an instance of impotence. Hands down, no question, my favourite of the series. Once again proving why (sometimes) my stubbornness to p...

    Vastly enjoyable third installment in this excellent series. Detective novel with real heart, Holmes pastiche with real originality and difference. The romance between Charlotte and Lord Ingram finally comes to a boil here as he is accused of his wife's murder, and a lot of the threads...

    FINAL DECISION: Cementing this series as one of the most original and intriguing historical mystery series around, Thomas allows readers to delve into the relationship between Charlotte Holmes and Lord Ingram in ways that are unexpected and clever. THE STORY: Charlotte Holmes, who u...

    This is the third in The Lady Sherlock series. We don't have a Sherlock Holmes, but we have Charlotte Holmes - the female sleuth who heads up the investigations. She also has a female sidekick, Mrs. Watson. The gender switch from Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson worked well and made this...

    Women in Victorian literature were often depicted as a frail creature whose only goal in life was to wed an acceptable man and retire to a life of parties, balls, dinner and teas. Our heroine Charlotte does not reflect that image. We first meet Charlotte as she deduces that the coachm...

    I received an advance copy of this book at RWA and let me tell you, it was 100% worth fighting the crowd. Charlotte Holmes is not what I?d call a relatable character, so it?s always endearing when she finds herself in unfamiliar waters. In the first book, her anxiety over her choic...

    I love this series. Needless to say I can't wait to read more. Characters and issues like I never read before in historical books. Mystery that keeps you in the story from the get go and no matter how hard you try you still can't figure out what the hell happened. Thanks to And...

    The fact that I buy Sherry Thomas's historical novels automatically and ignore the price says a lot about my admiration for her writing. Her new Lady Sherlock series costs much more than the arbitrary limit I've set myself for escape reading, but what's a fan to do except buy them anyw...
