    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 ...

    That's it. I'm dead. Sherry Thomas has destroyed me in every possible way. The Lady Sherlock books have consumed me and somehow, this series only seems to be getting better and better with every book. The Hollow Of Fear is my favorite installment of the series so far and I'm not sure...

    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...

    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...

    First, this cover! So gorgeous. All the covers in the series have been beautiful but this one is PERFECT. And the contents more than match up, being an absolutely riveting story with plot twist after plot twist. Charlotte aka Sherlock Holmes has just discovered that her parents' coa...

    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...

    Having never read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories (my English degree is probably bursting into flames right now), it's the Robert Downey, Jr. movies, Benedict Cumberbatch series, and the recently finished Elementary television show with Lucy Lu and Johnny Lee Miller th...

    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...

    I would literally give my first born up for an early copy of this book. I don't even like kids that much anyway. ...

    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...

    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 am so excited to finally get to share my review of Hollow of Fear. I read this book with the book besties and we thought this would be the perfect day to celebrate such a fun mystery! This one is not chills, but it has tons of thrills?so don?t fear if you are someone who doesn?...

    Read as a standalone, it is probably great. Read as part 3 of a series, it is disappointing. Much of the first 100 pages is a rehashing of what happens in book 2. The relationship between Charlotte Holmes and Lord Ingram seemed to have taken two step forward only to have gone nowhe...

    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...
