I received the 4 books pictured above at no cost in order to facilitate an honest review.
I love mysteries, and I have always been a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. I was really excited to get this series. The stories are well written and full of mystery and intrigue. These stories draw you in and keep you reading late into the night, I did not want to put these down before finding out what exactly happened.
I have always had a love for Sherlock Holmes, and I am intrigued by Lucy James now. She is a strong and smart female character that is easy to like.
These stories are atmospheric of the time period setting, the characters are well developed and the twists and turns in the plots keep you guessing until the very end.
I love that I can even share these stories with my oldest son and watch him fall in love with the stories and characters like I have.
