Synopsis:

Victorian England, 1880—Sherlock Holmes is at it again! But this time, instead of his faithful chronicler Watson at the helm, his tales come from another source…Mrs. Hudson, the housekeeper. A new set of tales for a new generation, Sherlock Holmes is given to us in a whole new light: “The Great Detective” before he became great. From their first meeting to her place as a permanent resident of Baker Street, Mrs. Hudson helps us rediscover the ever-logical detective who has become a literary icon. (Amazon)

Review:

Enchanted. Enthralled. Engrossed. I don’t know what else to say. I loved every moment of this story.

It is a short read (62 pages on a Kindle) and it kept me turning page after page. I’ve not read any of the Sherlock Holmes books… yes, I still call myself a reader… so this was a nice way to discover that these books might really be right up my alley. There is a central storyline that follows throughout the book, but interspersed are several ‘mini-mysteries’ that keep your mind active. There isn’t too much to swallow all at once so you can focus on a quick story while still watching a beautiful relationship unfold. It gives the audience a look at the more gentle, personal side of Mr. Holmes.

I absolutely loved this story and will go out of my way to read more about Sherlock Holmes.
