Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers share upcoming releases they're eagerly anticipating. 

This week's pick is:
A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
Expected Publication Date: March 1st, 2016
Goodreads / Preorder: Amazon - Barnes and Noble
The last thing sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the John Watson–wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s enigmatic, fiercely independent great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability. Charlotte has been the object of his fascination for as long as he can remember–but from the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else.

Then a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Holmes stories, and Jamie and Charlotte become the prime suspects. Convinced they’re being framed, they must race against the police to conduct their own investigation. As danger mounts, it becomes clear that nowhere is safe and the only people they can trust are each other.
Equal parts tender, thrilling, and hilarious, A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy brimming with wit and edge-of-the-seat suspense. 

Though I haven't read the original Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories, I've fallen in love with Sherlock and John and their mysteries in BBC's Sherlock. I'm looking forward to reading this particular take on a classic. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Let me know!

  1. This sounds really good, might have to check it out myself. I haven't seen the BBC's Sherlock yet but I'm a fan of Sherlock. Saving in Seconds sent me over too :) .
