The last thing Jamie 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 great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.

From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.

Okay, A Study in Charlotte is about investigation of the kid died in their school and the prime suspects are Watson and Holmes. People have been judging to their actions and ever since they’re family is already known for crime investigation, especially for young Holmes. Watson and Holmes helping each other out to clear their name and getting the killer that wants them to get them down.

I love it. I can’t say anything else but I really do love it. Every character signifies to their right actions, especially to Holmes, of course. But being a POV with Jamie, sooner or later, you will realize how Charlotte become like a great investigator. I really like the tandem of both of them because they know already each other from the start. I can say that there’s no romance, but the friendship and trust of these two characters are dragging me off, even though they betray each other and losing trust, they know they can get back together again!

I’ve been reading this kind of books. But this book.. wew… I want the SEQUEL!!! *screams* the book leaves me a lot of feelings! I’m fan of Sherlock Holmes from the start and this perfect for everybody. Getting this book from my shelf is the greatest decision ever! I can’t easily put the book down. *sigh* I love every inch and word of this book. I really can’t wait for the release of this book. PLEASE RELEASE IT SOON…
