Book Review: A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas

Charlotte Holmes helps the police solve murders under the name Sherlock Holmes. When she becomes a social outcast due to a deflowering gone wrong, she relies on her wits, and a few chance encounters, to land on her feet, all while trying to clear the names of her father and sister who are somehow both implicated in a trio of seemingly unconnected and unexpected deaths. Sensible and analytical to a fault, yet not unaffected by the pull of heartstrings, Charlotte Holmes is a lively and witty new addition to the Sherlock Holmes canon.
