The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes
The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes | Leonard Goldberg
1910. Joanna Blalock's keen mind and incredible insight lead her to become a highly-skilled nurse, one of the few professions that allow her to use her finely-tuned brain. But when she and her ten-year-old son witness a man fall to his death, apparently by suicide, they are visited by the elderly Dr. John Watson and his charming, handsome son, Dr. John Watson Jr. Impressed by her forensic and deductive skills, they invite her to become the third member of their deductive team. Caught up in a Holmesian mystery that spans from hidden treasure to the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880, Joanna and her companions must devise an ingenious plan to catch a murderer in the act while dodging familiar culprits, Scotland Yard, and members of the British aristocracy. Unbeknownst to her, Joanna harbors a mystery of her own. The product of a one-time assignation between the now dead Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, the only woman to ever outwit the famous detective, Joanna has unwittingly inherited her parents' deductive genius. Fans of the Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen and the Stapleton and Montgyomery series by Robin Cook will enjoy this suspenseful story, full of excitement and intrigue.

Loved it!! This book had me hooked from the start. I‘ve seen reviews lamenting the stilted love story, but it didn‘t bug me. What I cared about was the mystery and it pulled me along just perfectly. A fun escape!

My hazelnut hot cocoa has been a perfect companion. 😋

This gives me a total of 18 hours. I‘ll have to read into the night to finish the full 24.

I liked this audiobook enough to finish it, but it‘s not the best Sherlock spin-off ever. I liked the concept & enjoyed the presence of Watson. The plot is good, but there are times where simple things are explained when they don‘t need to be. Most people reading this have probably read Sherlock books and mysteries before, so it doesn‘t need to be dumbed-down. There‘s a romance but not much chemistry. Overall, a good book. @Clwojick -mystery

Thanks to Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, Sherlock's skills and spirit still live in the form of a young lady whose deductive powers seem matched by no one! In The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes, the two Watsons and the new Sherlock are out to solve a complicated mystery involving treasure, codes, and murder...couldn't put it down!

I really enjoyed this book! I thought it captured the essence of Sherlock Holmes, but still had a fresh perspective. I‘m looking forward to continuing the series.

Thought the whole concept of a daughter of Sherlock Holmes intriguing. An aged Watson is alive, but Holmes is dead. Their lives intersect with Joanna, Holmes‘ daughter when a desperate young woman arrives at Watson‘s doorstep step seeking help about her brother‘s death. Thus begins a tale with many deaths, twists and turns. Watson‘s doctor son joins the two in an investigation.

I'm a fan of most everything Sherlockian and so the first book in a new series in which the famous detective has had a daughter and she's as brilliant as her father is a must read. Couple that with the fact that this modern telling mimics the originals by giving us a new Dr. John Watson (son of the original) for a narrator and partner in crime solving, and it becomes a must read now. High marks all around!

I am in awe at this baby! First, the cover is glorious. Then, Sherlock Fucking Holmes and Irene Awesome Adler‘s daughter?! Working with Watson‘s own son? I am ALL for it! I need to finish reading the Complete Sherlock Holmes Stories first (I read them all years ago though)...

I always love a Sherlock Holmes story. I really enjoyed Sherlock's daughter but wasn't crazy about how the Watson's we're portrayed. She had to spoon-feed them some basic stuff.

Library haul!

Abby-J If you like Sherlock Holmes based fiction with lady protagonists (which is an oddly specific genre), I can‘t say enough good things about this one. 2y
SassenachTheBookWizard @Abby-J I actually have the audiobook of that! I gotta get to it soon! 2y
Abby-J @SassenachTheBookWizard I listened to the audiobook (I think it was a Daily Deal). The narrator was good, too. (edited) 2y

I enjoyed this book. Overall, it stayed true to Watson and his relationship to Holmes. The new characters- Watson's son and Sherlock's daughter- were well written.

Was skeptical in the beginning. The daughter of Sherlock and Irene? Then put her together with Watson and his son? However, I'm 1/2 done and enjoying it.
