The Hollow of Fear
The Hollow of Fear | Sherry Thomas
Charlotte Holmes, Lady Sherlock, returns in the Victorian-set mystery series from the USA Today bestselling author of A Conspiracy in Belgravia and A Study in Scarlet Women, an NPR Best Book of 2016. Under the cover of "Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective," Charlotte Holmes puts her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. Aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, Charlotte draws those in need to her and makes it her business to know what other people don't. When her dear friend Lord Ingram stands accused of the murder of his estranged wife, Charlotte goes under disguise to help prove his innocence to Scotland Yard.

Listened to a lot of this on the drive back today, esp since I got stuck in 2 hrs worth of traffic outside Columbus. I may never return to Ohio.
This is the last one to re-read before the 4th book comes out in October!

This series keeps getting better and better! So much at stake, but as Charlotte says in her speech to Lord Ingram. “But don‘t forget, sir, that I am a queen upon this board - and I do not play to lose.” ❤️❤️❤️

Book four due in October. So ready to see what happens next!

I love this series so much. Charlotte is such an engaging heroine for all that she doesn‘t feel things like “normal” people, the mystery is good and the running plot is clever and intriguing. I broke all sorts of my own rules after I finished this and preordered the next one.

writerlibrarian The next book, coming out in October, is now available as an ARC at netgalley 3mo

TaciturnWhenReading @Verity Haha! I get it - I do that myself. And this series is perfect comfort reading. It‘s so good. 4mo
Verity @TaciturnWhenReading someone proposed a theory about the risks of saving books too long the other day: ie that your tastes may change and you‘ve wasted something that you would have loved and that has given me permission to read things sooner in a way because that makes total sense to me. 4mo

This #audiobook served as something to listen to during a night of insomnia. For some reason, I can‘t quite get into this series. The plot in this one was so convoluted that it was very difficult to follow. At one point, I wondered why the author had chosen to base it on the Sherlock books. The parallels don‘t seem compelling enough to warrant it. Why not simply invent a new late-19th-century sleuth?

I think this is my favorite of the series so far, even though it didn‘t have quite as much humor as some of the others. The narrator of the audiobook does a great job. This is my mystery/thriller by an AOC for the #ReadingWomen challenge.

Just a librarian lunching, wishing for food from the #KoBra and the next #LadySherlock.

I fell into the Lady Sherlock series by pure coincidence, but I absolutely adore it. It has just enough mystery and red herrings for those that aren‘t big mystery readers, like myself.

Intricate,complicated plot of many layers...beautifully written, with fine historical details,evoking the landscape of a manor estate,both within it‘s walls & it‘s grounds, tunnels, trails & gardens, & the streets of London, both gritty & sublime. Charlotte‘s iconic character, & original, brilliant,& inquisitive mind, make this a compelling read. Each character is distinctive, adding flavor & richness to the twisting plot. Eager for more!

Freespirit Sounds perfect😊 9mo

This is the best Lady Sherlock story yet! It is also the most personal one. Thomas really fleshes out not only the characters but the relationships around a gripping mystery. I adored watching the relationship between Ingram & Holmes evolve & deepen. Even Sgt Treadles starts to grow, & I‘m going to be interested to see how he turns out. It‘s always great to see the puzzle pieces of the mystery fall in place, but I 💜 this series for the characters

I LOVED this book and I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting today. This is the third book of the series and this time Charlotte "Sherlock" Holmes has to get the hangman's noose from around someone she deeply cares about. It was great for my mystery buff mind.

The third entry in the #ladysherlock series is just fabulous! While I thought it focused less on Charlotte than the previous two books in the series, the broadening of perspectives works well to build suspense. Overall, a great addition to the series, though I wasn't quite as swept away as I was by the earlier books.

Gah this series just keeps getting better. This was an anxiety inducing mystery - what was to become of Lord Ingram?! I was on pins and needles and wanted it to end and didn‘t want it to end all the once. The writing and world building is wonderful. Definitely need to have read the other two before this one, lots of spoilers. #readwomen

The 3rd in the series & the 1st I've read! Thomas does a great job including character back story and plot info from previous books so readers get either a refresher or can jump right in to the series.
Charlotte is a fun and fierce woman posing as mysterious detective Sherlock Holmes to make a living after a scandal leaves her shunned by polite society.
I'm excited to read the rest of this series and follow her on more adventures!

ElenaBaer I‘m so jealous ! I am anxiously awaiting this one. 13mo

You can‘t really read it as a stand alone. Having read the first two this is as good as it gets. Charlotte Holmes at her best, twists and turns, mortal peril and drama. I am not gonna spoil anything. Thomas took Holmes‘ tropes and made them her own, all of them. It‘s part of the DNA of this series to appeal to the Holmes‘ fans in a way that is fresh and new. My hope is that Livia‘s literary endeavours bare fruits soon. #TheHollowOfFear #netGalley
