Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well!


For this weeks pick, I chose an adult historical fiction by Sherry Thomas that came out in 2016. It takes place in London, with murder and mystery and mentions Charlotte working under the name Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes! Yes, Please! How could I not want to read this???? Plus, look at that gorgeous cover too. And now the second book is due to be out in September!


A Study in Scarlet Women
Lady Sherlock #1
by Sherry Thomas
Expected Publication: October 18th 2016
Published: Berkley Books
Genre: Adult Historical Fiction

With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper class society. But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London.

When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old—a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her.

But in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind.

A Conspiracy in Belgravia
Lady Sherlock #2
by Sherry Thomas
Expected Publication: September 5th 2017
Published: Penguin Group (USA) LLC
Genre: Adult Historical Fiction

The game is afoot as Charlotte Holmes returns in the atmospheric second novel in New York Times bestseller Sherry Thomas’s Victorian-set Lady Sherlock series.

Being shunned by Society gives Charlotte Holmes the time and freedom to put her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. As “Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective,” aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, she’s had great success helping with all manner of inquiries, but she’s not prepared for the new client who arrives at her Upper Baker Street office.

Lady Ingram, wife of Charlotte’s dear friend and benefactor, wants Sherlock Holmes to find her first love, who failed to show up at their annual rendezvous. Matters of loyalty and discretion aside, the case becomes even more personal for Charlotte as the missing man is none other than Myron Finch, her illegitimate half brother.

In the meanwhile, Charlotte wrestles with a surprising proposal of marriage, a mysterious stranger woos her sister Livia, and an unidentified body that surfaces where least expected. Charlotte’s investigative prowess is challenged as never before: Can she find her brother in time—or will he, too, end up as a nameless corpse somewhere in the belly of London?

    Oh, AWESOME picks!! As you know, I featured “A Conspiracy in Belgravia” in my “Can’t Wait Wednesday” post last week. Of course, I would have to read the first book first. But I found out about the second one recently, and got SO excited, I went ahead and pre-ordered it! Lol. I think they’re both standalones, but I might go ahead and order the first book already!

    Thanks for commenting on my CWW post earlier! Hope you enjoy both of these books just as much as I know I will!! <3 🙂
