It’s that time of the year when I blog, i.e., obliged to by the publicity requirements of a book release. 😀
The game is afoot as Charlotte Holmes returns in the atmospheric second novel in USA Todaybestseller 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 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?
Here are some purchase links, in case I can interest you in a copy. 😀

Adored this book and can’t wait til the next in the series. I’m an audiobook fan and Kate Reading does an amazing job making the characters come alive.
Kate Reading is amazing. I’m so glad she is the narrator for the series. And really happy you are enjoying the books!
This is a fabulous series, thank you! Can’t wait until the next book!
Thank you! Working on line edits for the next book. Hope you’ll enjoy it just as much.
I so enjoyed A Conspiracy in Belgravia! I did not realize that it was the second book in a trilogy. I felt I was missing some facts that would help me understand the clues and characters better if I had started with A Study in Scarlet Women. So I read the first book too. When I was telling my Millennial age daughter a synopsis of the book, she said it sounded like a feminist retelling of the Sherlock Holmes stories. I cannot wait until the third book comes out in October. I am waiting impatiently….
I must say your daughter isn’t wrong. 🙂 Very glad to hear you are enjoying the books also super happy to know that BELGRAVIA worked as a standalone. Thank you!
I know this is probably a spoiler, but it is driving me crazy. Who put the funeral jacket on Mr. Hayward? Makes no sense for him to have done it himself. He would have had to be walking around for who knows how long just waiting to be killed. The killer getting some sort of brownie points or other reward for each kill he makes? An accomplice?
Hi, sorry for the misunderstanding. Nobody put that jacket on Mr. Hayward, he bought it himself from a secondhand shop while running from Moriarty’s agents. He was trying to pass off as a poor man, not knowing the nature of what he’d bought, exactly. Hope this helps.
I absolutely loved this series! Will there be a book 7?
Yes, but I’m not yet done writing book 6 so book 7 will be a while. 😀
Are the Lady Sherlock books going to be published (as paperback or hardback) in the UK? I have the first in the series, but second hand copies of the next book are either incredibly expensive within the UK, or require exhorbitant postage from the USA.
Hi, Sorry I didn’t see this message until now. Alas, no UK publisher has offered to publish the books in UK. Have you tried Book Depository by the way? They are supposed to have free delivery worldwide.
