The Last of August (Charlotte Holmes #2) by Brittany Cavallaro (WOW #23)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

In the second brilliant, action-packed book in the Charlotte Holmes trilogy, Jamie and Charlotte are in a chase across Europe to untangle a web of shocking truths about the Holmes and Moriarty families.

Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes are looking for a winter break reprieve in Sussex after a fall semester that almost got them killed. But nothing about their time off is proving simple, including Holmes and Watson’s growing feelings for each other. When Charlotte’s beloved uncle Leander goes missing from the Holmes estate—after being oddly private about his latest assignment in a German art forgery ring—the game is afoot once again, and Charlotte throws herself into a search for answers. 

So begins a dangerous race through the gritty underground scene in Berlin and glittering art houses in Prague, where Holmes and Watson discover that this complicated case might change everything they know about their families, themselves, and each other.

The Last of August releases on February 14, 2017, from Katherine Tegan Books

I'm a huge sucker for Sherlockian inspired books, and when I read the first book in the Charlotte Holmes series last year I got hooked to this sort of unconventional Sherlock tale. The modern day setting, female Holmes, and male narrator in the form of Jamie Watson were all amazing, and to top it off there's very little romance, in fact there's really only a small hint at a romance. I can't wait to see how these characters will evolve in this next installment and the mystery our heroes will find themselves in the middle of!

So, what are you waiting for this Wednesday?



  1. I haven't read the first book yet, bit I like the sound of it. I hope you'll love this one. Thanks for sharing, and happy Wednesday! :)

  3. Still need to get to the first one but I know lots of people loved it. I love how the covers are related and I knew immediately upon seeing your pick what series it belonged to. I'll make time for this one someday!
