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.… (lisätietoja)

I give this book a 3.75 which is the same thing that I gave the first book in the series. I enjoy it. It isn't really blowing me away. I like Charlotte a tiny bit more than I did in the first book, but overall I still don't really like her. I do feel for her though. I still like Jamie Watson. I think he is really sweet and totally in love with Charlotte. I did enjoy the aspect of travelling all over Europe trying to solve a case. That was pretty cool. So in this book it starts out with Jamie and Charlotte are visiting each others families in England. It is all a bit awkward, but then Charlotte's uncle disappears and her mother is poisoned. So Charlotte and Jamie trek all over Europe trying to solve this case. ( )

First, a quote:

When I thought of winter, I thought of those reasonable New England nights that arrived punctually just after dinner, disappearing into morning blue by the time you’d stretched awake in bed. British winter nights were different. They came on in October with a shotgun and held you hostage for the next six months.

Guess which city has milder winters, Brighton or Boston? This quote highlights two of the issues I had with this book—Jamie is consistently complaining, and he gets things wrong in a way that feels more like sloppy writing and editing than deliberate choices that come from the character. However, my biggest issue with this book is that rape is used as the main obstacle to prevent Jamie and Charlotte from hooking up, which is kind of a cheap way of handling a serious issue.

Two stars, one for August’s poet outfit (topped by a fauxhawk), and another star for Jamie’s fedora. ( )

As always, I am in LOVE with the prose. Also Charlotte. And Jamie, and the two of them as a unit.

But dear god, in this one they made their relationship WAY harder than it needed to be. There were one or two points where I was so annoyed that I literally could not keep reading, and had to put it aside for a day or two. ( )

It's been far too long since I ventured into Jamie and Charlotte's world. I genuinely, wholeheartedly enjoy the Charlotte Holmes novels, and book two was no less entertaining than book three. They continue the have the Holmes spirit, but in an updated, modernized sense. And they're fun.

I can honestly also say that this series is one of the few where I genuinely enjoy the romance. The flirting is cute, but the messy bits also feel real and possible. The drama isn't unnecessarily heightened... Charlotte's reactions are perfect to her character. Introducing August in this book was a great addition - he's a bit of an anti-hero and I enjoyed his addition to the dynamic duo and the way he always made Jamie a little off-balance. It's very nearly a love triangle, but not exactly. I liked it. I like them all. August, more than anyone else in this book, kept me on my toes and second-guessing.

Charlotte's family is a mess, though. And that's not poor writing or anything, they just are very... problematic, I guess. Reactions and behaviors are so cold and unhealthy as a general rule. I think that it's decent writing - ever the pragmatist, Sherlock Holmes was much like this himself in the Conan Doyle novels, so it make sense that his family is much the same. For the most part, I felt like the setup with both Jamie and Charlotte's families was a bit overlong and things didn't really get interesting until the two set off on their own. This didn't ruin or even deeply affect the book from the perspective of my own enjoyment, but it was a little draggy in the beginning.

The writing is really easy to read - Cavallaro's writing has a fantastic flow. It's very easy to get wrapped up in this book and it was finished before I knew it. I think with a slower pace, this book would have dragged out, but for the story here, this was written very well and was easy to get into. I really like both the narrators as well - the audiobook is fantastic, if you like to ingest your books that way.

Book two in the Charlotte Holmes series was a slam dunk, and I'm looking forward to reading A Case for Jamie! ( )
