Book Review: The Case for Jamie

Title: The Case for Jamie (Book 3)
Author:
Series: Book 3
Page Count: 349
Publisher: Katherine Tegan Books
Type of Book: Library Hardback
Genre: Mystery, Young Adult
Rated: 4/5 stars

The third book in the fabulous Charlotte Holmes is one of my favorite books of the year, and the series continues to grow with characters that make appearances and references to the first original Sherlock Holmes, in this case (see what I did there?) to the Reinchbach falls. I still favor Watson over Charlotte-while Charlotte grew on me through this book, I still liked Watson’s character rather more, for being more personable.

The two characters deal with the reappearance of Lucien Moriarity, who is up to his usual evil ways, though you admittedly don’t see a whole lot of that till the last half of the book. It’s the case of everyone plotting to make Jamie’s life miserable, and Jamie is utterly convinced that Lucien is behind everything, while everyone else is insisting Jamie is slowly growing crazy based upon the events of the last two books, well he knows that he has a new case on his hands. One where he hopes that Charlotte will come out of hiding and help him, despite his having a girlfriend named Emily.

I always found Emily to be a bit of a suspicious character, though I couldn’t place exactly why. I wasn’t surprised that she was (spoiler alert). Yeah, I’m not including spoilers, but I am pointing out how I felt about the characters.

Other than the characters of which I liked, the book felt to me that it dragged a bit through the middle, but at the end it was a resounding hit, meaning that I liked it enough to give it 4/5 stars. I definitely will continue with reading this series, as its loads of fun, though admittedly this book was a bit darker than the other two..

Overall, 4/5 stars for a job well done!
