The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro

Add on: Goodreads

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.

A Study in Charlotte (the first in the series) was pretty fun, so definitely looking forward to more teenage (and gender bender) Holmes and Watson adventure!

  1. Charlotte Holmes? Is she the daughter of Sherlock Holmes in this series? It sounds like a fun read.

    My WoW post.

  2. I need to read book 1! I never got to it last year but it is sitting on my shelf and on the TBR for sure. Hopefully I’ll be able to read it as this one comes out! My WoW

  3. Ooh, I am also waiting on this one! Especially because I loved book one. I liked the gender bend, and well, if it has to do with Sherlock Holmes and Watson, it’s hard to go wrong with me!

  6. I am so excited for this one! I just recently finished the first book, and it was tons of fun. And the premise of this one sounds even better!

  7. I’ve not read the first book of this series! Is it a trilogy? I was curious about book one but I’ve been limiting the amount of series I start. I hate waiting. 😀 I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it, Cyn!

    Have a fabulous week. =)
