A QUESTION OF HOLMES by Brittany Cavallaro: The Charlotte Holmes Series Conclusion

A Question of Holmes, (Charlotte Holmes, Book 4) by Brittany Cavallaro

Cavallaro’s contemporary Holmes and Watson retellings stand out in recent YA novels for their clever dialogue, intriguing plots and complex characters.  I have enjoyed all the mysteries and was not pleased to learn this was to be the conclusion to the series.  But despite my misgivings, I whole-heartedly enjoyed the final chapter.  In this book, Holmes and Watson have a chance to reset their romance and start again, this time with their solid history and a sense of trust between them.  But while attending a summer program, they are drawn into a murder mystery–a new case for Charlotte.  The plot revolves around a “cold case” of the summer past and is set in the theatre group at Cambridge.  I found the conclusion to be very satisfying, allowing some sweet closure, and imaginings of this dynamic duo’s further adventures.  Kudos to Cavallaro!  I await her next books with eagerness.
