Review: A study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

Goodreads Description:
The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.

From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.

A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy.
You all wont believe how incredibly excited I was for this book and I am proud to announce that it did NOT disappoint!
Charlotte Holmes is just as closed as Sherlock would be, and while at first I was like, no teenage girl is like this at all, I had to keep reminding myself that this is meant to be a descendant of THE Sherlock Holmes.
However, Cavallaro did an amazing job in keeping Charlotte like a true descendant but at the same time still gave her teenage type feelings, you know which, those that you say you don't want to do, like go to a dance, but on the inside youre just like I want it all! All the clich├ęs? ALL OF THEM!
Jamie was amazing, sure he has feelings for Charlotte but never in a way that got annoying, it was in a realistic type of way in that he cares for her so much, he is happy just being in the picture at all, not needing more to happen. The moment in which you find out who is behind it all, you will GASP! Because it clicks with you just as it does with the characters!
Made ME feel like I was a genious
That is one of the best things about mystery books, when you figure it all out and youre just like omg I KNOW EVERYTHING!
Recommend it?
YES YES YES YES THIS IS A MUST FOR ALL SHERLOCK FANS! And if you aren't... its time for you to be!
