I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.

Lock & Mori was one of my favourite books this year, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on book 2. When the opportunity came up to be a part of the blog tour, I jumped at the chance, so thank you Hannah, and the team at Simon & Schuster!

After the ending of Lock & Mori, Mori is now feeling somewhat safe. Her father has been arrested, and she and her younger brothers are safe from hi

In LOCK & MORI: MIND GAMES, Heather W. Petty has written a tight, intriguing mystery filled with interesting twists and turns and several unique Sherlock Holmes references. Though it ends in a cliffhanger, the path to that point contains such a captivating storyline with well-drawn, compelling characters (and a pinch of small side cases to appeal to young Sherlock Holmes fans), that the story is well worth the time it takes to read it and wait for the next installment.

The story begins shor

Mind Games picks up shortly after the arrest of Mori’s abusive father … and even though he is behind bars she still doesn’t feel safe! The police have received anonymous tips that implicate Mori in the deaths of the Regent’s Park Killer and she has started to receive threatening notes at her doorstep. Thankfully she has the ever present Lock to lean on and help her figure out who is threatening her safety and innocence. His brilliant (if frustrating) mind will certainly be able to help her ...more

Mind Games is the second book in Petty's Lock & Mori series and the young Sherlock and Moriarty are in the thick of things.

Mori's number one goal throughout the entire book is to make sure she protects her brothers. That means her father must stay in jail. But she is receiving threats, and someone is trying to frame her for all of her father's murders.

I didn't enjoy Lock & Mori as much in this installment. The entertaining banter I mentioned in my review of Lock & Mori was nonexisten

I really wanted to like this series, but it just isn't the one for me. The girl is too self-absorbed to be a good main character.

*My Thoughts*

Mind Games, by author Heather W. Petty, is the second installment in the Lock & Mori series. This series is a modern day take on the Sir Arthur Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and his would be criminal mastermind & nemesis Professor James Moriarty. In this retelling, James Moriarty is a 16-year old female with a brilliant mind for the math's, while 16-year old Sherlock remains the same aloof, intelligent, but nerdy detectiv

I'm putting this on hold until the full series is out. I'm too nervous about what is going to happen to these characters and their stories. Prequel stories when you know it doesn't end well for them, are always hard for me. Though I did really enjoy Lock & Mori.

Omigosh it has a cover SOMEBODY PINCH ME I' M DREAMING! Can't believe I will have to wait until September . It's going to be agonizing . :c:c:c What does Mind games mean for the plot ? Will Mori turn on Lock I NEED TO KNOW.I have a feeling this book is going to raise the stakes ( as if they weren't high enough ?!:))

I don't normally get so hyped over a book, but I sincerely love Mori so much. I just want more of her and Lock being awkward clever geniuses.
