Sherlock Holmes falls in love with this passionate young widow--as much as his cold nature will allow him to love. She is an intellectual sparring partner for him, and his match in deduction. She foils villains using common household objects and tools--much to the amazement of Scotland Yard and to the gratitude of Shelock Holmes, whose life she saves.

Can we have a sequel PLEASE? I normally stay away from Holmes pastiches that try to insert a romance in our super sleuth’s life because most of the times they fail miserably but this is not the case (neither is with “Erasing Sherlock”, another of my favorite pastiches).
