I really enjoyed this story, it was so much fun! I love both mother and daughter and the story and illustrations reminds me so much of the original Strand Magazine stories. I can't wait to read the next one!!!! ...more

Finished it, but didn't really like it. It started from the first image, which somehow screamed "modern pretending to be old", and the rest of them didn't get any better.

I had an opportunity to read Lady Sherlock recently and it was not only a satisfying read, but a much welcome reminder that an author's love of words and genre is infectious fun. Not only does the book serve up a heaping repast of place and time, this story also weaves in a grand adventure with scope and a love of the literature that proceeded it.

The character of Lady Sherlock is enchanting and the stakes are always high in a narrative that is smartly paced and finely drawn in detail by a true
