A Question of Holmes: 05/08/19
A Question of Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro is the fourth and final book of the Charlotte Holmes series. Charlotte and Jamie have left the boarding school and are in a pre-university summer program. They feel like they might finally be safe.
But before they're even unpacked, Charlotte is drawn into a new mystery involving accidents with the local theater troupe. She decides to join them to figure out what's going on.
After all the personal drama of the previous books, this one read like a YA cozy. It was fun in the moment but the plot honestly isn't sticking with me.
This one was also exclusively written in Charlotte's point of view which is odd. Holmes mysteries — and it doesn't matter which Holmes it is — don't work the same from the detective's point of view. Holmes are mysterious and hard to interpret, even by their long time friends. That distance is what makes the mysteries work.
There is an epilog that gives the author and the series a way to evolve into a New Adult or just Adult series at some later date. Were that to happen, I would read the new book.
