Quickie Review: 5/5 on GoodReads.
The writing flows so well and is very captivating, as well as it being so easy to read – to say how long ago it was written! The plot is compelling, the characters are fascinating, Sherlock Holmes is fantastic and overall an entertaining, fun, engaging read! Cannot wait to read more!!

Plot:
Doctor Watson comes back from the war and ends up sharing a place with Sherlock Holmes. There has been a murder and it’s up to them to figure it out!

Characters:
Doctor Watson – I love how intrigued and fascinated he is by Sherlock Holmes and it’s almost like he and the reader are the same person, sharing the same thoughts. I don’t know enough of his quite yet, I feel, in order to have a feel for his personality.
Sherlock Holmes: As mentioned earlier, fascinating and fantastic. He is so witty and so intelligent and yet very mysterious. The way he figures things out and explains them is brilliant also!

Negatives:
Honestly, I don’t think there are any. The story did get a little slow towards the end when we are told about the culprits past (which I wasn’t expecting to be told) but it had a purpose and survived it well.
