Charlotte Holmes is still masquerading as Sherlock Holmes - well, not really masquerading. Charlotte pretends that she is helping Sherlock who is bedridden while actually she is the detective. However, in this case Charlotte actually takes on the persona of Sherlock's brother, Sherrinford Holmes to assist Lord Ingraham who is under suspicion for the death of his estranged wife after her body is found in his ice house.

I thought that this episode felt a bit too staged - the house party spoiled by a broken cistern, body placed in the ice house to be discovered by the staff, unknown pregnancy, misidentification.

Just a bit too many coincidences. ( )

Book 3 of the Lady Sherlock series; Charlotte & Lord Ingrim continue their friendship and it couldn't be more important of a friendship. As their lifelong friendship is highlighted, Lord Ingrim & Lady Ingrim's relationship and the break becomes a bit of a problem as the details unravel when Lady Ingrim's body shows up on the estate. Another great mystery with Sherlock Holmes to the rescue! ( )

I have to give this 5 stars if only for the fact that I would go to bed early just so that I could have more time reading it. For all its intricate plotting, it's still the UST between Charlotte and Lord Banfield that has me smiling. ( )

I particularly enjoy how this series develops the characters as well as providing an interesting plot. ( )

Amazing!!!! I was able to follow most of the deductions, but there was certainly a few things that I did not see coming! Riveting and highly entertaining all around! ( )
