The Watson Chronicles, by Ann Margaret Lewis, A Book Review

I’ve lived a sheltered life in some ways. I had never read anything Sherlockian until I was nearly 60. And then Ann Margaret Lewis happened.

Her first book, Murder in the Vatican, drew me in. I was eager for her second book, The Watson Chronicles: A Sherlock Holmes Novel in Stories, to be released—and was duly rewarded for my wait.

The first night I had the book, I laughed and gasped until 3 a.m. Over the next couple of days, I fell behind on writing assignments as I burned through the stories. Ann’s voice, written in pastiche of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, lifted me into a world of early 1900’s intrigue, and I was hooked!

A great summer book, and appropriate for young readers. I may just go back and read it again!
