Editorial Reviews

Review

This novel includes not one mystery, but a multitude. Anna Elliott and Charles Veley are able to weave these all together in a way that feels natural and perfectly Sherlockian. Lucy James allows for a mellowing of Sherlock's perpetually crime focused nature and the writing that Elliott and Veley do to make these characters work so well together is exceptionally well done. I cannot recommend this series enough to anyone who enjoys mysteries or Sherlock Holmes. The Nerdy Girl Express 
 
Like the Sherlock Holmes chronicled before, this new book contains memorable rogues and angels, mysteries upon mysteries and nothing and no one ever appears as it/they really are. Throw in Lucy's upcoming wedding, Watson's romantic rekindling after his wife's death and Holmes coping with being a father, a soon to be father-in-law and a new set of emotions and feelings to deal with and you have a new Sherlock Holmes tale worthy of the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle mysteries. Boyce McClain (Collector's Corner)   
 
I LOVED this book. I have always been a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. I have read bad attempts at continuing his story and some good ones. This one is amazing. The authors perfectly captured the wit and sarcasm of Holmes.  They captured the relationship between Watson and Holmes in a way that could have been written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  This is definitely a series that all Holmes fans will love. Felicia A. (NetGalley)
   
It's 1897 and Lucy and Jack are planning their wedding. But a body is found, making the police believe that Jack has returned. Meanwhile Holmes is asked to investigate the theft of diamonds belonging to Cecil Rhodes. And Watson is asked to solve a series of thefts.I really enjoy this series, good mysteries, strong characters and well-written. Although this is a standalone story I would recommend reading from Book One, if not already done so, to follow the development of the characters and their interplay. Susan M. (NetGalley)
   
Praise for the Sherlock and Lucy Series!
Cosy Christmas reading at its best! This series of Sherlock Holmes retellings is a joy to read and proves a worthy addition to the Holmesian canon. In a word . . . fun!

"It might be difficult to imagine the original Holmes even having an offspring  --  much less one he accepts as an investigating partner. Still, the authors make it seem plausible, and for readers who are not purists but rather pleased to see a hint of warmth coming from Holmes, [the Sherlock & Lucy series] is a new way to enjoy Sherlockian mysteries." -- The Santa Barbara Independent
     
"Elliott (the Twilight of Avon trilogy) and Veley, her father, collaborate on the winning third mystery pairing Sherlock Holmes and his daughter, Lucy James. Readers will look forward to Lucy's further adventures." -- Publishers Weekly  (Remember, Remember: A Sherlock Holmes & Lucy James Mystery, Book 3)

"Fans of Holmesian stories, historical fiction, and Victorian romance will all find something to enjoy in the Sherlock Holmes & Lucy James Mystery Series." -- Critical Blast
     
"[Lucy James is an] independent, strong feminist young woman who is unafraid to take care of herself even in very uncomfortable situations. This fact alone sets [The Sherlock & Lucy series] apart from most Regency historicals or other Sherlock Holmes mysteries. Women are generally damsels in distress, but not Lucy!" -- Tynga's Reviews
     
     
"Reading this novel was a very delightful way to spend an afternoon. Remember, Remember will not only appeal to fans of Sherlock Holmes, but also to those who love The Secret Life Anna Blanc, The Beekeeper's Apprentice, and A Curious Beginning. - History from a Woman's Perspective
     
"Elliot's writing style is solid and easy to become absorbed in. She gives Lucy a strong narrative voice, which caused the plot to both flow well and pack a punch. Her world building of 1897 London is vivid and skilled, making it a very high point of the novel. She unravels the mystery at a steady pace, showing her talent for creating a storyline that hooks her readers and keeps them wanting more. [...] A very fun story, and an inventive take on some very timeless classics." - The Quirky Book Nerd

From the Author

Anna and I are thrilled with the initial response to The Return of the Ripper. The story is told by two narrators, alternating between Dr. Watson's voice and viewpoint - which we try to keep close to that of the original - and Lucy's breezier, more youthful style. Once we had the basic idea, the events that followed - particularly those towards the end - seemed to flow inevitably from each other and from the earlier books. Both Watson and Lucy seemed to demand that we record them! 
We hope our readers will enjoy the result.
