"Cleverly crafted with fascinating characters and a plot that Conan Doyle would be proud of. Sherlock fans looking for a new series need look no further than Goldberg's well developed and fascinating tale!" ―M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author
"Adventure, murder, family secrets and intrigue are abound in this novel, which has incredible characters who are charming, cunning and smart as a whip. Goldberg has successfully intertwined historical facts with fiction, and has created a must-read novel for fans of historical mystery and of Sherlock Holmes." ―RT Book Reviews
"The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes is a nicely rendered tale that will appeal to Sherlockian readers of all shades. The language and settings are faithful to Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories. John Jr. acts as narrator rather than Dr. Watson, and Joanna is an alluring replacement for the great detective.... The rigorous, well-placed clues, an unexpected and satisfying climactic twist, and the likable Joanna make this a welcome addition to the Sherlock Holmes world." ―Mystery Scene

"The game is definitely afoot. Readers can follow along as they uncover clues, play with theories, and do their best to uncover the truth that will solve the case. There's danger, misdirection, surprises, a bit of romance, and characters that are interesting and believable." ―Gumshoe Review

There are many of her father’s characteristics in Joanna Watson. She is clever, intelligent, and relentless in moving forward to solve the case. She also does not show her emotions, which could possibly make a reader not connect well with her, but I felt it was appropriate as she is supposed to be reflecting the character of Sherlock Holmes. I enjoyed reconnecting with an elderly Watson again, and in his role as Joanna’s father-in-law. There’s also an appearance of the Baker Street Irregulars which was a light-hearted, but necessary, addition to the storyline.
This was my first book to read in this series, and I’ll look forward to reading more of Joanna’s adventures in the future.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to give a positive review. All opinions are my own.
Some purists say there is only one Holmes and one Watson but I say more like this is fine with me, I'm always eager to honor them with continued stories. This can be read as a stand alone without any loss of details. So brew yourself a cuppa, settle down in your favorite comfy chair and enter the world of Sherlock's daughter, Joanna. You'll be glad you did.
The mystery itself is well-paced, but I feel like the solution was too easily wrapped up using a trope that feels reminiscent of a Sherlock parody. Too simple.
But these are snapshots of their lives, doled out one interesting case at a time, and I still look forward to the next installment. 3.5 stars if I could, so I'll round up to 4.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
Joanna, the daughter of Sherlock Holmes, her husband Dr. John Watson, Jr., along with the aging Dr. John Watson Sr., work together to solve a mystery of missing secret treaty papers between England and France. It follows a very similar pattern to the Sherlock Holmes mysteries of old, being told from the younger Dr. Watson's point of view. It did not grab my attention from the start, perhaps as I was not as invested in the characters from the first book. (Net Galley)
I liked some of this book as it had shades of the characters of the Sherlock Holmes books from the past. The daughter of Sherlock Holmes and the son of Dr. John Watson work together to solve a mystery of the missing or stolen secret treaty papers that were to be copied seem to have just disappeared from the study of the man who was copying them for the English Government. Some of the story was by rote as the clues seem to come very easily to the investigators . The ending was just disappointing and it could have been written a lot better. I am a fan of the original novels about Sherlock Holmes mysteries so I can say that this book is likeable but not for me.
