Miss Moriarty, I Presume? by Sherry Thomas (audio)

As this is the sixth book in the Lady Sherlock series, I’m not going to go into a whole lot of detail. We’ve reached the point in the Sherlock series (if I understand the original Sherlock) where Holmes has come to Moriarty’s attention, and must find a way to turn away that scrutiny. It was a well-plotted story, if a little predictable in places (assuming you know the bare bones of original Sherlock), but I admit that I struggled with it. This is entirely my own fault. Somewhere around the 3rd or 4th book, I seem to have read a volume without retaining any of the details. Even though I know what happened, and remember the rehash of what happened in subsequent books, it still feels as if I missed an entire book and I’m trying to catch up on who’s who every time I start a new volume. It takes half the book just to bring myself back up to speed each time I read a new book. And that doesn’t make for particularly pleasant reading. On the other hand, these aren’t really books I’d enjoy rereading, so I haven’t gone back. In any case, other than my own faulty memory, the book was well done. I just wouldn’t recommend starting the series anywhere other than with the first book!

PS – Kate Reading is a great narrator as always!
