Descriere

In the explosive conclusion to the New York Times best-selling Charlotte Holmes series, Holmes and Watson think they’re finally in the clear after graduating from Sherringford...but danger awaits in the hallowed halls of Oxford.

Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson finally have a chance to start over. With all the freedom their precollege summer program provides and no one on their tail, the only mystery they need to solve, once and for all, is what they are to each other.

But upon their arrival at Oxford, Charlotte is immediately drawn into a new case: a series of accidents befell the theater program at Oxford last year, culminating in a young woman going missing on the night of a major performance.

The mystery has gone unsolved; the case is cold. And no one — least of all the girl’s peculiar, close-knit group of friends — is talking.

When Watson and Holmes join the theater program, the “accidents” start anew, giving them no choice but to throw themselves into the case. But as the complicated lines of friendship, love, and loyalty blur, time is running out — and tragedy waits in the wings.

    Savor it--this is Charlotte and Jamie's final adventure. Finished with Sherringford at last, the two are spending the summer Oxford, attending a summer drama program that was beset with troubles and a missing young woman the summer before. Finally, a non-Moriarty case for the two to work out. The Oxford vibe and surroundings are well described and I liked how easily the author wound up other ends of the various characters stories without needing them all present.

    Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson are attending an Oxford summer program before they start university. Charlotte is asked to investigate a mystery involving the drama society.It’s a quieter mystery than the preceding ones but I am not going to complain about that. I’m happy to read about mysteries at Oxford!Towards the end Charlotte makes a decision which I thought needed to be foreshadowed better and then the epilogue rushed over some things, and I wasn’t totally satisfied. I also found Charlotte’s references to things like “fall” and a “rising junior”, even though she’s living back in the UK, a bit jarring. I know she went to high school in the US but-- and as a Holmes, I’d expect her to be conscious of the nuance of words she’s using to tell her story. Minor-ish quibbles?

    I loved the end of this series (at least I assume it is the end). For three books Charlotte has been deeply broken. Her dysfunctional family, her rape, her drug abuse - all these things make her relationships fraught with pitfalls and barriers. But in this book, we finally see Charlotte find some peace in her life and a healthy relationship with Jamie. It was highly satisfying.

    As this is the last book of the series and I whipped through them so fast I didn't have an opportunity to review each of them individually, I wanted to do a little overview review on the series as a whole. Overall, this was quite an enjoyable series and the characters evolved quite a bit over the course. As the books moved on we moved from a mostly strictly Jamie point of view, to a shared POV, and onto a primarily Charlotte POV, which was also an interesting evolution. Charlotte started off a very damaged young lady, and did slowly heal with help from Jamie, who unfortunately, became a bit more damaged through his ordeals with Charlotte through the course of the books. I found Jamie's evolution a little sad because of this. However, as a whole, I really, really enjoyed this series and would highly recommend.This particular book finds Charlotte recovering from her ordeals with both her own family and the Moriartys. She is not sure exactly what her next step is, but when she is approached by an Oxford professor to assist with a mystery that ended with the disappearance of one of her drama students, Charlotte decides to take on the case, with the assistance of her Watson. This is kind of a coming of age story for Charlotte who continues to work through her quite serious PTSD from an incident that took place just prior to the beginning of "A Study in Charlotte". She is pretty confident that she wants to be with Jamie, but cannot quite be there entirely. This plays a big role in her decisions once the mystery at hand gets resolved. I found the end, as a whole, to be kind of bittersweet. Also, I would have liked to have seen what happened to Mouse?

    It's so sad to see a contemporary version of Holmes Lea e us. Ms. Cavallaro's sharp wit and humour, as well as her great mystery writing, entertained me for hours.

    I really enjoy this series. You'll need to read books 1 - 3 to really understand the relationships and references in this novel.Charlotte and Jamie attend a summer program at Oxford and have a case to solve. A girl disappeared last summer while acting in the Shakespeare play that is staged each summer. Jamie's goal is to attend class and get credit. Charlotte doesn't have to rely on education to have a future, so their goals differ slightly. They are in a good place with their relationship and work together without secrets (unlike previous books) to solve the mystery.I'm not saying anything else because it's hard to reflect on a book four without giving information away. I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the novel; the progression of their relationship works. There could be another book written, but it seemed to end the series. If the series is finished, it ends well. If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend it. I would say it's more for later 7th grade and on.

    A Question of Holmes is the fourth, and final, book in the Charlotte Holmes series and is written entirely from Charlotte’s point of view which is a different experience. I was very excited after reading The Case for Jamie to get my hands on this book. Charlotte is a very different person in this story. She is trying very hard for Jamie’s sake but at the same time she still has her past to deal with. Much is revealed in this story about Charlotte’s upbringing, Jamie’s family, and where Charlotte really is within her head. Mixed with these reveals is a mystery that takes place at Oxford University and Charlotte has been specifically requested to come look into matters.The mystery itself was very straightforward and was missing the excitement that I have come to expect. I would have been okay with that but the angst of the ill-fated romance between Watson and Holmes is just…well…..come on! With A Question of Holmes being the series ending book I can say that I wish that this series had just cut out the romance angle entirely. Sorry, but it left me feeling like Jamie deserved so much more and the epilogue gave me no relief because given the history in this series I just don’t believe it. I am torn on my feelings because I support Charlotte’s journey of personal discovery but I just feel that it was at the expense of my poor little heart. Overall, A Question of Holmes was a realistic way to end the series, given the history between the characters, but I felt a little underwhelmed.
