Review: A Conspiracy in Belgravia

A Conspiracy in Belgravia (The Lady Sherlock Series) - Sherry Thomas

The second Lady Sherlock novel, and even better than the first. I adored this. I stayed up too late three nights in a row reading it. One night, I fell asleep reading it and hit myself in the face with my Kindle.

 

The prose is lovely. All the characters are well realized and wonderful to read about. And the mystery is so much fun to follow along with. 

 

And the conclusion. Oh my, every scene in the last act is dynamite. Such a delight to read!

 

I really want to see a BBC adaptation of this, one book per series. Or a visual novel adaptation on my iPad. Something to take all the clothing and food descriptions off the page and into beautiful visuals for a solid story with great characters.
