Summary

The hotly anticipated and explosive third book in the New York Times best-selling Charlotte Holmes series.

It's been a year since the shocking death of August Moriarty, and Jamie and Charlotte haven't spoken.

Jamie is going through the motions at Sherringford, trying to finish his senior year without incident, with a nice girlfriend he can't seem to fall for.

Charlotte is on the run, from Lucien Moriarty and from her own mistakes. No one has seen her since that fateful night on the lawn in Sussex - and Charlotte wants it that way. She knows she isn't safe to be around. She knows her Watson can't forgive her.

Holmes and Watson may not be looking to reconcile, but when strange things start happening, it's clear that someone wants the team back together. Someone who has been quietly observing them both. Making plans. Biding their time.

Someone who wants to see one of them suffer and the other one dead.

A reasonable improvement over book 2

Having been considerably let down by the previous Charlotte Holmes book, The Last of August, I felt that I should hop right into the third installment, The Case For Jamie, and see how I got on.

Now that I have completed the audiobook, I can safely say that this book was competent; An improvement over the second novel, but didn't nearly reach the level of excitement of the first.

Personally, I felt that it was the alternating narrators that kept this book from reaching its full potential for me; it was hard to keep track of two different, but related stories told by Jamie and then Charlotte. I had to start the novel from the beginning more than once to make sure that I knew what was actually happening, yet I still had difficulties keeping track of the two main characters.

Other than that little nitpick, I don't have terribly much to say about The Case For Jamie, it was a reasonably entertaining story with a quality narration, provided by Graham Halstead and Julia Whelan.

I am delighted to hear that there will be a book four coming soon, and once again highly recommend this YA series for other Sherlockians.

Best in the series so far!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have recommended this series to multiple friends, and will definitely recommend this third entry into the series. The audiobook narrators bring the story alive, Cavallaro's writing is sharp, and the mystery is addictive.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was glad that this book didn't end on as big a cliff-hanger as the second one did, but I still hate knowing I have to wait for any more stories about Holmes and Jamie.

This book is a constellation of stars...

Everything- from the plot, to the character’s development, to the actors flushing out every critical literal detail through voice - was absolutely fantastic. I’ve never wanted to know characters in real life so badly (even though these would probably be harmful to my health), and I want this book to have forever.

Starts poorly, ends strong

What makes the previous books in the series great are the connections and interactions of the two main characters, Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes.

In this book, the characters are apart for the first 75%, which ended up feeling very unimportant and uninteresting. I was just waiting for something to happen.

The end of the book is enjoyable, but I felt that we simply didn’t get enough time with the two characters as a pair.

The narration was excellent from both Graham and Julia, both embodied their characters extremely well.
