*I received and ARC copy from Netgalley which I have voluntarily chosen to write an honest review for. Expected publication date is September 12, 2017 though I admit that it may be out already because Amazon had me a little confused.
Book two in the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery series. Gemma still owns and runs the Sherlock Holmes Emporium and Jane still runs the tea shop. Gemma is contacted last minute with a request to host a popular author of current Homes type books. So last minute that she has like 72 hours or less to prepare. She decides she can pull it off so she agrees to the arrangements despite the short notice. Things are going fine until the actual event when a local man comes in to argue about how wrong she got the Holmes character and the author collapses dead. It quickly becomes apparent that she was murdered and being very like Holmes Gemma cannot help but investigate. She finds some juicy secrets along the way and the murderer was a bit of surprise. Overall this is an excellent cozy mystery that has a cast of characters a reader can love and enough action/suspense to keep you turning the page. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
