The game is afoot as Charlotte Holmes returns in USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas's Victorian-set Lady Sherlock series. Being shunned by Society gives Charlotte Holmes the time and freedom to put her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. As "Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective," aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, she's had great success helping with all manner of inquiries, but she's not prepared for the new client who arrives at her Upper Baker Street office. Lady Ingram, wife of Charlotte's dear friend and benefactor, wants Sherlock Holmes to find her first love, who failed to show up at their annual rendezvous. Matters of loyalty and discretion aside, the case becomes even more personal for Charlotte as the missing man is none other than Myron Finch, her illegitimate half brother. In the meanwhile, Charlotte wrestles with a surprising proposal of marriage, a mysterious stranger woos her sister Livia, and an unidentified body surfaces where least expected. Charlotte's investigative prowess is challenged as never before: Can she find her brother in time-or will he, too, end up as a nameless corpse somewhere in the belly of London'

I absolutely loved the first book in the Lady Sherlock series and it ended up being one of my favorite books of 2016. I was thrilled to have a chance to delve into A Conspiracy in Belgravia and overall found it to be another enjoyable read. My main quibble with this one was there were too many different things going on at once with the missing brother, the coded telegram, the marriage proposal, the possible poisoning, Livia’s mysterious man, the introduction of Moriarty, etc. I was a little confused for a good half of the book about what the main mystery was because none of these happenings were getting any more attention than the others. Of course, Thomas manages to show how a lot of these are related by the end, but it was rather overwhelming for a while. That being said, the rich details, the fantastic characters, and the fun spin on the classic Sherlock Holmes universe still made for a delightful read. There were a lot of loose threads at the end of this second book and I can’t wait to see what Thomas does with them in book #3!
