This is a great new series. Mrs. Hudson (Sherlock Holmes' housekeeper) and Mary Watson (Dr. Watson's wife) take on an investigation of their own. It's great to see women utilize their power and match wits with men in this book. Personally, I've come to a point in my life where as there is so much increased violence in our world, I don't care to read graphic descriptions of violent episodes, so I choose to mainly read cozy mysteries. In many ways, I consider this to be a cozy mystery series, so my only caution with the book is that the few violent scenes in the book, were a bit more graphic than I typically choose to read. All in all, I recommend the book and am looking forward to the next one in the series; however, I will plan on reading that one on an evening when I don't need to be up for anything specific the next morning, so I can read it all in one setting, without having descriptive images disrupting my sleep.
