The hotly anticipated and explosive third book in the New York Times bestselling 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.

She is the author of the poetry collection Girl-King (University of Akron) and is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I struggle so much with this series. So I'm 3 book into this series (when was there suddenly a 4th book being published??) and I'm still struggling with it. At this point, I'm pushing through because I've gotten this far. I was definitely able to get through this one quicker, but I can't say I enjoyed it any more. I know my problems with this series stem from my extreme dislike for Charlotte. I know, I know, I know she has many reasons for being the way she is, but that can only make me sympathize so much. Her relationship with Jamie is so toxic and her constant lying makes me so angry. There is so much miscommunication because she simply can't relay any emotions or thoughts to Jamie, which puts him in danger or in trouble half the time. Jamie is easily my favourite character in this series but he keeps relapsing into the idea that Charlotte is the only one for him and it's extremely frustrating as a reader. Like move on dude, she isn't good for your damn health. The plot in this one also felt repetitive in comparison to the previous two books. I'd like to see some fresher plots. Guess I'll be reading the 4th - and last? - book next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The series keeps going strong! I love A Study in Charlotte, and I love The Last of August, and when you enjoy books that much, getting the next in the series is always a bit nerve-wracking. What if it's not as good as the last one, and you end up feeling disappointed at the end? Not to worry, Brittany Cavallaro is just as good as ever in this third book! (I found myself just a bit confused at the beginning, however, but it's also been a year since I read TLoA, so I do recommend rereading it in preparation for JAMIE, or at least a summary blurb or something.) This is a solid mystery story, where I honestly did not see twists coming, and more than once I wondered how our characters would come through situations unscathed. I really appreciate that Cavallaro writes characters who are not just 'good' or 'bad,' but live somewhere in the grey with real motivations. And, if you haven't heard, this trilogy has been extended by another book, A QUESTION OF HOLMES, due out next year!
