A Study in Scarlet Women

I thought I’d hate this book, but I absolutely loved it! I am already onto the next in the series!

Firstly, this is my first completed read of 2020! Woo hoo!

Secondly, I love Sherlock Holmes, but I am snobby about portrayals of the character and the original tales. Immediately, when I was told about a Sherlock Holmes tell wherein the main character (Sherlock) is a woman, I said, “No, thank you.”

Geez, Barbara! Why so sexist?

Not sexist. Just a kind of purist about certain Sherlockian things, but no more! I’m a believer in Charlotte Holmes.

Read this book. Do it. Do it now.

Barbara Burgess is a writer which is made apparent by the text in this box and the box above. She is best known for being a multi-genre/multi-writing voice author who throws caution to the wind when describing her writing career - "Oh, I write children's books, holiday romance, and sci-fi. Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy. The only social media she frequents is Instagram (@hellothisisbarbara). Her desert island movie is Stargate (the original with James Spader), and she has been taking daily mug shots of her morning coffee since before Instagram was even a thing.
