Who knew Sherlock Holmes would be such a marvelous vehicle to explore femininity? Here we have a collection of brilliant, complex women, all figuring out how to live in a society that tries to hush their brilliance and complexity. Sherry Thomas weaves a compelling, fun story with this embedded commentary on gender and power. I finished it a month ago and can't stop thinking about it. (The first book in the series, A Study in Scarlet Women, is a must before you read this one.)

Second in the "Lady Sherlock" series. Interesting characters and concept, but readers should definitely begin with "A Study in Scarlet Women", the first in the series.

A lovely little series - the sequel to A Study in Scarlet Women was quite solid, and leaves much open, which will be resolved in #3(?) I like these characters immensely.

This was just as much fun and just as compelling as the last one. I really love this series and I really love how it's a bunch of awesome women really running things and getting stuff done or really awesomely devious women. All in all I'm all about the representation here but I adore what's being done with the "Sherlock Holmes" of this world - and in more than one way!

In this volume Charlotte has a marriage proposal, a conspiracy involving her half brother, affairs, code breaking, Mrs. Watson, Livia Holmes, and other awesomeness that will have you running for this book and being very, very sad when it's over. Be sure to read the first one (A Study in Scarlet Women) first

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!
