Overview

Secret Letters by Leah Scheier

Inquisitive and observant, Dora dreams of escaping her aristocratic country life to solve mysteries alongside Sherlock Holmes. So when she learns that the legendary detective might be her biological father, Dora jumps on the opportunity to travel to London and enlist his help in solving the mystery of her cousin's ransomed love letters. But Dora arrives in London to devastating news: Sherlock Holmes is dead. Her dreams dashed, Dora is left to rely on her wits-and the assistance of an attractive yet enigmatic young detective-to save her cousin's reputation and help rescue a kidnapped heiress along the way.

Steeped in Victorian atmosphere and intrigue, this gripping novel, now in paperback, heralds the arrival of a fresh new voice in young adult literature.

I loved this book so much!!! It had the same wit and banter that the Sherlock Holmes novels all had, and you can tell the author really took the effort to make the novel pick up that same deductive edge. I thought that Dora is a great character who believes that she is Holmes' daughter and has worked for years honing her detective skills. The mystery really keeps you into the book and I always have loved books set in that time period in England. If you like mysteries and love a spunky girl who isnt afraid to go out on her own, this is the perfect book for you!!!
