The Beekeeper's Apprentice
Actually the mystery isn't the most important aspect of this book; for me it was the relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell that mattered. I loved how they needed each other and I loved how their relationship developed over time. Oh and for those of you who don't know about this book, it takes place in 1915 and features a retired Holmes living as a recluse in the English countryside. What a great idea.
I really enjoyed the classic Sherlock Holmes case-solving, as both he and Mary figured things out based on the tiniest clues.
Anyway, I had a great time reading this. And The Beekeeper's Apprentice is the start of a series and the next book is already on my list.
Sorry for the disjointed review - baby Shane doesn't allow me much writing time in one go, but if I didn't at least start bloggin again now I'm afraid I'd never come back, so here I am, horrible writing and all! :-)
