The Hollow of Fear (2018) (Lady Sherlock series #3) by Sherry Thomas

Under the cover of “Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective,” Charlotte Holmes puts her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. Aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, Charlotte draws those in need to her and makes it her business to know what other people don’t. When her dear friend Lord Ingram stands accused of the murder of his estranged wife, Charlotte goes under disguise to help prove his innocence to Scotland Yard.

Monday sunshine in Canberra

Today is the twentieth anniversary of the Thredbo landslide. I remember the aftermath of the disaster very clearly, and all the media attention surrounding it. Because people tend to pass through Canberra to get to the Snowy Mountains, it had quite an impact around here.

Need I say anything? All my favourites: Victorian, London, 19th-century fashion, atmosphere!

Fun fact: I nearly ended up living and working in Belgravia, but to nineteen-year-old me, it didn’t seem like a great place to be. What an idiot I am; it’s full of rich Brits. 🙂

A Conspiracy in Belgravia (Lady Sherlock #2) by Sherry Thomas

Ravishing the Heiress by Sherry Thomas

Firstly, I have to say how much I dislike the term “ravishing” in a book title!

Secondly, Goodreads has another giveaway. This one is open to people in a bunch of countries (including the usual suspects and Australia!), if you want to enter.

Some reviewers I trust have said some good things about this one.

Millicent understands the terms of her arranged marriage all too well. She gets to be a Countess by marrying an impoverished Earl. And in return, the Earl Fitzhugh receives the benefit of her vast wealth, saving his family from bankruptcy. Because of her youth, they have agreed to wait eight years before consummating the marriage—and then, only to beget an heir. After which, they will lead separate lives.
It is a most sensible arrangement. Except for one little thing. Somehow Millie has fallen head over heels in love with her husband. Her husband, who has become her very best friend, but nothing more… Her husband, who plans to reunite with his childhood sweetheart, the beautiful and newly widowed Isabelle, as soon as he has honored the pact with his wife…
As the hour they truly become husband-and-wife draws near, both Millie and Fitzhugh must face the truth in their hearts. Has their pact bred only a great friendship—or has it, without either of them quite noticing, given rise to a great love?
