No Place Like Holmes by Jason Lethcoe
A book review for Booksneeze
Griffin goes to London to stay with his uncle for the summer. He knows nothing more than that his uncle is a detective and lives at 221 Baker Street. When he hears about the great Sherlock Holmes he is beside himself with excitement! What a summer of mystery and intrigue he’s in for… and then he discovers that his uncle lives at 221A and Holmes lives at 221B and his hopes are dashed. His uncle is a second rate detective living in the shadow of the greatest detective of all time. Then Griffin meets a lady who was turned away by Holmes and he and his uncle take on the case! Adventure and intrigue might be in his future after all!
I grew up reading Nancy Drew mysteries and this book was a fun read that reminded me of them. I got it more to share with my son when he’s a bit older but I was completely captured by this book. I loved following the story and guessing at the case. I also loved the way God was woven into the character’s lives. It does not disappoint as a good hearty read for my little boy and I can’t wait to share it with him! I love too that the end of the book is left wide open for more cases and I can’t wait to find out what happens next. Overall I highly recommend this read for your family (and for you!)
