Waiting on Wednesday (194)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.

This week I am waiting on The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro (2/14/17):

Description on Goodreads:

In this second brilliant, action-packed book in the Charlotte Holmes trilogy, Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes are looking for a winter break reprieve after a fall semester that almost got them killed. But Charlotte isn't the only Holmes with secrets, and the mood at her family's Sussex estate is palpably tense. On top of everything else, Holmes and Watson could be becoming more than friends - but still, the darkness in Charlotte's past is a wall between them.

A distraction arises soon enough, because Charlotte's beloved Uncle Leander goes missing from the estate — after being oddly private about his latest assignment in a German art forgery ring. The game is afoot once again, and Charlotte is single-minded in her pursuit.

Their first stop? Berlin. Their first contact? August Moriarty — formerly Charlotte's obsession, currently believed by most to be dead — whose powerful family has been ripping off famous paintings for the last hundred years. But as they follow the gritty underground scene in Berlin to glittering art houses in Prague, Holmes and Watson begin to realize that this is a much more complicated case than a disappearance. Much more dangerous, too. What they learn might change everything they know about their families, themselves, and each other.
Why I’m Waiting:
I loved the first book. I ate it up and enjoyed it even more than I was expecting to. I’m in love with the idea of a female Sherlock. Yes, more please! Also, in this book they get to travel? More is likely to be revealed about August Moriarty. And the romance is building between the two main characters? I want this like yesterday. I’m so excited for where things will go. Also, I love the consistent covers.
What are you waiting on this week?
