Cute! I kind of lost interest in the middle during their big fight, especially since you knew exactly where the story was going to end up anyway, it just seemed unnecessary.

Overall, I really did enjoy this. Mycroft and Watts were an interesting duo. I like seeing a  book that doesn’t judge one of the main characters for smoking. The writing was sometimes a little forced, another example of when first person present tense bothers me.

SO good. These books start off a little bit slow but by the end, I was totally engrossed and couldn’t get enough. I’ve already added these to my list of books to reread, I feel like I didn’t give them enough justice by reading in spurts on the train to work. It’s the writing in this books that gets me, everything feels so real and I can absolutely see everything unfolding in front of me. And I especially love that I LOVE all the characters.
