Review Quotes ""Elliott (the Twilight of Avon trilogy) and Veley, her father, collaborate on the winning third mystery pairing Sherlock Holmes and his daughter, Lucy James. Readers will look forward to Lucy's further adventures."" -- Publishers Weekly (Remember, Remember: A Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James Mystery, Book 3) ""Fans of Holmesian stories, historical fiction, and Victorian romance will all find something to enjoy in the Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James Mystery Series."" -- Critical Blast ""[Lucy James is an] independent, strong feminist young woman who is unafraid to take care of herself even in very uncomfortable situations. This fact alone sets [The Sherlock and Lucy series] apart from most Regency historicals or other Sherlock Holmes mysteries. Women are generally damsels in distress, but not Lucy!"" -- Tynga's Reviews ""It might be difficult to imagine the original Holmes even having an offspring -- much less one he accepts as an investigating partner. Still, the authors make it seem plausible, and for readers who are not purists but rather pleased to see a hint of warmth coming from Holmes, [the Sherlock and Lucy series] is a new way to enjoy Sherlockian mysteries."" -- The Santa Barbara Independent"
