Review:A Question of Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro

Once, I had loved her so much it was like a needle through my heart. Maybe I still did. Somehow, though, it seemed beside the point.

Last books in series, almost always fall flat, or end up being disappointing in some ways. Although the mystery wasn’t taken as far in this final installment, I still didn’t find myself disappointed by the ending. A Question of Holmes was simply a good book to wrap everything up with.

The mystery in this book took a backseat to the characters, we no longer entertain ideas of Moriaties and their masterplans. Instead it’s a simple mystery, meant as a backdrop for the characters last developments. And as someone who always loves character focussed stories, I thoroughly enjoyed this.

The ending can to some seem disappointing, and I understand why. But to me it seemed like a natural place for the two characters to end. It felt realistic to read, that after everything they’d been through they had issues between them, and while I too loved their relationship, I don’t think i would have found a fairytale ending realistic for the two.

“I—I don’t know if I trust it,” I said. “You. I don’t know if I trust you.”

I liked this book a lot in terms of wrapping up everything that happened in the previous books, and I really enjoyed the development the characters went through within it.
