Reviews The Case for Jamie (Charlotte Holmes #3)

  • Jeff Zentner
    You guys, the brilliance of this book. Where do I start. Okay. Let’s start with fact that we get a Charlotte Holmes POV for much of the book. Charlotte is one of the most incredible characters ever to appear in YA.She is genius, hilarious, sardonic, perfectly flawed and vulnerable. I would gladly read another 50 novels with her in them. Jamie is the most perfect best friend and foil for Charlotte.I really think Brittany Cavallaro is the Tana Fr...

    I love love this series! I started it because of I am a fan of any retake on Holmes and Watson and within the end of the first book I bought the second and waited impatiently for this third book! I love the characters in this series. Even the villains are amusing. I cannot wait for more books in this series!!!!! My quick and simple overall: so much fun to read about the characters. Plot was once again really good!
  • Shaun Hutchinson
    Seriously, I LOVED this whole series, and if this is the end, I can deal with that, but I would totally love more.
  • Allison
    I honestly don't know how I can live without this series now that it's over. I'M DRAINED BUT HOW WILL I GO ON
  • Dawnie
    This series is seriously taking a deep sea dive in regards of my reading taste. The positive: - Because Charlotte and Jamie BARELY spend any actual real time together in this book there was a lot less of the unnecessary and honestly badly written "sexual" tension (aka Jamie staring/thinking/dreaming of Charlotte in "romantically" ways and apparent interest that is both creepy and honestly... what?? Why?) so that was okay. - It wasn't 500 pages lo...
  • Kayla
    A really good third book, I dont think the book series felt complete so hopefully the forth book isn't just a novella.
  • Shortcake
    WOWOWOWOWOWWhy is it that every book ends with either Jamie or Charlotte in the hospital?I LOVEd this, but it took a long time for the action & excitement to filter in--more than halfway through the book we actually get a real mystery. I just wish it had happened a little sooner.I absolutely adore Watson, he is the bestest thing ever, and Holmes is such a soft cinnamon on the inside. We were able to see some of that from her pOV in this book.Thei...

    i don't know what it was about this book, but i found it significantly more enjoyable than the first two.but that may have been because of the epilogue, which i found very adorable.i am not surprised by the addition of charlotte's POV in this book. most of the time, when it was not current events, it was her past, as if to somehow justify the character from books one and two. i found that i don't care, which might make me a bad person? but truthf...

    5/5 STARS! I am super happy to give this book 5 stars, especially after the not-so-great second book. But the final book in the Charlotte Holmes series completely lived up to the high expectations put in place by book one. All the qualms I had with the second book (confusing writing, confusing plot, confusing choices made by characters) were completely cleared up. The writing was tight and fast-paced once more, and the storyline was intricate and...

    I would have liked to see more resolution for the secondary characters in this series (and more Lena in general) but this entire series has basically been about Holmes and Watson ignoring everyone but each other SO WHATEVER TAKE THOSE PAGES AND ADD MORE ~MOMENTS~ I AM FINE WITH THAT.Anyway, my heart is dead. Jamie + Charlotte = True fucked up Love and I will always want more.
  • Brittany
    If you read the second book of this series and are hesitating about reading this book then allow me to settle your nerves and recommend to you that give this one a shot. This book was so much better than the second book. This easily was the best book out of the three and is a lot different than the other two. Firstly, we get the story in both Charlotte and Jamies POV's. The POV's switch each chapter, which admittedly isn't something that I was cr...
  • Kyera
    As a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes, I was intrigued by the series from its premise. Brittany Cavallaro does a wonderful job bringing a new generation of detectives to life in Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson. Overall, the series is highly enjoyable and I would recommend it to fans of Holmes and Watson who would like to see a modern take on a similar duo. The two are not carbon copies of their predecessors, but they are quite similar which is what ...

  • Maria (Netherreads)
    This was VERY open ended and had not enough Jamie and Charolette moments ...just saying.Actual review spoilers may be present because it is the third book in the series:Hello guys- Welcome to the Nether! Today I’m going to be talking about The Case for Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro. This is the third book in the Charlotte Holmes series, and I have made reviews prior so look at those before looking at this one if you don’t want to be spoiled. I ...
  • Caitlyn
    A case of juvenile, prank-level threats, misplaced high stakes, baffling climax and directionless plot, and not enough, no, no, not enough at all.Perhaps I preferred the enigma Holmes over the girl Charlotte, whose brokenness was not explored nearly enough.All smoke, no fire. A sorry letdown.
  • Christina (christinareads_)
    Review also on Christina Reads and BlogsWarning: There may be spoilers for A Study in Charlotte and The Last of August. If you have not read this book and do not wish to be spoiled, please don’t read this! Thank you.The Case for Jamie was one of my most anticipated books for 2018, and it was definitely worth the wait! One year has passed since August Moriarty was murdered and Jamie parted ways with Charlotte. Jamie tries to go back to how life ...
  • Christy
    5 Stars does not do this book justice. I love:1. Charlotte’s journey and self reflection. There was more Charlotte than ever and the payoff is real. 2. Leander. Uncle Leander is an unsung hilarious side character. I need a novella. 3. Jamie. Oh Jamie. You are swoony. 4. Basically everything. This series and this book are flawless. Come for the Sherlock/Holmes element, stay for the heart. It’s worth it.

    SPOILER ALERT: This entire review is basically a spoiler. I just didn't want to hide it in it's entirety, so this is the warning.Did I totally stay up until 1 AM while sick just to read this book? Yes, it was the rational decision to make on a school night. So let me start by saying this, for about half the book I was completely enraged at both Charlotte and Jamie for being so dumb. Seriously, we knew from the first book that they were like apple...
  • Kathy MacMillan
    Given how much I absolutely adored the first two books in this series, it will come as a surprise to no one that I savored this third installment twice, just basking in its awesomeness, before I could bring myself to review it. I was afraid, in the beginning, that this would be an anxiety-inducing book, because the idea of Jamie and Charlotte being apart was difficult for me. But Cavallaro is such a masterful storyteller that even when they are a...
  • Rebecca
    Finally, there are Charlotte POV chapters! I feel it was one of the main problems with this series to date. While there isn't a murder investigation, I found myself enjoying it nonetheless. I adore Jamie and want to put him in bubblewrap for safekeeping. I cannot wait for book 4. (view spoiler)[ I hated that Jamie and Charlotte were apart, but they seem to have matured in this third installment (hide spoiler)]
  • Shelby Wilson
    I loved this installment! The characters develop so well in this book and I loved seeing Charlotte’s perspective. The plot took a crazy turn, and I wasn’t expecting it (which doesn’t say much because I am extremely gullible). Such a great book!
  • Wayland
    Actual rating: 4.5/5. I loved this one so much! I felt like the characters really developed in this one, the plot was good but not all over the place, and the pacing was wonderful. My favourite of the series so far (can't wait for the next one)!
  • Claire B.
    I really like this series! Each book I keep expecting to be unimpressed but I consistently enjoy them thoroughly.
