"As "Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective," Charlotte Holmes has solved murders and found missing individuals. But she has never stolen a priceless artwork--or rather, made away with the secrets hidden behind a much-coveted canvas. But Mrs. Watson is desperate to help her old friend recover those secrets and Charlotte finds herself involved in a fever-paced scheme to infiltrate a glamorous Yuletide ball where the painting is one handshake away from being sold and the secrets a bare breath from exposure. Her dear friend Lord Ingram, her sister Livia, Livia's admirer Stephen Marbleton--everyone pitches in to help and everyone has a grand time. But nothing about this adventure is what it seems and disaster is biding time on the grounds of a glittering French chateau, waiting only for Charlotte to make a single mistake."--… (mer)

This is the third book I have read in this series and I continue to enjoy the characters and their subplot activities as well as the main story. ( )

This is my favorite one so far. The characters are rounding out and the mystery was far more intriguing than those of the past. I was delighted by the introduction of the maharani and also by the many feminist references throughout. Fun read. ( )

Absolutely amazing! Do I want all the outfits? Yes. ( )

This was a bit of a change from the bedridden Holmes/Charlotte Holmes story we have been following so far. To aid Mrs. Watson's old friend, the entire group (even sister Olivia) goes to France to undertake a bit of larceny to retrieve documents relating to blackmail. There is a bit of levity here--sure seems like a heist movie at times, with a lot of preparation for entering the chateau, extra storylines involving other types of blackmail and art forgery. It was a good read and fun to see these characters performing under slightly different guises. ( )

This is more of a heist story than a murder mystery, which may explain why I found it less compelling than The Hollow of Fear, although admittedly, it has its suspenseful sequences.

Thomas does some interesting things in expanding her portrayal of the era as well as Mrs Watson’s story, taking Charlotte Holmes and her trusted associates to France on a mission along with someone from Mrs Watson’s past. I liked that Livia Holmes gets to play a more active role in those adventures.

But I expected to like this more. Perhaps it was the frame of mind I was in; perhaps I was more inclined to be disappointed that there weren't greater developments in the Holmes sisters’ personal lives because the main plot didn’t appeal to me as much. However I’m still interested in the next book, out later this year. ( )
