I read Meyer's The Seven Per Cent Solution years ago, and I still tend to choose books linked to Sherlock Holmes. As in this case, many of these books have the premise of rediscovered writings by Dr. Watson.
Although based on true events, there are some unnecessary liberties taken pertaining to real people that bothered me. The descriptions of Holmes differ as well.
I wish I'd liked it better.

Sherlock Holmes/Historical Fiction. Oct. 15, 2019. Print length: 246 pages
A novella introducing Katerina Mills, college student, who has worked for a lawyer and is now doing temp jobs to help with her expenses. Katerina gets a call from one of her ex-boss's clients and finds herself in a room with a naked man pacing erratically, an unconscious woman in his bed, and a termagant wife due to arrive shortly.
Katerina's successful extraction of the woman, sending her home to her husband before either spouse becomes aware of the affair, leads to an offer she finds hard to refuse: fixing problems for the rich and powerful. Kat needs the money and reluctantly accepts the offer.
I like the premise, but there were a number of things that I found less appealing. The next book, which is full length, is on my list. I'll make up my mind about the series after reading the next entry. :)
Suspense. 2015. Print length: 349 pages.
I've been busy with Halloween projects. I seem to have paint or glue on my hands all the time now because my favorite decorations are for fall and/or Halloween. :)
The bottles have been fun.
I love playing with tiny skeletons--this one went in a cone.
