Didn't want to abandon The Shadow Box, but didn't love it. It would have been stronger if Claire had been less eager to believe in her husband in the first place; she never rang true to me. On the other hand, another reviewer referred to the book as a "popcorn read," and I agree that the reader wants to discover how it ends. :) I think I'll keep that phrase in mind for quite a few books!
from description: "After artist Claire Beaudry Chase is attacked and left for dead in her home on the Connecticut coast, she doesn’t know who she can trust. But her well-connected husband, Griffin—who is running for governor—is her prime suspect."

I haven't read anything else by Liese Sherwood-Fabre, but I'll be looking for more in this series featuring the young Sherlock and his family.
At thirteen, Sherlock already has some of his abilities of observation and reason, but these skills are still being developed. This is not the austere and coldly logical adult Sherlock, but a kid with curiosity and intelligence; sometimes annoyed, sometimes fearful, and often unsure of himself.
I especially enjoyed the character of Mrs. Holmes; she never takes center stage, but her influence and intellect play a significant role in the plot. Hers is the perceptive, observant, and curious mind depicted as guiding her sons.

I'm currently reading Letters from Tove and enjoying it very much.
