Book Review: Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty

LockMori“Before he spoke, I might have said there was nothing anyone could say to make anything better. But Sherlock wasn’t anyone.”

When a dead body is discovered in their local park, high school classmates James “Mori” Moriarty and Sherlock Holmes are drawn to solve the case. Sherlock looks at it as a worthy puzzle to solve, and as for Mori, well she wouldn’t mind trying to solve Sherlock. But as they get deeper into the case, Mori finds disturbing evidence that the case may be linked to her in ways that will change her entire future.

If you’re into reading or watching Sherlock Holmes themed books, movies, and TV shows,  you won’t be disappointed. Sherlock’s quirks and sometimes off-putting but still likable personality are woven into his character. Meanwhile, Mori’s inner turmoil can turn to the rage you would expect from the Moriarty character. I’d recommend it for mystery fans, Holmes fans, and fans of star-crossed lovers.
