Thank you so much Sweet Cherry Publishing for the gifted physical copy to read and review.

Review: What an unusual mystery book, I haven’t in my life read a Sherlock Holmes book nor watched any movies or shows about them, so I had no knowledge of the way they were written or what the book was actually going to entail, but it was very interesting.

This case took Watson and Holmes to a very odd case, a body frozen stiff and dead out of nowhere, and two men going crazy with zero no evidence of what happened, then a few days another frozen stiff death occurs and Holmes is finally able to solve and close this case.

This mystery was nothing like I’d read before and I couldn’t solve it myself at all, I literally had no idea who it was that what was doing it all or what was causing the deaths.

I love that this classic mystery has been turned into an easier to read bite size book. It’s such a great thing that a young kid can have an opportunity to read an older mystery that will intrigue and grasp them but in a much easier way.

The illustrations were so funny to see what was going on with the mystery as you turned the page, they really added to the story. It was such a fun and interesting, very unique mystery read.
