A Study in Charlotte Movie Cast
Jamie Watson – Our narrator. The great-great-great-grandson of Dr. John Watson. A transplant from London to Sherringford, he’s a day-dreamer, a reluctant rugby player, a would-be writer. Charlotte Holmes’s partner-in-crime…maybe literally, if the police have anything to say about it.
Charlotte Holmes – The girl in question. In America at boarding school for reasons that Jamie can’t quite put together at first. She’s made some bad decisions in the last few years, had some awful things happen, is self-protective and self-isolating. Charlotte would be happiest tucked away in her lab in the science building, doing experiments and playing her violin.

Thank you, Brittany!

The last thing sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the John Watson–wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s enigmatic, fiercely independent great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability. Charlotte has been the object of his fascination for as long as he can remember–but from the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else.
Then a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Holmes stories, and Jamie and Charlotte become the prime suspects. Convinced they’re being framed, they must race against the police to conduct their own investigation. As danger mounts, it becomes clear that nowhere is safe and the only people they can trust are each other.
Equal parts tender, thrilling, and hilarious, A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy brimming with wit and edge-of-the-seat suspense.
Thank you to Brittany for this giveaway!
