The Case for Jamie Reviews

  • Allison

    I honestly don't know how I can live without this series now that it's over.

    I'M DRAINED BUT HOW WILL I GO ON

  • Jeff Zentner

    You guys, the brilliance of this book. Where do I start. Okay. Let’s start with fact that we get a Charlotte Holmes POV for much of the book. Charlotte is one of the most incredible characters ever to appear in YA.

    She is genius, hilarious, sardonic, perfectly flawed and vulnerable. I would gladly read another 50 novels with her in them. Jamie is the most perfect best friend and foil for Charlotte.

    You guys, the brilliance of this book. Where do I start. Okay. Let’s start with fact that we get a Charlotte Holmes POV for much of the book. Charlotte is one of the most incredible characters ever to appear in YA.

    She is genius, hilarious, sardonic, perfectly flawed and vulnerable. I would gladly read another 50 novels with her in them. Jamie is the most perfect best friend and foil for Charlotte.

    I really think Brittany Cavallaro is the Tana French of YA. She writes these gripping, intricate plots that tick like a Swiss watch, all rendered in these perfect, crackling sentences. She’s a published poet, and it shows.

    If you love the great worldbuilding of sci-fi or fantasy, you’ll love this series. If you love the voice and emotional intensity of contemporary, you’ll love this series. If you love the twists and turns of mystery, you’ll love this series. It truly has something for everyone.

    Do yourselves a solid and pick it up. Pick up the first two books in the series if you haven’t. You’ll thank me.

    Seriously, I LOVED this whole series, and if this is the end, I can deal with that, but I would totally love more.

  • Kayla

    A really good third book, I dont think the book series felt complete so hopefully the forth book isn't just a novella.

  • Suzanne

    I love love this series! I started it because of I am a fan of any retake on Holmes and Watson and within the end of the first book I bought the second and waited impatiently for this third book! I love the characters in this series. Even the villains are amusing. I cannot wait for more books in this series!!!!!

    My quick and simple overall: so much fun to read about the characters. Plot was once again really good!

    I just love Jamie and Charlotte so much. I love the complexity of these characters and their relationship. I didn't like this installment as much as the second book but I still absolutely loved it. I liked a lot of the relationship conflict in this book, but I thought the mystery wasn't as exciting (that's not to say that it isn't good; I still had a great time reading). I'm beyond excited that there's going to be a fourth book. I need more of this in my life. Ugh, I just love it so much. PLS RE

    Both Charlotte and Jamie are dealing with the actions of the Holmes' family from The Last of August. They haven't seen each other for over a year and are both struggling to put the past behind them. Jamie can't help but compare his new girlfriend to Charlotte and Charlotte desperately misses her only friend. Seeing them as separate people was a new experience and I think they really needed the time to heal. But they must be reunited since Lucien Moriarty is out to get the Holmes's. And the best

    Both Charlotte and Jamie are dealing with the actions of the Holmes' family from The Last of August. They haven't seen each other for over a year and are both struggling to put the past behind them. Jamie can't help but compare his new girlfriend to Charlotte and Charlotte desperately misses her only friend. Seeing them as separate people was a new experience and I think they really needed the time to heal. But they must be reunited since Lucien Moriarty is out to get the Holmes's. And the best way to get to Charlotte is through Jamie Watson.

    Leander and James Sr attempt to draw Jamie out of his funk (I'm not even sure what to call it). Simultaneously Charlotte is trying not to miss him and they're both being pulled/pushed together by the forces that be. I really enjoyed the dual perspectives. Normally, we get mostly Jamie, but this time there was a pretty even switch off and I really enjoyed that. It made it easier to get to know Charlotte and see she's actually a person rather than some of the ideals Jamie had made her into.

    Interestingly enough this book doesn't start with a murder, but other petty crimes that Jamie is being framed for. Lucien Moriarty has come for his revenge and Charlotte and Jamie are the center of that. This was such a fast paced book with a bunch of things happening. They didn't always seem related but by the end, I saw how everything tied together. The emails at the end were absolutely adorable and I need more of those.

    This series is seriously taking a deep sea dive in regards of my reading taste.

    The positive:

    - Because Charlotte and Jamie BARELY spend any actual real time together in this book there was a lot less of the unnecessary and honestly badly written "sexual" tension (aka Jamie staring/thinking/dreaming of Charlotte in "romantically" ways and apparent interest that is both creepy and honestly... what?? Why?) so that was okay.

    - It wasn't 500 pages long so it was over pretty fast.

    the negative AKA a l

    This series is seriously taking a deep sea dive in regards of my reading taste.

    The positive:

    - Because Charlotte and Jamie BARELY spend any actual real time together in this book there was a lot less of the unnecessary and honestly badly written "sexual" tension (aka Jamie staring/thinking/dreaming of Charlotte in "romantically" ways and apparent interest that is both creepy and honestly... what?? Why?) so that was okay.

    - It wasn't 500 pages long so it was over pretty fast.

    the negative AKA a lot of the same as the first AND second book:

    - Jamie is again a suspect of something

    - Jamie is again blamed for things

    - Jamie is again hurt

    - Charlotte is again a druggie

    - Charlotte is again using Jamie

    - The relationship between those two is really horrendously toxic in the worst way and i HATE that it is constantly pushed towards the romantic side when they are BARELY working as friends. WHY?

    - That all side characters are just in this book for the small moments where there needed to be someone else in it and thats it. No real developments, no real plot lines for them

    - no actual mystery, instead very juvenile "pranks"

    - More of the same suspects and more of the same bad guys

    - not a great ending

    All in all?

    i am sorry.

    I really enjoyed my reread of the first book, i still had issues with the first book but enjoyed the writing and the characters okay in the first book.

    The second book already felt like i mess without actual plot and basically just the same plot points of the first book rehashed after scrambling them up.

    This book felt even more like that. And the story split between Jamie and Charlotte didn't help the story, plot or developments of any kind AT ALL.

    I am disappointed.

    It wasn't good for me, and that makes me sad because it could have been. There are those little moments where it is clear that Cavallaro has the ideas, but it seems like she doesn't think she should step out of her writing comfort zone she created with the first book.

    For me a mystery book series needs new "villains", new cases and interested developments to keep me interesting. Not a constant repeat of what i really read.

    So sadly this did not work for me -clearly.

    I do think that if you don't mind reading very, very similar stories and don't mind not having character developments and bad relationships this will be a good read for you.

    I do hope that if/when Cavallaro writes the next book she will finally venture a bit out of the same old and try something new to make it a bit more interesting again.
