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.

    i don't know what it was about this book, but i found it significantly more enjoyable than the first two.

    but that may have been because of the epilogue, which i found very adorable.

    i am not surprised by the addition of charlotte's POV in this book. most of the time, when it was not current events, it was her past, as if to somehow justify the character from books one and two. i found that i don't care, which might make me a bad person? but truthfully.

    truhfully, i never liked either her or jamie

    truhfully, i never liked either her or jamie much anyway so i guess it makes no difference whatsoever. (i guess you could ask why i even bothered to listen to this then, or continue the series, and the answer is: i don't know but i guess i like things that annoy me?) (is that a form of masochism?)

    anyway, though. i'm kind of worried what the fourth book will bring because i feel like this ended on a somewhat decent note? but, anyway! i'm glad i liked this. technical rating would be like 3.75-ish stars because why not.

    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!

  • Dawnie

    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.

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.

    The Case for Jamie is a novel that differs quite a lot from the first two books, mainly because for the first time after A Study in Charlotte, Jamie and Charlotte are separated. While the previous books offered already a dual POV, this time the two are gonna work on their own, using their mind and not actually following each other in an untangled mess of lies and feelings.

    The Case for Jamie is a novel that differs quite a lot from the first two books, mainly because for the first time after A Study in Charlotte, Jamie and Charlotte are separated. While the previous books offered already a dual POV, this time the two are gonna work on their own, using their mind and not actually following each other in an untangled mess of lies and feelings.

    It's time for both to face what happened before, how they relate to one another. Especially for Jamie. Cavallaro explores the aftermath of what meeting Charlotte, along with all the traumatic events, have affected Jamie.

    Is a thing that I appreciated a lot. I will not express myself about the representation in details, because I'm not an expert and so contemplating the accuracy of it isn't really my place. But here's a thing that I felt after having finished this book.

    While between Jamie and Charlotte there's a tender feeling and much more, at the same time both confront their past and current relationship. While Charlotte needs to heal her opwn wound by herself, trying to do what is right, even in her own way (which is not always right), for Jamie is kinda different.

    Parts of Charlotte's past are revelead, opening a new (again) eye on her behaviour. While a part of her own story and way to act recall of myself, I was interested to see Jamie realizing that Charlotte has done him quite a lot of wrong things. From lieyiong to not informing him of what was happening, using him around without context. Because yes, Charlotte does some s**t.

    And at the same time things don't change that much, even if the end might open a new possibility for both, to actually heal and confront eachother without Charlotte manipulations. Maybe re-starting as friends. Because that's also the thing: the set of limits and boundaries.

    The case itself was a bit creppy, full of decives and I couldn't not getting wrapped into it... even if I noticed how reading thrillers/crime young adult is something that I love at the start and I simply start to follow going on.

    Some twist left me if not shocked, at least surprised and worried for the characters. As kind usual for this series, I didn't feel the supposed villains as similar to an actual person but more like a figure. A lot of their own issue are explained by the major characters themself. Also, new secondary protagonists come out during the story and the implicationms all around them are quite heavy but only slightly explored.

    At this point, I've the feeling that this third book wasn't so focused on the case itself like the first two. While the plot is anyway deeply fused with the characters' moves, a lot of character driven side lead the plot in its complexity. Also, the fact that a fourth book will coming raise few questions.

    But another point is that many things happen but  still looked like something not important as much as the relationship between the protagonist. While at the same time being really a particular kind of glue that kept all togheter.

    So, will I've som mixed feeling with the plot itself, I appreciated many things. I think that Cavallaro didn't tried to describe an ideal relationship, but exposed ugly and good sides, a story with layers and nuances. Something realistic but still nothing ideal.

    In the end, I liked The Case for Jamie as much as the other novels, but I'm looking forward for the next story.
