About four months ago, Rachel Watts and her family moved from their foreclosed country farm to the big city, and Rachel has been struggling not to feel stifled. The bright spot in her life is her friends: Mai and her boyfriend Gus, and especially James Mycroft, her neighbor. Mycroft is a genius, albeit a socially awkward one, and Rachel has developed an easy friendship with him that includes doing homework together and working on various research projects. And now… amateur detective work? When a homeless man, a friend of Mycroft’s, dies mysteriously, the pair believe it was more than a random act. As they dig up clues and follow their leads, they slowly get closer to the truth. But the truth can be dangerous…
Ellie Marney will have readers thoroughly hooked with Every Breath. Despite starting relatively slowly, this book is nearly impossible to put down once the plot thickens and Mycroft and Watts get on the case. Marney does an excellent job putting her own shine to the classic Sherlock Holmes story, and her characters are unique and engaging, with their own private histories and their own perspectives of the mystery they face. Looking forward to the upcoming sequel!
