Review @iheartreads - A Study In Shifters by Majanka Verstraete (The Adventures of Marisol Holmes #1)

A Study In Shifters
The Adventures of Marisol Holmes #1
by Majanka Verstraete

Goodreads blurb:  Seventeen-year-old Marisol Holmes may be the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes, but it’s hard to live up to the family name when only one mistake can spell your downfall. After trusting the wrong guy in a case gone totally wrong, Marisol convinces the Conclave, an underground organization of detectives solving supernatural cases, to give her a last chance to prove her worth, and maybe even heal her broken heart.

After all, as a half-blood jaguar shifter, Marisol is uniquely qualified to solve this murder—and every scrap of evidence points toward the culprit being a fellow jaguar shifter. But is one of her own people involved, or is this all a ploy to kick Marisol’s mother off the shifter throne?

Then Marisol discovers her best friend, Roan, is missing, and maybe the killer’s next target. The stakes just got higher than political intrigue. Just when things couldn’t get worse, Marisol’s ex-boyfriend-turned-nemesis, Mannix, starts leaving sinister clues for her. Marisol fears this case might be far more personal than she could’ve imagined.

It’s time for Marisol to prove her worth, or her people could fall into chaos while her best friend loses his life.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is very intriguing and what caught my eye!

This is my first time reading this author’s work, and this is book 1 in a new series.  This is a YA book though there are some dark moments of murder.

I found the premise of this series very awesome.  Marisol is a teenage shifter, and she is a relative of Sherlock Holmes.  Just like Sherlock, she solves crimes and has an amazing mind.  I think just being a teenager is tough, and she also has to deal with royal drama because her mom is queen.  And she is only half shifter and treated like it is something bad.  She is amazing in this story.  I couldn’t put the book down.  I loved the mystery and intrigue of her working on solving the crime.

Majanka has created a fantastic story and creative world.  I loved every moment, and I can’t wait to return to this world.

I highly recommend to YA shifter fans who love mystery and crime solving all rolled into one book!  Outstanding and can’t wait for more!

Interested in reading???
