Today it is my pleasure to spotlight A Study in Silks by Emma Jane Holloway


A STUDY IN SILKS, is the first book in Emma Jane Holloway’s new fantasy/paranormal romance trilogy. 

The book centers around Evelina Cooper, Sherlock Holmes’ niece, as she faces murder, missing automations, a sorcerer, and much more in what should have been her enjoyable first season in London Society.

ASISEvelina Cooper, the niece of the great Sherlock Holmes, is poised to enjoy her first Season in London Society. But there’s a murderer to deal with—not to mention missing automatons, a sorcerer, and a talking mouse.

In a Victorian era ruled by a council of ruthless steam barons, mechanical power is the real monarch and sorcery the demon enemy of the Empire. Nevertheless, the most coveted weapon is magic that can run machines—something Evelina has secretly mastered. But rather than making her fortune, her special talents could mean death or an eternity as a guest of Her Majesty’s secret laboratories. What’s a polite young lady to do but mind her manners and pray she’s never found out?

But then there’s that murder. As Sherlock Holmes’s niece, Evelina should be able to find the answers, but she has a lot to learn. And the first decision she has to make is whether to trust the handsome, clever rake who makes her breath come faster, or the dashing trick rider who would dare anything for her if she would only just ask.

    Great excerpt. I’ve always been a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes so the spin of his niece grabs my attention immediately. I love that its a female Holmes and that it’s steampunk. Definitely adding to my TBR.

    The fact that Evelina Cooper is the niece of Sherlock Holmes has me sitting up & paying full attention. Love that idea.

  5. Rachel Brimble

    This sounds fantastic! As soon as I saw Sherlock Holmes niece and a mystery, I was hooked! Plus, this will be my very first steampunk after years of people telling me I’ll love it 🙂

    Who doesn’t love Sherlock Holmes? You really grabbed me with that! The idea of his niece being introduced to society sounds like fun and the idea of her understanding this mechanical mystery is very intriguing. Can’t wait to read this.
