Something Blue

(The second book in the Sherlock & Jack series)
A novel by

'I should have been the happiest woman in the world... '

When Jacky Day accepts Tom Huggins's proposal of marriage, there is just one problem. Abandoned as a baby and raised in the workhouse, she has no family to call her own. Now, with her wedding weeks away, she enlists the help of Sherlock Holmes to try and find them.

However, the great detective has his own worries. His old enemy, Professor Moriarty, grows ever more daring, and his attempts to kill Holmes more blatant. Add Holmes's imminent departure for the Continent, and finding Jacky's family becomes a race against time.

Jacky is ready to embrace her future - but to do so she must confront her fear of returning to the workhouse she grew up in, and face the truth of her buried past...

Something Blue is the second novella in the Sherlock & Jack series, set in 1890s London.
