Publisher's Summary

Irrepressible. Different. Tenacious. Meet Lucy James, PI in training. Lucy can't seem to finish college and seems stuck in her movie theater job. But she's always been good at figuring out puzzles and a big one drops right in her lap in the shape of an umbrella left behind one rainy night. It turns out something's very wrong at the local art museum and with her best friend, Cindy, and trusty dog, Baskerville, she attempts to find out what. With a little help from her mentor, Sherlock Holmes, Lucy weaves her way through a complicated maze of danger with the occasional spider stepping in to ratchet up the stakes. She meets handsome professor, Eric, along the way and falls for him knowing full well he could be the culprit in the web she's entangled in. Nancy Drew has nothing on this girl, but will her meddling cause trouble to come crashing down on them all?

Cute

Different and cute. Lucy caught up in her movie theatre job. Sees and umbrella that was left. With Cindy and dog Bakersfield, they explore. Which led to meeting the professor Eric.
Like the play on the words in reference to Sherlock. Cute mystery and enjoyable audio. Given for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

A New Sherlock?

This was my first experience with S J Slagle's work and it was fun. Lucy James is a girl that enjoys figuring out puzzles and she is good at it. When an umbrella is left in the theater where Lucy works, she is taxed with the job of trying to find out to whom the umbrella belongs. Lucy feels a kinship with the fictional character of Sherlock who was invented by Arthur Conan Doyle and I enjoyed the way the author incorporated some of the phrases and methodology that perpetrated the original Sherlock stories. I recommend this book to others who enjoy mysteries with convoluted plots and some flashes of humor. Darlene Allen's narration is great and her voice is expressive. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

Plot cute, not suspenseful

The plot was very cute. The characters were too silly for me and the narrator couldn’t really change voices for characters. She had a much older voice for the young characters. I listen to many mysteries. If “cute” and light is your book than try this one.

Solving puzzles is what I do

I enjoyed this book, this is the first book by this author I have read or listened too but it won't be the last as I have already downloaded the next book. It is nice easy listen with plenty of character and a great cast. The Sherlock theme that runs throughout the story is nicely done and doesn't over power or take over the story, so even if you aren't a fan of Holmes you can still enjoy it. The mystery was interesting and gave you plenty of clues for you to work out who is behind it all. I loved the characters and the very different job if not career for the many character to have. I found Lucy and her sidekick Cindy them to be humours at times but still very capable of solving the crime. Off to start the next book.
Lucy can't decide what she wants to do for a living, so finds herself changing majors at a drop of a hat and working as an assistant manager at a movie theater. There she has gained a reputation of being able to solve mysteries, so when somebody leaves behind an unusual umbrella she is given the job of returning it to it owner. The returning is easy, with a bit sticker saying it is from the local museum but it is what she finds at the museum that is puzzling. A staff member hires her to find out what is going on with the new exhibit. The owner of the collection only wants his security guards used but they seem inept eating on the job or not turning up and some thing isn't right. Then a colleague from the theatre is attacked after seeing the exhibits, a man who lives near the back entrance to the museum dies from an apparent heart attack. Lucy thinks they might just be connected. To solve this case she will have to channel her favourite fictional detective to get to the bottom of what is really going on in the museum and why someone broke into her apartment.
I liked the narrator and thought she really helped to bring both the story and the characters alive.
