Waiting on Wednesday: Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty

I practically fainted when I heard about this book. I’m a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes, so I was beyond excited to hear about a YA novel coming to a bookshelf near you! Have you heard of an upcoming YA book called Lock & Mori?

Well. Get ready.

Check out Lock & Mori

Lock & Mori

In modern-day London, two brilliant high school students, one Sherlock Holmes and a Miss James “Mori” Moriarty, meet. A murder will bring them together. The truth very well might drive them apart.

Before they were mortal enemies, they were much more.

FACT: Someone has been murdered in London’s Regent’s Park. The police have no leads.

FACT: Miss James “Mori”Moriarty and Sherlock “Lock” Holmes should be hitting the books on a school night. Instead, they are out crashing a crime scene.

FACT: Lock has challenged Mori to solve the case before he does. Challenge accepted.

FACT: Despite agreeing to Lock’s one rule–they must share every clue with each other–Mori is keeping secrets.

OBSERVATION: Sometimes you can’t trust the people closest to you with matters of the heart. And after this case, Mori may never trust Lock again.



I haven’t read anything from Heather W. Petty  before but you bet your buns I will be now. I can’t wait to check this one out.  Out 9/15/15!

What do you think? Will you be reading this book?
