The Case for Jamie takes place a year after the last book, in which Jamie and Charlotte haven’t seen nor heard from each other in that time. Jamie finally felt that it was best to move on from Charlotte Holmes, and Charlotte felt that she needed to hunt for Lucien Moriarty on her own. And now that the two are separated, we were introduced to more of Charlotte’s point-of-view in alternating chapters with Jamie’s, which was a nice change of pace.
I really felt bad for Jamie throughout this book. He began to feel bad about himself and kind of just wanted some of that normalcy he had before meeting Charlotte, but also missed her incredibly. Right now I can really relate to that with where I am in my life switching jobs – I miss the normal way of my life for the past four years, but also think I might like my new setting. It’s hard; change is hard. Though I am happy that Jamie and Charlotte are eventually reunited and take care of things together once again.
There were some “I should’ve seen that coming” moments in the book, and I loved that I missed them because it just made my jaw drop. Though I feel like there wasn’t too much of a plot in this one, now that I’m looking back on it. It was more like the after effects of the past two books and honestly what Lucien pulls in this book is like… why???
Regardless, this book is another good one that I’d recommend, and the last four pages of the book between Jamie and Charlotte is so friggin’ adorable!
