"Why are you staring at me that way?"

Laura hardly looked up from her dinner to ask thins. She arched one eyebrow over one olive green eye.

"Your hair," lied Reggie, "is in your champagne."
Friday 56:
"Why, yes," she said, and now she looked at Reggie with her pale brow furrowed. "I hope there's no reason to say this," said the woman, "and I would certainly not be the one to snitch to Dorset National -- but I trust you are truly just...tidying up -- and not attempting to contact one of these people directly. That would be --"

"Bloody foolish," said Reggie.

He thanked the woman again.

And then he drove to Heathrow, with the address for the Los Angeles letter writer in his pocket.
This week I am spotlighting The Baker Street Letters by Michael Robertson which has been on my TBR mountain since October of 2016. Here is the description from Amazon:
First in a spectacular new series about two brother lawyers who lease offices on London's Baker Street--and begin receiving mail addressed to Sherlock Holmes

In Los Angeles, a geological surveyor maps out a proposed subway route―and then goes missing. His eight-year-old daughter in her desperation turns to the one person she thinks might help―she writes a letter to Sherlock Holmes.

That letter creates an uproar at 221b Baker Street, which now houses the law offices of attorney and man about town Reggie Heath and his hapless brother Nigel. Instead of filing the letter like he's supposed to, Nigel decides to investigate. Soon he's flying off to L.A., inconsiderately leaving a very dead body on the floor in his office. Big brother Reggie follows Nigel to California, as does Reggie's sometime lover, Laura – a quick-witted stage actress who's captured the hearts of both brothers.

When Nigel is arrested, Reggie must use all his wits to solve a case that Sherlock Holmes would have savored, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fans will adore.
