A mysterious death. A life in the balance. When do the ends justify the means?
  
  John Watson wants nothing more than to head home to 221B and have a hot cuppa, but Sherlock Holmes has other plans. The famous composer, Rebecca Frost, has died. Her elderly butler insists she was murdered. Sherlock takes on the case, only to face the additional complication of Vivian Walker - the unexpected heir to the Frost Estate. 
  
  Someone wants her dead, and it's up to Sherlock and John to protect her, whether the stubborn woman wants their help or not. But more than one danger threatens her life. Solving this mystery and keeping Vivian safe may prove their greatest challenge yet.
  
  Book One of the Hooked on a Feeling series
  
  ***
  
  This novel is AU, as it was written prior to the release of Sherlock Series 3. As a result, there is no Mary, Sherlock's parents are very different, and Moriarty isn't back. Sherlock has returned following The Reichenbach Fall, and he and John have repaired their friendship. There will be no romantic relationship between the two, only brotherly love between the best of friends. There will be bickering though. Loads of it.
  
  There will also be moments of angst, hints of a developing romance (Sherlock/OC), and of course an intriguing mystery. If that's your cuppa tea, then put your feet up and relax. You're in for a treat!
  
  You can expect a new chapter posted every Friday. Happy Reading!
