    I didn’t expect much of this set of short stories; I got them in my kindle because I saw a short tale dealing with Irene Adler. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to find out a lot of healthy good humor and fine interventions from our favorite sleuth though the stories are told from the point of view of the “second Mrs. Watson” of the title: a fabulously well written character. And the tale about Irene Adler did not disappoint me at all.Strongly recommended for the (not to serious) Holmes fa [...]

    What is a woman to do when all she hears each day is a constant stream of praise for that great detective and thorn in her side, Sherlock Holmes? A staid, respectable wife would throw her hands up in despair and meekly accept her fate as a veritable widow to the great man's claim on her husband's life. Luckily for the reader, Amelia Watson, the second wife of Dr. John Watson, isn't a proper, retiring wife! Frustrated by the absence of her husband in her life, all due to his apparent greater loya [...]

    The Adventures of the Second Mrs. Watson by Michael MalloryThe first thing that I must point out is that this book is most definitely non-canonical.

This would make Mary Morstan Watson’s second wife, not the first. F [...]

    I read the first two stories and a portion of the third as a free sample, and immediately was hooked and had to buy the book. Although this is a set of short stories, they do have an internal order. Amelia Watson (nee Pettigrew) is the second wife of Dr. John Watson, the friend and chronicler of Sherlock Holmes. She gets frustrated at her husband's willingness to drop everything when Holmes calls him to assist on a case, but becomes more accepting after meeting Holmes in the first story. Amelia [...]

    This was an interesting collection of short stories featuring the second Mrs. Watson (nee Amelia Pettigrew) as the heroine/narrator. At times pastiche, at times "alternative view"of interest to Sherlock Holmes' fans, especially those that bemoaned the lack of strong feminine characters, after Irene Adler (of course).
