Everything was fine until Sherlock showed up for tea.
Brilliant, wise-cracking Penelope Wilde has worked hard to be normal. With an IQ off the charts, her mother forces her to dampen her genius throughout school to avoid unwanted scrutiny. In time it becomes a normal way of life until a man shows up in her living room proclaiming himself to not only be her father, but also the fictional, ingenious character of Sherlock Holmes. Oh and one more thing, he claims to be a time traveler.
Someone has some explaining to do.
Soon Penelope is plunged into her father’s bizarre yet brilliant world where she’s forced to give up her way of life and embrace the danger and intrigue that are her birthright in order to claim her father’s empire as her own. However, you can’t just thrust a girl into high stakes time travel. First, she has to be trained. With the enigmatic John Watson in the picture, Penelope is confused, bruised, enlightened, and pushed to her limit as she tries to rectify the world she once knew with the one she now belongs to.
But Daddy Dearest has another bomb to drop. Due to an error of epic magnitude with an experimental serum, Watson, and everyone in her genetic line is cursed with immortality. And someone wants that serum. Bad.
Penelope has her hands full and, even with immortality on her side, time is running out.
As much as she’d like to forget all about Aaron and his disappearing act with the immortality serum (and most of Penelope’s blood), it’s beginning to pop up all over the place. Except there’s something not quite right with the formulation, and the serum Sherlock tried so hard to keep secret is now killing people and scattering their bodies across time.
Still untrained and new to the ways of time travel, Penelope is forced to come to terms with the loss of her old gifts and embrace the new and unexpected ones thrust upon her due to the genetic experimentations her father was forced to perform to save her life. As if that weren’t bad enough, Aaron pops back in with a sheepish apology and a promise he wasn’t the one responsible for releasing the serum.
The testosterone and emotions are running high as Penelope is forced to work with two wildly different, yet oddly appealing men in a race to take down the mad scientist responsible for the killings and retrieve the original serum before even more people die.
Penelope would much rather crack open a novel and take a bubble bath, but when you’re the immortal and time-traveling daughter of Sherlock Holmes, luxury is not something easy to come by.
