Huck and Win are both very appealing characters. The two share a lot of awkward moments at first, and it's interesting to see Huck's insecurity. The two start a relationship and learn each other's preferences and habits, and slowly get closer. This reminded me a bit of Barakiva's One Man Guy, and is a great addition to a slowly growing genre of romances with LGBTQIA+ characters. I did appreciate that the characters were in high school, but there wasn't a lot of hard partying of other details that would be challenging for middle school students. The best part of this was that this wasn't a coming out story; the romance was just woven into the plot.
The Sherlock Holmes stories are woven into the plot nicely, and there's the touch of Ms. Gregoire's magic that hovers over all of the activities. This series can be read independently, but I like the idea of reads who start with this book being intrigued and going back to pick up the others.
