This month we had more than a lot of fun being inspired by the legendary Sherlock Holmes
... and playing the role of an anglophile (a person who is fond of or greatly admires England or Britain).
Our book selection for our British inspired Coffee and a Classic book box is Art in the Blood: A Sherlock Holmes Adventure by Bonnie MacBird, and while the book itself is yet to be a technical classic, the protagonist most definitely is.
"This latest adventure, in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, sends the iconic duo from London to Paris and the icy wilds of Lancashire in a case which tests Watson's friendship and the fragility and gifts of Sherlock Holmes' own artistic nature to the limits."
We also discovered a great bibliophile (a person who collects or has a great love of books) company! Frostbeard Studio is the amazing creator of book candles.
While they have so many amazing book lovers scents I am currently - and thoroughly enjoying - trying out myself, their 'British' Sample Pack of Book Lovers Soy Candles was absolutely perfect for our British inspired book box.
Scents of "Sherlock's Study", "Wibbly Wobbly Wimey", "Through the Wardrobe" and "Hatter's Tea Party" are sure to help you transition into detective mode.
Additional items included in this book box to aid you on your Sherlock adventure
- English Breakfast / Earl Grey Tea to sip on
- A hand-painted Sherlock Holmes mug to sip out of
- Chocolate wafers and english candies to snack on
