Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, Thriller


Blurb:


Enola Holmes, Sherlock's much younger, and feistier, sister, returns in an adventure of a confused young Baronet's daughter who is on the run from her father's devious schemes in Nancy Springer's Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade.


Enola Holmes, the much younger sister of Sherlock, is now living independently in London and working as a scientific perditorian (a finder of persons and things). But that is not the normal lot of young women in Victorian England. They are under the near absolute control of their nearest male relative until adulthood. Such is the case of Enola's friend, Lady Cecily Alastair. Twice before Enola has rescued Lady Cecily from unpleasant designs of her caddish father, Sir Eustace Alastair, Baronet. And when Enola is brusquely turned away at the door of the Alastair home it soon becomes apparent that Lady Cecily once again needs her help.

Affecting a bold escape, Enola takes Lady Cecily to her secret office only to be quickly found by the person hired by Lady Cecily's mother to find the missing girl - Sherlock Holmes himself. But the girl has already disappeared again, now loose on her own in the unforgiving city of London.

Even worse, Lady Cecily has a secret that few know. She has dual personalities - one, which is left-handed, is independent and competent; the other, which is right-handed, is meek and mild. Now Enola must find Lady Cecily again - before one of her personalities gets her into more trouble than she can handle and before Sherlock can find her and return her to her father. Once again, for Enola, the game is afoot.

My Review:

Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade was a delightful little read that I enjoyed tremendously. Enola’s best friend, Lady Cecily Alastair has gone missing. Enola goes to visit her friend in her home only to be told that she is not receiving visitors at this time. Well, Enola can only summarize that her friend is in need of being saved from her father once again.

Enola takes Lady Cecily to her home and almost the moment they walk in the door low and behold who just happens to show up at her door but dear old brother Sherlock. Sherlock has been hired by Lady Cecily’s mother to find her. Sherlock searches Enola’s home from top to bottom but Lady Cecily is nowhere to be found. She has disappeared once again. Sending Enola and Sherlock on the search for her once again.

Lady Cecily has dual personalities, one, which is left-handed, is independent and competent; the other, which is right-handed is meek and mild. Enola must find Lady Cecily quickly before one of her personalities gets her into deep trouble.

Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade was fun and delightful to read. Enola is a great person with a great demeanor about her. She is a fun and witty person that will make you smile on occasion. I kept seeing her in my mind the whole time as she was running around following all the clues that were leading her closer and closer to her friend.

I highly recommend reading Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade to anyone looking for a fun and lighthearted read. Grab your copy of Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade today for an adventure of a lifetime.
