    " I love how Enola speaks the language of flowers and how she solves mysteries while defying her brothers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 2/17/2014

    " Our library finally got this book, and I read it yesterday. I enjoyed it just as much as the others. It's clean, it's a good mystery, it's educational, and the writing style is a lot of fun. I like these books by Nancy Springer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ada | 2/9/2014

    " Another great possibility for my page turners book club. This one introduces the spunky much younger sister of Sherlock Holmes. She sets out on her own quest to find her missing mother, ends up finding another missing person and becomes a missing person herself! I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I am curious how my young patrons will like it. I will recommend it to those who like mysteries and those who like historical fiction as it has lots of references to customs and clothing of the British 19th century. I am looking forward to reading more in this series and will likely use one of these titles for our spring book club selections. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Eboch | 2/5/2014

    " A kids' mystery series featuring Sherlock Holmes little sister. It had a good dramatic mystery and interesting characters. The heroine has excellent reasons for being a girl ahead of her time. An ongoing mystery about her mother's disappearance draws the reader nicely to the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mad_Maudie | 2/4/2014

    " A very strong female protagonist, Enola Holmes is a character I should like to know better, so I plan to continue with the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Esther Smith | 1/28/2014

    " I loved this series. I wished the books were a little longer, but they were well written and very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 1/19/2014

    " I've been meaning to read this for so long, and when I finally got around to it, I wasn't disappointed. I came to appreciate Enola more and more as the story went on. Her brothers' appearance is just right; they too-quickly dismiss her as a child and female, just as their original fictional characters would likely have done! It's perfectly irritating. When the action gets going, the few weaknesses in the writing are more dramatic - hasty plot development & random coincidence strain credulity, and shockingly undiscovered abilities appear spontaneously as needed. Nevertheless, I can easily imagine many 8- to 12-year-old girls who would be thrilled to read this. Readalike to the Lady Grace Cavendish series (Assassin by Patricia Finney is #1). "

    " It was not exitting to me.Also it was not emussing to ehter "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gloria | 12/29/2013

    " From looking at the cover, I thought this book would be very different. The book is more serious then I was expecting and the protagonist is much older. Once I got over my assumptions, I liked the book and the reader, for the audio, was fantastic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beckett | 12/24/2013

    " I must have enjoyed it somewhat...unless I didn't. I read it in Februsary and honest to buttons, can't remember a thing. No goooood. Even after reading the summary, I remember bits, but really, didn't stick. Must not have been overly impressed, though, who knows. Old age is a kicker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 12/24/2013

    " This book was such a fun read. It is about Sherlock Holme's little sister, Enola. It goes through her journey becoming a detective and finding herself. It had a nice innocence to it. Definitely recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty | 12/15/2013

    " Very cute. Nice idea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 T. M. | 10/26/2013

    " Cute, short mystery story. Aimed at younger children, but still enjoyable for older mystery fans. Set in Victorian London and feature the infamous Sherlock Homles as one of Enola's ("Alone" spelled bakcwards) two older brothers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherylann | 9/28/2013

    " For those of us who have been in love with Sherlock forever, here is a chance to vicariously be his indomitable little sister. Brava for the whole series - I only wish Ms. Springer would bring Enola back from her own Victoria Falls. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 8/6/2013

    " Nice twist - interesting book. I enjoy books that I keep going back to after I've read them - and this was one of those. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dotty | 7/22/2013

    " Sister of Sherlock Holmes; aging mother disappears and leaves ciphers as clues. Sherlock and brother come to take charge and want to send Enola off to boarding school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 11/24/2012

    " I love the idea of Sherlock Holmes having a younger sister who is smart and also loves to solve mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 8/9/2012

    " I felt the end was a bit rushed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 6/5/2012

    " nice narrator, good story. it sounds like the beginning of a series of victorian era adventures for a young female sleuth. nice way of fitting in the historical info on women's clothing and social standing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Danica Midlil | 5/23/2012

    " Unfortunately, this was sooo slow that I just quit. I was really hoping to like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 4/25/2012

    " Fun story about the spunky young sister of Sherlock Holmes who also has great talents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 4/11/2012

    " I've been listening to this series on audio book and I really think the narrator does a great job. This book is adventerous and a little Dickenese. She talks a lot about the poor in London and the condition they live in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trish | 4/10/2012

    " I was sucked In fast... But it leaves you wondering. To start book two now... Not sure if it is a continuation or a new story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaylie | 2/2/2012

    " This is a truly amazing book that only a genius such as Nancy Springer could come up with. It's a story that any Sherlock Holmes fan would enjoy, I believe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sabrina *The REAL Princess* | 10/20/2011

    " Sherlock, meet your match. The girls are in town! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rabia | 4/20/2011

    " it was really boring i read it as a book club. It would have been more interesting if she actually did find her mother and find the reason why she left. Or if The girl would have fallen in love or something But No it was boring :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 3/30/2011

    " I enjoyed the British flavor of the book, and also the clever puzzles and twists. The plot relied a lot on coincidence, however, which was a bother, but I wouldn't be opposed to reading more of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pattyb | 3/12/2011

    " Although the protaganist is 12, I don't think this book will appeal to girls that age, especially with the juvenile cover. The heroine is the sister of Sherlock Holmes, and she does her own bit of detective work in the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corinneecomly | 3/4/2011

    " Enola Holmes is the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes. Set in Victorian England, this tale incorporates women's fight for equality as well as mystery, the misery of London slums, blood-thirsty villians and ciphers. A lot of fun as well as educational. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/21/2011

    " This was totally cute! I loved the character of her mom, even though you don't really meet her, and it does showcase Sherlock's greatest hurdle--intelligent women. I loved it. Not too girl-powery too~! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte | 2/6/2011

    " I loved this book and frankly the whole series. It is a very innovative retelling of the Sherlock Holmes oeuvre using the idea that Sherlock has a younger and just as smart sister. Hold on as these slim volumes open up Victorian England and a powerful feminist heroine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/29/2011

    " I don't think I'll read the rest of the series. It held my interest (while I was captive on a plane) though:). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 1/23/2011

    " I think this book falls in the category of "Juvenile Fiction." I wanted to try a "cozy mystery" written for the younger set and this definitely fit this category. I am going to try some of the other books in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trish | 1/23/2011

    " I was sucked In fast... But it leaves you wondering. To start book two now... Not sure if it is a continuation or a new story. "
