    " Although the 'case of the left-handed lady' mystery is fairly self-contained, this story really builds on the events of the first Enola Holmes mystery, The Case of the Missing Marquess An Enola Holmes Mystery. Enola is living in London, using a variety of disguises to avoid her brother, Sherlock, and using her ciphers and codes to try to locate her still-missing mother. Having had a rather unconventional childhood, Enola is both of her time - the late 1800s - and an outsider. There's plenty here to interest young mystery fans, especially those who aren't looking for anything too scary (there's some violence but no murders). The story paints a vivid picture of Victorian London, from the poorest on the streets to the upper classes, and the reader gets the same clues as Enola, making it easy to follow along with solving the mystery. For readers who like deciphering codes, the story has plenty (and for those of us who don't, the answers are always given so we don't feel stupid). It's Enola who makes the story, though - she's entertaining and smart, but still very much a young girl trying to figure things out. She reminds me a bit of a young Amelia Peabody, especially with the dagger hidden in her (loose) corset. Definitely recommended, probably 5th grade and up. "

    " I enjoyed this book, which is the second in the series. Having read books two and three, I'm hoping to find book 1 at my library, and then go from there. "

    " This was a fun one to listen to in the car. Sometimes the mystery was a bit predictable, but overall I liked it. "

    " (3.5 stars) This is the second book in the Enola Holmes series. Enola has managed to establish herself in London, using the offices vacated by a fraud in her last case. She is presenting herself as the secretary to a Perditorian, who of course, does not really exist. Enola is surprised to find Dr. Watson on her doorstep, asking for help, in of all things, finding Enola Holmes, as he is worried about how her missing state is affecting Sherlock Holmes. While Enola finagles this awkward situation, she finds out about an intriguing case that Holmes has turned down regarding a missing young lady. She is quite concerned about her brother, and sends an encrypted message to her mother. In the meantime, she escapes a nasty attack while roaming the streets of London as a silent sister who helps the needy. As she manages to get the case of the young woman by appealing to the mother disguised as the wife of the Peditorian, she also must dodge Holmes, still wary of his intentions to send her away. While a little uneven at times, it was good to see the relationship, although at a distance start to develop between Enola and Sherlock. I am looking forward to reading the further adventures of Enola. "
