The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets

Author: Nancy Springer
Genre: Mystery, adventure
Series: An Enola Holmes Mystery
Number in series: 3rd
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9
Type: Fiction
Number of pages: 170
Time period: 1800’s
My overall opinion: I am so much enjoying this series! Nancy Springer I must say that I consider quite brilliant to come up with a little sister for Sherlock Holmes, who solves mysteries in some truly innovative ways! Enola is a delightful heroine, and I am really liking Sherlock himself… J Some of the premise of the series is that Enola has run away from home and is hiding out in London, trying not to be found by her brothers Mycroft and Sherlock. She comes up with dozens of disguises, does her best not to run into her brothers, and also finds missing persons – in this book, she’s looking for Dr. Watson…yup, Sherlock’s sidekick. Really fun! Highly recommend this series.

After seeing your review of the first book, I got these for my thirteen {almost fourteen} year old sister. She just read all six of them in a few day, and enjoyed them tremendously! :) Thanks for the recommendations!
