I wasn't sure that I was going to like this book but it ended up being pretty cute with a nice cliff-hanger.
Enola Holmes is the much younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft. She hasn't seen them in over ten years, assuming it is because her birth was an embarrassment to the family (her mother was fifty at the time). But when her mother disappears, she has to call in the famous pair to help out. She learns that there is some sort of feud between the three of them. Sherlock is called away on a case and Mycroft immediately makes it clear that Enola is off to boarding school where they weill (gasp) make her wear a corset.
So she does the sensible thing. She takes the money her mother has hidden for her and runs off to London. On the way, she learns about the disappearance of the local duke's son. She figures out where he is but there is a bad guy who figures out first. When Enola is kidnapped so theat the bad dudes can find the duke's son and collect a ransom, she has to exercise her family's intelligence to save both him and herself.
