Enola (Alone spelled backwards) Holmes has run away from her older brother Sherlock because he has been trying to send her off to turn her into a "proper lady". Unfortunately for Sherlock; Enola is one case he's not having luck solving. Enola, on the other hand is quite adept and solving her own cases. This is the second book in the series, and I find it to be quite charming. Perhaps because it takes place around the time my "new" house was being built (1889-1890). My only concern is that the vocabulary is pretty antiquated, so some kids (or adults) may have some difficulty or need a dictionary.
