    Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche by Nancy Springer brings together Sherlock Holmes and his much younger sister Enola in a teen / young adult historical mystery set in London and Surrey in 1889. There are several previous books in this series, but this one worked well as a standalone. Mystery, suspense, and humor are blended together in an appealing new case for Enola.

    At fifteen, Enola is living on her own at the Professional Women’s Club and has a history of sleuthing. While she is visiti

    I loved this book! Huge thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for an ARC of this latest (#7) in the Enola Holmes series, by Nancy Springer. I am late to the party since this is the first book it the series that I’ve read, but it works as a stand-alone. Book #6 of the series was published over a decade ago! This new book in the series follows the successful screening of the Enola Holmes Netflix film of 2020. (I must live in a cave with no electricity or internet, otherwise I would not have t ...more

    I am excited to present my first guest review, from my wonderful wife, Kate! Thanks, babe, for your review of this book, the seventh in Nancy Springer's Enola Holmes' series.

    When I heard there was going to be another book in the Enola Holmes series, I jumped at the chance and promised my book-loving wife that I would write a guest review. So, here it is! Please accept my apologies ahead of time for the fact that I cannot (and would never dare try to) match the quality and skill that my wife dem

    I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Ever since I watched Enola on Netflix, I was very happy to dive into Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche. There was just something about Enola that left me in awe. Yes, I got some parts of Sherlock in her but she had her own kind of sass to things. She definitely amused me. So, it's safe to say that I was very happy when I got approved to dive into this book.

    Long story short, I loved it. I liked getting to see her and Sherl

    It sure feels like I’m living under a rock when I didn’t even know about the existence of Enola Holmes and the past 6 cases she solved. Nor was I aware of the movie released last year that led to another book in the series after more than 10 years.
    But I’m glad to have redeemed my mistake. All the previous books are in my TBR now. I may watch the movie, though I’ll read the book first.
    Thankfully, this book starts with a brief recap covering the series. It’s narrated by none other than

    Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche
    by Nancy Springer
    I want to thank the publisher and NetGalley for letting me read this fun and exciting book!

    I find Enola just as exciting, if not more, than Holmes! She is a bit brash, always daring, and will take on just about anything! Her and Holmes make a great team! In this book Holmes is in a terrible funk and Watson is worried about him. Holmes won't eat, shave, or get out of bed. Watson wants Enola to come cheer him up.

    As I kid, I loved this series.

    It was always a little cutesy and awkwardly self-aware, but I sure did not care. I enjoyed the way Enola approaches cases from a totally different avenue than Sherlock, blowing his mind every time, and the subversion of the "I run away dressed as a boy" trope. I was interested in the fiddly details of the mysteries. I was intensely invested in whatever resolution she might or might not achieve in her family relationships.

    This book is so much fun! Enola Holmes could be this generations Nancy Drew. She is so smart, so fun, very witty and a force to be reckoned with! This is the 7th book in the series, but like the others, could be read alone. For this installment she is working with her brother into looking into the disappearance of a young wife of a nobleman. Very quickly she learns that this is the second wife that this man has had "die" under mysterious circumstances. This is a great book for anyone that loves ...more

    Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche is a quick and fun read that I read in a day! It mainly tells the journey of Enola, the adventurous and brave younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, who decides to find clues behind her mother's disappearance. I liked the movie very much, but less this book. Lots of mystery and twists and turns! Being a teenage girl, Enola soon finds it difficult to find her mother without the help of her two brothers who are busy on their own and her to wor

    In a doldrum, the famous Sherlock Holmes will not see a woman--so desperately in need of assistance that Mrs. Hudson fears for her health if she's turned away--and his much younger sister, Enola determines to take the case. He has not seen much of his lanky sister in over 10 years, and he is only starting to realize that along with some family resemblance, Enola inherited a similar strength of will, almost manic amount of energy once hired, and an astonishing level of cleverness. She can also ap ...more

    Enola Holmes is the younger sister of famed detectives Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes. She shares her brothers’ talent for solving crimes but is also more impetuous than her brothers. “Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche” is the seventh in a series of books about Enola’s crime-solving adventures. The series has been given a new lease on life by the Netflix film “Enola Holmes” and this is a very good thing.

The story is a well-laid-out mystery with plenty of fast-paced action to move the plot along. It was easy to become invested in solving the case. This Historical romp has an easily recognizable world with both atmospheres and personal interactions being appropriate for the time period.

    The latest Enola Holmes mystery is a fun read, even without the tension of Enola hiding from her brothers. What made the first books really interesting was Enola's attempts to evade her brothers while solving the crime under their noses, but this story is still enjoyable.

However, it didn't matter, because the way Springer has the novel start gets you up to speed on what you need to know and establishes any characters you may not be familiar with. In this story, Enola and her recently-unestranged brother, Sherlock, work together to help a lady who learned from an odd letter from her brother-in-law that her sister has died.
