About this deal

OK, the pause was actually eleven years, which is brief compared to things that take much longer than eleven years... A young girl who is empowered, capable, and smart...the Enola Holmes book series convey an impactful message that you can do anything if you set your mind to it, and it does so in an exciting and adventurous way."—Millie Bobby Brown Already half a dozen would-be heroes were stampeding towards the door. Yet, if I had walked in here under my own power, any request for help would have been met with deepest suspicion. Such is life: odd. Reminders:

When I hurried out of the front door of the Professional Women’s Club, the good doctor was waiting with a hansom cab, into which he helped me with some conventional words of greeting before seating himself at my side and bidding the cabbie to convey us to Baker Street.

It is every bit as fun as the first six Enola Holmes mysteries. There are currently (24-Oct-2023) two more Enola Holmes novels, published in 2022 and 2023, and I will certainly read them. In 2020 Netflix released an Enola Holmes movie (which I have seen) and in 2022 a second (which I have not). In 2021 Springer rebooted the book series with this novel. I am of course delighted at the resumption of the series, but was also apprehensive that it might have been changed to take after the movie, which is quite different from the books. I take great pride in my work as a typist,” she replied, and I thought: Of course! Her card! As I nodded, she attempted a smile, continuing, “As you can tell by my surname, my forebears were humble glove makers, and my family’s money earned in trade, but I share with my sister—” Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.

Although there is a much humor in this novel there are disturbing descriptions of the conditions in insane asylums of the period – nothing we haven’t read before or seen in numerous other period pieces, but disturbing never-the-less.El mensaje del conde es sospechosamente vago y el certificado de defunción, más dudoso todavía. Solo hay una vía de investigaciones posible: infiltrarse en los dominios del conde. O, al menos, así lo decide Enola, pese a las protestas de su hermano. Pronto descubre que Felicity no es la única de las esposas del conde que ha fallecido súbitamente. El destino de la desaparecida va unido al de un misterioso carruaje negro que llegó a la mansión en mitad de la noche.

Everyone believes that Salil Singh killed his girlfriend, Andrea Bell, five years ago—except Pippa Fitz-Amobi. Her voice choked to a halt as he opened his eyes and glared at her. That single dagger-sharp look answered her as clearly as words. 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.

NANCY SPRINGER is the author of the nationally bestselling Enola Holmes novels, including The Case of the Missing Marquess, which was made into the hit Netflix movie, Enola Holmes. She is the author of more than 50 other books for children and adults. She has won many awards, including two Edgar Awards, and has been published in more than thirty countries. She lives in Florida. She was, however, in a widow’s weeds, noticeable. I traced her to London, scarcely able to believe she had the temerity to venture there—and at Scotland Yard I encountered an aristocratic lad who had been rescued from kidnappers by a girl in a widow’s guise! The boy informed me, however, that she was now dressed as a spinster with a pince-nez. I had so much fun reading this book! I adore Enola Holmes and read the first books of this series a long time ago and then watched the movie when it came out so I was thrilled to be sent an ARC of this new one! I’m awfully sorry to be the sender of bad tidings. Some news can only be stated starkly if at all, so I will be blunt: Flossie has passed away due to a sudden and virulent illness. Fear of the disease caused her mortal remains to be cremated rather than prepared for burial. As you are her closest blood relative, I will send her ashes to you in a parcel along with this letter. I am sure you will be deeply grieved as am I, but may memories of your sister comfort you.

The woman states she received a letter saying her sister died suddenly and was cremated. It just seemed suspicious. The husband is a Duke that married below his status. The case is exciting, has suspense, clever, and sprinkled with wit and humor. I, too, was happy for Flossie’s good fortune, although I saw her seldom and I have missed her dreadfully in the two years since she married. I have been even lonelier since our parents passed on, but I contented myself with the thought that all was well for Flossie—or at least so I thought, until yesterday.” Nancy Springer ist sich ihrem Stil treu geblieben und ich hab mit Begeisterung verfolgt, wie die forsche und erwachsen werdende Enola in ihrer forschen Art einen neuen Fall annimmt. Book Genre: Adventure, Childrens, Fiction, Historical, Historical Fiction, Historical Mystery, Middle Grade, Mystery, Mystery Thriller, Thriller, Young Adult Still, the characters hold true, and the mystery was fun to read, but not overly complicated. I think that readers within the age range will enjoy this.

Enola shows herself to be an intelligent, rational, resourceful, and brave protagonist. Readers will look forward to hearing this heroine’s unique voice again.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review The next day, from shouted conversation through an ear trumpet, I pieced together that the pitiful, deaf, and ancient Mrs. Tupper had been Enola’s landlady, and with some mental excitement I deduced that Enola might visit her at the Nightingale residence. Thereafter I lurked in wait for her, along with a companion named Reginald. Dozens of people entered the Nightingale home daily, and on the lookout for my plain-faced sister, I paid no attention whatsoever to quite a lovely lady in an elaborate cerulean gown of three fabrics—but Reginald, my sister’s longtime pet collie, whined and pulled at the leash! I let him go bounding to her, and could scarcely believe it when the lady greeted the dog with laughter and tears, most unceremoniously sitting on the ground to hug him! When she saw me looking down at her, she smiled up into my face and willingly took my hand to arise. She sensed, I think, that I no longer looked down on her in any other sense of the phrase.
