Review

Enola Holmes, the sister to the great detective, Sherlock Holmes: A great premise for a mystery novel. I was glad that I gave the series a second try by reading this second book in the series. This story involved much more “detective worthy” methods than Enloa’s previous story whereas many if not more things came along by accident as was planned. Enola’s many steps to give her more credibility than a normal 14-year old girl in Victorian England succeeds.

I did not find the story to be predictable and it had some interesting hurdles for the protagonist to overcome. Enola is still very lucky in her approaches to sleuthing though.

I look forward to seeing in future installments of the Enola Holmes series whether Enola becomes more like her brother, Sherlock, or just stumbles upon the answer(s), albeit with a lot of effort on her part.
