I absolutely enjoyed this book from beginning to end! It's fun to see Enola outsmart her brothers, especially Sherlock. I love the witty writing and the historical details of the time period. I also love that Enola knows things her brothers do not because she is a girl/woman. It's a great series for junior high girls, although I have been pleasantly surprised to find I love them as much as my teen daughter does. I really enjoy the interaction Enola has with Sherlock. The characters are fun. Great books! My only problem is I want even more!

I really have been enjoying this mystery series involving the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes. In this book, the wonderful Dr. Watson has gone missing and Enola is on the case, solving it with ease before her dear brother Sherlock. Always an interesting and eventful read.

When Enola's older brother's best friend disappears, Enola is determined to locate him even though the search may compromise her secret identity. The search for Dr. Watson leads our intrepid detective into London's steamy underside and finds her caught in a deranged plot twenty years in the making. The third in Nancy Springer's Enola Holmes mystery series, The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets includes all the mainstays of Enola's adventures: secret codes, cunning disguises, and a midnight dash across the rooftops. She worries about her absent mother and spars with her overbearing brothers Sherlock and Mycroft while maintaining her cover as Ivy Meshle, secretary to the fictitious Scientific Perditorian. The mystery in this particular installment seems a little forced and improbable, but will prove interesting to fans of the characters. Recommended for Middle School audiences.

Excellent mystery. Enola, our plucky heroine, takes the case when Dr. Watson goes missing while still staying hidden from her brothers.
