Enola¿s most dangerous case yet! Enola is looking for a missing noblewoman and at the same time her brothers are looking for her. Sherlock has received a letter from their mother that only Enola can open. Enola must face up to her fears of Sherlock and Mycroft as well as her uncertainty about her mother. The siblings must work together to bring the mysteries of both missing ladies to a close. This is Enola Holmes at her best!

After fourteen-year-old Enola Holmes seeks the missing Duquessa Del Campo in the seedy underbelly of nineteenth-century London, she finally reaches an understanding with her brothers Sherlock and Mycroft.

The Enola Holmes Series is very well writen, with wonderful surprises on each and every page. The ending, however, was a bit...dry, I guess. It leaves the reader wishing for a bit more. I do not like how some people say this book is for adults only. I am only in middle school, and I understood it just fine. Nancy Springer depicted London in the 1880s very well, and I liked the way the characters were developed throughout the series. It was very entertaining, and all together quite delightful. This is defintely a book that won't get old, you will want to read this series again and again. Some of the concepts are not for younger readers, therefore I would say this is appropriate for ages 13 and up. Springer did a great job on this series, and I can't wait to see what she will write next.

This entire series is delightful - even for adults. Enola is an incredibly resourceful and independent heroine while reminding us how important family really is. The mysteries are simple but interesting and this one wraps everything up. The depiction of Victorian London is excellent as well. I enjoyed this series very much and recommend it for young and older adults.

Am I hearing this right? This is the last Enola Holmes?!? I really like this series, even though I'm a teen. I like Sherlock, but I can never really relate to him. I somewhat relate to Enola, though. Not in parent abandonment, but in being alone in the world... Springer hit home when writing about it. If you like a short and cute read, I would really reccomend this series! I'm going to hate this series being over... it's that good!!!

The only thing I really have a problem with is the ending, but other than that, I find myself looking "enola holmes" in the search bar, hoping for more, but....* sigh * Every time I'm disappointed. u.u Other than that, it was a thoroughly enjoyable book because it was full of suspense and action - more than you'd think to find in a book like this. Overall, this series has become one of my favorite series. You don't have to read the middle four books in any order, but I would recommend reading the first and last books first and last, because you would miss alot of information.

(Sorry for not being here. I was disgustingly sick.) Arrianna walks in and starts to write a letter. "So I have recieved your question," it reads, "and the first thing you need to know is that you are not a stalker! I know that anytime I like a guy I do the same thing. Second thing is, ask him if he feels the same way. I know it sounds easy when written out, but if you just ask 'Hey (insert boys name here), do you still feel the same as you did last year?', I think you will get an answer. Who knows? Maybe it is one you like! Oh and, if you do not want to do that, then drop hints. Just make sure they are not too hidden because some guys have a hard time understanding hints! Have a wonderful day, Arrianna."
