Enola Holmes series:

When I found out the movie was based on a book series, of course I had to read them as soon as possible!

It’s an absolutely delightful series in which Enola Holmes runs away to London in search of her mother, finds her life’s calling as a Scientific Perditorian (finder of lost things/people), criss-crosses the city in a variety of disguises, and always tries to stay one step ahead of Sherlock and Mycroft — which often involves walking right under their noses!

There were, of course, some significant changes made for the movie adaptation: Enola is only 14 in the books, not 16; and Tewkesbury is 12 and definitely not a love interest; a lot of plot points were added to the Missing Marquess storyline for the movie; Enola’s mother plays a much smaller role in the books; and Sherlock’s acceptance of Enola as a skilled detective in her own right is a much more gradual process that spans the whole series.

But the vibes are the same, and so is Enola’s character. I loved the books just as much as I loved the movie and I do hope they continue adapting the series! ( )

Just finished the audiobook, previously read the paperback. For some reason I remembered enjoying the bits involving Enola actually getting along with her brothers, and yet I completely forgot the horrifying part earlier in the story, in which Enola grabbed a cat by its tail and threw it in order to distract Sherlock. And also the weirdly worshipful way that the gypsies viewed Enola's mother. I did still really like the scenes involving Enola, Sherlock, and Mycroft, though, and wish there had been more of them.

Dr. Ragostin is hired to find Lady Blanchefleur, a delicate flower of a young woman who disappeared shortly after being convinced to help an old woman enter the Baker Street Underground and find her train. One of her ladies-in-waiting accompanied her but lost track of her. There has been no ransom note, and no sign of the old woman who lured Lady Blanchefleur down there in the first place.

Of course, it's not Dr. Ragostin doing the investigating, it's his supposed assistant, Enola in her "Ivy Meshle" disguise. And unfortunately for Enola, Dr. Ragostin wasn't the only person hired to find Lady Blanchefleur - Sherlock Holmes was as well. As usual, he wants nothing more than his younger sister's trust and safety, but now he has an additional reason to want to find her: a strange message from their mother.

Considering how good the previous book was, I was really looking forward to this final one. Sadly, I thought it was just so-so. The mystery was weak and relied heavily on an incredibly convenient appearance by a character introduced early on in the series. I was somewhat disappointed, but not really surprised, that poor Enola still didn't get an actual visit from her mother, just another coded message. And while the scenes in which Sherlock, Mycroft, and Enola tried to figure out how their version of a "happy family" might work were very nice, I wish there had been more. My favorite bit, I think, was when Sherlock and Enola waited to see how long it would take Mycroft to recognize her (weirdly, Mycroft not recognizing her didn't bother me nearly as much as Sherlock repeatedly not recognizing her in previous books), although the gathering at the very end was also great.

It's clear that Springer really, really doesn't like corsets, because the whole "tyranny of the corset" thing kept popping up and this final volume pushed it hard. I was okay with parts of it because I could definitely see the health repercussions of the way one character wore hers, but Springer seemed to think that all socially acceptable corset-wearing involved tightlacing, and from my understanding that wasn't the case.

I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about Enola's mother's message. On the one hand, I liked the recognition that women like Eudoria Holmes exist, that having children doesn't automatically make women stereotypically loving and motherly. On the other hand, some aspects of her message came across as unintentionally cruel, as well as potentially as restrictive as societal expectations if Enola really took it all to heart.

I'm glad that Springer opted to give this series a proper ending rather than dragging it out forever, although I admit that one more book, perhaps featuring all three of the Holmes siblings working together, would have been nice.

Extras:

For some bizarre reason, this ended with an excerpt from the first book in the series. I really do not recommend reading this series out of order, so hopefully everyone who reads Book 6 has, at the very least, previously read Book 1.

This series! It always manages to leave me smiling, and I can't imagine a more satisfying finish. I LOVED the family interactions here, the mystery was almost an aside for me. Hooray for sleuthy teens! ( )

A most satisfactory ending to the series with the way left open for more adventures if Enola so chooses. Great series about Sherlock Holmes' younger sister, who is looking for her disappeared mother and pretending she is older than 14 and living by herself in London AND solving mysteries while trying to avoid getting caught by her brothers.

"Mister Sherlock, I'm that glad to see you, I am, and that obliged . . ." Mrs. Lane, faithful Holmes family servant, who has known the great detective since he was a boy in short pants, cannot keep the quaver out of her voice or the tears out of her dim old eyes.
