Case of the Bizarre Bouquets: Enola Holmes Mystery #3

Case of the Bizarre Bouquets: Enola Holmes Mystery #3 by Nancy Springer
It is March, 1889, in London, and Enola is still lodging in the East End and evading her brothers, Mycroft and Sherlock, so as to avoid boarding school. For six months, she has been using the alias Ivy Meshle and pursuing her "life's calling" as a Perditorian ("finder of the lost") but, afraid that she has been discovered, she must choose a new identity: Viola Everseau. Her new disguise: a beautiful woman. Her new case: finding the missing Dr. Watson. Her first act is to visit Dr. Watson's wife, and her first clue is a bizarre bouquet the frantic woman has received. Want to read about other books in the Enola Holmes Series?

I loved this book. I am a big fan of all the Sherlock Holmes stories, so to have a new series of books about his younger sister is great. It is fun how she communicates with her mom, who lives with the gypsies, in ciphers using the language of flowers through the newspapers.
She is only 14 and living alone in London, finding missing persons, avoiding her brother Sherlock by using disguises... And I get a laugh out of the things she stores in her 'enhancers'.
I give this one 4 ****!!
