Enola Holmes: The Case of the Missing Marquess by Nancy Springer

When Enola Holmes, sister to the detective Sherlock Holmes, discovers her mother has disappeared, she quickly embarks on a journey to London in search of her. But nothing can prepare her for what awaits. Because when she arrives, she finds herself involved in the kidnapping of a young marquess, fleeing murderous villains, and trying to elude her shrewd older brothers-all while attempting to piece together clues to her mother's strange disappearance. Amid all the mayhem, will Enola be able to decode the necessary clues and find her mother?

Here's another mystery series that I'm currently enjoying. I was never a Sherlock Holmes fan. Never read any of his books. But you know what; that isn't a prerequisite. with Set in the beloved Victorian Ages, this story brings back the simplicity of a Nancy Drew mystery with (I'm guessing here) the aspects of a Sherlock Holmes mystery. As for the audio book narration; Katherine Kellgren did a great job with the voices. She was believable as each character. Nothing much else to say except I really enjoyed this novel and cannot wait to read the other books in this series.
