Book 4 in the Enola Holmes series, and I STILL adore it!!!!! I have fallen in love with these books soooo much!!! And I just can’t stop talking about them!!!!! (I love the movie too! Though there is violence.)

In this book, Enola Holmes is doing pretty well in London. Her brothers have yet to catch her, she is solving cases and helping the poor, and not doing to badly on her own. But when an old friend turns up asking for help, leaving only a pink, paper fan behind as a clue. Enola must find her before it is too late!

This book was really good! With action and humor, I was totally captivated by every word! Now, this series is a bit violent at times, so I would say this book is 14 and up. (Also due to the talk of corsets, bustles and other “enhancers” this really isn’t a kid book, or a boy book.) There is also violence, stabbings, kidnappings, shootings and other such. (The violence isn’t usually described, but it is mentioned and explained.)

Over all, another amazing book in the Enola Holmes series and one I TOTALLY suggest! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • A very good read for teens!!!
  • Very clean and funny!


  • Mention of kidnappings and violence.

Enola is thrown into a tailspin when she receives a desperate message from her old friend, Lady Cecily. Enola knows she must help her friend before it’s too late – but she doesn’t know how! This complicated case has Enola hunting down clues all over London until she finally discovers the awful truth: Lady Cecily is being held prisoner! Enola must risk her own freedom and join forces with her brother, the famed Sherlock Holmes, to free Cecily. Can Enola trust her brother, and can they save Cecily in time?
