    "A female Holmes??"

    The main character, Enola Holmes, is the younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes. Contrary to the plot summary, she does not work with her brothers on the case of the disappearance of Dr. Watson. In fact, she keeps her activities secret from them - and she does solve the case.

    Enola Holmes is a spunky girl, determined to make her way as a detective in Victorian England - despite her brothers' wishes that she be a respectable female. Her mother is a bit of a free spirit, apparently, and is not much help. Enola is, in my opinion at least, rather too focused on her relationship with her mother (very strained - they communicate in code in the personal column of a newspaper) and brothers (they want to send her to a finishing school). Despite that preoccupation, she takes effective action to find the good doctor, and I rather liked her.

    "A teenage, female Holmes"
    What made the experience of listening to The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets the most enjoyable?

    My daughter and I can both enjoy the story, the included history of the times makes for some fun discussions about women then and now and how much Enola can do on her own as my daughter is about the same age.
