Publisher's Summary

"A young girl who is empowered, capable, and smart...the Enola Holmes book series convey an impactful message that you can do anything if you set your mind to it, and it does so in an exciting and adventurous way." (Millie Bobby Brown) 

Enola Holmes is back! Nancy Springer's nationally best-selling series and breakout Netflix sensation returns to beguile listeners young and old in Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche.

Enola Holmes is the much younger sister of her more famous brothers, Sherlock and Mycroft. But she has all the wits, skills, and sleuthing inclinations of them both. At 15, she's an independent young woman - after all, her name spelled backward reads "alone" - and living on her own in London. When a young professional woman, Miss Letitia Glover, shows up on Sherlock's doorstep, desperate to learn more about the fate of her twin sister, it is Enola who steps up. It seems her sister, the former Felicity Glover, married the earl of Dunhench and, per a curt note from the earl, has died. But Letitia Glover is convinced this isn't the truth, that she'd know - she'd feel - if her twin had died.

The earl's note is suspiciously vague, and the death certificate is even more dubious, signed it seems by a John H. Watson, MD (who denies any knowledge of such). The only way forward is for Enola to go undercover - or so Enola decides at the vehement objection of her brother. And she soon finds out that this is not the first of the earl's wives to die suddenly and vaguely - and that the secret to the fate of the missing Felicity is tied to a mysterious black barouche that arrived at the earl's home in the middle of the night. To uncover the secrets held tightly within the earl's hall, Enola is going to require help - from Sherlock, from the twin sister of the missing woman, and from an old friend, the young Viscount Tewkesbury, marquess of Basilwether!

Enola Holmes returns in her first adventure since the hit Netflix movie brought her back on the national best seller lists, introducing a new generation to this beloved character and series.

The story continues!

Well written and told. I simply adore Enola's adventures and including Sherlock a bit more in this one is a delight!

The new narrator is quite good, too. Still breaks my heart to lose Katherine Kellgren to ovarian cancer. Grateful for all the wonderful books she narrated. ❤

Loved it!

Loved the story & the characters. Period novels are so fun. And Enola’s side of the story now includes her brother’s input. The narrator did an excellent job with each character’s accents & tone.

I want more!!

Another fantastic Enola case!

The Enola Holmes series is one of my favorite series that I've read. I was very ecstatic to read the next one in the series.

While the series as a whole is wonderful, this one might have been my favorite of them all. I enjoyed seeing more of Enola and Sherlock's relationship, both personal and while working a case. I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see Mycroft, the other brother. But I completely respect the author wanting to focus more on Enola and Sherlock's relationship, since they seem to have more in common.

Overall, this was a short, fantastic read, and I recommend it as well as the whole series.

I'm baffled by the mystery but love the story.

First, Nancy Springer crafted a superb story. As always, the pacing and characterizations were phenomenal and I especially enjoyed the return of Lord Tewksbury. (An adventure with Lady Cecily and Lord Tewksbury would be sensational. *Wink)

Second, Tamaryn Payne did a fantastic job stepping into massive shoes. Though Katherine Kellgren is sorely missed, I thoroughly enjoyed Tamaryn.

I'm flummoxed because there wasn't a mystery. Enola ponders the significance of a "Black Barouche" the entire book. That's a huge driver of suspense. When the reader learns the black barouche is a signifier for "trotted off to the asylum" the mystery comes together. This would have been very clever if Nancy hadn't ruined it in The Bizarre Bouquet. *Spoiler for Book 3* Enola plainly shows that she understands the colloquialism when she sinks to her bottom on a wooden crate to talk to the street urchin that delivered the second bouquet to Mrs. Watson. She jests that had she been married, her husband surely would have shipped her off in a Black Barouche for her actions. So....how does she forget 4 books later?

In all fairness, the books were written and released over a decade apart. (13 years to be exact). And yes, this gripe is particularly minor in the grand scheme of things.

Overall, a fabulous follow up to a fantastic series! I am anxiously awaiting the next installment.

Best in the Series

This book was amazing. It was truly the best in the entire series I think. I read all of the other ones and each of them has that surprised twist but this one with the way that everything turned out and how it had things in the prologe in the epiloge being sherlock and it being enola's start was truely amazing to see the two working together

Great for family time!

We listened to this book on a long car trip with a 13 and 15 year old. Lot's of suspense and humor for all of our age groups. There were great opportunities to turn it off and look up words like, flummoxed or to explain English words like sette (couch). Inspiring for young women to have a brilliant and brave role model who candidly explains her interactions with men underestimating her or how the clothing of the times restricted her.

Another good story

Enjoyed both this book and the new narrator. I did find the audio slightly rushed, however. Listening at 80% speed helped quite a bit.

Completely delightful tale of fictional younger sister

This was masterfully done, intriguing, entertaining, occasionally hilarious, but always gently respectful of the original. And there was a film made up the first of these stories, I think it’s available on Amazon prime, which was likewise very well done. More, please!
