Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade is the eighth book in the series of books about Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister. In this book, Enola tries to help her friend, Cecily, escape her father’s clutches.
Cecily was kidnapped in an earlier book in the series. She is now not a marketable society marriage prospect. Therefore, her father is trying to “unload her” on whatever cousin will have her. Obviously, Cecily is not happy. Still, there is no reason for her father to lock her up in her room with only a nightgown to wear. Enola comes to the rescue with a most bizarre plan. However, this was my favorite part of the book. After that the book’s pace slows down to a crawl and nothing much happens. The previous book, Enola and the Black Barouche, had much more action. However, it is always pleasant to spend some time with Enola so 3.5 stars for Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade!
