Nancy Springer - A ​különös krinolin esete
Enola ​Holmes újabb halálos rejtélybe keveredik: a tét ezúttal szeretett házinénije, egyben pótanyja élete. Enola Holmesnak manapság nem túl sok jut családjából; anyja eltűnt, kedvenc bátyja, Sherlock elől pedig bujkálnia kell. Nem csoda, hogy a már majdnem teljesen süket, a konyhaművészet terén komoly kihívásokkal küzdő, ám aranyszívű házinénijét, Mrs. Tuppert tekinti egyfajta pótanyának. Ám egy nap legnagyobb rémületére arra ér haza, hogy Mrs. Tuppert elrabolták. Ki tehetett ilyet, és miért? És mi köze van ehhez a krími háború zavaros históriájának, illetve a legendás ápolónőnek, Florence Nightingale-nek?

Nancy Springer - A ​halálos virágcsokor esete
Mindenki ​tudja, hogy dr. Watson Sherlock Holmes jobbkeze, így eltűnése óriási döbbenetet vált ki. Még magának Sherlocknak sincs fogalma arról, hol lehet hűséges barátja. Enola figyelmét felkelti a rejtélyes eset, de vannak egyéb gondjai is: bátyjai továbbra is keresik, és lelepleződése katasztrofális következményekkel járna. Ám amikor a Watson-rezidencián egy folyondárral, galagonyával és fehér pipaccsal teli bizarr virágcsokor tűnik fel, Enolának cselekednie kell. Felölti legkifinomultabb álruháját, és a csokor küldőjének nyomába ered - mégpedig sebesen, mert tudja: a virágok a halált szimbolizálják. A Magyarországon is óriási népszerűségű Enola Holmes-sorozat harmadik részében a tétek minden eddiginél magasabbak, a rejtélyek pedig minden korábbinál mélyebbek.

Megtalálása érdekében Enolának az éjszakai London gyilkosokkal teli utcáira merészkedve kell a nyomok - egy ferde létra, egy sanda tekintetű bolti eladó és egy politikai pamflet - után erednie, hogy ráleljen a balkezes lányra, ám ezzel önnön álcáját is veszélybe sodorja.

Nancy Springer - Enola ​Holmes and the Black Barouche
"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 bestselling series and breakout Netflix sensation returns to beguile readers 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 fifteen, she's an independent young woman--after all, her name spelled backwards 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, M.D. (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 bestseller lists, introducing a new generation to this beloved character and series.
