Publisher's Summary

Nancy Springer's nationally best-selling series and breakout Netflix sensation is back! Enola Holmes is on the case, when a young porter - the boy in buttons - disappears without a trace.

Enola Holmes, the much younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft, owns a building in the heart of 19th-century London, a place she uses under pseudonyms to front for her investigative work. Employed there is a porter - Joddy, a young boy in a uniform festooned with buttons - whose even younger brother substitutes for him when he's sick. But Paddy disappears after one day at the job, and Enola Holmes is alerted to this by the still ill Joddy.

Determined to find the missing porter, Enola travels to the rough part of London where the boys live and starts searching Aldgate Pump area for the missing boy. When she finds the missing buttons - but not the boy - she decides that drastic action is essential if she's to save the missing boy.

wasted point

I didn't notice the length of this story when I purchased it. I enjoyed the others but to say this was a short story is an understatement. this was a cliff note or summary of what the book should have been it was a waste to use my point for this

Ebola my librator

Can't wait to get the next book. its the unique way she has of writing, She really captures the times and adds just a little humor. The first book was very well written and envolved historical as well as marvelous characters. if you're not careful before you know it you're neatly drawn in for a whole night's reading.

Disappointed it was just a short story,

I've enjoyed all the other Enola Holmes stories by Nancy Springer, so in a quest for more I got this book too. I was quite disappointed, and the dsapointment that this was such a short story took away from the joy of reading.

Very grateful to Amazon for allowing me to return this title - the first time I've ever done this.
I'm looking forward to Elegant Escapade!
