I enjoy Enola Holmes mysteries. They give a fun and feminine flair to her brother, Sherlock Holmes, mysteries. This is rather a short book. I started it last night and will easily finish it today.

Genre: YA Mystery series

Pages: 155 pages

Publisher: Wednesday Books (St. Martin’s Press)

Publication Date: September 6, 2022

Enola Holmes, Sherlock’s much younger, and feistier, sister, returns in an adventure of a confused young Baronet’s daughter who is on the run from her father’s devious schemes in Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade. Enola Holmes, the much younger sister of Sherlock, is now living independently in London and working as a scientific perditorian (a finder of persons and things). But that is not the normal lot of young women in Victorian England. They are under the near absolute control of their nearest male relative until adulthood. Such is the case of Enola’s friend, Lady Cecily Alastair. Twice before Enola has rescued Lady Cecily from unpleasant designs of her caddish father, Sir Eustace Alastair, Baronet. And when Enola is brusquely turned away at the door of the Alastair home it soon becomes apparent that Lady Cecily once again needs her help. Affecting a bold escape, Enola takes Lady Cecily to her secret office only to be quickly found by the person hired by Lady Cecily’s mother to find the missing girl – Sherlock Holmes himself. But the girl has already disappeared again, now loose on her own in the unforgiving city of London. Even worse, Lady Cecily has a secret that few know. She has dual personalities – one, which is left-handed, is independent and competent; the other, which is right-handed, is meek and mild. Now Enola must find Lady Cecily again – before one of her personalities gets her into more trouble than she can handle and before Sherlock can find her and return her to her father. Once again, for Enola, the game is afoot.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake by Mazey Eddings, though I will try to when I write up my review later today. It made me laugh a lot; it made me cry during one particular scene; and it was just such a good story that shows ADHD in a way I’ve never seen before.

  • Genre: Romantic Comedy
  • Pages: 332 pages
  • Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
  • Publication Date: September 6, 2022
Mazey Eddings, author of the “witty, fast-paced rom-com”* A Brush with Love, mixes passion and humor to create a luscious love story between two people stumbling through life and learning to open their hearts in Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake. Lizzie has made endless mistakes. Kitchen fires, pyramid schemes, bangs (of the hair and human variety), you name it, she’s done it… and made a mess of it too. One mistake she’s never made is letting anyone get closer to her than a single hook-up. But after losing yet another bakery job due to her uncontrolled ADHD, she breaks her cardinal rule and has a two-night-stand that changes everything. Once burned, twice shy, Rake has given up on relationships. And feelings. And any form of intimacy for that matter. Yet something about charming, chaotic Lizzie has him lowering his guard. For two nights, that is. Then it’s back home to Australia and far away from the pesky feelings Lizzie pulls from him. But when Lizzie tells him she’s got an unexpected bun in the oven, he’ll do whatever it takes to be a part of his child’s life… except be emotionally vulnerable, obviously. He’s never going to make that mistake again. Through a series of mishaps, totally “platonic” single bed sharing, and an underground erotic baking scheme, Lizzie and Rake learn that even the biggest mistakes can have the most beautiful consequences.

Oceanview Publishing sends me loads of widgets once a monthish and I never have an opening to fit any of them in. Well, I finally had an opening (sort of), so I am going to give Mystic Wind by James Barreto a try, and see how I like it. I haven’t read a Legal Thriller in forever but I do enjoy them and this one does sound good.

  • Genre: Legal Thriller
  • Pages: 402 pages
  • Publisher: Oceanview Publishing
  • Publication Date: September 6, 2022
The last remaining fragment of truth—hidden in the mire of the Mystic Creek Boston star-prosecutor-turned-corporate-attorney Jack Marino has risen fast and far from his upbringing in the Mystic housing projects. But after he’s savagely beaten in retaliation for his work as head of the District Attorney’s Urban Gang Unit, he’s fired because his powerful boss is running for governor and fears the beating may have shaken Jack’s formidable confidence. Jack lands a plush suite at his father-in-law’s mega law firm, making big money practicing corporate law. Although he seemingly has everything—money, privilege, and an heiress for a wife, what he doesn’t have is his own self-respect. When he is given a chance to get back into criminal law—this time as defense counsel in a capital murder case—he finally feels alive again. But to save his client from death row, he’ll face a criminal network far more organized and powerful than he could have imagined. The case will take Jack back to the projects he thought he’d escaped. He’ll risk personal and professional ruin, and ultimately his very life, to fight the corrupt forces determined to see his client go down—forces that may have already given absolute immunity to the real killer.
