The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline by Nancy Springer

Enola is still hiding from her brothers and masquerading as a secretary. Her latest mystery hits close to home. Her landlady is abducted and it's up to Enola to find out why. In the course of her investigation, she meets an elderly Florence Nightingale, admires the many uses of embroidery, and brushes up on her Morse Code.

What I thought: Springer does not disappoint in this latest installment in the Enola Holmes series. It was fast paced and riveting. As always, I was on the edge of my seat wondering if she could continue to allude her brothers.
