The Case of the Left-Handed Lady

The Case of the Left-Handed Lady (Enola Holmes Mysteries, #2)The Case of the Left-Handed Lady by Nancy Springer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great spin-off of Sherlock Holmes. Follows his younger sister as she makes her way on her own in London as a detective in her own right. In this edition she is trying to find a missing young woman from the aristocratic set. Did she run away to find her freedom from her stifiling life? Did she elope with the young man she recently met? Or was she kidnapped? Enola gets herself into many tight spots as she searches for the answer.

Strange Chemistry

Katya's World    TheAssassinsCurse-144dpi

I’ve read the above two titles from the Strange Chemistry imprint and have loved both of them.  I plan on trying to read everything they’ve got out- although it does not seem to be more than 15 or 16 titles right now.  Both of these books feature strong, plucky heroines who the reader can get behind and really root for.  I would classify Katya’s World as solidly Sci/Fi and The Assassin’s Curse as more of a Fantasy/Adventure with a tad of romance thrown in for good measure. 

I’ll be keeping my eye on what this imprint has in store in the future!
