Sorry to hear it end

Where does The Case of the Gypsy Goodbye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This ranks in my 2nd tier of favorites. It was really good (much better than a lot of others), but not my favorite.

Who was your favorite character and why?

As always, Enola is my favorite character. I enjoy listening to her growth, her humor and her interactions with Sherlock.

Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. Katherine is always an excellent narrator. Her accents and voices are always enjoyable, and this is comparable to her others.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it's short enough to listen to all at once, but even if it had been longer, I'd still want to hear it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this entire series. Although I've heard that this is the last book, I'm hoping that Nancy Springer will write more. I would love to watch Enola grow up and come into her own.

Another Great Enola Holmes Mystery!

I really like the character Enola Holmes. She is spunky and just as good a detective as her much older brother Sherlock. The narrator of this series is superb!

Satisfying conclusion to a delightful series

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Emails Holmes series and this final book makes a excellent cap-off to the series. I only wish there were more books featuring this engaging heroine and the other characters the reader has grown fond of, as well.

I hope it is not goodbye

This was either a wonderful conclusion to the series or a really good book in I hope a continually ongoing series. Enola is growing up and in fact one thinks perhaps her two brilliant brothers may be as well.
Set in Victorian England all of these stories have been educational as well as entertaining, telling a bit about the harsh realities of life in that time. The social injustice and the extremes of poverty suffered by so many of that era.
Layered over it all is a cracking good tale with lots of danger and suspense. The narration is perfect for the character and it all blends so well it carries you along, until suddenly it is sadly over until the next book comes out.
So much is wrapped up in this one that you are tempted to fear there is no more to write for these characters, but the door is left open a crack. Could it be? oh I hope so.
