The Theory of the Leisure Class (Modern Library Classics)
Thorstein Veblen, Alan Wolfe
The Case of the Gypsy Good-bye - Nancy Springer After her father's death and her mother's disappearance, Enola Holmes escaped her older brothers and went into business for herself as a consulting detective. The case of a missing duchess brings her and Sherlock Holmes together, and Enola must decide whether to maintain her lonely freedom or hope that her brothers have changed their minds about controlling her.

This book's mystery is pretty lightweight; far more time is spent on Enola's relationships with her brothers. I was glad to see a resolution there, but I wish this series could have continued forever, with its exquisitely described historical context and its wonderfully sensible heroine.
