The Clockwork Scarab
I read the second in the series first, The Spiritglass Charade, and really enjoyed it, so I decided to backtrack and get the first in the series.
Irene Adler summons Mina Holmes (daughter of Mycroft, niece of Sherlock) and Evaline Stoker (sister of Bram) to the British Museum to enlist them in some detective work. Princess Alexandra is concerned about young society girls who have gone missing, and Miss Adler believes that Mina and Evaline may be able to investigate without being suspected.
Again, light, fun, and entirely appropriate for young readers, but engaging enough to entertain me, as well.
