A Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie R. King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Mary meets women's lib. Well, actually Mary was already plenty liberated herself, but she joins a feminist church / cult and works to solve a case. Now an Oxford graduate and coming into her inheritance, she begins to figure out what she wants for her adult life, and where Holmes might fit into it all.
I love this series so much. Holmes has mellowed in his old age, but not lost that arrogant intelligence. Mary is the perfect match for him, as a partner and an equal.
Lots of good disguises and red herrings in this one all leading up to a very satisfying ending that left me eager to read book 3.
