The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: Book 1: The Mysterious Howling, by Maryrose Wood

In this first book of a new middle-grade series, the heroine, fifteen-year-old Penelope Lumley, a governess and recent graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, is a beguiling mix of Jane Eyre and Sherlock Holmes.  For smart, sophisticated readers (5th grade through adult) who enjoy unusual characters, delightful language and light-hearted mystery with an English flavor.
