I'm thrilled to be a stop on the 
blog tour for D.E. Ireland
and their new book
Book 3 in the Eliza Doolittle & Henry Higgins Mysteries

Although Eliza still refuses to marry Freddy Eynsford Hill, everyone around her seems headed for the altar. Not only is her cousin Inspector Jack Shaw about to wed his sweetheart, but Freddy's younger sister Clara is engaged, along with the niece of Henry Higgins. Another blushing bride is the sixty-year-old Duchess of Carbrey, who plans to marry a handsome fellow half her age. But when the groom is found dead, a jealous mistress is blamed for the murder. However, the death may also be connected to the stolen treasure of an Indian temple. 

Disaster strikes next at Jack and Sybil's wedding. Soon after, the wedding reception of Higgins's niece takes a lethal turn. Someone is targeting bridegrooms, and the wedding of Freddy's sister is next. Before another bridal bouquet is tossed, Higgins and Eliza must track down the killer. Otherwise, Clara's bridegroom - and perhaps the bride herself - may be murdered before they can get to the church on time.

About D.E. Ireland

D.E. Ireland is the pseudonym of long time friends and award-winning authors, Meg Mims and Sharon Pisacreta. In 2013 they decided to collaborate on a unique series based on George Bernard Shaw’s wonderfully witty play Pygmalion, which inspired the classic musical My Fair Lady.
At work on Book Four of their Agatha nominated series, they also pursue separate writing careers.
Currently both of them write cozy mysteries for Kensington under their respective new pen names: Sharon Farrow and Meg Macy. Sharon’s Berry Basket series debuted in October 2016, and Meg’s Shamelessly Adorable Teddy Bear series will be released in May 2017. The two Michigan authors have patient husbands, brilliant daughters, and share a love of tea, books, and history.

A stellar installment in an amazingly brilliant series!

I knew I was going to be in for a wonderful adventure of reading when I heard of the first book in this series, WOULDN’T IT BE DEADLY. Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins solving mysteries? Yes, please! What could be better? The Phantom of the Opera (Erik) and Christine turning sleuths? (Are you reading this, D.E.? Erik and Christine?  Huh? 😉)

This book in one word? Perfect! Weddings and murders and glorious mayhem are in store for readers of GET ME TO THE GRAVE ON TIME. There was so much going on in this tale, I couldn’t . . . okay, wouldn’t put the book down! The story sailed across the pages at a delightful pace, and was penned with skilled writing, filling every chapter with mystery, intelligence, and humor.

When reading the books in the Eliza Doolittle & Henry Higgins Mysteries, I am transported to the very homes and streets I saw in the charming musical. I hear the voices of Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison clearly in my head. And I love the situations D.E. Ireland gets these two timeless characters into. Watching the characters from the musical (I admit to never having read the play, PYGMALION) change and grow in book one of this series, through to GET ME TO THE GRAVE ON TIME, has been some of the best and most entertaining hours of reading I have ever spent!
