I'm so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for
Book 4 in the Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins Mysteries

In the fourth book from the Agatha Award nominated writing team of D.E. Ireland, famous literary characters Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins find they may have brought trouble with them when they attend a country house party in With A Little Bit of Blood.

Eliza is not happy when Higgins buys a snazzy roadster. Her misgivings prove correct when he becomes injured in a motor car crash. Forced to play nursemaid, Eliza is thrilled to accept an invitation to a house party from Lord Ashmore and his bride, the former Clara Eynsford-Hill. But upon their arrival at Banfield Manor, Eliza is dismayed to see her sweetheart Freddy arm in arm with a beautiful actress. Higgins is shocked to learn the woman who once stalked him is also attending the party. Things grow even worse when spiritualist Madame Evangeline arrives and warns of impending danger. Her prediction comes true when someone is killed during the following day's shoot in the forest.

Higgins and Eliza suspect it wasn't an accident, but murder. Every guest hides a dark secret that involved the dead man. But who hated him more? The French aviator, the American cinema actress, a lady novelist, the Austrian count, or a knighted explorer of the Amazon? Madame Evangeline's sΓ©ance may reveal what is really going on. But her cryptic words deepen the mystery, especially after another guest turns up dead.

Who is behind these murders? And has Higgins himself been targeted? As the day of the fox hunt begins, it seems likely that more than the fox will die. Before that happens, Eliza and the Professor must discover who may have a little bit of blood on their hands.

I never knew when I picked up the first book in this series what a grand time I was in for. Now four books in, and I can’t get enough! Now my favorite unlikely sleuthing team is back! D.E. Ireland, the writing team of Meg Mims/Macy and Sharon Pisacreta/Farrow, once again channel Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins to take readers on their most exciting adventure to date.

From the first page until the last of, WITH A LITTLE BIT OF BLOOD, I was enraptured with the characters. I could hear them so clearly in my head. I could envision every scene as it took place. I was so drawn into this book, I felt less a reader and more a character hidden within the story itself, living every scene first hand.  

The mystery within the story was top notch. There were so many ways it could have played out. Through every twist and turn and false lead, I was hard-pressed to guess whodunit and why. In the end, I was totally wrong, and wonderfully surprised.  

WITH A LITTLE BIT OF BLOOD is a must for fans of this series.
