    1. 3.5 stars I read several reviews of the first book in this series and was intrigued but also hesitant Taking characters from a play and movie and putting them into a new genre I was curious When this book became available, I snapped it up It s been years since I saw the movie so I am vague on some details which was probably a good thing as it meant I was less fussy about accuracy.Eliza struck me as flightier and shallower than I recall but my memory could be faulty She has a caring heart though [...]

    4. The first book in this series was terrific even got nominated for an Agatha Award So, to follow up, the authors have written a book that is, in my opinion, even better The plotting is intricate, the characters fresh and interesting, and the pace fast moving But my favorite thing about the book is the light touches I got the feeling the authors were enjoying the story and the characters themselves even than in the first book Everything just gells together for a beautifully presented mystery Terr [...]

    6. Perhaps not quite up to the quality of the first in the series, this is still a fun extension of My Fair Lady Lighthearted at times but smart and complex with lots of period and historical detail.

    7. With a dedication that simply states To Rex, Julie, and Audrey it s easy to see that I m not the only one who thinks of these actors when coming in contact with George Bernard Shaw s immortal characters As a newcomer to this series, I didn t know what to expect What I found was a wonderful blend of the Edwardian world and My Fair Lady The authors spoonfed just enough of the plot of the first book Wouldn t It Be Deadly to whet my appetite for it and to keep me from being confused.The writing team [...]

    10. This is the second book in a fabulous series by D.E Ireland that takes Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins on a suspenseful and exciting mystery The twists and turns kept me guessing throughout and made me laugh quite a bit, all the while vividly submerging me in Edwardian England The characters both those taken from George Bernard Shaw s Pygmalion and those fresh to the plot are engaging and well rounded, each adding a distinctive twist to the narrative I learned quite a bit about women s suffrag [...]

    12. The second in the series You didn t HAVE to read the first book although I did because the authors did a great job of making references back to what had happened several months earlier without making any of those details necessary to the new story I loved the incorporation of the suffrage into the storyline, as well as the horse racing world I love that Eliza is so feisty and Professor Higgins is well, Higgins Totally enjoy these books I just hope there will be another book in the series in the [...]

    13. This is a very traditional British mystery Book two of the Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins Mystery series, I did not read book one and had no trouble following this funny well written book Set in the Edwardian racing season we find murder, blackmail, kidnapping and a little history of the Suffrage movement Eliza and her family are great characters and Henry is quite the stiff British gentleman.

    14. It s a charming twist on British mystery writing Murder, kidnapping, horse racing, and the struggle for women s right to vote, all on one book Move Your Blooming Corpse is the second book in the series, and features wonderful character development and verbal interplay Details about location and clothing build a strong image of the time The whodunnit was not difficult to decipher, it s but still a wonderful read Snippet from my feature article in British Weekly

    15. Very much enjoyed this book overall Knocked off a star because I didn t like the beginning I suspected the killer pretty early on and had some pieces of the motive The whole deal players and motives though I did not see Nice twists and turns Agree with Prof Higgins that Freddy is quite annoying and needs to go away.

    17. This one was even better than the first in the series, which I liked a lot.Someone is bumping off the owners of a race horse, and Henry and Eliza investigate.Very clever misdirection and interesting characters.There is a straight narrative, so people like my mother can easily follow the action.This writing duo is headed for great things.I received a free copy of this book in a contest.

    26. Part of what I call the fantasy detective genre They take characters out of fiction and make them detectives It only works for me if they follow good principles of detective story writing This one worked for me Eliza, Higgins and Pickering act the way they would in the play The detective story is crisply written and enjoyable It s the second in the series I think I ll look for the first.
