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.
Praise for Get Me to the Grave On Time
"D.E. Ireland takes Four Weddings and a Funeral and does it one better by adding murder!" ―Victoria Thompson, Bestselling author of Murder in Morningside Heights
“Pull out the stopper! D.E. Ireland once again uncorks a charming and high-spirited mystery, with the enchanting Eliza Doolittle and delightfully grumpy Henry Higgins on the case. An enjoyable and amusing read!" ―Susanna Calkins, Macavity Award winner for The Masque of a Murderer
"The wonderful thing about this story is that if you are familiar with the George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion or the movie My Fair Lady, you know these characters and can jump into this series anywhere. Of course, I believe you should start at the beginning... This writing team captures these characters wonderfully. The dialogue is spectacular, especially between Higgins and Eliza, but all the others too. I hear the voices from the movie so clearly in my head. The story comes alive for me in the voices of Audrey Hepburn, Rex Harrison, Wilfrid Hyde-White and Mona Washbourne. To have the characters sleuthing around London, even the East End in just brilliant." ―Lori Caswell
