Wouldn't It Be Deadly author D. E. Ireland has done it again. Paired Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle for another romp of doing what they seem to do well solve murders!

Henry and Eliza are at the posh Royal Ascot, that big horse racing extravaganza where everyone dresses up to see and be seen and to bet on their own horses. Fortunes are made as well as lost in moments over the outcome of these races.

Eliza's father is one of the co-owners of what he considers the best horse to come along in years, Donegal Dancer. Unfortunately, other co-owners are being found lifeless, thereby eliminating payout to a corpse. More for the survivors. But it seems as though the murders are more complicated than that.

D. E. Ireland (actually two authors pairing their wit and wisdom to create a fun and delightful series) have crafted another whimsical read. I found Eliza to be smart but fun-loving. Not a dizzy blonde type. She has a mind and loves to use it.

Henry is getting older and is a bit gruff. Which pairs well with Eliza. I fell in love with Eliza's stepmother. The cast needed an embarrassment with which to deal. She is a true delight. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
