Episode 60 - Devil May Care by Elizabeth Peters

Welcome to spooky season, where we get ghosts in our brains that make us incapable of remembering the name of the book or half of the characters!  OooooooOOOOOoooo spooooky!  We love Halloween here at Bodice Tipplers so we decided to give you not one but two Halloween books - the first is Devil May Care  by Elizabeth Peters.  The second you'll have to wait to find out about - expect it at the end of the month. Ellie is a young... what does she do again?  Anyway a young lady engaged to a twit who housesits for her aunt.  The aunt is eccentric!  Donald is the neighbor's son.  Some ghosts appear by various means and occupations.   THE DEVIL IS THE DEVIL. I cannot stress enough how surprised I was by this - the actual devil makes an appearance in this book .  Yes, that is a spoiler.  Don't worry, I already told everybody I know.  THE DEVIL.  Ol' Splitfoot!  Lucifer!  The Adversary!  So, implied is that it has the kind of witchcraft that most of the modern witches I know wou

Episode 33: Irish Thoroughbred



Irish Thoroughbred is Nora Roberts' first book - we wanted to see where one of the richest, most popular authors around got her start.  Well.  It is something.
Adelia lives in 16th century Ireland and has lost everything, so she gets on a plane to 1980 and becomes a horse trainer!  Horse girl alert: THIS IS NOT A HORSE GIRL BOOK.  I have read a lot, you guys, a lot of books with horse races in them and I can assure you that these horse races are the least exciting horse races in the world.  Nora.  Please.


So Travis is the boring-ass romance novel dude who's always throwing her up against walls and stuff and he owns everything including the house she lives in, so that's just great.  There's a sham marriage, there's a rape attempt, there's some seriously weird Irish stereotyping... at least there's a shopping montage!
We do have a special treat for you - two different Rounds brothers get to talk about horse racing and horse drinking in this episode!
An inauspicious start:
