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 59 - Ride the Thunder by Janet Dailey


 He's Brig McCord (no really), a Hatchet-scenario survivor, ex-soldier of fortune, and rancher.  She's Johanna something or other, hot redhead-in-certain-lights and general doer of nothing in particular (except for, of course, big game hunting with her dad.)  It's a tale of murder, mystery, and doing it - it's Ride the Thunder by Janet Dailey!

Content warnings for this include big game trophy hunting which is super gross, including some skinning and stuff, mild ravishing, a guy who's just an asshole to women including sex workers and anybody over the age of 25, and a father daughter relationship that doesn't seem to be incestuous or anything but it just kind of pings your Bad Dad radar.  Oh and of course murdering murder.  On the other hand, anti-content-warnings: no horses die and there's a gay character who isn't evil or funny, comes out in a nice scene to his sister, and then does not die.
