Devil May Care - Elizabeth Peters

Ah, finally! A ghostly apparition!

 

I was beginning to think that this entire book was going to be spent with me mind-yelling at Ellie to get as far away from Henry as humanly possible. What a horrible excuse for a man he is. Let me share:

 

Henry regarded her with affectionate amusement. She looked cute when she was sulking, like an irritated kitten or baby chick. (Henry's figures of speech were not very original.) She would soon learn to accept his gentle corrections gratefully; in the meantime he simply ignored her ill humor until it went away. That was the way to train people, show them that temper tantrums and pouting didn't have the least effect.


Ellie, girl, RUN. That man isn't worth a second of your time. Ass.
