9780062087799: Devil May Care

Ellie and Henry are young, rich, and engaged. When Ellie’s eccentric Aunt Kate asks her to house-sit at her palatial estate in Burton, Virginia, Ellie is happy to oblige. She feels right at home there with the nearly invisible housekeepers and the plethora of pets, but conventional Henry finds Aunt Kate and her lifestyle a little hard to take. After he leaves, Ellie realizes that there are disturbing secrets about the local aristocracy buried in a dusty old book she has carried into the mansion, and her sudden interest in the past is attracting a slew of unwelcome guests—some of them living . . . and some, perhaps, not. But there are no such things as ghosts, are there? And the terrible vengeance that Ellie and her friends seem to have aroused—now aimed at them—surely cannot be . . . satanic.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Peters earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. She was named Grand Master at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986 and Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1998. In 2003, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Malice Domestic Convention. She lives in a historic farmhouse in western Maryland.

From AudioFile:

Ghostly apparitions in creaky mansions and townspeople fearing damaging secrets from the past combine to wreak havoc on Ellie's vacation house-sitting in rural Virginia. She's understandably scared, but we aren't. There's mirth as well as mayhem in Peters's mysteries, and Grace Conlin reads with a mischievousness suggesting that nothing really bad will happen. Her arch delivery reinforces Peters's descriptions of unlikable people, Ellie's stuffed-shirt fiancŽ in particular, but her voice warms when impersonating Ellie's eccentric aunt or Ellie herself. Even during the climactic scene her pace does not quicken, nor does her tone become tense. Consider this a puzzling caper, capably, if not dramatically, read.
