If you will forgive me for being personal--I do not like your face, Mr. Ratchett.
Murder on the Orient Express - Agatha Christie

Reading has been slow going for me since the antibiotic they put me on keeps knocking me out cold.  I thought this was pretty funny.  This is my first Agatha Christie book and I am loving this guy Poirot.

"Here I was carrying on about a stupid turf war," she griped, "and you all were playing "The Spy Who Shagged Me." Not fair, Wainwright."

This made me laugh out loud.

The Dike Bridge, ugly and primitive and unrailed and unmarked, twelve feet wide and some seventy-five feet long, had been in place for twenty years, and no one had ever driven off it.

quote 2015-04-29 18:32
A legal secretary is not necessarily a secretary who abides by the law, but a secretary who works specifically for an attorney, paralegal, or judge. The qualifications are specialized: one must be capable of performing ordinary secretarial tasks while tolerating whatever brand of mental illness the attorney, paralegal, or judge is suffering. Secretaries who work in the non-legal field may argue with me that mental illness is not exclusive to the legal field. However, like eating disorders and ballet dancing, mental illness and law are a matched pair.
My Boss Is A Serial Killer: A Tale Of Murder, Romance, And Filing - Christina Harlin

This is the first paragraph of the second chapter.

 

FML....I am only on page 35 of 654 and there are two others in the series sitting on my TBR.

 

Also this legal secretary totally whiffed on warrants and other very legal documents that the cute detective shoved in her face while she was flaunting her availability and her flirting skills.

 

If misery loves company, you all are in for quite a night if this book keeps going the way it is.

"Did he detect a hint of blackmail? Yeah, she was trying to blackmail him into really marrying her. One thing he detested was a blackmailer, unless he was the one doing the blackmailing".
