Under Your Skin (On The Record #2) Reviews
Another homerun by Lee Winter - pun absolutely intended. I am really going to miss Catherine and Lauren. The focus of the book being so much on their relationship yet staying true to their cores by letting them chase down not 1 but 2 huge stories that seem eerily similar to many of the tech advances we are seeing embraced by the masses today. The passion was off the charts and Catherine finally getting some much needed closure from her family and Michelle really made their story complete. I foun ...more
In this book we get to meet Lauren’s family as she and Catherine travel home to plan their wedding. We also get a highly entertaining and engaging case for our fabulous duo to solve. I can see our government trying to do this kind of stuff! (😱) This is a follow up to The Red Files and I recommend you read both! I received an arc for my honest opinion.
Under Your Skin by Lee Winter is the sequel to her novel The Red Files. Please, give yourself a treat and read that one first. In the sequel, we are reunited with Lauren King and the Caustic Queen, Catherine Ayers. They are living in Washington DC pursuing their careers in journalism while planning their wedding in Lauren’s home state of Iowa. You’re saying to yourself, “Catherine Ayers in Iowa?” Yes! It is absolutely wonderful to see her out of her element with Lauren’s little brothers trying t ...more
More! Give us more! 😀
But seriously, I’ve been waiting for this sequel since it’s been announced and it was so worth it. I’m always afraid of sequels since many authors tend to go too sappy, trying to keep their characters up on that “happily ever after” pedestal. Which IMO it’s such a bore. Not Lee Winter though... Catherine and Lauren keep their chemistry, their wit, and the sparks still fly even when they’re not in agreement.
Under Your Skin has certainly less action and investigative journali ...more
Overall, I really enjoyed this sequel to "The Red Files".
There were many things to like about this story. I appreciate books that focus on a couple *after* they've gotten together. The story takes place in Iowa which is a first. And, in addition to the romantic plot line, we get a mystery of sorts. It's not a mystery in the traditional sense but investigative journalism going down the rabbit hole to get to the bottom of an issue. The fact that so much of the investigation is topical to real news ...more
Catherine Ayers is one of those larger than life characters that stay with you long after a book is over, especially if you like strong, caustic ice-queens. If you haven't heard of her, consider picking up the Red Files, where we first meet her and the plucky, idealistic and much younger reporter who de-ices her.
This sequel deals with the aftermath of the last scene where Catherine very publicly outs their relationship as well as resolve her family issues. Also on the plate is the upcoming weddi ...more
I received an ARC of this book from Ylva Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
First thing first: yes this is a sequel and yes you need to read the prior book before reading this book here. It feeds off of the prior book and follows the same couple from that prior book. I should mention titles, no? I’m referring to The Red Files
Second thing second: Lee Winter has some massively high overall average rating on Goodreads, *looks*, an impressive 4.42 rating. Most of my friends and those I foll ...more
Lee Winter's writing is absolute brilliance and so I very much enjoyed the sequel to The Red Files. Catherine and Lauren head to Iowa to meet Lauren's family and plan their wedding. But even in Iowa, the two women stumble upon a story, and in the midst of everything else going on begin to discover the shocking truth.
I'm the odd one out here for sure, as the first half of the book dragged for me, and it took me a long time to get into it. The mystery didn't really begin until about 50% of the wa ...more
