Summary

A twisty lesbian romance sequel to The Red Files about the family we can’t choose, and the one that chooses us.

What do a stolen food-delivery robot, a woman from the past, and a bizarre scheme to microchip military veterans have in common?

The infamous Caustic Queen, Washington DC bureau chief Catherine Ayers, would love to find out but she has a lot on her plate right now. She and her fiancée, reporter and Iowa girl Lauren King, are busy wedding planning in Lauren’s home town.

That means facing a lot of beefy mechanic brothers, a haughty cat, and a sharp-tongued Meemaw. Catherine’s sure she can play nice with everyone. Well, pretty sure. How hard can it be, anyway?

As always Lee Winter amazes me with her Ice Queens. The book is soo well written, has humor, steam and the greatest characters. The narration is also good

Under your skin.

I have greatly enjoyed reading both books in this series. Love both main characters and thought the audio interpretation fantastic. No wonder it won a prize. I await book 3?

Read 1 first...

If you read the first book first then you can get the dynamics of the characters and then you will understand their relationship and how it works. I liked the connection between the two books and the "hidden" character of the ex-lover.

it's ok

the narrator takes a while to get used to again (all voices are annoyingly breathy... sample before you buy)... the story starts to good around hour 3

Got under my skin

I loved both the main characters in this book.Having met the unlikely pair in Red Files I was surprised at the deepening of there love for each other and the growing together as family. Winter draws the secondary characters into this story with the skill we have learned to expect. The narrator fleshed out each and every character with change in timber and tone of her voice. A truly exquisite read I would recommend to anyone even if they had not read any of Winters work before.

Hope there's a book 3

I enjoyed the mix of twists in these two stories. I also enjoyed this one because of the closing of the loop with Ayers' family, or at least more details and her confrontation with her parents. I would like to see the series continued.

Wonderful Read

Another fabulously witty, funny, and intriguing story by Lee Winter, I loved getting back into the lives of King and Ayers and taking on another adventure and wedding. Victoria Mei did a wonderful job bringing Catherine, Lauren, and all the crazy Kings and other characters alive.

Revisiting the Caustic Queen is Worth Every Minute!

Lee Winter writes the best books. She never fails to deliver, especially on ice queens and Victoria Mei bring Catherine to life.

Excellent Audio!

I loved Under Your Skin. Great follow up to The Red Files. Great romance with plenty of investigative journalism and intrigue. Victoria Mei does an excellent job with the narration.

First half slow, but gets better

The trying-too-hard cleverness on the dialogue and overacted haughtiness of narrator made it an effort to listen through the first half of the story but I'm glad I did cuz the story improved and I ultimately enjoyed it despite the narrator.
