    4 1 2 Stars I realized that the next review I did, was going to be my 400th Goodreads review I decided to put down the ARC s and pick out a book that I have wanted to read for a long time I loved Winter s, Requiem for Immortals, and after hearing such good things about The Red Files, I thought there was a good chance I would enjoy this I m happy to say this book absolutely lived up to my expectations.I do have to admit, at the beginning of this book, my heart plummeted I did not like it I 4 1 2 Stars I realized that the next review I did, was going to be my 400th Goodreads review I decided to put down the ARC s and pick out a book that I have wanted to read for a long time I loved Winter s, Requiem for Immortals, and after hearing such good things about The Red Files, I thought there was a good chance I would enjoy this I m happy to say this book absolutely lived up to my expectations.I do have to admit, at the beginning of this book, my heart plummeted I did not like it I don t like that stereotypical vapid LA personality, and this was filled with it Luckily that all started to change when the two mains were really introduced to us as readers You have the Midwest farm girl, Lauren King vs the ice cold Caustic Queen , Catherine Ayers What a yummy set up for two characters to fall for each other I had just read another book that looked like one of the mains was going to be this cold kind of character But then the author pivoted and made her a total sweetheart I m glad Winter kept Ayers tough exterior It kept the relationship on its toes, and made for some unbelievable chemistry The kind of chemistry that jumps off the page at you Winter, mentioned she modeled Ayers after Miranda Priestly from DWP , to kind of give you an example of her type of attitude She was tough and did hurt Lauren, but it made the payoff, of the relationship, all thatenjoyable.I love a good mystery, love how the clues unfold, and trying to put together the pieces I was so very impressed how Winter put the whole story together I was totally sucked into it, and really enjoyed it It even had a bit of excitement, to keep you, as a reader, on your toes What also is good about this book, you don t have to be a mystery fan to enjoy this The mystery is not too hard hitting Also, the chemistry and little bit of angst, and the flow of their relationship, will work for romance fans I would love to see if Winter will ever write ahard hitting detective or PI type of mystery The way her mind works, she could absolutely pull it off.I know I m late to the party on this one So many of my Goodreads friends have already read this I m happy to say, the hype is real Winter keeps impressing me with every book she writes If you have this book on your to read list, don t keep putting it off like I did, it s too good to miss

    This one starts off slow and I struggled to keep interested as Lauren King, intrepid entertainment writer for the Daily Sentinel bumbled about in the opening chapters She traded barbs with the cold and professional Catherine Ayers and I thought this would be another down on her luck country girl falls for glamorous former Bureau Chief romance novel Cue the make out, break up, make up of a traditional romance Wow, was I wrong Once these two reporters sniffed out something amiss in a room full This one starts off slow and I struggled to keep interested as Lauren King, intrepid entertainment writer for the Daily Sentinel bumbled about in the opening chapters She traded barbs with the cold and professional Catherine Ayers and I thought this would be another down on her luck country girl falls for glamorous former Bureau Chief romance novel Cue the make out, break up, make up of a traditional romance Wow, was I wrong Once these two reporters sniffed out something amiss in a room full of celebrities and Nevada hookers the story took off and I was drawn into the investigation I was impressed with the author s ability to build depth and tension into what initially seems like just an odd set of circumstances It was a pleasure to watch the growing relationship between the two women as they dug through the clues and used any and all contacts to ferret out the truth The witty dialogue was a nice balance to the increasing danger levels they faced Their quirky collection of friends added another level of fun and complexity to the novel Best of both worlds, we get to enjoy a slow burn relationship along with a first rate investigative story that rivals anything the big name mainstream authors are marketing Well done 4.5 starsARC received from publisher via NetGalley for review
