Gaby Mortimer is the woman who has it all. But everything changes when she finds a body on the common near her home. Because the evidence keeps leading back to her. And the police seem sure she's guilty.... Under Your Skin is an unpredictable, exquisitely twisty story, which proves that there are only three rules in life that mean anything: Assume nothing. Believe no one. Check everything.

Good book and a really good narrative. Enjoy listening to it, I sometimes feel that the narrator makes the book and in this case she did. Loved the twist at the end and that's all I'm saying..Read it.

Librarian Syd Murphy flees the carnage of a failed marriage by accepting an 18-month position in Jericho - a small town in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Her plans to hide out and heal her wounds fall by the wayside as she gets drawn into the daily lives of the quirky locals. She becomes fast friends with Maddie Stevenson, the enigmatic physician who has returned to the backcountry community to take over her late father's medical practice.

Where does Jericho rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right at the top, I enjoyed the tiny references to Xena that only a fan would find..like "Don't go all Xena on me" and 'I have many skills'. It was hard for me not to put the characters from the TV show into a modern day setting. The banter between Maddie and Syd starts out charming and ends up a little annoying. There's far to many ..'Oh my gods' and eye rolling and raised eyebrows. The character's are perfect..too perfect, Maddie is accomplished in EVERYTING and I mean EVERYTHING. Six foot of poised beautiful brunette perfection and Syd, short blond and very cute. For those fond of Xena, like I am, the descriptions of the two women are unmistakable to me.The relationship between the two characters becomes a little unreal..I don't think Maddie's pain from her past relationship or death of her father isn't defined enough.Do 'perfect' lesbians like this exist...

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maddie..no Syd..no Maddie..oh I don't know, I can't pick.

What does Christine Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Her voice..I don't know what I fell in love with first..Maddie, Syd or the Narrators voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When they finally get it together

Any additional comments?

I was ill with a virus when I listened to this book..nailed it over 4 days, I could listen to that voice for hours..and did.

The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes Lancaster County to its core.

Loved it there wasn't anything I disliked.
I would recommend you read this. I found myself at the end wanting to know what happened next.
The characters are full and the narrative matches the characters. Immerse yourself in a different world for a while.
