Marshall makes my heart swell This book wasn t as near as violent as The Wicked City was, but there are still a couple of scenes that will make your blood pump I listened to The Wicked Redhead on audio like the first book, and once again I think that is the way to go although it is also nice to have a physical copy to look back at and for the content at the back of it I actually listened to the audio at 1.5 speed and I think that is the perfect pace for both narrator s voices I found that listening to their normal voices was a bit of drag but sped up they both sound perfect Although, I will say that the narrator for Ginger has the perfect pitch to her voice and once again put me back in the 20s I m really enjoying the setting of this series, and the romance aspect combined with all the crap that Gin finds herself in as well as Ella s predicament has kept me interested and I find myself never wanting it to end Final Thought I absolutely loved The Wicked Redhead and it picked up exactly where The Wicked City left off so this is definitely a series you have to read in order I thought it had a bit of a slow start but eventually things got really interesting and this book ended with a nice bang I really can t get enough of Gin Kelly so I hope Williams will continue this series for a long time to come If you like historical fiction sent during the prohibition with some great romance that isn t too descriptive then you definitely need to check out this series The author s writing style is very vivid and immersive, and I would read anything she writes Thank you to the publisher for providing me with an advance review copy of this book, all opinions and thoughts are my own Beatrix Williams has spun an entertaining story This is the second book in the wicked City series I thoroughly enjoyed this book, however I do think not having read the first book detracted from my enjoyment a little I had a hard time getting into the story and I think that s because I did

previous book The story than bounces to 1998 and Ella who has just left her husband and is living in an apartment that is situated over the speakeasy where Ginger once worked Ginger s presents is still very strong in the building and Ella is intrigued What follows is a story filled with scandal, danger, secrets, lies, love, Family, blackmail, and deceit I have to admit I found the 1998 storyline a littlecompelling, however Ginger was such a dynamic character I also loved the little bit of mystery and trying to figure out what tide Ella and ginger together I m excited to see how everything is going to play out in the last book in the series.This book in emojis The audiobook was narrated by Dara Rosenberg and Julie McKay I love when books told from multiple perspectives are

Review originally appeared on Open Letters Review.Hot, and on the heels of 2017 s The Wicked City, the next installment in the series from the prolific Beatriz Williams gives readers a hearty dose of

time.In 1998, Ella Dommerich seeks sanctuary from a cheating husband in a Greenwich Village apartmen Review originally appeared on Open Letters Review.Hot, and on the heels of 2017 s The Wicked City, the next installment in the series from the prolific Beatriz Williams gives readers a hearty dose of Gin Kelly Picking up nearly exactly where the first book left off, The Wicked Redhead once again splits the story between two leading ladies and would be roommates, if only they weren t separated by time.In 1998, Ella Dommerich seeks sanctuary from a cheating husband in a Greenwich Village apartment that the fiery Geneva Kelly known as Ginger, or its fittingly shortened version, Gin called home back in 1924 The previous book saw the women get acquainted, or, rather, Ella s realization that her new building may be haunted by the ghosts of roaring twenties parties past The apartment itself still reeks of Gin.Book two slatherscement on the connection between Ella and Ginger, which seems to bethan a shared abode across history Ella discovers that one of her elderly family members may have known this mysterious woman in her heyday Intermingled with other revelations within her family sphere, Ella is on the hunt to uncoverdetails regarding Ginger s life and her abrupt disappearance from New York.Meanwhile, back in 1924, Ginger Kelly is in hiding on the sunny shores of Florida after being drawn into a plot to bring down her bootlegging stepfather in the previous installment She and her companions may have survived the brutal conclusion to that affair, but it has left scars on them all Now self tasked with raising her newly orphaned baby sister, Ginger begs her beloved Anson, the orchestrator of the previous mayhem, to give up his goals of being reinstated as a agent of prohibition A recurring nightmare tells her that his return to the force will eventually be the end of the man she loves.Though The Wicked City saw a fairly even split between the two ladies sections, its follow up shows a heavy bias toward the vivacious Miss Kelly Only a few events dominate Ella s portion of this novel, and, as they are largely made up of internal struggles and quiet unraveling of family mysteries, her sections prove a stark contrast to the series of events in 1924 Making up only about a quarter of the book, Ella s contributions feel notably sparser and certainly less exciting in comparison.The dominant portions of the book following Gin Kelly show her dealing with the consequences of not only the physical attacks from her stepfather, but also the long reaching impacts of earlier choices, including playing with a particular man s heart The events of the first book forced her to realize her own infallibility and although she retains her dazzling confidence in this sequel, a humbler side of Ginger emerges.What results is a fun, if lopsided, new addition to the series Beatriz Williams writes with the elegant breeziness of a practiced hand the ease with which she endears her characters to readers alone makes the book praise worthy Ella s search not only for her familial connection to Ginger, but also for the reclamation of her own voice following her husband s heartbreaking betrayal will likely prove extremely relatable to the audience, and Ginger is finely crafted firecracker, thrumming with life.With such characters, it is hard not to notice the missed opportunities present in this second book Many questions from the first book lay unanswered, their existence all noted in this installment with no hint as to whether or not they will ultimately be resolved For instance, still lurking in the shadows is Ginger s biological father A fewbreadcrumbs are dropped on the path when Gin receives what she believes to be an unsigned letter from him Never outright revealing his identity, his attempt at communication seems to make Gingeruncomfortable than anything else when asked why she wants to learn her father s identity she replies with characteristic snark, not because I m sentimentalonly because the devil seems to know who I am, and I don t particularly enjoy the mismatch By the end of the book, readers, too, will likely be wondering about the dangling end to this missed connection.One can hope that The Wicked Redhead will not be the last Wicked City novel Beatriz Williams aims to pen The characters are downright addictive and far too enjoyable to be given up after a mere two books Beyond that, the frustratingly unresolved storylines demand a definitive conclusion to the series The lack of closure is bound to keep readers up at night, though such an interruption still may be preferable to the late night clamor of a ghost speakeasy
