THE WICKED REDHEAD, by @authorbeatriz
In 1924, Geneva (aka Ginger/Gin for her red hair) has recently and hastily left NYC with Prohibition Agent Oliver Anson after getting into serious trouble with powerful bootleggers. In 1998, Ella is newly separated from her husband, Patrick, after she caught him cheating on her. She is also investigating a sexy photo of a mysterious redhead. Could it be Gin?
The story alternates between the two women/time periods, and as with the first in the series, The Wicked City, I was absolutely immersed in the story from beginning to end. The story picks up right where City left off which I loved. These characters are so vivid and real, and I love how Gin’s character speaks in the first person directly to the reader. Her tongue in cheek attitude and sense of humor is vastly amusing.
This could be read as a standalone, but I’d highly recommend reading them in order. That way, it would be less confusing and more meaningful since you’ll be so much better acquainted with the characters and their back stories. This sequel tied up some loose ends from the first book but again, I am left wanting more and am hoping for a third, especially since there are still some unanswered questions.
