    3.5 stars Assigned Good, but not great Be sure to read the first book The Wicked City before starting this one.

    I love historical fiction and the author is considered masterful at this genre However, I just couldn t get into THE WICKED REDHEAD, the sequel to THE WICKED CITY, which I haven t read Maybe it s because I didn t like main character Gin Kelly, described as a floozy in love with a disgraced Prohibition agent in 1924 The dual timeline narrative in 1998 with Ella Dommerich, who lives in the Greenwich Village apartment once occupied by Gin, also didn t compel me Other reviewers who have read all of Williams novels have been thrilled by this latest I am clearly an outlier As the French say, Chacun son go t 3 of 5 stars.Pub Date 10 Dec 2019 Thanks to the author, HarperCollins Publishers, and NetGalley for the review copy Opinions are mine TheWickedRedhead NetGalley

    4 out of 5 stars This was such a fun follow up to The Wicked City It took me awhile to get into it though, because I couldn t quite remember the events from book one as well as I would have liked Once I got into the story though, things took off and I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that I liked this book, book two in the series, than book one The dual narrative worked for me and I felt equally invested in both Ella and Gin s stories I also love that Williams s characters from her other novels make appearances Full review to come

    Beatriz Williams is one of my favorite authors I tell fans of historical fiction that they must read her books Since her first novel, she has woven wonderful tales most including, in a major or minor way, the Schuyler family In The Wicked Redhead we learn about Ginger Kelly in 1924 as well as Ella Dommerich Gilbert daughter of Pepper Schuyler in 1998, characters we met in Book 1 The Wicked City This book also starts by tying up a loose end from Williams Cocoa Beach It makes good sense to read all the author s books in order but at the very least, Book 1 in this series should be read first And luckily online I found a fictional Schuyler family tree, so I didn t have to struggle to remember all the people who made welcomed appearances in The Wicked Redhead So, getting back to this book we re taken on a fun ride with Ginger from Florida to New York and beyond entangled in the dangerous world of Prohibition and the love of two brothers And for Ella, we see her dealing with moving on from a bad marriage, discovering a new love and her fascination with a professional, provocative photograph of a sexy redhead who lived in her Greenwich Village apartment Ginger Kelly Many thanks to Edelweiss, HarperCollins and Ms Williams for an advance copy in exchange for this honest review.

  7. Christine Moore Christine Moore says:

    The Wicked Redhead picks right up where The Wicked City left us I absolutely love Gin Kelly and can not wait for of her story I loved catching up with Ella and Hector and can t wait to see what is next for them I loved how so many of the past characters of Beatriz Williams s books are making appearances I loved The Wicked Redhead and can not wait for of both Gin s and Ella s story I received an advanced readers copy and all opinions are my own.


  8. Patty Abarno Patty Abarno says:

    I struggled with the beginning of this novel just because I had to reacquaint myself with Gin and Ella s stories Once I was back on track I jumped right in and was so happy to hear the outcome of both Of their journeys Once again Beatriz spun an action packed tale that I devoured I Feel very lucky to have received this ARC and many thanks to William Morrow.

    I am so excited that Gin Kelly is back Thank you to edelweiss plus , Beatriz Williams and Harper Collins When an author can incorporate other novels, it is such a thrill Cocoa Beach and A Certain Age if you are a true fan, you will recognize the names in the Wicked Redhead Let s not forget to mention the law firm When reading this, I wanted to be in a smoky jazz filled room with a gin and tonic Beatriz can really set the scene Any my favorite quote has to be. flame haired mountain tart as I am.Already anticipating book three

    A woman pirate you say Beatriz Williams continues to dazzle us with strong character development and descriptive background setting I have to say, I have never read a historical fiction about a pirate, a woman no less The era was a big draw for me Many of Ms Williams books are from the 20 s prohibition, flapper era I also enjoyed learning about the rum runner days and the risks associated with the lifestyle I love the then now style that is ever so popular I particularly liked the moral set that greed can leave you a very lonely person, if one has any morals at all The drawback for me was in the characterization I did not relate to any certain character or their situations Surely, that is my opinion only, and does not necessarily reflect that of the majority.Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to review this new release All opinions are that of my own.and have had no outside influence TheWickedRedhead Netgalley
