I’m not entirely sure why I waited so long to read The Red Ledger Series by Meredith Wild, maybe it was the apprehension of crossing over into the suspense genre, which I almost never do. I’m a romantic, so I mostly stay within the confines of the Romance genre.
Now I’m disappointed that I waited, I should have known her works always leave me breathless and longing for more. Since the Hacker series I have been a trusting reader that Ms. Wild will deliver on an exciting plot, endearing characters and a writing style that will have you turning the pages until you find the last one which leaves you pining for the next book.
This book was nothing short of Ms. Wild’s previous works, her imagination knows no bounds and her writing style gives life to her characters like no one else.
Tristan Red is “murder for hire”, his past is darkness, his memories have been wiped after a military mission gone wrong. His new life, focus on hit after hit, blend in and go unnoticed. That is until Isabel Foster, daughter of a Pentagon official and unsuspecting victim calls out his name making him fail his mission.
He doesn’t remember how they are connected but he’s desperate to find out putting both their lives in danger making them both a target. Isabel knows she is the key to his memories, but she’s in love with a man who no longer exists. Tristan is oddly likeable despite his demeanor and while Isabel may be naive and broken her character shows great strength.
The story ends on a cliff hanger, but lucky for me Part 2 has already been released and I can’t wait to dive in! Romance readers if you’re looking for something different, this book is for you.
