This is a fantastic sequel to Wickedly Dangerous. Beka is a starkly different heroine to Barbara and this contrast between two sister Babas was brilliantly done. Not only did Wickedly Wonderful take me on a whole new adventure, but it also let me fall in love with a new, and striking female lead. I love chief protagonists that are full of self-doubt, I think that it makes them all the more real and relatable. So to go from Barbara’s cocky self-assurance (and total lack of social skills) to Beka’s open and vulnerable persona was endearing and refreshing.

Where Wickedly Dangerous taps into our need to protect and nurture our children, Wickedly Wonderful emphasises the importance of the ocean in all of our daily lives. The beach-feel of the book and characters is so much more laid back than that of Barbara’s tale and the pages simply ooze relaxation and sweetness. Although, beneath her surfy exterior, Beka shows herself to have a backbone of steel when it really counts.

I’m reminded of the realities of cancer and radiation poisoning throughout this book, they’re such serious issues that touch upon so many lives. So reading about them in a not-so-tragic way brings home the pain and suffering that this can cause, without making you cry. Which I appreciate, sometimes it is good to have a nice sob over a book, but some days not so much.
