Meredith Against the Wind (Meredith, #2) Reviews
What’s It About?Meredith moves to Lovelace, Virginia to begin her life anew, and hopefully recover from her breakup with her boyfriend, Nick. Instantly, her neighbors embrace her and play matchmaker, setting her up with a newly divorced attorney, Wes, who lives across the street from her.Immediately, she is charmed by him, much like everyone else in the neighborhood, but she soon learns that insecurity and a need to control is hidden under his shiny, pristine exterior. Meredith’s future and free will are at stake, all in the name of “love”.My Thoughts:Oh my God! I LOVE Meredith! I am going to be seriously depressed when I finish this series!But anyways, in my last review I pondered whether or not Meredith might have border line personality disorder. I thought this because of how she clung to her boyfriend Nick. I can now definitely say she does not, based on her actions and behavior in the second novel. Her confidence spiked, she stood up for herself against mean spirited teenagers, an undermining boss, and a boyfriend who was interested in a cookie-cutter girlfriend. I even pictured her walking a little straighter in this novel. :)Wes certainly pushed the boundaries with Meredith. He slowly tested the waters, and continued to push her further and further past her comfort zone. His grip seemed to get tighter and tighter on her. Poor Meredith… she either has a boyfriend who pushes her away, or one who barely gives her any breathing room!Another thing I really enjoyed in this novel was her interactions with her students and colleagues. I was excited to see what would happen next with Rosalie, and what complaint Nancy would have next. It added a little more drama to the book, and showed her life outside her romantic pursuits.I loved Meredith Against The Wind, and enjoyed seeing her grow as a woman. I’m super curious to see what book 3 holds in store for Meredith!I would gladly recommend this novel to anyone who is interested in a story that is based on a woman’s experiences. If you enjoy women’s fiction, you will surely enjoy the Meredith series.Full review @ https://aprillwood.wordpress.com/2015...
Meredith Against the Wind (The Meredith Series Book 2) by Amanda GaleMeredith is settled in the suburbs of Washington D.C. (Virginia) and ready to start her new job and (hopes) a good life. There she meets the neighbors and a nice man named Wes Bickhart. Wes is the opposite of her ex-boyfriend (Nick). He is professional, determined and knows exactly what he wants out of life, which includes Meredith. To Meredith it seems to be perfect, almost too perfect. Wes definitely can offer her security, stability and all the luxuries life has to offer. She starts to question what is most important to her, and once again she is in a situation where she has to make some (important) life decisions. Even though Meredith had come to accept (most of) her past, there are still emotions she can not, or will not change. Is Wes the man for her? Is she willing to makes sacrifices? And most important is perfection what she is really after in life?Meredith Against the Wind is the perfect continuation of Meredith's life. I like how she has grown and her self determination. Meredith is someone I would love to be friends with. Well educated, friendly, fun a good person. Amanda Gale knows how to bring her characters to life. She brings you into Meredith's world as if you are a friend, yet we get to see exactly how she feels. I highly recommend Meredith Against the Wind to those who love drama/romance. I also recommend book one in the series Meredith Out of the Darkness.
This book was tough to read, mostly because I loved Meredith and Nick in the last book, and watching Meredith move on from a place in her life that seemed to suit her so well and make her so happy was heartbreaking. The beginning was sad and lovely, and I was happy to see Meredith move on to a new job and find friendships with Katrina and Henry. For all of Wes's charm and good qualities, though, the whole time he was around, I found myself watching along in a constant cringe like a good friend might, wanting Meredith to heal and move on, but unable to ignore the red flags that came along with his behavior. Plus I missed Nick. But I think standing up for herself and walking away will leave her stronger. I'm hoping things look up for her in the next books.
Meredith Against the Wind is the second in a four book series following the love life of Meredith Beck, a high school English teacher. In the first book, Meredith Out of Darkness, her heart has been broken and she feels it will never mend. Now she’s in a new place picking up the pieces and trying to figure out who she is again.Meredith told herself no more men, but before she knew it she was falling for her neighbor Wes Bickhart. Wes wasn’t like Nick in the sense that he was more successful, more sure of himself, and could give Meredith things Nick couldn’tThis book really shows a strong side of Meredith and you see this when she’s fighting with Wes about his controlling ways. Honestly, I think that Wes was a bit needy and that’s coming from personal experience.There were so many instances when Wes was making decisions “for” her instead of discussing it with Meredith and seeing how she feels. One of the bigger issues that came up was that Wes felt Meredith didn’t need to work anymore. For those women, including myself, that like to have independence by earning a paycheck, Wes’s insistence would have been a deal breaker for me.In the second book you get to see Meredith grow in a number of ways and you get to know her a little bit more. You can read this as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading the series in order. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to my followers who enjoy reading Women’s Fiction novels. You will become an instant fan of Amanda Gale after you start reading the Meredith series.
