To Write A Wrong by Robin Caroll


The second book in the Justice Seekers series focuses mainly on Riley Baxter’s story.

Riley is a writer who needs a good story to help boost her journalistic career. While testifying at a parole hearing for the man that killed her parents she meets Peggy and her two children Jasmine and Mikey. Riley is drawn to them because of the poverty they have been forced into when Peggy’s husband was put in prison. Riley decides that their story would be a great human interest story and also a story that will hopefully get her career back on track.

Peggy insists that her husband is innocent of the crime he was convicted of. On the night of a museum robbery his daughter swears that he was home with the family. During the course of her investigation Riley becomes convinced of Armand’s innocence as well. Once Riley starts investigating she puts the real culprit at risk of being discovered. He cannot allow that to happen and is determined to snuff Riley out to stop anyone from finding out who he really is. 

Along with the suspense of this novel there is also a bit of romance. Hayden and Riley have an instant attraction for each other. Which I’m happy about because in the first book of the series, Injustice For All, Hayden’s best friend Remington falls in love with FBI agent Rafe Baxter. I was looking forward to seeing if Hayden ever found the love of his life since I really liked his character in the first book. Not only is Riley faced with danger, but she is also confronted with her unforgiveness of the man who killed her parents. When he comes up for parole she and Rafe beg the parole board to not allow him parole. She still misses her parents and believes that he should rot in prison for the rest of his life. 

I think To Write A Wrong has the perfect blend of suspense, romance and depth of human feelings which made for a great read. The third book of the Justice Seekers series will focus on Maddie Baxter’s story. I will be looking forward to reading it when it comes out.

I downloaded my copy from NetGalley, this review is my honest opinion of the book.

  2. Yay Tina! You were able to comment! Thanks for stopping by! I have not read Shoo Fly Pie. I'll have to look it up :) I do love suspense.If you are really into suspense you should try some of Ted Dekker's books. I just read The Sanctuary...sequel to The Priest's Graveyard. My daughter loves the Patrick Bower series by Steven James, have you read any of his? I haven't had a chance yet. The titles are chess pieces, like Pawn, Bishop, Queen etc. She says they are intense. I have so many good books waiting for me to read!
