To Right the Wrongs is the second book in the Erin Blake duology.
This review may contain spoilers.
Barely three weeks after catching the killer of Erin’s mother and their biology teacher, Erin and her crew are back, up to their elbows in forensics projects. But this time it’s with the full approval of their parents.
With Uncle Victor at the helm, Erin and her best friends, Spam and Lysa, are prepping a new classroom for CSI summer camp, where they will serve as camp counselors. Meanwhile, Erin’s super-hot new boyfriend, Journey, is graduating, just in time for him to take a position as Victor’s intern in the new CSI lab on campus. Journey and Victor are going to take another look at the evidence in the murder trial that sent Journey’s father to prison. The girls are under strict orders not to meddle with the murder case, but that’s easier said than done…
To Right the Wrongs captures how danger is really never too far from Erin and her friends. We once again get to see how Erin’s mind works, in that Erin is capable of finding clues and connecting the dots to things that would have otherwise been overlooked. Erin’s a teenager in her junior year of high school, but has already solved one murder, and now in To Right the Wrongs, she ends up helping her Uncle Victor and her boyfriend Journey, try to acquit Journey’s father from prison.
Along the way Erin and her friends end up indirectly helping another case.
When I first heard about To Right the Wrongs; the sequel to To Catch a Killer, I knew i had to get my hands on a copy ASAP. So I was incredibly happy and over the moon when I saw that my library had acquired a copy. I didn’t want to get my hopes up and have my expectations fall through, so I read To Right the Wrongs with very little expectations.
The expectations I started reading with were: 1., I wanted and hoped we would learn who Erin’s father is. 2., was that I hoped everything would turn out okay.
Before I even started reading To Right the Wrongs, I was pretty excited about this story. Not only is the cover absolutely gorgeous, but it reminds me of Autumn. I mean, how could it not? The whole cover is varying colours of orange.
When I started reading To Right the Wrongs I didn’t know what to expect.. Would we find out who Erin’s father really is? What would happen if she did? In To Catch a Killer we were clued in to who Erin’s father may be, but it wasn’t specifically talked about. So I’m glad that what happened regarding the mystery to whom Erin’s father may be was solved.
The story gets under way pretty quickly, and by page 100 I was already gripping the book because; if you’ve read To Catch a Killer, then you know how suspicious and how un-coincidental almost everything that happens around or to Erin actually is.
I liked seeing bits and pieces of romance in this story. What I enjoyed in this sequel was that the story seems to be more focused on Erin and her friends.
I didn’t think To Right the Wrongs would end up being a book that I enjoyed, (since I enjoyed reading To Catch a Killer so much) but I’m glad that I held on hoping that I would enjoy it — and I did.
Even if I had tried to predict a few things, To Right the Wrong has a few plot twists that I don’t think even I would have expected.
I’m very happy with how the story played out. There were a few moments here and there that felt like the writing was kind of forced, but that’s okay! Ultimately those scenes pushed the natural flow of the story going again.
I loved getting to read more of Erin’s story. I especially loved seeing her though process and how she found clues, and connected the dots to things that otherwise would have been overlooked.
I give To Right the Wrongs, 4 stars.
