The Candid Cover (Olivia & Lori)
I had very high hopes going into To Right the Wrongs by Sheryl Scarborough since I loved To Catch a Killer so much. This book is just as action-packed and twisty as the first, and Erin is still the same clever sleuth. The use of forensics in this series really adds originality, and I would definitely recommend it to those with an interest in this field.

Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.

If you like quick reading murder mysteries, To Right the Wrongs is a great book to pick up and enjoy on a nice rainy day. The title character, Erin Blake, is a smart, modern day detective who has a habit of getting mixed up in CSI-like cold cases. Her friends, Lysa and Spam, always along for the ride, as these precocious teens find a lot more to occupy their time than keeping a streak alive on social media.

I won this book in a goodreads drawing.

A teen sleuth, rocked by the events of the last book, goes away from the summer. Meets the usual oh-so-mysterious love interest, and finds herself trying to solve another mystery.

Nancy Drew was better.

Erin Blake and her friends are back solving crimes with their amateur forensic work. This time her uncle-maybe-father ex FBI guru Victor lives with Erin and her pseudo-mom Rachel. Cases include trying to free boyfriend Journey’s father, falsely convicted of murder and an a mysterious new guy in town.

This novel begins right after the events of To Catch A Killer, and was just as engrossing as its predecessor.

To Right The Wrongs begins three weeks after the first book. They’re back in the forensic scene, and with permission from their parents. The girls are asked to help with CSI camp at the school over the summer, but find themselves wrapped up in a cold case, one that hits close to home. They are asked not to meddle in the case, but that’s easier said than done, right?

My English review

Here is a series that I was curious to try and even if I did not read the first volume I was very intrigued to discover this second one. I must say now that I had a great time and I can not wait to read more (including the first volume!)

Erin, Lysa and Spam have investigations in their blood and even when they try to be wise and discreet, this is something they can not escape. Yet they know that they can not make waves, that they have to be careful, especially

To Right the Wrongs is the second installment in author Sheryl Scarborough's Erin Blake series. The story takes place shortly after the events of To Catch a Killer. Protagonist Erin Blake and her best friends Spam and Lysa are more popular than ever. You could say that they are celebrities for their part in solving not one mystery, but two. But, Erin isn't use to the spotlight, and actually prefers to remain somewhat anonymous as

I am obsessed with Erin Blake. She's a modern day Nancy Drew with a whole lot more sass and a keen talent for getting herself mixed up in CSI cold cases. I'm not much of a murder mystery lover, but I am addicted to Sheryl Scarborough's signature writing style, and I hope that she makes a dozen more of these!

Erin would love to become a professional forensic scientist and is thrilled that her uncle Victor's home to stay. She admires his work and the fact that he's turning the school lab into a professional lab that can also be used for forensics is a dream come true. Especially because Victor has asked Erin and her friends to help. There will be a CSI summer camp and Erin and her best friends Spam and Lysa will work as camp counselors. There's a lot of work that needs to be done and Erin enjoys every ...more

I'm torn between giving this book 3.5 stars or 4 stars. When I finished book one, To Catch a Killer, I REALLY wanted a sequel. I do love that To Right the Wrongs tied up some loose ends, but it also left a few things dangling. It makes me wonder if there will be a book three - and I'm totally okay with that! Despite some hiccups with this book, it was still really enjoyable and the ending had me like WHOA!! But also... totally called it!

It was ok, unlike in the first book I didn't guessed or expected who the killer was, but with that said I didn't really liked Erin in this one and all the action and interesting stuff happens in the last 5 chapters the rest of 42 chapters nothing really happens. I expected more for this.

A slow start quickly ramps up when Erin and her besties Lysa and Spam help set up a crime lab at their high school and investigate a mysterious boy who witnessed a car crash that almost took them out.

Along with Erin’s boyfriend Journey, who has a mystery of his own to solve, the trio discover clues that have stumped others for more than a decade.

So while a little on the disbelieving side, this was still an entertaining read with some interesting facts about forensic science, a little romance, t

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.

I loved the first book in this series but this one was just, a lot. The entire synopsis is about how they’re solving journey’s dad’s case yet I forgot that was even apart of the story most of the time. More and more mysteries kept getting added and I got confused. The characters also didn’t really solve anything at all... everything was coincidentally put together in the last 30 pages when all the sketchy people just admitted why they were being weird. I like some of the characters and I was int ...more

Did not finish. I read the first few chapters and then started skimming. I heard all the interesting parts are towards the end but I couldn’t make it that far. To Catch a Killer was so good but this one not so much. My 13 year old warned me...I should have listened to her. :(

A good read, but did not have intrigue and magic of the first book. A few things felt forced here in relation to the mystery and the personal dynamics; wish I'd stopped after the first book.

*I received this book from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own!*

To Right the Wrongs picks up after the events of To Catch A Killer and finds Erin more famous than ever but, still desperately trying to blend in. She's trying to readjust to her new life, especially after the unexpected events that took place during the previous book in the series and is still extremely interested in forensics! Things aren't that simple when you're Erin Blake though

I was pretty impressed with Sheryl Scarborough’s debut novel To Catch A Killer last year so when I was offered a chance to review the sequel I jumped on it. The first book was a great YA mystery and it read like a fun introduction to modern forensic techniques. Definitely something that would have interested my younger self – I mean really, it interested my adult self.

First, I want to say thank you to Jean Book Nerd for the opportunity to be a part of this book tour. I want to also thank Tor for the book so that I could review it. What follows is my honest opinion of the book. I wasn't compensated in any way. With that out of the way, let's get to the fun stuff.

To Right the Wrongs is one of those sequels that ups the ante from the first. In the first one, we meet Erin and her group of friends. The main mystery dealt with Erin's science teacher's murder and th

'To Right the Wrongs' is the second installment in a young adult mystery series that fans of the genre will definitely enjoy. Although you technically don't need to read the first book in the series before this one, I highly suggest that you do. There are already established relationships that were made in the first book and obviously a huge amount of events that went down. You might be a little confused in parts if you don't read them in order, but you can go either way. Again, I sugge

After Erin Blake's efforts To Catch a Killer, she regathers her strength and her people and they move forward. There is some deeper character development here, and the twists and turns in this second installment are mostly equal to those of the first. The plot draws you in and it is easy to follow the story. There were a couple of minor happenings that I felt might have been a little overworked, but it didn't drag the story for me, so it was okay.

First, I will confess to reading the first book in this series and really enjoying it. I hope to get my hands on this one because I wanted to see if it would measure up as a series.
