SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:
In Angola State Penitentiary, a man is serving time for a crime he didn’t commit. Riley Baxter is an eager reporter desperate for a story to make a name for herself. When she stumbles upon the daughter of the incarcerated man, Riley sees a little too much of herself in the teen, and vows to help prove her father’s innocence.
At the same time, Hayden Simpson has his hands full with keeping his little sister in line, worrying about his job as Police Commissioner, and dealing with his past emotional baggage. The last thing he needs is someone blowing the lid off his emotional bucket. But when Riley Baxter storms into his life, struggling to understand why God would let bad things happen to good people, Hayden has no choice but to follow his heart.
Now, Riley and Hayden must work together to uncover the truth of the past . . . before someone shuts Riley up for good.

AND NOW...THE FIRST CHAPTER:
My take on this book:
"To Write A Wrong" is the second book in the Justice series and I really wish I would have had the opportunity to read the first one. Not because the author doesn't give enough information for this one to stand alone, instead I found the characters interesting and making me certain the first book would have been great.
The prologue really drew me in, a simple robbery gone wrong, how could I not be hooked, needing to know what would happen. From then though it took me a bit to learn who and what the characters were all about, but once I did though the story became a real page turner. The character of Riley Spartz really came to life in the pages of the book. I really felt for the Wilson children, especially Jasmine. I could easily understand her anger, and why she wanted Riley's help, in proving that her father was an innocent man. As Riley gets closer to the truth she winds up in danger herself. Overall, a real page turner that makes me want to go back and read the first book titled "Injustice For All." Recommended!
