Writing All Wrongs (A Books by the Bay Mystery) by Ellery Adams

Writing All Wrongs

Reviewed by Caryn St. Clair

Writing All Wrongs begins right after the previous book in the series, Lethal Letters. Olivia and Chief Rawlings are married but have yet to take a honeymoon. They decide to enjoy a short honeymoon on Palmetto Island before the rest of the Bayside Writers join them for the Legends of Coastal Carolina Festival. The festival, an annual event, is special this year because Silas Black, a television producer who brings legends to life on the small screen, is the main speaker at the festival. He plans a show about the famous pirates along the Carolina coast. The problem is, Silas has a history of taking liberties with the historical figures and the actual facts of the legends he brings to the screen, so not everyone on the island is thrilled that he is coming. If that was not enough to put a damper on the festival, the environmentalists are up in arms because of a proposed land development project which would cut deeply into a nature preserve.

It should come as no surprise to readers that although they were determined to have a good time regardless of the distractions, Olivia and Rawlings soon find themselves immersed in the conflicts. As the week progresses, they discover that the program is not the only reason for Silas to be on the island and Olivia is shocked to find out about some long buried secrets involving her father which are also tied to Silas.

Adams has done an excellent job of plotting this book out. Readers need to pay close attention to even the seemingly most minor points to follow the twisted plot threads. Also, there are a couple of rather shocking turns towards the end of the book.

At the end of the book, Adams has included a page detailing information about the real island that is used as “Palmetto Island “ in this book . Also, one of the key plot points has to do with a pirate artifact and the real information on that is also included.

Writing All Wrongs is the seventh book in the Books by the Bay series.
