I read the excerpt of The Right Wrong Thing By Ellen Kirschman and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it – I loved the idea of having a hardcover book to read (I love ebooks but switching it up with actual books is AMAZING). This book sounded intriguing and just what I thought I needed to get my head out of my real life for a while.
About The Right Wrong Thing:
By: Ellen Kirschman
Officer Randy Spelling had always wanted to be a police officer, to follow in the footsteps of her brothers and her father. Not long after joining the force, she mistakenly shoots and kills Lakeisha Gibbs, a pregnant teenager. The community is outraged; Lakeisha’s family is vocal and vicious in their attacks against Spelling. Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and filled with remorse, Randy is desperate to apologize to the girl’s family. Everyone, including the police chief, warns her against this, but the young police officer will not be dissuaded. The results of her attempt are catastrophic. Dr. Dot Meyerhoff, police psychologist, plunges herself into the investigation, despite orders from the police chief to back off. Not only does the psychologist’s refusal to obey orders jeopardize her career, but her life as well, as she enlists unlikely allies and unconventional undercover work to expose the tangled net of Officer Spelling’s disastrous course.
First off I’d like to make it clear I am by no means a book reviewer per se. What I am is; a real life person that LOVES to read. I especially love books that will take my mind off into it’s on world. This is exactly what happened to me when reading The Right Wrong Thing By Ellen Kirschman. I received the book and when I had a moment to sit down and “take a look at it” I thought I would read a few pages and put it away until I had more time…. NOPE, wrong…. I was mesmerized and captured from the beginning.
If any of you have read much about my story or the tragedies that have come our way; you’ll know I’m a cop’s kid that is living with and overcoming PTSD from the events that unfolded. Ellen Kirschman wrote a fictional book hitting on the topic of police officers and PTSD that is so accurate and engaging that at times I thought it was a true life story. She writes with eloquence and finesse to make the book easy to read but also has so much insight she brings the real world into her book. Her writings really are relatable without bringing further trauma to a situation that could be sensitive for some people.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Right Wrong Thing and completely recommend this book to anyone seeking a mystery that isn’t fake. A thriller that keeps you captured and wanting more. When I was done reading the book I had to sit back and think; wow, Ellen Kirschman– thank you for the ride!
I won’t get into telling how the story line goes or how things end. I will tell you from start to finish I was sitting on the edge of my seat! There were a few times Ellen Kirschman let me catch my breath (thank goodness). The Right Wrong Thing is an outstanding and provoking read! I’m impressed and can’t wait to see what she will write next.
