Review: Wrong Question, Right Answer

Wrong Question, Right AnswerWrong Question, Right Answer by Elle Casey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Wrong Question, Right Answer is the third book in Elle Casey‘s Bourbon Street Boys series. It stars Toni, the resident prickly and tough lady of the BSB.

I read and enjoyed the previous two books in this series, and Toni was always a curiosity with a dark past that involved jail time.

Though Lucky is never a viewpoint character, we also learn more about how he is handling moving past his sister’s death (which was touched on in book two). The overarching challenge they endure is predictable following their alcohol infused encounter at the beginning of the book.
