Book Review: Emma In The Night

From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a thriller about two missing sisters, a twisted family, and what happens when one girl comes back...

One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn't add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister's return might just be the beginning of the crime.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about this book is Wow!.  This has to be one of the surprising thrillers that I have ever read.  There are so many twists and turns that take to a conclusion that I didn't and wouldn't have expected.   

I found both Cass and Abby to be extremely interesting characters and the pressures that they grew up with make them even more surprising.  Not only are there great, well fleshed out characters but the way that their story unfolds will keep you glued to the screen.  

I highly recommend EMMA IN THE NIGHT to any of my readers who enjoy a well written thriller with a surprising conclusion.  There is some violence and sex but nothing over the top so no need to worry about teenager enjoying this book.  

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
