Emma in the Night

Summary: 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.

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I read Wendy’s debut, All Is Not Forgotten, and when I saw this book- I knew I had to request it. I also was lucky enough to get to meet Wendy Walker and get a signed copy of Emma in the Night at Book Expo this year!


What I liked:

The cover.

How quick-witted Cass is. She’s telling this tale and she’s going to tell it to make sure that Emma is found.

The secrets. Listen, this family ain’t no Norman Rockwell type of family. Punishments are dealt out in ways that will make normal families cringe, moves and counter-moves are happening all the time, sibling rivalry is encouraged, and the house is a-buzz with all sorts of tension.


Bottom line: This book is getting the buzz and it’s worth reading.

    I loved this one – best thriller I’ve read since Gone Girl! Kept going back and forth with all the possible characters who could be narcissists.
