Emma in the Night 😥 Book Review


Written by Thelonia

Three years ago, teenage sisters Emma and Cass went missing. Now, Cass has returned to her childhood home – and the story she’s telling about where she and Emma have been is one filled with intrigue and salacious details – but how much of it is true?

Emma in the Night tells its story through two characters: Cass, as she recounts her ordeal as she and Emma were held captive on an island with Emma’s secret baby, and Dr. Abby Winters, an FBI forensic psychiatrist who talks to Cass to piece together what happened, and find Emma and her baby and bring them home.

If you're looking for a good thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat while still delivering a lot of information and at the same time, none at all, Emma in the Night will definitely enthrall.

If I had one complaint about the book, it is that the narrators are very obviously either lying to you or not giving you the whole truth throughout basically 90% of the story, which can be annoying for particularly impatient readers. I definitely know there were parts where I found myself yelling (internally, since I was usually on the subway and random screaming, while not uncommon in the New York public transportation system, is still viewed upon unfavorably) at the narrator to just tell us what actually happened.

But then again, where's the fun in that?

I would highly recommend Emma in the Night if you're looking for a good, clean thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat (and yelling), and wrap things up in a satisfying manner. In the meantime, I may need to stay away from Thrillers for a bit - Emma in the Night goes a long way to cover all the heart-pounding suspense I need for now.

Emma in the Night is out now and is available at all major book sellers.
