Momma Says: 3 out 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐
Emma in the Night is well-written as far as story flow and plot, but it's written in both first and third person POV, which took some getting used to. It is certainly psychological and even a bit creepy, but I'm not sure I would consider it a thriller. For me, it was more Psychological Suspense. There are many adult situations and themes and the story is disturbing at times, so I would recommend 18+.
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.
