With an unpredictable plot and unreliable narrator, this twisty psychological suspense story will keep readers guessing until the end. Suggested by Jocelyn R.

First book by Wendy Walker and I loved it. Hard to put down and I did not guess the the ending which is unusual. Nor was it an out of the blue ending that made no sense. Really great read!

Ohhhh, this was a good psychological drama. A mean, manipulative mother with narcissistic personality disorder. A daughter who has watched and learned how her mother operates and devises a plan to turn the tables on her. The daughter is an unreliable narrator so you don't know the full story until the end. Couldn't put it down - read it in a day.

Interesting story delving into one of the lesser known personality disorders. Lots of twists and turns. Disappointing ending.

This was my first book From author Wendy Walker. While browsing Netgalley I came across Emma In The Night. I was immediately drawn to the cover art. Clicking the cover I read the description and knew I had to read it. It sounded intriguing. I wasn't disappointed.

Cass return home after vanishing years ago with her sister, Emma. Cass is all alone. The questions begin. Where is Emma? What happened? Where have the girls been this entire time?

Chapter by chapter Cass tells the story. Each revelation brings even more questions from her parents and from investigators. With each chapter we learn more about the secrets to the girls' past. Not everything in this well-to-do family is how it seemed to the outside world. Right away, FBI agent and forensic psychologist Abby Winter can see through Cass' story and pokes holes in it.

This story is well written. The plot twists come a the perfect time and kept me interested and engaged throughout the entire book. The ending was not something I imagined or saw coming. A beautifully disturbing read!

This is a solid 5 star read for me! I look forward to reading Wendy Walker's other books, as they have already been added to my TBR pile!

You can get your ebook, hardcover or paperback copy of Emma In The Night now! While you are there, check out the author's other books.

Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for allowing me a free copy to read and review.

Happy Reading!

From Good Reads: "Walker has made a career of using psychological profiles to craft her thrillers. In her latest novel, Emma in the Night, she delves into narcissism in this tale of two sisters who vanish and, years later, only one returns."
