We’ve been on vacation over the last week and while I love sitting on the beach and just relaxing, for me finding the perfect vacation book that combines intrigue, suspense and an unexpected ending is a must. When we go on vacation, I abandon the television, toss aside the magazines and opt for a great book that I just can’t put down. It’s not unusual at all for me to get so captured in a story that I spend endless hours wanting to find out what happened. So often, the endings of the books I read are predictable and leave me feeling that perhaps I’m smarter than the author but on our most recent vacation, I was truly shocked and intrigued with Wendy Walker’s “Emma In The Night”. Available in hardback format or as a download on Bookshout.com, from first page to last, it was a twisty, unexpected mystery that lead up to an ending that even I, a most seasoned reader, never saw coming!
While I of course am not about to give away the jaw-dropping ending of “Emma In The Night” (pre-order your copy HERE or for your FREE download code on Bookshout.com simply email email@example.com and put EMMA in the subject line *available while supplies last), I will say that Wendy Walker takes her readers on a journey through the mind of a teenage girl, Cass, who disappeared from her troubled mother’s home along with her sister one summer night. When Cass suddenly shows up on her mother’s doorstep three years later, it’s up to her to tell the story of what happened to her and her sister, Emma. As her story unfolds, psychologist Dr. Abby Winter is left to unravel what is real, what is false and what happened to Emma.
As the story is told both through Cass’s and Abby’s perspective, I was given an insider’s view into both the mind of a teenage girl who had been missing for three years and the doctor who had been haunted by the case since her disappearance. Many times in the book, I thought I had figured out where Emma was and what had happened, only to find out in the jaw-dropping final chapters that I couldn’t have been more wrong. While the book, at times, was dark, it was a real and gritty view of how those who raise us shape who we are and the impact that what really happens behind closed doors can have on our lives. While the relationship focus of the book was on Emma and Cass’s interactions with their mother, the addition of their estranged father as well as their step-father and step-brother added layer upon layer that left me wondering what really happened to Emma up until the very last minute.
I will say that up until the very last page, mysteries were introduced and solved and every twist and turn led to an unexpected ending that I won’t soon forget! Whether you need a beach read, a book that will grip you and keep you captivated for hours or just a new novel that will be added to your lists of favorites to read time and again, Wendy Walker’s “Emma In The Night” is a gripping tale that will capture your imagination, burrow deep in your mind and keep it’s intense grip on you until the very last page!
