I am always looking for a good buddy read so when Chelsea (from The Suspense Is Thrilling Me) and I discovered that we both had Emma in the Night, by Wendy Walker, on our TBR lists, we decided to dive in and tackle this upcoming thriller. Instead of writing up our own individual reviews, we thought it would be fun to craft a sort of joint review that reads discussion style to change things up a bit! We took some general book discussion questions, answered them and we hope this format will give you an insight into what our discussions are like whenever we read a book together!
Before we get down to business, here is a synopsis of Emma in the Night.
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.
