Emma in the Night

Synopsis via Goodreads: 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.

My Blurb: Any genre with a psychological touch is a go-to book for me. ‘Emma in the Night’ brought me to a ride that’s both thrilling and captivating, a book that lingers even after putting it down…

Sisters Emma and Cass disappeared without a trace some 3 years ago. Their family and the police believed that they have gone off together, until one day Cass came back without Emma. But Cass brought along with her a story to tell…

Dr. Abigail Winter, a criminal Psychologist was one among the investigators of their disappearance but she firmly believed that their mother, who Dr. Winter diagnosed as a Narcissist, has something to do with it. But for her, suspicion is one thing but proving it as another. So when Cass came back, she will do whatever it takes to find out what really happened.

The story told by Cass will change their lives forever…

Hit-and-Miss: This book is not something you read everyday. I could tell you all the details but I cannot ruin the experience for you. Instead, I will tell you why you should read this book:

1. The twists and turns of the story are crazyyyy. Details matter! At some point I thought I figured it all out but as soon as I turn the next page, another detail will appear and I am back to guessing what happens next! You have to carefully read each narration to catch some silver lining. It’s a roller coaster ride but I’m sure you will love the thrill!

2. In depth discussion of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). As a Psychology major, I think I am drawn to books that openly discuss these topics because I want to know more and learn more. I really loved how the author was able to discuss NPD in a way where readers can relate to. She made sure to incorporate it to the daily lives of the characters wherein you have to question your own behavior as well. It’s a great insight to what NPD does to people.

    3. Characterization. Since it is told in 2 POVs, one with Cass and one with Dr. Winter, there is a certain urgency in reading it because you want to know every angle…  I must admit, though, you will meet toxic characters and dysfunctional relationships BUT I think it was intended to be that way so we could see and understand the bigger picture.  The things that happened to Emma and Cass were abusive in nature but then again, read it with an open mind. I hated most of their family members and I wish them hell but how the author gave us justice was satisfying. Walker also did took that infamous “unreliable narrator” to a whole new level! It was so good that you just nod in agreement. Wish to give you more about them but you have to commend Wendy Walker for a well thought characters.

   4. Bitter-sweet Ending. Expect nothing less, people. The ending took us in a different direction. I thought I knew how it will all end but nothing is certain in this book. Until the last page, there is always something new and exciting to watch out for. You peel layer by layer by layer until you reach its core…

Verdict: One thing is for sure, I will read Wendy Walker’s debut novel and I will read her books as soon as they come out. This has been a thorough review! LOL but I enjoyed talking about it because obvs, I loved the book! If these reasons aren’t enough for you to pick it up, then maybe YOU ARE the problem. Ha kiddin’!


It’s a great psychological thriller for everyone! I read it within 24 hours because once I started to read, I couldn’t bear the thought of putting it down. I hope you’ll feel the same way. 😉
