MY REVIEW OF “EMMA IN THE NIGHT” BY Wendy Walker
 “Emma in the Night” by Wendy Walker is an extremely intense and intriguing mystery and thriller that will keep you on edge. I appreciate that the author discusses a Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and how it affects family relationships. It is also mentioned if the children of women with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder will develop the traits and symptoms of this.
The characters are described as complex, complicated, disturbed and dysfunctional. Most of the characters could be suspect to any inappropriate actions.
Two teenage sisters disappear, and there is evidence of the older one’s abandoned car by the water. It has been three years since the FBI and Police have investigated and there is no new information.
The younger sister suddenly appears after all this time. She claims she escaped and has to find the older sister, who is on an island.The FBI gets involved again. There are inconsistencies in her story, and the emotions in the surrounding family.
There are many twists and turns in this story, and the ending is not what I thought it would be. This was a dark, intense, captivating thriller and mystery and I would highly recommend this for book lovers of this genre. This is the first novel I have read by Wendy Walker and I look forward to reading more. I received this ARC from the publisher for my honest review.

  1. Hi, I’m also a teacher! (early childhood) and recently retired (yay). I didn’t like Emma in the Night as much as many of my friends did. I thought the first half was much better than the second half, but an interesting and troubling premise!
