I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
Two sisters go missing.
Only one returns.
Getting people to believe you is easy.
If you tell them what they want to hear.
When my sister and I disappeared three years ago,
they found Emma’s car at the beach. Some people believed she had gone there to find a party or meet a friend who
never showed. They believed that she’d gone for a swim.
They believed that she’d drowned. Maybe by accident. Maybe a suicide.
Everyone believed Emma was dead.
As for me, well – now I’m back to tell our story.
You’ll have to see if you believe it.
What I most enjoyed about this book was the psychological aspect and the exploration of narcissistic personality disorder. As I'm sure I've mentioned before, I find psychology fascinating and love reading about anything to do with it, so this book was a real treat for me as it gave lots of detail and a real insight into the condition which inspired me to do more research after I had finished the book.
Due to my love of psychology, I assumed I would prefer the perspective of the forensic psychologist, Dr Abigail Winter, however I discovered that I really liked Cass's perspective and found it the most gripping as I enjoyed how she told the story.
The pace is a good fit for the book and I liked the writing style, it drew me in at the start and for the most part, it kept me engaged, although I must admit I did get a little lost occasionally in the middle.
I thought the ending was brilliant. I can't really go into much detail for fear of giving spoilers, all I can really say is that for me, it was perfect.
I also have to quickly mention the cover which I'm completely obsessed with. In my opinion it's worth buying for the cover alone!
Overall, I'm giving Emma in the Night 4 out of 5. It was gripping, twisty and really enjoyable.
