About the Book:
From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a thriller about two missing sisters, a twisted family, and what happens when one girl comes back...

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.

About the Author: Wendy Walker is a former attorney and investment banker in Fairfield County, Connecticut who began writing while at home raising her three sons.

The paperback will be released July 18, 2017, followed by her second thriller, Emma In The Night, on August 8. 

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: The story sucked you in.

Check out author's other books or related books? I have not.

Recommend this book? Maybe. Probably not.

Notes and Opinions: This story was a great wind up and a terrible ending. I HATED the ending. I felt like a wasted the time reading the whole book because of the ending. While the ending made sense, it made me feel icky and sick. The story was very consuming to read because it drew you in very well. I was unimpressed with Dr. Winters though. The ending ruined the whole book for me, however. It is a great lesson on narcissism if you don't know about it, however. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Narcissism is a real disorder and it is the main issue in this book. It has kidnapping and murder in it, as well as, an unloving mother.
