Review: Emma's Secret by Steena Holmes

Emma's Secret by Steena Holmes

Publisher: Amazon
Pages: 235 
Format: book

Goodreads:  For two years, Megan, Peter, and their two older daughters, Alexis and Hannah, dream of nothing but being reunited with the family’s youngest child, Emma, who was kidnapped just before her third birthday. When Emma is miraculously found living with an elderly couple just miles from the family’s home, they are hopeful that her return will heal the wounds her disappearance created.

But Emma is vastly different from the sunny toddler they remember. She barely remembers her parents or her older sisters. She is quiet and withdrawn, and, worst of all, longs for the very people who kidnapped her.

Megan is consumed with bitterness, while Peter works later and later nights in the company of his gorgeous business partner. And in the middle of everything, Megan’s best friend has become suddenly distant and secretive.

Then a chance encounter in town leads to a secret that changes everything again for Emma. And Peter must decide between the happiness of his youngest daughter and the trust of his family.

Kritters Thoughts:  Before you read this review, STOP and pick up Finding Emma by Steena Holmes.

Ok.  Now proceed.  Emma's Secret picks up where the first ends and oh am I so thankful for this sequel.  It definitely lived up to the first book and I was very glad to find out what happened after Emma returned to her family.  Thankfully this author made the experience feel very real and showed what could be the truth when a kidnapping victim is returned to their former life.  

There is a major plot twist in the end that definitely went a way that I wanted it to.  I can definitely not reveal anything because it is very central to the book, but trust me that i think the author choose the right path for this character.

I am officially a Steena Holmes fan and am adding her to my authors to watch for!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
