Series Sunday: Emma's Secret

(Finding Emma #2)

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is Emma's Secret, the second book in the Finding Emma series by Steena Holmes. The family's youngest child, Emma, has been returned home after being kidnapped two years ago. She's different from the happy toddler they remember. She barely remembers her parents and older sisters. She is quiet. Not only does she prefer to be called Emmie (the name given by her kidnappers) but she longs for the people who kidnapped her.

"My secret weighs on me too heavily. But there's no release, no way out." ~ pg. 162

Emma's Secret is the aftermath of a kidnapped child returned home. You would think it is all smiles and laughter. Instead Steena Holmes keeps it real and writes about the challenges the family face, the mistrust and how secrets can change everything...again. It was easy to read this sequel in one day. Nowadays it is the trend to leave readers hanging with an unnecessary cliffhanger. Thanks to the author, I finished the Finding Emma series feeling satisfied.
