Summer Reading Road Trip - Blog Tour Stop - Emma's Secret by Steena Holmes

About The Book:

When their five-year-old daughter, Emma, is miraculously found alive, Megan and Peter are overjoyed that their nightmare is finally over.

But Emma is vastly different from the sunny toddler who disappeared two years earlier. 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 She is quiet and withdrawn, and, worst of all, longs for the very people who kidnapped her.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 at the local donut shop leads to a secret that changes everything again. And Peter must decide between the happiness of his youngest daughter and the trust of his family.

My Thoughts:

A follow-up to Steena Holmes' "Finding Emma," "Emma's Secret" takes readers back into the drama that surrounded the disappearance of three-year old Emma and her recovery two years later.

Things have not gotten back to normal yet, but it's only been a couple of months since Emma was returned to her family.  While her mother Megan treads carefully around her youngest daughter,  not wanting to upset her, Emma's father Peter wants to just make his little girl happy, and if that means letting her see the man whose wife had kidnapped Emma, then so be it.  Thus the conflict on how to proceed with getting family life back to how it was - only life will never be "like it was," but can only be "how it is now."

Steena Holmes once again gives her readers a thoughtful and emotional story that will stay with them long after the book is finished.  I thought she did a great job winding up the story and bringing a good conclusion to this family drama.
