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.

    I don’t have any ghost stories, but I live in San Antonio which has many haunted places!

    I don’t have any ghost stories to share. I have been to the Fort Pickens, Seville Quarter and the Lighthouse that are supposed to be haunted here in Pensacola. Only one child returns…that sounds very interesting.

    I LOVE ghost stories– but I don’t think I have any good ones!! All mine came from SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK!! I’m reading CAMPFIRE by Shawn Sarles right now, and there’s TONS of good ones in there though!!

    I’ve stayed at a haunted hotel in England, but unfortunately I didn’t see anything ghostly.
