Emma Averell has always worried that she’ll become detached from reality when she turns 40 and hurt her family—just as her mother did. Her birthday is approaching, and Emma is having terrible insomnia and losing time during the day, two symptoms her mother also experienced before the incident that destroyed their family. Her marriage is going through a tough patch, a client is harassing her, and her estranged sister Phoebe is unexpectedly in town. The only bright spot in this dark time is her new friendship with Caroline, a nurse who found Emma’s lost wallet and tracked her down to return it. But Emma still struggles under the weight of her fears that she’s about to lose her mind forever. Pinborough (Behind Her Eyes) plays around with some fun ideas in this lightly supernatural thriller, even if the resolution doesn’t quite stick the landing. Sarah Durham provides strong narration.
VERDICT Fans of the author and supernatural thrillers will enjoy.
