After reading Finding Emma, I couldn't wait to read the next part of the story. In Emma's Secret, Megan is slowly forced to see her young daughter's needs beyond that of her own fears, and to try to hear and deal with the rest of her family's hurts. The story is again, heart warming. I could not put it down. Steena Holmes, thank you for such an excellent read.

I enjoyed reading Finding Emma so I bought this because it got so many good reviews.I felt that this whole book could have been condensed in to a few chapters and tagged on to the end of the first book! It was boring and drawn out and very obvious the Author was just trying to fill the pages..If there was a quick way of doing it I would count how many times coffee and donuts were mentioned and would go as far as to say the book was centered around coffee and donuts instead of Emma\Emmie/Em. There was the coffee run in the morning, why would you not make your own coffee in the morning? Everyone in the book was either making coffee, drinking coffee, or holding a cup of coffee. The author even described on a couple of occasions HOW the person was holding the coffee and the warm feeling going through their fingers as the were holding the coffee! It well tell how boring the book was if the coffee and donuts took over my mind.

I read Finding Emma earlier this month and was thrilled to see there was a follow up story and waited eagerly to find out what happened to the little girl on her return home. Emma's secret doesn't disappoint, we learn more about Dottie & her state of mind in her final years, feel Jack's sorrow as he starts a new chapter all alone in life, Emma's pain at being separated from her beloved Papa and Megan, Peter, Hannah & Alexis' battle to come to terms with the new way of life they are faced with following the longed for return of their youngest family member. The jealousy, joy and guilt felt by siblings, love, relief & worry of parents rebuilding their family.
I've often wanted to know what happens next with these story lines and it was wonderful to be able to have the oppourtunity to see how the big changes in their lives affected each character. Not one character is neglected, the affects on each one come across so well that you actually feel their joy, sorrow, worry and hope as they adjust and learn to accept their past.
I would 100% recommend this book but read Finding Emma & Dear Jack first - you won't regret it!

I was really looking forward to Steena Homles sequel to the outstanding 'Finding Emma', I couldn't wait to read more about Jack and his relationship with Emmie, the little girl he'd been lead to believe was his granddaughter.

This book picks up a few months after the end of 'Finding Emma' whereby Emma is back with her family and they are all trying to move on from her disappearance. Her papa Jack is left alone following the death of his beloved Dottie and the loss of Emmie.

Again in this book I struggled a little with the lead character Megan, Emma's mother. She still comes across as quite self involved and a little unaware of the feelings of others. I found myself feeling real sympathy with her husband Peter, in whom she seemed to have very little faith and her best friend Laurie who seemed to have to constantly tiptoe around her friend.

Taking this aside though I loved in this book what I loved about the first - the relationship between Jack & Emmie and the emotion that Jack is going through. He is an exceptionally well written character, he evokes such emotion and you genuinely want things to work out for him. That Emma's father in this novel see's his good heart and the way in which he loves his daughter and makes her happy was lovely. I wanted more of this.

Dottie is still prevalent in the book through her journals and this ties it all back to book 1. It is a satisfying sequel but didn't feel like a conclusion, the way it ended suggested there might be more to come and I personally would love to read more about Jack & Emmie and so long as we can pick up with Megan being in the place she is at the end of the book I would like to read more about her also.

First off let me say that I normally read crime novels but came across Steena's book Finding Emma and I was hooked. I pre-ordered Emma's Secret and waited patiently for it to be released. What a fabulous book that truly touches you and makes you look at everyone's emotions and wonder how you would react in that situation. For anyone debating whether or not to download this book, don't hesitate. Steena Holmes you are now in my top 5 of favourite authors!!

I absolutely loved 'Finding Emma' I finished it in one sitting and when I saw the 'Emma's Secret' was soon to be published I pre ordered it straight away and I'm sorry to say I wished I hadn't. In my opinion I don't think it was necessary to follow the book up with this. I was expecting more twists and turns but it was the aftermath of which I was expecting more. Obviously it touches on a deeply emotional and horrific experience but for more a fiction I think more plotting was needed. Still an amazing writer.

I know that this is supposed to be all about family relationships, but the truth is, it all about cakes. Pies, muffins, doughnuts, buns. In almost every scene the characters are wolfing them down. It's a pleasant, undemanding, slightly sentimental feel-good story that can be read in one sitting. My main preoccupation when reading it, though, was that everyone, including the dogs, must be fat as houses, hyperactive and spotty. They are not just eating cakes, they are eating mega, over-the-top, throw everything in the sweet shop, cakes at every turn. My teeth hurt just to think about it.
