“Tina Seskis’ twisted psychological thriller keeps readers guessing at Emily’s secrets until the end.” —Us Weekly

An apparently happy marriage. A beautiful family. A dream home. So what makes lawyer Emily Coleman—a woman who appears to have everything—get up one morning and walk right out of her life to start again as someone new?

Deliberately losing herself in London, Emily quickly transforms herself into Cat. Along with her new name, she finds a new home in a shared house in North London teeming with an odd assortment of flatmates, and a new job as a receptionist.

Soon Cat has buried any trace of her old self so well, no one knows how to find her. But she can’t bury the past—or her own painful memories. As the days turn to months, thoughts of all she’s left behind begin to consume her. She cannot outrun the ghosts that haunt her, no matter how hard she tries to elude them. And soon, she’ll have to face the truth of what she’s done—a shocking revelation that may push her one step too far. . . .

My thoughts about One Step Too Far ~~

From the very first chapter, we learn that Catherine, aka Emily, is running away from something; running away from her family and running away from the only life she knows. We don't know why she is running away and we spend the rest of the story learning how she reinvents herself and how she puts the past behind her.

The not knowing is what drew me into this story. I just had to find out what was so terrible that this woman would give up the man she loved and her treasured little boy as she tried to erase them from her life.

Along the way we met some great characters who become a part of Cat's new life. Some of them are good for her and good to her and then there are others who only bring her down. She quickly learns who she can trust. Cat is a twin and I thought the relationship between Cat and her sister was a very interesting part of the story. They are as different as night and day and the dynamics between them kept the story very interesting.

This was a great read and kept my attention throughout. Like I said, I had to find out what was so bad that Emily felt she had to leave her life and start a new one. And the twists at the end made the overall story very satisfying.

I received a copy of One Step Too Far from TLC Book Tours in exchange for my honest opinion.

  1. This one sounds like a great suspense novel! Thanks for the review!

  2. The now knowing is what what would drive me as well - I simply HAVE to know what would drive her to do what she did.

    Thanks for being a part of the tour!

  3. This sounds good, leaving it all behind and the suspense on finding out why, I'm intrigued.

  4. I would have to keep turning pages frantically for the same reason - I just HAVE to know what compelled her!
