Publisher's Summary

The number-one international best seller reminiscent of After I'm Gone, Sister, Before I Go to Sleep and The Silent Wife--an intricately plotted, thoroughly addictive thriller that introduces a major new voice in suspense fiction; a mesmerizing and powerful novel that will keep you guessing to the very end.

No one has ever guessed Emily's secret.

Will you?

A happy marriage. A beautiful family. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life, to start again as someone new?

Now Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel. Cat's 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 memories.

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...

Didn't See That Coming....

Excellent debut novel by Tina Seskis. I myself did not see the ending coming. Some may not like the device used for this, but i loved it. I won't elaborate further as to not spoil, but i thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Excellent narration as well.

Great story

This one was really gripping, with some clever twists that took me, a seasoned writer, by surprise. I love it when that happens!

Worth it - GETS better with the END

I was mildly frustrated in beginning to middle (drawn out) and then picked up in middle and last 1/3 was a home run and worth the wait. And the end even made the slow parts worth the wait! Great narration.

Must read!!

This was a book that I found difficult to follow in the beginning. It kept switching around- going back to the past then present. But once I got into it I couldn't stop! I wanted to listen to it all the time. Very enjoyable and all of the characters were well-developed and likable people.

Perfect and gripping.

This book is by far my favorite read of the last 12 months. I so wish she had written more in english for I would read every single one of her works.
It was very difficult to put this book down, as mysteries and fascinating twists unfold with intriguing and delicious timing.
It ended all to soon but what a great ending!
Thank you,
Angela B

Frustrating

What would have made One Step Too Far better?

You have to wade through thoroughly unlikable characters for 10 hours with the author referring to an event that frames the whole story- without saying what it was. Finally, when she's about to disclose it, I don't care any more.

Tear-jerker

Based on the reviews I read, I was eager to see how the story would unfold. It is true, the beginning is a bit slow. I was not prepared for the dramatic, emotional ending. So, you have been warned. I wish stories like this came with a disclaimer. Something like, "Warning: if you have had children in the past two years or you are currently pregnant, do not read unless prepared to cry your eyes out." The story-telling was amazing. I was really able to connect with each character. All in all, it was a good listen.

Decent read

I thought this book was pretty good. However I had a hard time staying entertained. This book was fairly slow and it was hard for me to stay engaged.
