Reading Level: Adult

The #1 international bestseller 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. . . .

One Step Too Far was intriguing but the ending... was something else! Shocker nonetheless. The story is divided into three parts using both present tense and flashbacks. Not to say much, but there is a twist and well it was pretty darn good.

We follow the story of Emily and her twin sister, Caroline. Emily has it all but one day she decides to walk out and leave it all behind. Strangely, one would be happy with her life, but why would she walk out? As the story unfolds, one begins to question the sanity of her sister. Is she at fault? What is this dark secret that made Emily depart from her family?

One Step Too Far is a page turner. One is drawn to the mystery and one cannot help but to start questioning and at the same time guessing the answers. As I mentioned before, there is a twist. Yet the way this story concluded… it was not appealing to me. In my honest opinion, it didn’t “fit”. Things could’ve been avoided by a simple conversation. However, such situations do happen in real life all because of lack of communications. Overall, I enjoyed the story and lover of mystery, like myself, will enjoy the story.
