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...

    "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!

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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

    "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.

    Story
    "Horribly Depressing from start to finish."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone looking to feel miserable or depressed.


    Has One Step Too Far turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has not. I found it to be very sad and depressing.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Elizabeth Knowelden and Paul Fox ?

    The author is good at writing, but chose such a horrible depressing thing to write about.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Well written, but so horrible and depressing and just makes you wish you could have that time wasted on reading this back and those images out of your mind.


    Any additional comments?

    Spoiler alert: I know that it's part of the big reveal of the book, but I feel like I should be warned when kids are harmed in books. I prefer not to read them and I felt like i wasn't given fair warning to avoid this book.

    Story
    "Disappointing . . . guessed the "twist" early on"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Tina Seskis again?

    Probably not, since the twist that other reviewers said was such a surprise, was something I guessed within the first hour of the audiobook. Through the next several hours, I kept imaging other interesting / shocking things that could have been great twists, and was really disappointed when none of those happened. Also, the whole story was too depressing, which doesn't bode well for any of the author's other books, and several events in the story that could have been interesting, were too quickly glossed over. I certainly won't be rushing to check out her other works.


    Any additional comments?

    I often listen to audiobooks while driving, and this one was often hard to hear over the road noise even with the volume all the way up. I had to keep re-listening to sections when I wasn't driving - which I wouldn't have minded as much if it had been a better book. I haven't had this problem with other audiobooks I've gotten from Audible, so it's probably the volume leveling on this specific book.
