One Step Too Far by Tina Seskis

Description from Goodreads:

An apparently happy marriage. A beautiful son. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life to start all over again? Has she had a breakdown? Was it to escape her dysfunctional family – especially her flawed twin sister Caroline who always seemed to hate her? And what is the date that looms, threatening to force her to confront her past? No-one has ever guessed her secret. Will you?

‘One Step Too Far’ was a gripping read right through to the end. I wasn’t too keen on the main character, Emily, to begin with, but I was intrigued about her history. As I read on I began to identify with her and think about what I might do if I needed to reinvent myself. The outline of the book gave me the impression that it would be a very sad, and perhaps hard to deal with, story. I actually found myself willing Emily on, hoping she could do well for herself and get over her tragedy. The twist was completely unexpected, and heartbreaking, but it made me identify more with the characters than I was first expecting. Some sensitive topics, but they were approached with respect and care. I look forward to her next book!

4/5 stars
