Summary:

Cat has buried her past, so deep that she hopes no one will ever unearth it. No one in her current life would know that, not too long ago, she was a completely different person, with a husband and child. What happened to Cat to make her this way, and how will she cope when everything she left behind comes back to haunt her?

Snapshot Review:

From the beginning of One Step Too Far, it’s clear that something is very wrong with the main character. We first know her as Emily, but then the text starts to jump between Cat, Emily’s new identity, and her past life, and these two couldn’t be more different. What exactly happened to Emily to damage her so? This is the hook that will keep readers intrigued throughout the novel. Does it deliver? Tolerably so. The ending is vague, but the explanation is certainly interesting. This book is more worth reading for the ride along the way, picking apart Emily’s character, than any end twists or turns. If your book club enjoys psychological thrillers, this is a good choice, as there will be strong opinions, and the main character is worth discussing.

  1. I’ve kind of seen mixed reviews about this one, but I think I’m still going to try it. Mostly before I get totally sick of psychological thrillers. LOL

  2. Looking forward to this one m

  3. This one fell a little flat for me. The ending seemed to rushed.

  4. Two points of view that are actually the same person? Definitely sounds interesting.
