Hii! I’ve just finished reading one step too far by Tina Seskis, so thought i would do a quick review 🙂
An apparently happy marriage. A beautiful son. A lovely home.
Yet one morning Emily Coleman wakes up and walks right out of her life. What makes her do it? How will she survive? And, no matter how hard she tries, can she ever really say goodbye to her past?
Emily has a secret. No-one has ever guessed it. Will you?
Its mostly in the present view of Emily (or cat as she calls herself now) who runs away from something ‘unknown’ to us (the reader) to London. Every so often we get ‘flashes’ of the past, but from other people’s perspectives, such as Emily’s mum, Emily’s twin sister and on a couple of occasions Angels (someone she meets in London) past.
I don’t think it was either too fast paced or too slowly paced either (such creative describing here kirsty :/) it does keep you guessing what could of happened to make her run away, flashes from the past make you think that it’s maybe this or that, but to be honest I had no clue whatsoever right up until near the end when it was all revealed. And I was quite gobsmacked. If you have read or do read this book, let me know if you guess before its been revealed…
I’ve not read anything by Tina Seskis before, but she was able to describe and word it just the right amount, you feel for each of the characters and sometimes maybe in an opposite way as to which they’re perceived. She also has another book out called ‘When we were friends’ that I’m excited to start reading at some point!
Have you read ‘one step too far’? What were your thoughts?
