No-one has ever guessed her secret. Will you?

Tina Seskis's stunning debut One Step Too Far is an absolutely unputdownable story of secrets and heartbreak.




Review:

With tons of mystery, plenty of twists and an intriguing main character, One Step Too Far is great entertainment for fans of books which always keep you guessing.

I love books with twists in them, and One Step Too Far definitely has a lot of twists. From the first moment in the book, you’re wondering and left guessing about what has caused Emily to flee from her old life and then you’re transported to Cat’s chaotic life on the road to your discovery of what exactly has happened.

One Step Too Far was mysterious and compelling. The unpredictability made for an entertaining plot which kept me turning the pages. As the book switches back and forth in time, we gradually learn more about Cat and her motives and I can’t say I particularly liked her but I did find her story interesting.

The suspense in this book was high – I really did not know what to expect next and the author did a great job of keeping the secret under wraps. I did have a slight issue with the plot though and that was that at times it felt too far-fetched and unrealistic. This book combined a lot of issues and I thought maybe it would have been best served cutting out a few of these to make the story feel more real.

Despite this, One Step Too Far was completely enthralling and a great debut novel. There was never a dull moment and the book showcased a fantastically mysterious plot which is well worth a read.
