The #1 international bestseller 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.

One Step Too Far was such a frustrating book! I was totally suckered in by the summary that dared me to figure out Emily’s secret. But when I found out the secret, I was letdown. I expected something totally different and I felt cheated by the ending.

I liked the writing style and how we got scenes of Emily’s past and present. I preferred the scenes building up to Emily running away from her life. I kept trying to figure out what could’ve been so horrible to make her leave.

The plot was very slow. I felt like a lot of mundane stuff could’ve been left out to move the story along. Plus, there were too many points of view and the constant switching felt jarring and unnecessary.

There were also a lot of horrible characters in the book. Emily’s parents are horrible, Emily’s twin is horrible and for a lot of the book Emily is horrible as well. I liked Angel, the best friend Emily makes after she runs away. I liked that she seemed to found her happily ever after over the course of the novel. To be honest, I think I related and liked the “bad” twin Caroline the most.

I couldn’t guess the direction the novel was going so I liked that there were a few surprises to come. I found the novel’s end unsatisfying although loose ends were tied up. I just found some of the events and Emily’s reaction to them a little unbelievable. There was a lot of potential to the novel and I would check out more from the author.

Rating: 3/5 Stars
