One Step Too Far / Tina Serkis / 285 pages
What would cause a mother and wife to up and leave her family one day without seemingly any warning? That's question readers are trying to answer in this psychological thriller. Emily Coleman has become Cat Brown and has run away to escape some dark devastation in her past and start a new life in London. The chapters alternate between a first person narrative of Cat's story to flashbacks of other characters, including Cat as Emily, that help fill in the background of what has brought Cat to this point. The reader will never see the ultimate twist coming which is as heart-wrenching as it is surprising. Tina Serkis weaves a story filled with flawed, realistic characters who the reader can't help but keep reading to discover more. This definitely a book that will keep you up at night in your desire to find out Cat's secret.
