Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

From all accounts, Emily Coleman has the perfect marriage, a well-kept home, and a beautiful son. Why she would walk away from everything is beyond imagination.

Emily didn't have the easiest of childhoods with a twin sister who seemed to loathe her, a mother who didn't expect to have twins in the first place, and a father who loved his girls but had his own secrets. Once she leaves, the question remains - is she running from her husband, her sister, or something else entirely?

I have to say, it's not often that a book fools me, but One Step Too Far did. I had no idea why Emily left and when it's revealed, I had to go back and reread the opening to see if I missed a clue. The author is very clever, and I really liked that I couldn't guess Emily's mystery.

The writing style is different. It flows well between past and present. The pacing keeps you hooked, and the characters and settings really come to life. I could easily imagine myself wanting to grab cleaners and paint supplies once Emily settles in her new, albeit slightly grungy home.
