One Step Too Far

by Tina Seskis

This book is going to be hard to review.  I've been thinking about it for days and still don't know quite what I think about it.

I like books that flit back and forth between time periods and characters, but this one bothered me.  I know that was the author's purpose and it added to the tension of what was happening in the main character's life.  Overall, the writing was good, as was the story.

I was tempted on a few occasions to set it aside, but I kept reading.  It was nice to have everything fit together and make sense in the end.  Overall, I just didn't love this book but I can't quite figure out why.  It would be a good one for a book club because there would be so much to discuss.

I would love to hear from others who have read One Step Too Far.  What are your opinions?  Can you put into words what I am failing miserably to do?  Or did you love it?

*I received a copy of One Step Too Far from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

I also downloaded this one, and haven't gotten to it yet. What you say about it makes me curious, and now I want to give it a go. I will have to read this one in short order, and then maybe we can talk about it. It sounds a little strange, but in a good way!
