Review: One Step Too Far By: Tina Seskis

One Step Too FarOne Step Too Far by Tina Seskis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give this more 3.5 but rounded up.

The book goes back and forth, present and past, presenting a deeper look into the main character, Catherine Emily Brown, and her relationship with those around her and their lives - beginning with her decision to leave. Cat, as she is now being called, doesn't just leave, she removes herself from her husband, Ben Coleman and Simon's life. How could she leave them? Her ring in a sink at some terminal? Making a new life sharing a flat with strangers in London?
Slowly as Cat begins a new life, the old one is revealed. As Cat develops alcohol and drug problem, she climbs the ladder at work, but the spiral downward seems endless - or that is what it appears.
What are the secrets locked up inside of her? Those around? In one moment they all will crash and be revealed.

It's hard to like such a main character or even understand her, but after the revelation I found myself soften a bit, found certain aspects explainable even understandable. The ending was a bit rushed through but it gave everyone and everything a finale. Certain aspects were a bit disjointed, but considering that I read an ARC I am sure this is forgivable.
