Emily had a twin sister, Caroline Rebecca, who came as a completely unexpected surprise right after Catherine Emily's birth. The girls were never especially close as they grew up. Caroline, called Caz in adulthood, was forever breaking the rules and ended up in rehab many times. She seemed intent on ruining her own life and anyone else's who might get in her way.

On a never to be forgotten afternoon, Caz showed up at Emily's front door, offering to join Emily and her son Daniel on their walk to the park. Tragedy struck and life became a living nightmare for Emily, left unable to accept what happened.

Emily's husband Ben is dumbstruck when Emily disappears. While Emily is able to make a new life for herself, Ben is tormented by what could have happened to his wife. Sure, he had a few little one-night stands, but they meant nothing. That couldn't be why Emily left him without a word. Could it?

Emily makes her mark in the world but never can reconcile her past. Blaming herself for something. What can it be? A secret seems to hide behind the scenes as Emily goes about her life. She's generally happy with her daily routine, but something lingers that taints anything good in her life.

Do you have the answer? I figured it out, but only by the very last pages. If One Step Too Far is any indication of author Tina Seskis's talent, we shall be seeing more from her again soon.
