“One Step Too Far,” by Tina Seskis


Not into sports, but still looking for a little adventure? Consider “One Step Too Far,” ($12.99), which looks like the perfect novel to read on a cold, winter’s day.

From the iBook Store:

An intricately plotted, thoroughly addictive thriller from a major new voice in suspense fiction—a mesmerizing and powerful novel that will keep you guessing to the very end

It’s funny how easy it is, when it really comes down to it, to get up from your life and begin a new one. All you need is enough money to start you off, and a resolve not to think about the people you’re leaving behind.”

A happy marriage. A beautiful family. A dream home. So what makes lawyer Emily Coleman—a woman who appears to have everything—get up one morning and walk right out of her life to start again as someone new?
