I was introduced to the Kathleen Turner series in May of 2012. I had not read any romantic suspense before and the first two books were quite enjoyable. Getting to know Kathleen, Blane and Kade as well as a host of secondary characters was a fun ride along with the crazy twisty suspenseful, often times over the top storyline.

The story is thrilling in a murder mystery kind of way and keeps the reader guessing. The situations Kathleen finds herself in are creative and I love the way she can

Blane Kirk, former Navy SEAL, current high-powered lawyer.
Dark blonde hair, green eyes.

Kade Dennon, former FBI agent, current assassin.
Dark hair, blue eyes

Blane and Kade, half-brothers.

Kathleen Turner, former runner for the law firm of Kirk and Trent, current investigator.

This is the third book in the Kathleen Turner series and contains another gripping story combined with the romantic relationship between Kathleen and Blane. And the almost-romantic relationship between Kathleen and Kade.

Cocktails and Books
I'm not sure if I can write a review that will do this book justice. I've waited a week to write the review because I was so stunned by the events that happened in TURNING POINT. So stunned, that a week later I still want to run around the room waving my hands in the air and scream "Did that really just happen???" Sort of like this.

As the title of the book suggests, this was definitely a turning point for Kathleen. Kathleen wants to become a good investigator. She wants to be an asset to the

Five bright, shining, golden stars. This has quickly (very quickly, just under three days) become one of my favorite series.

I know some people have issues with love triangles. If that is you, stay away. This series most DEFINITELY revolves around an intense love triangle. But it's one of the better ones I've ever read. Very well done.

His body blocked mine where I stood. Tipping my head back, I looked up at him. His eyes burned a path down my body.
"Fuck bullets," he rasped. "You're going to be the death of me."

Well, well, we are at that beautiful four solid star rating....but it's still not enough to be above a true 3.5. I'm not sure it will ever be above that, seeing as I hear it only becomes worse (The love traingle, the unbelievable action, the solution to aforementioned triangle..). But, as I've

Book Three of this Five book series. Enjoyed it. Did not hit the FIVE star mark for me. One of the reasons is that I really found one or five of the situations Kathleen found herself in to be a bit implausible. I know it is fiction, but c’mon.

Kade, what can I say? Still love him. Even when he is out of his leather and jeans….

Whereas Blane always wore cologne,
Kade rarely used the stuff

Blane, I like him but…. my heart beats faster for a bad boy in leather.

Turning Point was an emotional rollercoaster for me!

This book revolves around a case where Blane is defending a man accused of rape. His involvement in this case causes a lot of tension between Kat and Blane. Blane won't give Kat his reasons for taking the case and he keeps a lot of information from her in this book.

Also in this book, Kat is beginning her new job as an investigator with Kade at their law firm. She ends up investigating a case for one of the other partners that ends up being re

Well, that was another throughly entertaining installment. And, wow, that was a LOT if action. I'm almost afraid of what is going to happen to Kathleen in the next book, because I swear the ass-kickings she takes seems to double each book. I hope her job has medical insurance.

I must say, while i am happy to swallow a whole lot of crazy stuff because I really enjoy these books, the one thing that keeps happening that is starting to drive me nuts is how Kat manages to get seriously injured, but a

10++++ Stars (I LOVED!!!)

The third book in Tiffany Snow’s, Kathleen Turner series, did not disappoint. I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed this book.

I am ecstatic that there is going to be book #4 and I already loved the first chapter that was the preview in back of the book.

When I finished Turning Point, I immediately when back and read my favorite scenes. I did not want this book to end. I could not put this book down. It was such an amazing read. I cannot think of the proper adjec

3.5 stars

Things I’ve learned:

1. If you are an investigator in training you should totally put yourself in the line of fire and run off to be the hero all the time because you can handle it…..right? And even if you can’t some good looking man will be there to save you.

2. Don’t tell your boyfriend important details of your life like someone trying to blackmail you, his brother hitting on you, your cousin is in town etc. But definitely demand he tell you everything and be mad when he doesn’t.

Seriously, these books are getting better and better, the tension is building BIG TIME!!! And Kathleen finds herself nipple deep in some BAD SHIT, like Human Trafficking and rape cases. And the life she has come to know is now on the line. And she may not live through it this time...

Her relationship with Blane finally taking seed... her feelings towards him stronger than ever. But Kade has been pressing his adva

How did she know that was my nickname for Kade? Sweet baby Jesus this book put me through the wringer, I could not stop reading it last night. I think my eyes are all red and I'm kind of book drunk from power reading in the middle of the night and all I can think about is how I want to start book 4!

What can I say, I love this series!! With each book it just keeps getting better and I am so excited because this doesn’t always happen in a series. Sometimes the story starts to fall flat and I am left feeling that it is time to move on but that is definitely not the case here. Tiffany Snow has done an amazing job at keeping everything fresh by adding in a new character, a little more tension and more twists and turns that will keep you completely engaged in the

It has to be a true sign of a good book when I go to update my read status on gr and realise I started this book so quickly I forgot to add it.

I know!!!!

Damn these books are addictive. Each is complete in itself, but the story of Kat, Kade and Blane and their multiple dices with death make for a riveting read, thanks to the sexual tension. This one was my favourite so far. Straight onto the next.
Well, to make a long story short, it goes something like this...

Kathleen is sort of kind of dating Blane because he broke her heart, but you know, he's Blane so she can't stay away. She's also getting trained to be a spy investigator by Kade. Sexual tension ensues because they always seem to find themselves in these "situations" where one, or both of them, are half naked.


Not that I'm complaining though.

Kathleen finds herself in a bad situation. Someone tries to kill her. Mostly because of Blane.
WHAT DO I SAY?? This was ridiculously fantastic!!!

I'm already into book #4 so I won't prolong what I want to say. I'll just list my observations:

--Kathleen is kick-ass! Yes, she has faults. Particularly when it comes to being upfront about things having to do with her and Blane. She tries too hard to be independently fierce and it always lands her in trouble. But I'll give an E for effort. She also needs to be a bit more honest with herself.

--A love triangle isn't my favorite thing. But this one

These books are so much like crack to me, I can no longer tell if they are actually any good. MOAR PLEASE.

I do find it a bit irritating that practically every single man portrayed up to this point either wants to fuck/rape Kathleen, or kill her. That seems a bit drastic to me... I'd be ok with that being toned down a bit, or for it to stop happening altogether.

“Whenever you tell a story, there’s always a twist, a turning point, a point when the story changes.”
Shey Stahl from “Waiting for You”)

For Kathleen Turner, this is the turning point in her story. At the end of the third book, readers are left at a turning point in this series for all three main characters. The popular “triangle” storyline has kept readers breathless wondering which brother will indeed bring Kathleen her happy-ever-after.

To start off with, I am a follower of this series. I have loved it from the beginning. I am also a firm Team Kade member. I don’t know if I can ever forgive Blane for Kandi. I know he was supposedly doing it to keep Kat safe, but I don’t buy it. I think he took it entirely too far. He just keeps hurting her and she keeps taking him back. Now, with that off my chest…

I had preordered Turning Point and forgotten about it until it magically appeared on my kindle fire. It made my day. This book is so

This series just keeps getting better and better! And this one is the most dramatic yet, and the steamiest!

Kade is now training Kathleen to be a competent investigator. Which means he’s jogging with her in the morning, taking her to self defense classes etc. All translating to, he’s spending a lot of time with her :)

Blane is defending a guy accused of rape. Kathleen who was almost raped herself is not too happy about Blane’s new assignmen
Whew. What a ride!

Turning Point was such a great read! Full of action, suspense, and Kade, of course.

Ahem. Moving on now.

Turning Point begins a little while after Turn To Me: Kathleen and Blane are still broken up, and Kade, well, he just sits there being awesome while he trains Kathleen. So, you get the gist. Blane is struggling for Kathleen's affections and Kade is trying to be the better person and back off. Yeah. As if.

I think this is one of the books that you just have to read, otherwise I'

So this is the third installment in the Kathleen Turner series. And OMG it was so good!

So much happened. As usual like in the prior books in the series, this installment had a bit of everything lots of action, suspense, funny parts, steaminess, but in this one the development of a love triangle is more noticeable .

Yeah, if you are not a fan of love triangles, you should probably stay away from this series. Because by the end of this book a pretty messy love triangle is in the

This is one of the best series I have read! Two alpha males, a naive heroine but one with brains and guts.. If you aren't giving this series a chance because you think it is only a murder mystery please reconsider. It does have some of those elements but also romance and everything else that we all love in our favorites! X
