No Turning Back: Kathleen Turner, Book 1 | [Tiffany Snow]

No Turning Back: Kathleen Turner, Book 1

It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from her neighbor Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood. Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend.

Publisher's Summary

Kathleen Turner has goals. She moved to Indianapolis to start seeing to them, but things aren’t going quite as well as she’d hoped. She’s a runner for a high-powered law firm in town, not the most prestigious of positions, but it and her part-time bartender gig at least pays the bills. And one of the senior partners is a dreamboat in that obscenely rich, disturbingly good looking, slightly snobbish sort of way.

It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from her neighbor Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood.

Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend. It’s the opening gambit in a web of murder, deceit, conspiracy, and fraud that stretches to the law firm for which Kathleen works. Maybe to the very office that Blane Kirk commands.

And Kathleen Turner, law office runner, can trust no one if she wants to survive.

    "Disappointing"

    This book didn't live up to my expectations. I rarely guess the endings of detective novels. For some reason I just never manage to connect the dots before the protagonist does, and I like it that way. So when I read, or listen to, a novel and stay three or four steps ahead of the main character, it's not only annoying; it's a red flag that the book isn't very well done. Even though Kathleen was a bit dense, I still liked her. Most of the other characters were bland, with the exception of C.J..

    Overall, it wasn't much of a mystery and it definitely wasn't memorable. It only earned 3-stars because I loved Angela Dawe's performance.

    "Kathleen Turner you rock!"
    If you could sum up No Turning Back in three words, what would they be?

    No way you can sum this book up in three words. It was fast paced, thrilling, full of suspense, moments of humor and some hot romance. Not to mention two gorgeous men and a very sassy leading lady.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    At the beginning I thought I had worked out what was going on but the plot had so many twists and turns that it soon became obvious that I had no idea.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    Angela Dawe is one of my favourite narrators and this book would be one of her best. Her characterisation of Kathleen Turner was amazing - I felt like I was part of the book and part of the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't have an extreme reaction to the book but I really enjoyed both the suspense and the humor and I think this was due both to Tiffany Snow's excellent writing and Angela Dawe's expressive narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I was looking out for a new author and series to follow and Tiffany Snow fits the bill very nicely.

    "I wish Kathleen was a bit tougher"

    These books have promise, but I don't know if I'm 100% sold. The mystery was interesting enough, but I just wasn't sold on our heroine, Kathleen Turner. I know she's supposed to be young, but how anyone can be that naive, I have no idea. She blindly trusted everyone from the many men trying to get into her pants to her random neighborhood. And she was so hell bent on getting justice for her murder neighbor. I know she's your friend and all, but seriously, you are going to risk your life to find out who killed her? That type of loyalty is usually reserved for someone you know more than a couple of months and had a few cups of coffee with. She just made so many dumb mistakes and most of what she accomplished was from blind luck as opposed to any real intelligence or skill. And she was constantly being saved by someone else. I mean, constantly. I like my heroes (men or women) to be a little more self-sufficient. I had high hopes for this cop's daughter, but overall, she disappointed me, and after a while, the book started to feel a little long with her repeated antics.

    I think I'll read one more book in the series to see if things improve, because they do have potential. But if the next one is anything like the first, then I think it'll be the last.

    Audiobook review: The narrator's voice was semi-robotic. It was weird because her reading of the dialogue was pretty decent. With the exception of the men's voices, I thought she did a pretty good job. But reading everything else, oh my...

    I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha

    "Dissapointing"
    What disappointed you about No Turning Back?

    Way too much explilcit sexual exlanations as book goes on. Should have been called a romance novel..


    What could Tiffany Snow have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not start out leading sudience to think one way & then switch it around. Most of the main characters fell into this trap. first your a bad guy, then your not. First you are a plain Jane & then your not.


    What three words best describe Angela Dawe’s voice?

    Up, down & sideways


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disapointment

    "Grating voice"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As a book to read, yes. As a book on tape, no. The story is fine, but not the narration.


    What didn’t you like about Angela Dawe’s performance?

    Her inflection was irritating, for instance, she would emphasize the wrong word in a sentence. Also, if I set the volume for the main character's voice, I could not hear the other characters' voices. I was constantly having to change the volume depending on which character was speaking. Since I listen to my books as I travel, it was irritating.


    Do you think No Turning Back needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Would probably read a follow-up.

    "Remember to listen to the sample!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I only managed to listen to about 10 min. before the narration got so annoying, that I had to quit. I know that it's really just a matter of taste, but I learned my lesson to always listen to the sample before buying.

    "Had such potential"

    Author has talent, plot had potential, but main character was too flawed to be interesting or believable to me. Kathleen (24) was too cool (mature) when confronted by knife-welding criminals, chased by mobsters, kidnapped, beaten & shot and too naïve (immature) when dealing with men and co-workers and trusting new found friends. Also, narrator was strange, pausing & ending sentences like questions - very distracting.

    "Fun romantic escapism...."

    I would pigeon hole this as a romantic thriller, I have to come write out and say it, I enjoyed it, I didn't care about the ludicrous coincidences, it's written well with fun and flair, with entertaining narration by Angela Dawe.
    Life has not been too great for Kat, she's had to give up a lot in the past now it's time to get her life on track, even if that means being on the bottom of the corporate ladder. Kat works two jobs, a runner in a prestigious law firm, her boss being the witch from hell and a bar maid in the evening in a busy pub, where skimpy costumes seem obligatory.
    Throw in two alpha males, a murdered prostitute, electoral fraud and some very powerful enemies it becomes apparent that no-one is really telling her the truth.
    Stupidly naive she has a steep learning curve, but she's like a dog with a bone and no matter the cost will get to the bottom of her friends murder.
    Worth the credit to escape for a few hours.
