When Kathleen Turner, office runner for the prestigious Indianapolis law firm of Kirk & Trent, started dating the boss she knew the risks. Senior Partner Blane Kirk is known for being a notorious player - the Baskin Robbins of dating with a different flavor every month. Kathleen is the happiest she’s been in a long time, but she’s always known there was a termination date on her relationship with Blane. She just didn’t expect that termination to be her funeral. Blane’s current case is drawing heated debate and stirring the pot of public fury. A former Navy SEAL stands accused of the wrongful death of an American citizen during a military operation overseas. The case has far-reaching political and military implications. Someone with a lot of money, and even more clout, wants Blane to lose. As dead bodies of people connected to the defense start piling up, it becomes painfully obvious that disappearing witnesses and altered testimony are no longer enough for whoever is intent on guaranteeing the SEAL gets convicted. Kathleen and Kade, Blane’s brother and ex-FBI-agent-turned-assassin-for-hire, are on the trail of the killer. Unfortunately for Kathleen, he’s already moved for the end-game - by painting a target on her…and pulling the trigger.

the story is a bit frustrating until the half way mark then it picks up a bit. i'm not sure yet if i like tiffany snow's writing style. i must confess i started to doubt her ability to write a good female heroine storyline with all the absurdity and flaws on this story. although ms snow tries to portrait her as a strong character, there are a lot of deprecating moments and sometimes it feels like the only talent Kathleen has is the fact that she is beautiful, blond and sexy.
I gave the narration 3 stars because it wasn't anything special, but the Kathleen Turner book series has me hooked! It's got action, mystery, suspense, hot romance and great characters.
I am so pleased I found this series - Turn To Me continues on from the first book in the series No Turning Back. This series rates highly amongst the other books in this genre that I have read. It has all the elements that make a book a real page turner - one that keeps you up late and gives you something to look forward to.
I enjoyed the intrigue that was woven throughout the story. But at the same time I also found that I wanted to hit Kathleen over the head as she kept excusing Blane's behaviour but a the same time keeps Kade on the hook but at arms length. This is a love triangle that will only cause heartache.
I didn't have a favourite scene - the whole book was fast moving, full of suspense and with a wholesome dollop of romance.
I did find myself smirking at parts of this book - many due I think to Angela Dawes fabulous narration. Tiffany Snow has written this book with a huge amount of first person dialogue and this has given the narrator a chance to give Kathleen Turner a very unique character.
I guess my only comment is that because this is a series it can become frustrating waiting for the next book - unfortunately we now live in a society that expects instant gratification - so I guess I will just have to learn to be patient.
The book lingers too much describing the affairs between Kathleen and the brothers. I also found the behavior of Kathleen quite unrealistic and unbelievable, which really let me down for the whole story. Generally, it seems like things are happening too fast, without too much reasoning behind it. It felt more like an action book.
It is not a mystery book.
It was OK.
If it was free. I really didn't like the heroine, who epitomized the saying "fools rush in". The narrator was fine.
Maybe a different series.
I knew this was romantic suspense, but I prefer a stronger heroine. Less emphasis on sex and more on investigation, and personal resourcefulness.
