After her promotion from law firm Runner to Investigator, Kathleen Turner is learning the ropes of her new job from none other than assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon, a situation her boyfriend, Blane Kirk, is none too happy about. But the lessons with Kathleen take a back seat when Kade becomes a target. Previously untouchable, his enemies now know of the chink in his armor - his brother’s girlfriend.
And Kade’s not the only thing coming between Kathleen and Blane. From Blane’s inexplicable defense of a man guilty of a horrible crime, to a mysterious stranger from Kathleen’s past, to Kathleen’s risky investigation into human traffickers, the obstacles mount against a relationship that’s just begun to find trust again. While Blane considers a job offer that would take him back to the front lines in the war on terror, Kathleen is determined to pursue her new career, with or without his approval. Unfortunately, her current case is far more dangerous than anyone knows. Someone close to Blane will go to extreme lengths to split them up, lengths that may prove worse than death for Kathleen. Kathleen, Blane and Kade must atone for the sins of the past and the present. The fallout will force Kathleen to a turning point...in her career, and her life.
Another great book in the Kathleen Turner series. I rarely feel compelled to read/listen to all the books in a series, one after the other. But that's not the case here. I'm hooked!

I find Angela Dawe's voice irritating like fingernails on a chalk board.
Audible classifies Turning Point as a modern detective novel. It is actually a contemporary romance novel.

Would you consider the audio edition of Turning Point to be better than the print version?
What did you like best about this story?
How could the performance have been better?
It was almost impossible to hear the audio when she was acting one of the brothers<br/><br/>Her voice got more and more annoying the more I listened. She only has 2 tones
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I wanted to read it all but I didn't want to listen to the audio too much because it was either hard to hear or very annoying

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Not on the edge of my seat
What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?
I like her reading, her expressions, connotations. The brothers are hard to hear, of course it only loaded the audio to page 8. That's the 2nd time that's happened. Then, I can't hear any of it. VERY IRKED
Did Turning Point inspire you to do anything?

Send it in audible form if you read this
well written, good story line and performance, but not for me. I just don't like two brothers fighting for same girl. thought this was last in series but was wrong. not going to read the rest
I had a hard time listening to the narrator in the beginning. One I got used to her it went a little better I will definitely continue the series
If you like romance and danger with a bit of sadness, you'll absolutely LOVE this series. Be sure to read the full series. Well, well worth the moderate cost or credit.
What made the experience of listening to Turning Point the most enjoyable?
Ok, I started with book 4 as that was Kades' story and it was yummy. However, these are NOT stand alone listens. The author ends the book with the start of the next book. Author does do some light reference to previous books making you think you must buy those. Frankly, you must love the 2 brothers, which I do, and A.D. male voices to start at book 1. I have read #4,#3, and I will have to listen to #2 & 1 before #5 . I purchased all 5 and they have not disappointed me, as the author got better with her dialogue as she wrote. I can't wait to get to book #5, but 1st will have to listen to the 1st two books as I should have.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Kade is just so irreverent and sexy. Blane is a hunk. The female is not my fave, but the author kept you listening with her take on the 2 brothers, HOT!! These are not erotica books. More of an on going romance/mystery. Nothing too deep or heavy, but the relationship of 2 brothers with the lead female carrying the series. If the brothers were not so much a part of this series, I would have stopped as this female lead is not my fave. She has too much emotional baggage. Every author wants a series, look at JD Robb, but this author did not know how to better develop the female lead so she could write past #5.
Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have downloaded about 15 of her reads as I love her male voices. She takes some getting use to on her female voice, so beware as many other reviewers had a different take on my new fave reader. I like Natalie Ross, Karen White, Gabra Zackman, and the late great Ms Anna Fields.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Two Brothers, oh wait, they already have a film of 2 tigers with that name.
Any additional comments?
The cost of this series is under $10 and so worth the listening time. Enjoy
Looking forward to another installment. Very impressed with this new author. The story sucked me in from the first book. The characters are so engaging, the story inticing, the narrator use of different voices is appreciated.
Would you listen to Turning Point again? Why?
Yes, over and over again.
What did you like best about this story?
The twisted and complicated relationships.
Any additional comments?
I cannot wait for the 4th book to come out.
Best to start with book one 'Turning Point' in this series else you would probably get lost,
Alot more action in this one then the previous two and just as good if you like thriller suspense action with a very uncomfortable would be love triangle. I kinda felt for Kathleen in this one, she's standing firm in her choice, not that it is going to last if the backdoor politic machinations and the other brother has any say.
Blane is not very popular as he is defending a rapist who is guilty, a family member of Kathleen's pops up after years and Kade is being targeted for extermination. Add in the kidnapping and selling of young women, with some very powerful supporters I was not bored.
But I kinda wanted to knock Kade's and Blanes head together, Blane for being so controlling and not seeing Kathleen as she really is, and Kade for sneaking around his brothers back and making matters worse.Still it made for a great romantic tense listen with Angela Dawes narration I just had to keep on listening.
Looking forward to Book 4 on my automatic reading list.
