“WOW...just, wow! I’m completely & totally blown away by this book, and I don’t understand how I’ve never come across this series before now. The cover strapped me in my seat, the first chapter shot me out of the gate, and the rest of the book was one hell of a roller coaster ride!
Turning Point is action-packed, full of mystery, suspense and keeps you on the edge of your until the very end. Upon being introduced to Kathleen Turner, I knew she was going to be a favorite. Her intellect, wit, strength and all around kick ass attitude endeared her to me. She handles every situation thrown at her (and there are a lot) with a punch and a smile, and had me rooting for her every step of the way. She is independent by nature, but doesn’t mind leaning on her support system, Blane and Kade, when she needs to. As a reader, I wanted and needed her happiness; for someone to fight for her; for someone to put her first. After all that she has suffered in the past, as well as in this book, she more than deserves all of that.
Blane & Kade are half-brothers who both have feelings for Kathleen, which leads us to...the dreaded love triangle. I don’t like the triangle and it’s usually one of the quickest ways to turn me off a book; BUT if done properly, it can add just enough drama to perfect a story. That was the case in Turning Point and I loved every minute of being on Team Kade!
A lot happens in this book and while the main storyline, a human trafficking mystery, is the main plot, several sub-plots were also developing. This made for a fast paced read that left me reeling from the excitement, but also a little overload. If felt like everything & anything that could happen to Kathleen, did happen to Kathleen and was a little overkill. However, the last 50-100 pages were thrilling, absolutely unbelievable and had me screaming when it ended. I really, really don’t want to wait until December for the next book!
While this is book #3 in the series, it can be read as a standalone. However, I think to get the full impact of the book, you need to read the series in order. There were times that I did feel a little lost, but it didn’t detract from my reading experience.
Overall, this was an amazing introduction to Tiffany Snow’s writing and the fabulous world of Kathleen Turner. Both are equally fantastic and a must read for any fan of the contemporary romance genre.
