Turn To Me by Tiffany A. Snow

 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, especially as Christmas approaches, 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.

A festive afternoon of Christmas tree shopping turns life-threatening when Kathleen and Blane become targets for an unknown gunman. They make it home alive, but Kathleen realizes her boyfriend has been keeping secrets. The deadly kind.

Blane’s current case is drawing heated debate and stirring the pot of public fury. Kathleen is horrified by the threats – and worse – being directed at him. 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.


There is nothing like getting into the Christmas spirit by going Christmas tree shopping with your gorgeous lawyer boyfriend when it is snowing all around. That is until someone starts shooting at the two of you and you are ducking for cover. That's what happens to Kathleen Turner when her and Blane Kirk are out one day looking for a tree. It's then that Kathleen finds out that Blane's life as well as her own is in danger thanks to a major case that Blane is on that could end up making or breaking his political aspirations.
Never one to just sit on the sidelines, Kathleen is determined to possibly risk her life in order to find out the truth. Surrounded by people who lie as easily as they breathe makes things difficult for Kathleen when she is trying to discover who is telling the truth and who is out to hurt her.

What I liked:

Even though Kathleen ends up getting rescued more time that I care to count, she doesn't always need to be rescued by someone which is nice. She knows how to fend for herself in sticky situations…for the most part. And she is smarter than the men around her give her credit for.

What I did not like:

The fact that Kathleen has attacked, shot at, and basically put in harm’s way more times than I can count, she still hasn't learned to be cautious. There was one occasion when I was wondering why she would go anywhere by herself after everything that has happened and why would Kade be okay with it as well. That annoyed me a little bit.

Final thoughts:

This was one romantic suspense story that I easily got into. Between this book and the first book, I would have to say that I liked Turn to Me the best. There was never a dull moment. Something was always going on. And there was more of Kade in this book, which I loved. My only complaint is that I have to wait until February 19, 2013 for the release of Tiffany A. Snow’s third book in the Kathleen Turner series, “Turning Point”. I hope these next few weeks go by very quickly…

Rating: 4 ½ out of 5.
