Mehr über den Autor
Ich schreibe gerne und freue mich, Teil der Amazon-Publishing-Familie zu sein. Mein Roman »Kein Zurück« ist der erste Band der Kathleen-Turner-Reihe. Ich schreibe über Personen und Themen, über die ich selbst gerne lesen würde - eine Heldin, die eine Nachbarin oder beste Freundin sein könnte; zwei Männer, die jeweils ihre eigene Vision von Dunkelheit und Licht darstellen und beide um ihre Aufmerksamkeit buhlen; verpackt in einen Thriller, der sich ebenso auf die Charaktere wie auf das spannende Geschehen konzentriert.
Zu mir: Ich habe schon Romane gelesen, als ich noch viel zu jung für ihre Inhalte war. Darüber hinaus hege ich eine ungesunde Affinität für »Doctor Who«, mag lieber Pepsi als Cola, am allerliebsten jedoch Absolut-Wodka, halte Männer, die Frauencocktails trinken, für Weicheier, habe gelernt, niemals den Glauben in meine geliebten St. Louis Cardinals zu verlieren, und kann die kompletten Drehbücher von »Harry und Sally« und »Apollo 13« auswendig aufsagen. George Washington ist cool, Bon Jovi hat's immer noch drauf und Bruce Willis ist der männlichste Mann aller Zeiten. Vor allem ist Romantik immer modern. Mehr Informationen und Extras finden Sie auf meiner Website www.Tiffany-Snow.com.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Tiffany Snow earned degrees in Education and History from the University of Missouri–Columbia, before launching a career in Information Technology. After nearly fifteen years in IT, she switched careers to what she always dreamed of doing - writing. Tiffany is the author of romantic suspense novels such as the Kathleen Turner Series, which includes No Turning Back, Turn to Me and Turning Point. Since she’s drawn to character-driven books herself, that’s what she loves to write, and the guy always gets his girl. She feeds her love of books with avid reading, yet she manages to spare time and considerable affection for trivia, eighties hair bands, the St. Louis Cardinals, and Elvis. She and her husband have two daughters and one dog whose untimely demise Tiffany contemplates on a daily basis.
Von einem Thriller erwarte ich mehr. Schade, hatte mich auf das lesen gefreut.

I literally could not take my hands off the book. The plot is exhilarating and dangerous, and introduces a seedy, edgy perspective on the corruption present in modern politics as well as in the human trafficking business. In the chemistry department, Blane and Kat steam and sizzle; their developing relationship is soulful and tender, yet the attraction between them so hot. Kade and Kat, on the other hand, don't have anything physical between the two of them and somehow, they're tenfold hotter.
[Warning, fangirly rant ahead!] Kade, OMFG ♥ I can't even begin to discuss my love for him. He's a sleek, lethal bastard of a character, and yet with Kat, he's finally met his match; he's finally met the girl that can bring him to his knees--and not just figuratively speaking. He realizes how Kat's relationship with Blane, his half-brother, is based off all the wrong reasons--based off the injustices of the American legal system and of the power he possesses--but also how she, in shattering his own guided heart to pieces, will become his demise. This is devastating, not just because of the love triangle between the brothers, but because of the depth of emotion Kade has only known with Kat and the inability for him to ever have her. Normally this kind of thing is too soap opera-esque for me, but in Turning Point, it's raw, emotional, and absolutely perfect.
Katherine stands her moral ground, but that doesn't mean she isn't tempted. She won't admit this directly, so it's more my psychoanalytical side taking over here. It was kind of frustrating to see her be such a goody two-shoes, but this is more a reflection of my own depravity than of her characterization ;) I absolutely need to see how her relationship--or rather, strained accompaniment of--Kade, will turn out in the next book! And don't get me started on the cliffhanger regarding her situation with Blane and the law... Tiffany, we readers need more now!!!
Pros: Entertaining, fast-paced action // Highly suspenseful--I read and kept reading without effort // Smoothly written; casual style // KADE DENNON // Wicked love scenes that'll make you blush // Fresh narrative voice--I love Kat's character and point of view
Cons: Kat's self-control is unrealistic. How could anyone resist Kade........ . . . .
Love: Just to give you a taste of how sexyjao;isdfjasdf Kade Dennon is...
"F*** bullets," he rasped. "You're going to be the death of me."
"I don't need you to carry me," I insisted.
"I need to."
Jizz in my pants, he is one fictional hero I could seriously trip over!! WHY OH WYH ISn"T HE REAL?????? !!??
Verdict: Tiffany Snow's newest book in the Kathleen Turner series is exactly what I look for in a romantic suspense; the breeziness in narration and remarkable characterization are impossible to put down! I consider Turning Point exemplary chick lit; it's chick-lit in killer heels--chick-lit with gunfights and fistfights, the horrors of today's most unlawful industries, and of course, sex: naughty, delicious good-girl-gone-bad sex. If you haven't already, I recommend you start this series now.

It feels as if I've waited forever to get my hands on this book - and it didn't disappoint.
From start to finish, this installment in the series is filled with love and lust, explosions, gun fights, betrayals (both real and imagined), wildly inappropiate outfits, bad guys with knives, twisted emotions, kidnappings, rapes, impressive self-defense tactics, middle of the night escapes, questionable decisions, and declarations of love. And slowly simmering beneath it all is the tension that naturally occurs when two overly protective, Alpha brothers find themselves in love with the same woman.
In this book, we are treated to a more self-confident Kathleen; a more loving and relaxed side of Blane; and a more tormented Kade. And we are left wanting even more.
Lovers of the first two books will be riveted. Although I don't think you necessarily have to read the first two books to enjoy this one, I would recommend it. You really owe it to yourself to savor the building of these messy relationships while you wonder how the author can ever clean this up and make it right for everyone involved.
I have faith she can do it - and I am looking forward to Part 4 (although having to wait until December is killing me).
I highly recommend the entire series.
P.S. GO KADE!!
