Breaking up is hard to do, as Kathleen Turner discovers. After a falling-out with her ex, high-powered attorney Blane Kirk, she’s moving on the best she can. Unfortunately, someone from her past is set on revenge and nothing short of killing Kathleen will stop them.
Keeping his brother’s ex-girlfriend alive isn’t something new to assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon, but this time can he protect her from himself? She’s a woman he can’t convince himself to walk away from, no matter what it costs him.
Regret is a constant companion for Blane as he realizes the truth behind the lies he’s been told. Can love heal the past, or can some mistakes not be undone?
Murder reunites Blane, Kade, and Kathleen as the police put Blane in their crosshairs. Blane may lose everything unless he and Kade can find the real murderer before it’s too late. But if they can’t set aside their love for the same woman and work together, it will tear them apart.
In Out of Turn, Kathleen is caught between two warring brothers, and the consequences may be fatal.
This book is the 4th book in the Kathleen Turner Series. It’s supposed to be about Kathleen Turner and her ongoing attempts to stay alive despite multiple threats to her life. Instead, it’s mainly about the overly complicated relationship between Kathleen and two half brothers, Blane Kirk and Kade Dennon. Kathleen loves Blane and Kade loves Kathleen. Both men are hell bent on protecting her and Kathleen is hell bent on not needing protection. Consequently, a threat from prior books emerges and creates a situation that tests the ties between the three of them that may finally create a resolution of their love triangle.
William Gage gets out of prison and puts a hit out on Kathleen because she is the main reason that he was imprisoned. He’s old and decrepit but he still holds a thirst for revenge. Kathleen makes for an easy target because she refuses to listen to the advice that Kade and Blane continue to give her that would keep her safe. With everything that has happened over the recent years, Kathleen thinks that she is tough and can take care of herself but she is wrong. The dangerous situations that she puts herself in become comical because she consistently gets rescued by either Kade or Blane. She reminds me of Penelope Pitstop from the old cartoons.
To be honest, the book was very predictable. I knew that every time Kathleen was under fire, Kade or Blane would save her. The suspense in this book was more focused on the relationship between the three of them and not whodunnit. Nonetheless, it was still a good book and I am still looking forward to reading the next one.
