Dark Turns


Dark Turns by Cate Holahan

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Nia Washington is an incredibly talented ballerina. She fought her way up from the streets and was nearing the pinnacle of her profession when an injury and a broken heart derailed her career. Taking a temporary job at an elite boarding school was supposed to give her time to nurse both body and soul. It was supposed to be a safe place to launch a triumphant comeback. It is anything but.

Shortly after she arrives at the beautiful lakeside campus, she discovers the body of a murdered student, and her life takes a truly dark turn. It’s not long before she is drawn into a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with a ruthless killer. And Nia isn’t the only target. She must use all of her street smarts to protect her dancers, save a wrongfully accused student, and rescue the man she loves.

A stunning and suspenseful tale of passion and betrayal, Cate Holahan’s Dark Turns will take readers deep into the mind of a murderer and the woman who must put an end to the killing.


My Review

4 stars

Nia Washington is an up and coming ballerina. But when she suffers a foot injury, she decides to take time off to help teach at a private school. But she discovers the body of a student in the lake by the school. As Nia works more with the students, she starts hearing rumors about the dead girl and decides to investigate. At the same time she also starts getting close to another advisor, Peter. But then Nia seems to be the target of the killer. Will she make it out alive?

Nia discovers the body of a student drowned so she is constantly in check with the police. But as she is around the students, she starts learning more about the happenings around the school. One girl, Aubrey seems to be willing to do whatever it takes to stay the head of her class. Then Nia seems to be the target of the killer.

I admit that I don’t really know much about ballet, but this book is descriptive enough to keep me fascinated. The mystery was interesting and filled with a really crazy girl. It is a really good story and I just had to keep reading to find out what happened next.

If you like good thrillers this is one that I recommend that you get. You will not be disappointed.

To purchase Dark Turns make sure to check out Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Goodreads.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
