Mystery | Suspense

Nia Washington is an incredible 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 in Connecticut 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.

Re: Dark Turns

Don't think I've pushed myself outside my comfort zone just to learn. I love learning but I'm also wary of strangers and new situations and tend to stay away from doing anything drastic.

To become a good knitter, there are always new stitches and
ways of doing things that take you out of your comfort zone.
If you want to be better at your craft, you usually try to
learn how to learn how to do these things. In most cases,
you find out that they usually weren't as bad as they seemed,
once you get started. There are still projects that I still
won't attempt, but I've gotten much braver with my projects,
and don't know what took me so long to get my nerve up. If
you want to do something bad enough, you'll learn how to do

yes, when I decided to go back to work after being home for 14 years

Funny that, I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone and
ended up learning a great deal for example in travelling.
However, I have not pushed myself out of my comfort zone
with the specific intention to learn something.
G. Bisbjerg 2:05am November 17, 2015)

Yes , I push myself out of my comfort zone lots of times and days , just by going places and being around some people that I had rather not be around . I have also learned that once I push myself to go , that I enjoyed myself and was glad I went and made some new friends . So I do push myself a lot at different things.
Joan Thrasher 11:13am November 17, 2015)

OH, Your book sounds like a really GOOOOOD read .
Joan Thrasher 11:15am November 17, 2015)

yes, I have had to do that in life since I had no choice and
became stronger and more versatile.
Sharon Berger 5:01pm November 17, 2015)

I have ... public speaking to extremely large crowds ... I
did it and while it's still not comfortable to do, I know I
can do it!
Lisa Miller 9:32am November 18, 2015)

Yes, I went back to school at age 50. I had been out of school for 30 years so it was like visiting a foreign land.
Nancy Marcho 1:00pm November 18, 2015)

Ron Frampton 1:17pm November 18, 2015)

Yes, I pushed myself to take a plane when I was afraid of flying.
Beatrice Pierre 9:26pm November 18, 2015)

Yes. I took a ballroom dancing class in college with a friend and afraid because I am not graceful but it was fun.
Pam Howell 9:25am November 19, 2015)

I've never thought about it before, but, yes, there have been times I've pushed myself out of my comfort zone. Speaking in front of an audience is tops on the list.
Anna Speed 12:52pm November 19, 2015)

I don't really venture out of my comfort zone. I like to stay where I feel safe.
