I have followed her on her blog ever since.
When I found out that she had written a trilogy I was ELATED! She is such a wealth of information not only from her blog, but from her 20 plus years in the emergency medical field. I had NO doubt that her book(s) were going to be amazing. She poured brilliant insight from her expertise as well as her imagination into the pages of her debut novel.
PROOF is the first book in the trilogy. It is a fast paced, page turning, medical/ police detective thriller.
The back cover reads as follows:
"Dr. Lilly Reeves is a young, accomplished ER physician with her whole life ahead of her. BUT that life instantly changes when she becomes the fifth victim of a serial rapist. Believing it's the only way to recover her reputation and secure peace for herself, Lilly sets out to find- and punish, her assailant. Sporting a mysterious tattoo and unusually colored eyes, the rapist should be easy to identify. He even leaves what police would consider solid evidence. But when Lilly believes she has found him, DNA testing clears him as a suspect. How can she prove he is guilty, if science says he is not?"
To me this book is like Greys anatomy and CSI on steroids. It is filled with fast paced story lines, believable (and some lovable) characters, medical drama, action and gut wrenching emotions. It shines a dynamic look into the world of not only police detectives but the medical community as well, in the midst of a very emotional investigation.
I thought I had the book figured out several times only to be spun around questioning what I thought I knew.Read more ›
The plot to the story was fantastic and I didn't see what was coming in the book. I loved learning more about DNA and things related to it. Some of the medical terms were hard to follow, but overall it was easy to read. I didn't particularly care for the fact that Lilly heard a voice in her head at the end of the book, but that is just something that I personally don't like.
Overall this was a great book that I recommend if you enjoy medical thrillers. I most definitely plan on reading the next book in Jordyn Redwood's Bloodline Trilogy - Poison - set to release February 2013.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
It seemed like only a few chapters after thinking that...that Proof just took off! By the time I read the last page, I was hanging on to every word, breathless to see how any of this could come out well for Lilly. One thing about the characters that stood out to me was how flawed they were...and how there were two heroes that took almost equal center stage alongside Lilly. I thought, in the beginning, this might get awkward, but it all turned out so well!
There is quite a bit of adult-ish content in Proof--from the back of the book you can see it's about trying to catch a serial rapist, so you might already have guessed that. But Redwood handles it all very well, and I'd recommend this book for mature teens.
I loved the whole medical side of things Proof. I'll admit that the medical mysteries I've read...I usually find kind of boring--at least the 'medical' side of it. But in Proof, Redwood drew me into the complex dealings of DNA and the like. I don't want to give anything away (which is easy to do with this plot!) so won't say anything else...but, wow, was that genus or what! Kudos to Redwood for writing a stellar medical suspense!!
I reviewed this book for the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance. Thanks to the publishers, Kregel, for sending me a review copy. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.
Jordyn's writing style is easy to read, and compelling. In general I am not one to pick up a book to read. But when I started "Proof" I could not put it down.
The story is amazingly written! Jordyn did a great job of pulling you into the story and keeping you there until the very end!
This is Law & Order SVU with the Medical twists all in one!
Great Read! I highly recommend "PROOF"!
This is a christian book, and I do like christian literature; however, I just got to the point that this felt a little too preachy. It felt like story line story line - christian moment - storyline.
Lilly is an atheist and she is raped. A Dr. that is just a friend b/c he is Christian and she is atheist wants to date her, but does not want to be unevenly yoked. I get it. I admire it, but when a possible angel comes to visit her to tell her God has a better plan for her, I just started tuning out. I tried to keep reading, and then it talked about Satan waging war - again I get it - I even believe it, but it did not for me work with the story line and so I quit reading and deleted from my kindle. I was looking for a mystery and I don't mind some Christianity mixed in, but you lose me when "Gabe" visits.

I liked this book even though it's a little over the top. I had to ask Jordyn how she comes up with this stuff. I think her response was to laugh. Anyway she's amazing.Published 13 months ago by Carol Dunson
