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. She spins the story beautifully keeping us scratching our heads in wonder..but rooting for the main characters throughout.
Once I started reading the book, it was very difficult to put down.
After I read the last page I felt exhausted as if just exiting a roller coaster.
A week has passed since I have finished PROOF and I find my self still drifting into thoughts about its characters.
TO me- the sign of not only a great writer, but an engaging book is when you find yourself thinking of the characters long after the last page has been turned. Redwood and PROOF have proved immeasurably true to both.
I am looking forward to the next two books in this trilogy and am truly hopeful to see many of the same characters surface again.
For a debut novel, this one, five stars- hands down. Very well done. I highly recommend this book. You will NOT be disappointed. I promise.
Great job Jordyn!
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.

Bloodline Trilogy #1
By Jordyn Redwood
Dr. Lilly Reeves is a dedicated ER physician when her life is thrown into chaos when she is attacked. She is the the fifth known victim of a suspected serial rapist, a man with distinctive physical characteristics. The attack has left Lilly in a state of unbalance - her life is slowly unraveling and she is left in a state of anger and fear. Her dedication to her job and empathy for her patients was stolen the night she was attacked.
Detective Nathan Long is determined to get this monster off the the streets. With the evidence he leaves and the description given by his victims he should be easy to find. But no clue as to his identity has been found. When Nathan reaches out to Lilly he is drawn to her in a way that he hasn't been to the other victims.
When an incident occurs in the ER, Lilly believes she's found her attacker. But when the evidence points to someone else, Lilly knows that it is up to her to find the proof needed to get this criminal off the streets and to protect the innocent lives he is now targeting. With no one seeming to believe her Lilly is on her own.
But someone believes her and is working to discover the truth before Lilly's life is cut short by the man who has made her his number one enemy. And very few people have survived once he has them in his sights.
This is not a lighthearted read due to the very nature of the story, but it is well written and intense. There is a subtle undercurrent of a spiritual message throughout that offers Lilly something she has never before experienced - hope that God does love and care for her. This is the first book in the Bloodline Trilogy and worth the read if you can handle the subject matter and the utter depravity of the perpetrator. The DNA and medical information is completely fascinating and may open a world you've never before contemplated.
I was provided a copy of this book by the author through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.
