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.
*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.*
ER physician Lilly Reeves is sure of herself and her busy life, until the night she becomes the victim of a serial rapist. The author handles this subject in a tasteful manner, and presents the emotional fall-out realistically. Each of the women claim their attacker had the same startling physical characteristics and a unique tattoo. Lilly is hanging onto her sanity by a thin thread when she is able to visually identify the man, but his DNA is not a match for any of the crime scenes. Sure that there's a way to prove his guilt, Lilly takes the investigation into her own hands and begins following a trail that will bring her unlikely allies in her quest for justice.
Increasingly frustrated by the dead ends of his investigation, detective Nathan Long is eaten up with worry over the serial rapist case. Things are not adding up. When DNA evidence frees the man to whom all other clues point, Nathan is certain he is still the one behind the attacks. Things get a little more complicated when the DNA does match a man with a prior rape conviction in another state. Could he be the perpetrator? The original suspect has disappeared, and so has Dr. Reeves. There are several lives at stake, and a ticking clock, as the story races to its finish.
There were several compelling aspects to this novel. There was certainly lots of medical information, but I never felt like it was overwhelming. The police investigation had an interesting angle by making the partnering detectives differ so strongly on their belief of the identity of the attacker. I thought the faith side of the story was handled well. It was the romance that had me shaking my head. There were two men who were drawn to Lilly, but only one for whom she reached out when she had a need, even at very crucial times. For their part, one of the men seemed to actively avoid being around her, so his romantic interest didn't ring true. It seemed a rather lopsided love triangle, although reader intuition told you she'd end up picking the less likely guy anyway. But in the end there were no guarantees that any of them would survive, as the deadly intent of the criminal came more and more in focus.
I would recommend this book to a specific set of people. Young or sensitive readers would be encouraged to read elsewhere. For myself, I was intrigued and will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
