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?
Distraught by the turn of events, Lilly suffers a setback and is fired from her job shortly after discovering she is pregnant as a result of her attack. Blinded by her desire for revenge, Lilly vows she will seize her life back and bring her rapist to justice--and the first step is figuring out how her nefarious assailant could cheat the usually conclusive DNA test. Her search must unravel the mystery of his genetic fingerprint even if it forces Lilly to deal with her own past and shaky faith. But the rapist is watching Lilly's every move. Can she discover the truth before he ends her life--and the life of her unborn child?

Kadin is a strong Christian who ties to help Lily turn her life to the Lord, while he finds parents for her babies and helps keep Lily safe.
This book is a combination of medical and crime thriller. It is written so good that it pulls you in right away and it is hard to put the book down. The story has a lot of violence that is described so would turn away some readers. But it is a great who done it type story. The story is so realistic and fast moving. The author worked in critical care and emergency nursing for 2 decades and it is very evident that she knows her stuff with how she has written this story. This is the author's first novel, but the writing is so good that I am hooked. I cannot wait for more of her books!

Deana5 Stars Out Of 5Exceptional Medical ThrillerAugust 6, 2016DeanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am a huge fan of medical mystery books like Richard Mabry writes. This book is definitely right up there with his caliber of writing . I just discovered that the author has written a couple of other books that will be on my list to buy next. I'm excited that I found a new author that writes suspenseful books with a medical theme.
As Lilly works in the ER of a hospital, I can visualize her movements with perfect precision. She is very skilled and well liked at her job. One day the unthinkable happens to her. She has been viciously raped and the police suspect several other cases are similar to hers. Her emotional state was well written and I could feel her sinking deeper into depression. Her work is being affected and she is borderline on the brink of a nervous breakdown when she discovers something that happened after her rape. What is it that will cause her to turn away from her friends? What secret Is she hiding? I wanted to hug her and tell her everything was going to be alright. I felt her pain and her despair. Have you ever thought that you couldn't handle a situation? "Sometimes , God will bring you to the end of yourself so that all you see is him."
The medical aspect of the story is riveting and I loved the knowledge the author shows about DNA in her writing. It is very detailed and really gave me insight into something I was not familiar with. I appreciate the intricate storyline and how one things ties to another. I loved the spiritual references throughout the book and how some of the characters relied on their faith and were comfortable praying for situations. I loved the mention of sacrifice. It was well placed in the story and reminds readers that Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for us.
The ending is an on the edge of your seat action packed thrill ride. How far would you go to prove your innocence?

grammy5 Stars Out Of 5A bite your nails, can't put down bookAugust 2, 2016grammyQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5All I can say is WOW. This was a very interesting story and the ending was a great way to show God's love. I did figure out a little of this mystery but not the whole thing. In fact, what I did figure out only made me want to read more to see how it all fit together. The characters were very well developed. The story flowed well. It did not miss a beat and kept me so involved I finished in 3 days, which for me is very fast. The editing was well done except for a few grammatical errors in some of the characters speaking and I wasn't sure if it was intentional or not. As an example, who was used when it should have been whom. Not major, and like I stated, maybe on purpose? I do not think you will be disappointed. God was shown throughout the book but not in a pushy way. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. If you like a good medical mystery, you will enjoy this book. This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.
Dianne5 Stars Out Of 5ProofDecember 1, 2014DianneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5An excellent read, especially if you love medical mysteries as much as I do. This is the first of the Bloodlines trilogy by Jordyn Redwood, and I'm pretty sure if you read one you will grab the others, too. Can't wait for the other books in this series. I was on the edge of my seat all the way through. Very hard to put down. I give this one a solid five thumbs up.
