Five years ago, Keelyn Samuels's armed, mentally ill stepfather took her family hostage in their house in rural Colorado. She and her half-sister Raven made it out alive, but others did not. Authorities blamed the father's frequent hallucinations about a being named Lucent, but in the end, even the best of the FBI's hostage negotiators failed to overcome the man's delusions and end the standoff peacefully. Now, Lucent is back, and he's no hallucination. In fact, he is a very real person with dangerous motives. He has kidnapped Raven's daughter, and--Keelyn worries--maybe has hurt Raven as well. Though she is estranged from her sister, Keelyn feels the immediate need to find Raven and save what family she has left. But when others who were involved in that fateful day start dying, some by mysterious circumstances, Keelyn wonders if she can emerge unscathed a second time.

tumcsecTuscaloosa, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5suspense and medical mystery all rolled into oneNovember 6, 2016tumcsecTuscaloosa, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the second book I've read and reviewed by Jordyn Redwood and it's just as chilling and realistic as the first one. Redwood has the medical knowledge that brings her writing to life. It holds you and won't let go. I've yet to figure out the ending on either book. My guesses were never right and I found myself going from one suspect to another because of how the plot reached out and brought new revelations at every turn. These books would make the best movies or crime/medical TV shows!
A very small part of the plot from Proof was brought in at the beginning with the same characters but it would still be easy to follow if you haven't read the first one in the series, but you wouldn't want to miss it, believe me.
What you get is a story that involves a family torn apart by murder from years ago to the present and the people it affected. Someone is out for revenge and it involves poisonous spiders. Two seemingly unrelated plots will eventually come together and you don't want to miss that. Find a comfortable seat, get a beverage to quench your thirst and make sure you have plenty of time because once you start you won't want to put it down.
I received this book from the publisher and was not required to write a review, positive or otherwise.
muffinHonea Path, SCAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Read!October 21, 2016muffinHonea Path, SCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Jordyn Redwoods novel Poison is another wonderful read! I highly recommend this book and all of Jordyn Redwoods book. She has become one of my favorite inspirational suspense authors. If you like good, clean, easy to read suspense books, this one is definitely for you!
This book follows Keelyn Blake. Five years ago, Keelyns stepfather took her along with the rest of her family hostage. He ended up committing unspeakable acts to her family blaming Lucent for why he did this. Only some of the family made it out alive. One of the FBIs negotiators, Lee Watson, was the one trying to get the family out. However, he wasnt able to get all the family out alive.
Now Lucent is back and this time, he is a real person. He is doing terrible things to Keelyns family. Keelyn and Lee have reason to come back together and there is a little romance thrown in!
"I was given the book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review.
MaryMinnesotaAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5RivetingOctober 17, 2016MaryMinnesotaAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Poison," by Jordyn Redwood is an exciting medical mystery/suspense novel. The story moved along at a fast pace and kept my attention the whole time! Poison is book two in the "Bloodline Trilogy." While it stands alone, you should really read book one, "Proof," because it will help you enjoy this one even more (and it is also very good).
This story focuses on Keelyn, Lee and Raven. Each of these adults have experienced heartache. They have things in their lives that are deeply hidden, and they desire to keep them that way. Keelyn and Lee are engaged, but they have both held back information. Raven believes no one in the world cares about her. She just might be about to get revenge on all those who have hurt her. Who can be trusted? And why is someone trying to kill Keelyn? What is causing the unimaginable physical pain some people are suffering from? Hopefully the doctor can find a cure fast!
Poison is an easy reading book that is clean and easy to understand. It is also very entertaining, and will keep you guessing throughout the story. It is well written and filled with drama.
I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

They are steeped in suspense and keep me turning pages. The plot is well written in this book by Redwood, with plenty of twists and turns. She writes flawless characterizationsÃ¢â¬âyou feel you're alongside them every step of the way. It was difficult to find a stopping point where I could make myself put down the book to read again later. Highly recommended.
VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5"Poison" is a psychological thrillerMay 5, 2013VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5With a title such as "Poison" you just know that this book will jolt you by taking you somewhere into a world where there is a deadly poisonous substance or person that is encountered. You crack the book anticipating, not knowing what will grip you. Book #2 of the Bloodline Triology follows tight on the heels of "Proof," Book #1 in the series. in "Proof" we were taken on a roller coaster ride into the lives of characters as they were seeking proof for their case. "Poison" is no less of a ride and certainly takes you into a venomous world of danger. A world of spiritual darkness. Mental instability. Danger fraught at every turn. "Poison" is a psychological thriller sure to keep you on edge.
Jordyn Redwood has wrapped her story around characters with psychotic behaviors. Characters include some who are from the book "Proof" and were staged in the shadow of a tragedy that was a subplot of 'Proof." The story opens with our heroine waiting for her fiancÃÂ©e to arrive. A man sits beside her and tells her he is Lucent. But Lucent is suppose to be the delusion of a sick man and not a real person; yet Lucent, a real person, is sitting beside her and knows things this stranger shouldn't.
Keelyn's half sister, Rachel, one of the survivors of the tragedy in "Proof," is missing and the story is tightly woven around her. Rachel is a troubled young lady but one who is a seeker. But does she find God? Does she reject God? Keelyn's fiancÃÂ©e, Lee, is a SWAT team member and certainly a handy person to have around with all the danger they face.
"Her screams caused Keelyn's body to shake with desperate anxiety."
The author's personal experience as a pediatric nurse in the ER is evidenced as she records scenes involving Raven's child, Sophia, whose life is in immense danger. The professional care for this child - medical, social services, and personal - (and others for whom she has cared in the ER) is evident as Ms. Redwood writes. It is rather humorous to read the scenes and actions as Keelyn takes on the care of Sophia knowing absolutely nothing about child care. In a story as deep and dark as "Poison," it is nice to see a bit of levity.
Having now reviewed both "Proof" and "Poison," I can hardly wait for Jordyn Redwood to launch Book #3 - "Peril."
