Medical mystery to keep you reading late in the night
August 6, 2016
"Proof," by Jordyn Redwood, is a fast-paced medical mystery/suspense story. It is book one of the "Bloodline Trilogy." The many plot twists held my attention throughout the story.
Main character, Lilly, is a feisty, strong, single woman. She is in control of her life, is a compassionate doctor and caring friend. But, when everything changes and her life is no longer orderly what will she do? When the medical facts do not line up with what she knows to be true she starts digging deeper for truth. Can she find the answers she needs before it is too late? Can she learn to trust God?
Proof will keep you reading way past your normal bedtime! The story is clean. It contains a bit of violence and one subject matter it deals with is rape (there are no details, no filth). The DNA information is the book will fascinate you! If you love a good medical mystery, you won't want to miss out of Jordyn Redwood's Bloodline Trilogy!
I received this book from the author and The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
I 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?
I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review.
All 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.
An 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.
Dr. Lilly Reeves seeks to stop a serial rapist and murderer, even as her own life is endangered. This chilling thriller takes readers into the medical and personal world of an ER physician who fights to unravel a mystery as well as a scientific puzzle. Jordyn Redwood's Proof offers clear proof that she's capable of producing a quality material that satisfies readers and makes them long for her next novel. Congratulations on being an INSPY finalist.
