Proof (Bloodline Trilogy #1)
Did I say Wow . . .?
Sort of mind-blowing. Couldn't put it down and then I scrambled to my laptop to see if Jordyn had made this stuff up—and actually this medical suspense thriller is based in real science.
I was creeped out and alternately fascinated with the villain.
Great novel, but WARNING—

For me, the only things missing from this novel are deep point of view and deeper characterization. When the point of view stays on ...more

This book completely captivated me!
Oh. My. Goodness, where do I start. The plot is unlike anything I've ever read before, I loved that it was a combination medical thriller and crime novel, and the medical and DNA facts absolutely fascinated me! The characters were all so like able, well except for the villain who was thoroughly hate able! I really liked Lilly, Kadin, Nathan, and Dana. Jason and Nathan were both really cool guys but Kadin, oh my gosh! Here is a fictional man that is absolutely w ...more
Boy! Have I learned not to judge too soon! It seems after I thought that...that the book just took off! By the time I read the last page, I was hanging on to every word, breathless to see how any of this could come out well for Lilly.
Excellent, excellent job, Jordyn Redwood!! I LOVED the whole medical side of thi ...more
I tried and didn't make it. Wow, oh wow. Jordyn Redwood can WRITE. From the very first sentence until the last, I was hooked. This book was like an IV fully open, running and running.
I'm a big fan of suspense and I love medical mysteries. It had them both, but a sweet little romance sprinkled on top.
Awesome book, I'll be looking for more of Redwood's books and next time I won't make the mistake of starting it late at night. Staying up all nig ...more

I had to read PROOF in one sitting, almost. I love a fast-paced, edgy medical / police thriller and this one was like butter icing, it was so good. PROOF had twists and turns that had me turning the pages, dying to find out how it was possible. This medical specialist author stunned me with her ability to throw me curves I did not expect.
Each aspect of the heroine’s life as an ER physician is perfectly detailed. You feel you are right there in the emerge ...more
This was author Jordyn Redwoods first book and she has captured me from the first to the end and has me foaming at the mouth for more. Her next book, the next in the series, Poison: A Novel (Bloodline Trilogy, #2) comes out in February 2013. And I will be per-ordering it for sure.
Dr. Lilly Reeves, an ER physician was changed by horrible actions of another. She is the ...more
One day, my sister told me about a new author and how the author, and actual nurse herself, writes medical mysteries. She had invoked some mild interest in me; in other words, “YAY getting it right, YIKES medical.” My mom and her sisters may all work in some aspect of the medical field, but I did not inherit the guts to handle that kind of stuff beyond a first aid class.
Then I saw the cover to Proof. That is when a revelation came to me; I had to read that book. And I did.
The first scene is...more
The crimes are grisly ones. The victims are suffering. The villain seemingly uncatchable, even when it would seem he’s in the cop’s grasp.
I was in aw ...more

Wow! Great intense read! At first, I wasn't sure I could read it. I had to push past the first few chapters. I was so in tune with Lily that it made it hard. I was so glad I kept going! I was hooked! I was almost late to church because I was involved in the book! Dont miss this story!
