BOOK REVIEW – PROOF by JORDYN REDWOOD
What do you do when you’re an ER doctor and an atheist? What do you do when you tend a pregnant patient who is the victim of a serial rapist? What do you do when you butt heads with the detective on the case? Meet Dr. Lilly Reeves as she begins a journey that will take her on first one twist and then another, searching for answers that defy medical evidence. Lilly first sets out on her quest to answer unanswerable questions. DNA evidence “clears [the] suspected serial rapist” but Lilly has to find a way to prove otherwise. With well-guarded secrets of her own, her quest brings her face to face, not only with an unthinkable monster, but with her own past as well.
A critical and emergency care nurse, Ms. Redwood has also woven her knowledge of all things medical into her story as neatly as a pin. Or syringe, so to speak. In fact, Proof hinges on medical fact and conditions to create not only a medical mystery, but a seeming perfect crime. Ms. Redwood has spun a tale of high intrigue and suspense, layering first one twist and then another.
God sends people into each of our lives for reasons we may not recognize at the time. Ms. Redwood has placed such characters in Lilly’s life, both long term acquaintances and passers-by, who speak the necessary word in season. Little by little, step by step, Lilly is transformed from her once self-destructive behavior. Just as we all are on our journey in life.
Ms. Redwood is a true story teller, pulling the reader in, feeding us bits and pieces to keep us reading through to the climactic ending. Proof is the first in the Bloodline Trilogy, and leaves me eager to read the sister books, Poison and Peril.
