    I received a copy of PERIL by Jordyn Redwood from Kregel Publica

    I received a copy of PERIL by Jordyn Redwood from Kregel Publications. I have read her other books, PROOF and POISON, in the Bloodline Trilogy, and I didn’t expect anything less than emotion and danger – I received all that and more. I had received POISON from Kregel Publications in the past, but I found PROOF on my own.
    The writing is what I love most about Jordyn Redwood’s literature. The suck you into that place; all of the trials of the world fade and you know only the main character, Morgan. You feel what she feels, you say what she says, and you wince with her when things don’t quite go as planned. Then again, you also cheer with Morgan when everything goes perfectly. One of my favorite lines in the book came on page 94: “…a haunted darkness in her voice.” Lines like that send a chill over your skin.
    I am going to pass this book onto my aunt, who is a nurse like Morgan, and I know she will appreciate the medical references. I’m hoping to get her hooked on this series with me so we can share opinions, and watch for more novels by Jordyn Redwood. Even though this is a trilogy, I’m hoping for a fourth book.

    After reading the first two books in this series, I thought I knew what to expect from Jordyn Redwood. While Peril was (still) a great book, Redwood delivered a story that is definitely distinct from the rest of the series.

    Peril started out a bit slow for me. However, once the pace picked up, it was pretty much non-stop from there! As each scene changed, I felt so pulled ... wanting to keep reading about the current set, but also wanting to go back to see what was happening elsewhere. There were a couple of really late nights as I stayed up way too late to read "just one more page." I felt the two story arcs were absolutely amazing. There were a few confusing moments as I tried to see if/how they even fit together, but the ending totally made up for any confusion that I had along the way. So good!

    Through the whole book, I LOVED the pro-life theme. Redwood did a fantastic job showing some of the risks with showing apathy toward the unborn. And while heartbreaking, I was so grateful she included some of the "regrets" that people experienced after choosing to abort their babies. Even Morgan's grief over the death of her daughter showed how beautiful life is.

    Peril is an intense read and one I highly recommend! [4 stars]

    I received a free copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    The latest book from medical suspense author Jordyn Redwood is layered with tension from the first page. There's a serial killer. A medical experiment that's on the brink of success or terrible failure. A marriage that might not survive an infant's death and so much more. The hospital scenes are so well done, you feel like you're in the middle of the room. Familiar characters from earlier books show up, but you can enjoy this book without having read the first two though you'll understand all the nuances if you do. A good choice for those who love suspense laced with medical scenes.
