TAKEN HOSTAGE is a rather scary suspense involving Bio-terrorism. Dr. Regan Lockhart has developed a vaccine that might cure certain kinds of cancer but she is sucked into a scary nightmare when she is attacked on a busy commute to the hospital early one morning. Her daughter is kidnapped, her nanny is murdered, and terrorists are insisting she develop a virus that will kill mass amounts of people or she'll never see her daughter alive again. No dead bodies are found by hero or heroine if you are the screamish sort, there is a bit of realism suspended with a bank scene, but otherwise I was at the edge of my seat. What would Regan do? Will Colby be able to rescue her? Will she be able to save his sister's life? Will the terrorists win? You'll have to read this page-turner to find out. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

Regan has one thing that is more important then life its self. When that one thing goes missing she will stop at nothing to get her back and it that means helping the bad guys she will come up with something as long as it keeps her daughter safe. Colby has seen loss and he is sick of it he will stop at nothing to help save it sister, but when some other people has plans it seems it will stop at nothing to help a women save her daughter but at what cost. This is a first book for me from Mrs. Redwood and I don't know why, I will say this will not be my last thats for sure. This book had me on the edge of my seat there were moments of telling a story and there were moments of sitting on the edge of your seat moments. I could not put this book down and it was so worth every minute. I loved how this was a clean read and that even in the darkest moments for the characters they looked for God for the peace they needed. Seriously you can not go wrong with this amazing book.

I really enjoy Jordyn Redwood's writing, both her storylines and her attention to detail, especially her attention to medical detail. As a professional nurse, Ms. Redwood enjoys the medical field so much that she has a blog that assists other authors in writing medically accurate scenes. Her knowledge and love of all things medical shines in this newest release, Taken Hostage. Taken Hostage starts off with a bang when what looks like an extraordinary case of road rage, turns into something far more sinister. Colby Waterson is on his way to the hospital to meet with the new neurosurgeon who has agreed to take on his sister's case. His sister has a rare form of brain cancer that other doctors have claimed to be untreatable. Regan Lockhart, a neurosurgeon, has developed a possible cure; but when Colby sees a woman as a victim of road rage, he stops to help her after she is run off the road. Except, there is something different about the other car; it is almost like the driver is trained to take Regan's vehicle out of traffic without causing her harm. Colby, a bounty hunter and ex special forces, recognizes special training when he sees it. Carefully approaching the disable vehicle, he finds Regan Lockhart being dragged by force and pushed into the other vehicle. Then the shooting begins. Fast paced from the first page to the last, Jordyn Redwood has penned another winner.

How far would a person go to save their daughter? That’s what Dr. Regan Lockhart will find out in this chilling story. As if nearly being killed in a deliberate car accident weren’t enough, they took her eleven year old daughter as ransom and shot her nanny. When bounty hunter Colby Waterson not only witnesses the accident but protects her life, the stakes run higher. A radical cancer cure ties these two together; but will it also be the catalyst that gets them killed? I was left breathless from the first sentence! Right from the starting gate there’s full-on action and just keeps building from there. I found this difficult at best to put down because there was so much going on and left me reeling. I could see so many scenarios played out in today’s world and it was terrifying. This is one that will take you hostage!

I’m So Glad I Read This Outstanding Suspense Taken Hostage by Jordyn Redwood is a book that will hold you hostage from beginning to end. Redwood’s twist of medical research in this book keeps you turning the pages to see what will happen next. That kept me reading late at night to get to the end. The characters are very real as they are faced with kidnapping, danger and making hard choices for self or the greater good. The suspense begins at the very first page and the ending…well I didn’t know for sure how it would end. The romance just tops the book off to be a book you just don’t want to miss. I received a preview copy of this book from the author. I was not required to post a review and the opinions are my own.

This is the first book I read by this author, and I have definitely become a fan. The story centers around Regan Lockhart and Colby Waterson. Regan’s daughter has been kidnapped . The reason is that Regan is a neurosurgeon that has used an experimental virus for cancer treatment. But the kidnappers are more interested in the evil they can do with it, than in saving humanity. Their trade is the daughter for the virus. Colby, a bounty hunter, has lost too much in his life and his sister might be the next one if she doesn’t get the cancer treatment. Though these two have different goals they end up together to safe their loved ones and each other. Will they be able to overcome the evil that surrounds them? Will they be able to help both Regan’s daughter and Colby’s sister? This is an “on the edge of your seat” novel filled with suspense, bad guys, a timeline, heart pounding moments , and some romance thrown in for good measure. In other words, a book that will hold your attention from beginning to end. I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

I just finished reading Taken Hostage by Jordyn Redwood. This book was one I didn’t want to put down. The author jumps into the action from the first page, reeling me in completely through the last page, and even then, I didn’t want it to finish. I love the way the author crafts her words – I felt like I was right in the middle of the action. The imagination of “what could happen” was wonderful. She kept the characters likeable (Regan and Colby) even while doing things one normally wouldn’t allow themselves to do if not in a situation that forced their hand. The twists and turns in the plot kept me reading to figure out how it was all going to end and I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t have it all figured out but the author kept me on the edge of my seat through the final pages. This author has a way with bringing a story to life as though I’m watching a movie instead of just reading a book.
