Book Review - POISON by Jordyn Redwood



Poison: A Novel
Did you read Jordyn Redwood's first book in the Bloodline Trilogy, Proof? If you did (or not), you might recognize the name Lucent. Lucent was the presumably hallucinatory man who forced John Samuals to kill his family. The only two to survive the massacre are Keelyn and Raven, Samuals' step-daughter and daughter.

Keelyn sits in her favorite eatery, Ruby's Diner, waiting for Lee, her fiance' and a police officer, when a stranger takes the seat at the counter beside her. He claims to be Lucent. Then he informs her he brought a child here, Raven's two-year-old daughter, to give to her and that if Keelyn tried to find him or Raven he will return and kill both her and the child.

The stranger leaves, and Lee arrives just as another woman hurries into the diner to tell him about a car in the parking lot containing two people: the driver is apparently passed out, and a child is crying in the back seat.

The driver turns out to be John Samuals' former psychologist. The crying child is Raven's daughter.

As the story unfolds, deceptions, murders, and mysterious deadly illnesses abound. Keelyn doesn't know who to believe, where her sister might be, or how to keep the baby safe from someone who wants to harm her.

I have to give this four and a half thumbs up. Just don't begin reading it at bedtime. I can tell you from experience you will be suffering from sleep deprivation the following day.

Poison can be purchased from Christian Book Distributors, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobel. Click on the name of the store you want for a link to a place where you can buy the book. Or click HERE to go to Jordyn Redwood's website.
