Only problem? It was on my Kindle. And somehow the nail-biting moments always coincided with that little announcement about turning off all electrical devices. REALLY? My Kindle? As if that's going to cause a problem.
I obeyed. Begrudgingly.
But every minute that I was allowed, I read Proof and I LOVED it! (did I already mention that?)
Now, I read a lot of suspense, and I watch a lot of suspense. I always have. So it's unusual for me to find one that stumps me as much as this book did. But Jordyn matched her medical background with her writing talent and created a well-carved story that keeps you on your toes. She even has the "bad-guy reveal" mid-way through the story and it only escalates the tension. Both the characters and the readers scratch their heads wondering HOW he got away with his crimes.
Here's the back-cover blurb:
Dr. Lilly Reeves is a young, accomplished ER physician with her whole life ahead of her. But that life instantly changes when she becomes the fifth victim of a serial rapist. Believing it's the only way to recover her reputation and secure peace for herself, Lilly sets out to find--and punish--her assailant. Sporting a mysterious tattoo and unusually colored eyes, the rapist should be easy to identify. He even leaves what police would consider solid evidence. But when Lilly believes she has found him, DNA testing clears him as a suspect. How can she prove he is guilty, if science says he is not?
While the subject matter in Proof can at times create a hard read, Jordyn manages to weave her faith into the story in amazing ways. She gives her characters hope in the midst of difficult situations and delivers a thrilling ride to her readers. Just an FYI: This book is a bit on the edgier side of Christian Fiction, so if you mainly love sweet romances (here! here! I love those too!) then this may not be the book for you. But if you love suspense, mystery, or thrills, this is one you'll want to pick up.
Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!
