ABOUT THE BOOK (224 pages):


United States marshal Eli Cayne saved Julia Galloway's life once…and he's prepared to do it again. But his task would be easier if she could remember him—or the murderer who almost put her in an early grave and seems to be hunting her once more. To protect Julia from the latest threat against her life, Eli has to consider the possibility that he put an innocent man in jail. Julia has no memories of the serial killer called the Hangman, though, and no reason to trust Eli. But with the killer getting closer, she must work with Eli to confront her past—and the feelings growing between them.

Thanks, Jordyn, Phred, & Cheri, for the quick read!

“She didn’t want this to be her life­ – to be forced to run when she finally found some measure of peace and purpose again,” Julia Galloway’s mindset dictates in Jordyn Redwood’s novel, Fractured Memory.

Fractured Memory by Jordyn Redwood. Even though Ms. Redwood lets readers know that she wrote this romance/suspense book out of her comfort zone it was still a superb book and one I have recommended to others.
We are introduced to Julia Galloway, a pediatric ER nurse and Eli Cayne, preciously lead detective on a case involving Julia, who is now a US Marshal. Eli has been assigned as a Marshal to protect Julia again when the Hangman--a man who went around hanging health care professionals with a noose, hence the nickname Hangman, resurfaces. He didn't succeed before with Julia. Detective Eli saved Julia just moments before her death.

The book explodes with thrills from the first chapter when Eli has to keep Julia safe when law enforcements learn of a hit taken out on Julia. From carbon monoxide poisoning to an SUV being remotely controlled and plunging into an icy river, Julia and Eli save each other literally and figuratively while trying to escape the Hangman, also trying to figure out who he--or she--is.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

Note:  I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book from www.bookfun.org

Save a couple of hours and then delve into the wonderful novel of suspense, thrills and chills written by Jordyn Redwood.  Eli Cayne is a US Marshall tasked with protecting a witness named Julie Galloway who is a pediatric nurse.  However, Julie suffers from amnesia and can’t identify the man who attempted to kill her like other women by hanging.  For me, this was one of the best Love Inspired Suspense stories as the tension never let up and there were surprises in the plot when I least expected them.

Once I began the novel, I couldn’t stop reading!  The author does one amazing job not just with the plot but with the main characters, Eli and Julie.  I loved the bravery Julie begins to exert in probing her memories in order to be able to solve the crimes before another victim shows up.  The way the case turns out really surprised me not by identifying the “who” did it, but the why of the story.

I really enjoy Love Inspired Suspense books because they can take a reader on a quick and thrilling trip through danger, with faith and hope as the support posts that hold up the novel.  Please pick up this latest addition to the many Love Inspired books and share it with those you know who love a good book!

Mixed Feelings

A knock on the door by US Marshall Eli Cayne turns Julia Galloway's world back into the chaos she's been trying to escape. The Hangman is hunting her down, and despite Eli and his crew's best efforts, Julia's life isn't worth more than a plugged nickel.

All this would be bad enough, but Julia has faced the Hangman before, and won...sort of... She survived, but cannot remember the perp's face,whom she definitely saw. Nor can she remember why Eli seems to be so familiar in her life.

Fractured Memory by Jordan Redwood is definitely suspenseful and tense. Still,there were too many times I felt like the author had given obvious clues as to the murderer's identity,yet refused to let her characters do a natural follow-up. The writing was great, the plot line was great, but the author refused to let go of the puppet strings and let the characters choose their own destiny.

I would challenge others to read the book and decide for yourself- is it merely great, or is it one step beyond, outstanding?

Fractured Memory is a book that will grab your attention and not let go, if you enjoy action-packed, suspense filled with a little bit of romance thrown in adventures. Wonderfully written with characters that live out their faith in a natural way that isn’t forced.  The author started the book in a way that grabbed me and didn’t let go until the last page… in fact, I still haven’t let go.  I hope this isn’t a standalone book but instead I get to read more about Eli and Julia or the rest of the team. 


I can’t wait to read more from this author.  She is definitely a favorite of mine.  If you enjoy Dee Henderson’s books, you will enjoy Jordyn Redwood.

Jordyn Redwood has delivered another suspenseful story that her readers love. This mystery is filled with several twists, but eventually the evidence proves the truth. 


 US Marshal Eli Cayne and Julia Galloway had been put together when he had saved her life and assisted her in her recovery a few years previous, but now she is in danger again.  Unfortunately, she suffered a brain injury that caused her to lose some of her memory so she does not trust him.  How will he be able to save her from the reappearing rapist/murderer?


I enjoyed not only the twists and turns throughout the story, but how the author leads the reader to the conclusion of the case.


I received this free book from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review which is also posted on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goodreads.


Fractured Memory by Jordyn Redwood is a great action-packed book. The book is well written and the characters are believable. The suspense and adventure keeps your attention and doesn't let it go. Great book!

I was given this book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) in return for my honest review.

“Fractured Memory” was a page-turner from the very beginning. Julia Galloway is recovering from a nearly successful attempt on her life but she cannot remember anything about it or the man who came so close to killing her. She also has no memory of the man who rescued her – a man determined to protect her from a new threat against her.

The fast paced plot was filled with one breath-holding scene after another with so many twists and turns that I had no idea how the mystery would ever be resolved. In the midst of all the suspense and danger, it was fun to watch the relationship grow between Eli and Julia even if she didn’t remember him at all.

I thoroughly enjoyed “Fractured Memory” and eagerly anticipate reading many more suspense novels by the immensely talented Jordyn Redwood.




Fractured Memory by Jordyn Redwood is a fast paced action-packed thriller that grabs the reader's attention from the first page.  The characters are believable and well-developed.  This book held my interest from the beginning and I was sorry to see it end.  I did feel as if there should be a prequel to explain some of the things in the book as parts of it made me feel as if I were missing important details that I should know to help me better understand the scene I was reading.  Does that mean there's a prequel in the wings?  I hope so!  Having said that, I would give the book a 4 star review.  I definitely look forward to reading more books by this author.  

I received a copy of this book from the author and The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.  Reviews will be posted wherever I am able to do so.

Julia Galloway doesn’t remember US marshal Eli Cayne. She doesn’t remember being rescued by Eli mere seconds away from death. She doesn’t remember the last time she felt truly safe. What she does remember is waking from a coma with a nasty scar around her neck and being told that someone out there had tried to kill her by hanging. When Eli Cayne shows up on her doorstep with a story that a “hit” has been put out on her, she can’t believe that danger is still stalking her – until the bullets start to fly.

Eli, on the other hand, has no problem with his memory. He remembers discovering Julia moments from death and rescuing her. He remembers keeping tabs on her as she endured therapy, as she worked to get her nursing skills back and as she courageously stepped back into her career as a pediatric nurse. Half in love with her after the first rescue, he stays away since, as part of her protection team it’s inappropriate to get involved with her. When word comes down that a “hit package” is out with Julia as the target, Eli’s focus becomes keeping her alive.

As the attempts on her life begin to stack up, can Eli and Julia continue to dodge death long enough to figure out exactly where the threat is coming from and, just as importantly, why there is a threat in the first place? As the killer invades even the “safe houses”, can they follow the clues to The Hangman’s identity?

Once started, this book was tough to put down. I loved how dedicated to Julia’s safety Eli was. It was obvious from the beginning that he had some pretty strong feelings for her but instead of clouding his thinking they made him laser-focused on keeping her alive. It was also obvious that he wasn’t going to do anything about those feelings unless Julia made the first move. Her lack of memory placed a huge barrier between them but instead of forcing her memories, Eli simply did his job and made sure she was safe.

Some of my favorite books have been from the Love Inspired Suspense line. The strong faith element and the equally strong suspense element make Fractured Memory a great choice for readers of Christian fiction. There is enough sweet, gentle romance to satisfy the romance reader and plenty of teeth-clenching suspense for the suspense reader. I definitely recommend this!
