Like the previous books in the series, IN Control was an exciting and thrilling read. The story began with what appears to be a kidnapping, but as the events, unfolded Ivy would discover there was more to the case than she originally thought. Just when she thought, things could not get any more complicated she finds herself embroiled in another case involving her best friend. At first both case appear unrelated, But the more Ivy digs she would realise both cases are connected.
The story started out with a steady pace, but as it progressed, it slowly developed, culminating in a fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping end. It may not have been as fast paced as the previous books, but there were aspects of the story that were intense and thrilling.
Secrets, both past and present drove the plot. These secrets had not only personal implications, but also national and international. These secrets had the propensity to hurt many persons in ways they may never recover from. Ivy found herself enmeshed in this nest of secrets. It is not a place she wanted to be, but if it meant keeping her best friend safe, she would suck it up and do what she had to do.
This is not of one of those mysteries that is easily solved. Every incident that occurred took me by surprise. It kept me guessing until the end and there were aspects of the story that kept me on the edge of my seat.
As usual, Ivy has proven to be a fearless, perceptive and determined heroine. Once she takes on a case, she puts out all the stops to ensure her client’s satisfaction. The supporting characters played their part in helping to move the story along. I had difficulty separating the villains from the good guys. It had me wondering who was in control. Characters from the Alex Troutt series provided assistance in this installment.
However, although I enjoyed this installment, a few things did not sit well with me. I can’t go into all the issues as this would lead to giving away the story. However, I can state the main issue I had. This had to do with the kidnappings. I am not clear about how Ivy discovered the identity of the mastermind behind the kidnappings. I was surprised to see her questioning a character who never appeared until that moment. That aspect of the story lacked fluidity and left me scratching my head as I tried to figure out what went down.
This is a great addition to the series and I can’t wait to see what is next in store for Ivy and her friends. If you are a fan of engaging mysteries that will take you on a roller coaster ride, then you will enjoy this series.
One of the cases involves Zahara's father - Z is Ivy's best friend - who asks her to investigate her new fiance, and you just know that something is going to go down in this book that will hurt a lot of people, but how the two cases are entwined will actually throw you into a depraved world of child kidnapping and much worse!
Honestly each book in this series just keeps on getting better and better! What is going to happen next for Ivy is anyone's guess, but I really don't want this series to end! It was good to get more on the connection between this series and the Alex Trout series as this involved more help from Nick - Stan's cousin and partner with Alex in the FBI.
I am not sure if am ready for the next book IN the End, as I am not ready to give up Ivy just yet - I thought I loved Alex but her and Ivy are on most definitely on par!
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
Mefford is starting to pull the strands of his thrillers together and you can sense that they are building up to a climactic finish involving all the crime solving characters we have come to love.
Ivy is back and this time her case is uncomfortably close to home. Could the fiance of her best friend be all that he says he is? Or has he links to a nefarious underworld where a psychopathic drug lord rules the roost and doesn't care who he hurts?
Supported by her chopsy but lovable side-kick, Cristina, Ivy also takes on the case of the kidnappers who fake child abductions to get their hands on the money - but where exactly are they getting their information from and how do they know who to target?
There is even an appearance from Alex Troutt's partner Nick and Alex herself makes her presence felt.
Ivy is potentially Alex's equally ballsy and intelligent younger partner and putting the two of them together is going to make a very enjoyable read.
Like all the previous thrillers, In Control can be read as a stand alone novel, but if you don't read the back catalogue and immerse yourself in Mefford's world of crime, you really are missing out.
I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
