Book Review-In Control by John W. Mefford-Tour With Giveaway

About the book (provided by Beck Valley Book Tours)
A child is kidnapped, sending a mother into a panicked frenzy. It’s one of a dozen such crimes across central Texas, targeting those who live behind the pristine brick walls of master planned communities.

Ivy Nash hunts the kidnappers, but she quickly sees this case morph into something else entirely different…more dangerous, more twisted than anyone could imagine.

At the same time, the father of Ivy’s long-time friend pleads with her to do what no friend would ever want. But what she learns could shatter their worlds. An international drug trafficking ring. A professional hit. And one cover-up after another.

Secrets from the past are exposed, but how can Ivy separate reality from a smokescreen of falsehoods? With lives on the line, she can’t fail. The clock is ticking…
And I thought
I didn't realize I was getting into book 5 of this series.  When I was offered the option to read and review In Control I jumped on it mainly because it was toted as a Thriller which is my favorite kind of book to read.  
I love the fast paced suspence.  I love a good book with little or no language and very mainly closed door romance scenes.  
I was not disappointed.  

Even thought In Control was book 5 I was not confused or lost in the storyline.  The characters were introduced and all seemed to meld together within the story(s)

Within minutes there was a kidnapping and the suspense started. 
There were a couple of different storylines but they meddled together seamlessly.  

I enjoyed meeting each of the characters.  I did question how 
Ivy ended up with a 17 year old partner.  Cristina does have a mouth on her so there is a little language which didn't bother me because that was her character as a 17 year old.   I am sure that the relationship between Ivy and Cristina is played out in a previous book. 

There are other characters that are a central part of the story. 
Stan the policeman that Ivy has a working relationship with.  
His cousin Nick comes in from Boston and helps with the investigation.  

And then there's Zahara Ivy's bestie that is planning a wedding that daddy dear isn't too keen on.  Zeke the fiance might just not be who and what he tries to claim to be.  

Admittedly part way through I was a little disappointed who one of the villains turned out to be.  One tended to work a little warm spot into this reader.    But I was satisfied at the end when I got an inclining that maybe the supposed bad guy has a change of heart. 

I can't wait for book 6!
