I am an avid reader who loves sharing the stories I have read with my fellow readers. I enjoy reading Mystery, Legal and Political thrillers, Horror and all types of romance.
Wow! What a ride. I enjoyed every book I have read by John W. Mefford and could not wait to dive into Break IN. True to form; Mefford delivered a fast paced and suspenseful story that was filled with lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing to the end.
Ivy Nash has once again found herself embroiled in a criminal investigation, which involves kidnapping. She is in the process of trying to secure office space when she was hired by an elderly man to find is grandson who had been kidnapped. However, as soon as that one is found a next one was taken. Are both kidnappings related and if so why is this man’s family being targeted? Ivy’s determination to obtain the answers to these questions, would lead her on a road riddled with danger and have her reliving her worst nightmare.
The story started out a bit confusing. At first, I was not sure what was happening, but as I delved deeper into the story, the events became clearer. I enjoyed how the story unfolded. Just when I thought I figured out who was behind the kidnapping, Mefford, shakes things up and I find myself re-thinking my original theory. There was enough suspense to keep me on the edge of my seat, especially near to the end when things became more intense.
As usual, I had fun with the characters. New characters were introduced that were not easy to figure out if they were good or bad. Of course, the truth as to who they were and their motives were not revealed until near the end. Ivy was her usual self in this instalment. An advocate for unfortunate children. I admire her strength and tenacity. She has been through a lot, but she does not intend to slow down.
Break IN was an exciting addition to the Ivy Nash series. The story was well paced, intriguing and riveting. If you enjoy thrillers that keeps you guessing from beginning to end then you will enjoy this series.
