When lives are shattered, can the bond of friendship survive the suspicion of guilt?
Just as she feels her world caving in around her, Ivy Nash realizes that there are no guarantees in life…for her or for those she cares about.
Ivy must protect an adorable little girl from a wealthy egomaniac hell-bent on revenge, as a monster from Cristina’s past returns with a fury.
When the dust settles, will those that live have any life to speak of? And will Ivy ever be able to stop looking over her shoulder for the man she knows will never stop until she’s destroyed?
“Rife with deceit and deception and characters that leap off the page, this story is told with confidence through a sure hand, engaging both the mind and the heart. A compelling treat.” — Steve Berry, New York Times Bestselling Author
“I love the way that Mefford writes, seamlessly jumping between characters and time frames with no confusion, and he is extremely descriptive of the setting . You almost feel like you are watching a movie instead of reading a book!” — Hilary Mahoney, Elusive Red Tiger
“Mefford wrote her character with depth and you can feel her passion for her job throughout the entire book.” — Shelly Maynard, Lynchburg Mama

Q&A with author John W. Mefford:
Q: What do the Ivy Nash Thrillers have to do with the Redemption Thriller Series?
JWM: The Ivy Nash Thrillers comprise the second sub-series in the Redemption Thriller Series. The Alex Troutt Thrillers are the first sub-series. While I’ll eventually write a series that connects the major characters and plots from all the sub-series, you don’t have to read the AT books prior to the IN books. But I have to say, the AT thrillers are darn good.
Q: So you’re saying you don’t have to read the Alex Troutt Thrillers before the Ivy Nash Thrillers?
JWM: Nope. While a few of the characters might occasionally overlap between the series, they can be read as stand-alone. And then I’ll wrap everything up in a final set of six novels that connects all of the main characters and stories from each sub-series. If you haven’t read any of the Alex Troutt thrillers yet, you can try out the first three at a pretty nice discount. Just search for Alex Troutt Box Set.
Q: Can you give some insight into how Ivy Nash might connect to Alex Troutt down the line?
JWM: Sure…and then I’ll send over a hit squad. Seriously, I’ll be sprinkling in a few clues along the way for those who pay close attention to the details, but it will all come together in that final six novels of the Redemption Thriller Series. And it will be explosive and gut-wrenching at the same time.
Q: How many different sub-series are you planning to have in the Redemption Thriller Series?
JWM: Right now, I see four sub-series in the Redemption Thriller Series, with six novels in each. It’s the most challenging and fulfilling creative endeavor I’ve undertaken. I hope you enjoy the journey.

I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
IN Doubt starts with a very broken Ivy, she has sunk into a kind of depression following the events of book 3 that saw her come face to face with her past and kidnapper Milton Webber. She is paranoid, jumpy and far from the strong Ivy we have come to love.
ECHO is suffering as she has no desire to take on new cases instead she sits at home waiting on what she believes is the inevitable return of Milton.
That is until Christina gives her a shake and gets her on a job looking after a little girl called Emma who they had saved a few weeks prior from her mother who was trying to sell her at a truck stop – who does that!? This is not a simple babysitting stint for Ivy and Christina and with the help of Stan and his cousin Nick from the FBI they untangle a massive web of lies, deceit and depravity surrounding Emma’s father Dillon.
At the same time Christina is dealing with ghosts from her past that lead her to being accused of murder – this really tests the bonds of friendship between her and Ivy, who has a shadow of doubt regarding Christina’s innocence.
IN Doubt is a little more subdued book compared to the previous books killings but it was still every bit a fantastic gripping read.
Book 4 can’t come quick enough!
