“If I Run”. Terri Blackstock’s latest novel is scheduled to release on February 14. Fans of action-packed Christian suspense will want to grab a copy as soon as possible, especially if they are already familiar with this author’s previous work. I personally found the story to be fairly unique and engaging. It definitely held my attention throughout and I was actually surprised when I reached its end so quickly.
The primary character’s first instinct is to run when she finds the body of her best friend and realizes he has been murdered. Suspecting that it could be connected to the research he has been doing for her, Casey’s fear overrides her desire to prove her innocence. Dylan Roberts, another good friend of the victim, is hired by the parents to find Casey and bring her back for trial. Eager to see justice for his friend, Dylan begins to search for Casey. Using his investigative skills, he soon begins to see a pattern that does not fit what he has been told.
I loved these characters. Although Casey is on the run and it would be in her best interest to lie low, she cannot seem to overcome her instinct to help others and that comes close to getting her into big trouble. I also liked the way Dylan was more interested in finding the truth than in just fulfilling his mission. Although there was absolutely no romance in this story, I couldn’t help hoping that Casey and Dylan might connect at some point (maybe in a sequel?).
There is ample danger and action in this fast-paced suspense to keep those pages turning. I really liked this book and am in hopes that there will be at least one more in this series. I really can’t wait to see what happens with Casey and Dylan.
Copies of this book were provided for review by LitFuse Publicity and the Fiction Guild.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Casey knows the truth. But it won’t set her free.
Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices. The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
