Don’t Run from “If I Run” by Terri Blackstock

About this 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’ve 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.

My Review

I’m not sure there is anyone better than Terri Blackstock. She tells this story from two perspectives, Casey, who has been accused of murdering her best friend, Brent, and Dylan, former soldier suffering from PSTD and Brent’s childhood friend. These two perspectives makes this an engaging story that is also fast paced.

I love Casey and Dylan. Casey is searching for the truth and begins to find more than she bargained for. Dylan is strong and a man of faith. But he’s also broken from what he saw in war. He quickly discovers things are not what they seem and he is determined to learn the truth, regardless the cost.

The story is very good. The author reveals little pieces of the past at the right time and drives the story forward. We do realize pretty early in the story who the villain is but that doesn’t hurt the story.

The only thing I didn’t like about this book was the ending only because there are so many unanswered questions. I can hardly wait for book two.

YES I would buy this for friends and families. Terri Blackstock fans will not be disappointed. If you’ve never read Blackstock this is a great introduction to her work.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I’ve been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It’s been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
