Review: If I Live by Terri Blackstock

About this Book

THE HUNT IS ALMOST OVER.

Casey Cox is still on the run after being indicted for murder. The hunt that began with her bloody footprints escalates, and she’s running out of places to hide. Her face is all over the news, and her disguises are no longer enough. It’s only a matter of time before someone recognizes her.

Dylan Roberts, the investigator who once hunted her, is now her only hope. Terrifying attempts on Dylan’s life could force Casey out of hiding. The clock is ticking on both their lives, but exposing the real killers is more complicated than they knew. Amassing the evidence to convict their enemies draws Dylan and Casey together, but their relationship has consequences. Will one life have to be sacrificed to protect the other?

With If I Live, Terri Blackstock takes us on one more heart-stopping chase in the sensational conclusion to the If I Run series.

About the Author

Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist.

Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in a U.S. Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual “new kid,” her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.

Recent books include Truth Stained Lies (Book 1 of her Moonlighters Series), and her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Predator, Double Minds, the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.

In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they’re valued by God and that their trials have a purpose.

My Review

WOW! Fantastic finish to a fantastic series. Blackstock once again gives an excellent story. Suspense, romance, and okay, I’ll say it, Happy Endings!

By the third book in the series you can’t help but love Casey and Dylan. You want them to win.

I would recommend this story to my friends and family that enjoy good suspense. I do recommend you read all the books in the series, in order. You would probably enjoy it only reading book three, but to totally appreciate it, you want to read it as a set.

Review: If I’m Found by Terri Blackstock

About this Book

Casey Cox is still on the run, fleeing prosecution for a murder she didn’t commit. Dylan Roberts—her most relentless pursuer—is still on her trail, but his secret emails insist he knows the truth and wants to help her. He’s let her escape before when he had her in his grasp, but trust doesn’t come easily.

As Casey works to collect evidence about the real murderers, she stumbles on another unbearable injustice: an abused child and a suicidal man who’s also been falsely accused. Casey risks her own safety to right this wrong and protect the little girl from her tormentors. But doing so is risky and may result in her capture—and if she’s captured, she has no doubt she’ll be murdered before she ever steps foot in a jail cell.


My Review

I’ve been waiting a year for this book! And was it ever worth it! The story picks up shortly after the end of book one and the action keeps pounding!

Once again Terri Blackstock gives readers a fast paced adventure. Casey Cox is running for her life from crooked cops who killed her father. She is a smart and resource girl and it’s fun to watch her get out of scraps. She also has a big heart to help the less fortunate.  In this story she steps into danger on behalf of two hurting people.

I love the secondary story line with Dylan’s PTSD. It’s been eye opening to see what many of our vets go through. It’s also sad. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to Dylan when the series ends.

The story – AMAZING! Lots of action as Blackstock looks at situations that happen too often in life. And how our system often persecutes innocent people while guilty ones seem to get away with it.

If you read book one of the series you will definitely want to follow what happens next with Casey.

I do recommend reading the books in order. You might be able to pick up this book and enjoy it. But to get the fullness of the story you want to read book one.
