If I Run
by Terri Blackstock
From the back cover:
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.

Casey knows the truth, but what good is it if no one will listen?
I enjoyed meeting the characters of If I Run. I felt drawn into their world from the first page. The fears, the compassion, and the confusion all seemed very real.
My greatest disappointment was to reach the end of the book and discover there’s not a conclusion. This is a series that is indeed an on-going story, so plan to read all and not just one… You’ll definitely want to keep reading! (Sorry, book club ladies!)
While If I Run is told from a Christian worldview, it is not “preachy.” The characters have realistic struggles in their faith, but these are smaller threads in the overall story.
I’m anxious to read the next in the series. Well-told, intriguing suspense!
