If I Run
If I Run - Terri Blackstock This book is good with the suspense and mystery. My interest didn't waver with wanting to find out what was really happening. The puzzle of Casey's past and why she is hiding unwound at an appropriate pace. Dylan's background is interesting also. I liked the two main characters (the book alternates between their two voices). Casey did seem too good to be true often. She was on the run for her life but took the time to clean a public restroom and be the bastion of morality in every situation. Also, I like Christian fiction, but I did find some of the times when witnessing or preaching was added to be odd and ill-timed. The police procedures didn't seem realistic, but, overall, the story was a good experience for me. I was interested in finding out what eventually happens, and I had planned on getting the next book until I read the author's note at the end. I would have probably given this book a 3 star rating, but for the author's note. It ruined my entire experience. If it was written elsewhere, I wouldn't include it in my rating, but since the author added it to the end of the story, it is including in my rating of this book.

If I'm Found
If I'm Found (If I Run Series) - Terri Blackstock

Casey Cox is still on the run. She's blown her cover, and will need to start again. Dylan is still looking for her, or is he?

I liked this book less than If I Run, when I'm honest. I felt a bit like the story was stretched out too much and it should have just been one book. Also, If I'm Found just follows the same story as If I'm Run. There's another case which Casey really feels she just has to solve even though at this point she knows she's not just a wanted criminal but also that her life is in immediate danger. Besides, I got the feeling this book was much more preachy than the previous one, and I never like it when something gets pushed at me.

It was still a quick read, with enough suspense to keep it going. But I was slightly disappointed.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

If I Run
If I Run - Terri Blackstock

Casey Cox is covered in her best friend's blood and on the run. Sure she's being framed but unsure as to whom she's taken the fall for, she gives hiding a try.

I was pleasantly surprised with If I Run, it certainly kept me entertained. The story is dual POV of Casey and Dylan, the guy hired to find her. This gives a nice insight in both the hunter and the hunted. A minor annoyance was that Dylan seemed to be the only one who was any good at finding people, even though the complete US police force seemed to be looking for her.

There was enough variation to keep it interesting, but since the book closed with a very open ending, I will have to read the sequel to see where it is going.

If I'm Found (If I Run Series) - Terri Blackstock

This is the second book in the Casey Cox "If I Run" series and I really like this series. However, I am not liking the fact that this poor girl has been running for two books now. Can somebody please give this girl a break? Ha! JK Actually, I would really like to see that Keegan guy get his just desserts - what an A$$.

This was definitely a suspenseful book. There were plenty of hold your breath moments going on. Car chases, jumping out windows to escape, child abuse, drug dealers with guns, cars being run off the road, innocents being brought in for questioning, disguises, changing hotels nightly - sometimes twice a night, etc. I mean we are talking some serious action going on in this book. The only thing I didn't like - there's a book 3. Casey is still on the run. However, if the author keeps the suspense and the drama going like she has - it will be worth the wait!

Thanks to Zondervan Fiction for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.

If I Run - Terri Blackstock

#IFIRUN  AVAILABLE NOW!  PULSE RACING FROM PAGE 1  4 STARS!  @TerriBlackstock  @ThomasNelson  I was definitely engrossed in this book. I felt my blood pressure rise from the very beginning. I even had moments when I was yelling at Casey, "no, don't do that!". I mean I just sped through this book hoping that she didn't get caught and what she did in the end, that was awesome.

Apparently, this is just book 1 in the series and I'm glad. I think Casey is going to make a great character to write some books around. She's smart and got her stuff together. I'm wishing that I could go on to book 2 right now. Ugh! This is one series for your TBR pile and it's just starting!

Thanks Zondervan and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
