If I'm Found by Terri Blackstock

I am a huge fan of Christian Suspense novels and last year I chose a book off my Kindle to read and completed it in less than a day. That book was Terri Blackstock's book, If I Run, (read my review here). which was the first book in her "If I Run" series. Needless to say, I was hooked. Not just on the series but on Ms. Blackstock's writing. 



     Casy Cos 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.
     In this riveting sequel to the USA TODAY bestseller If I Run, evil lurks, drawing Casey out of the shadows...but there is light shining in the darkness.


While you could read this book without reading the first book in the series, If I Run, I wouldn't advise it as the this book is a continuation of the first book, and because the first book was so good you really must read it first.

From the first sentence, "The police lights in my rearview mirror almost destroy me." to the very last I was catapulted into a fast paced, sit on the edge of your seat, good guys versus bad guys pursuit that literally left me breathless. Had I had the time I would have read it in one sitting as it was one of those books you just don't want to put down.

Casey is the heroine of the series that has been wrongfully accused of the murder of her friend. She seems to stay just one step ahead of the real killers while trying to gather evidence that will not only clear her name but put the killers behind bars. Enter, Dylan, while he has been hired to find her, he has realized she is innocent and is now using his job to find her as a way to help clear her of everything she has been accused of doing.

In the first book, Ms. Blackstock gave us a sub-plot that was full of danger and helped create more mystery into the story line. Don't worry, in If I Run, she has added another sub-plot that takes the reader into a different direction allowing the reader to see even deeper into Casey's heart. 

I loved the Christian thread that was woven into the story as well because it let the reader see that there is hope even in your darkest of hours. 

As mentioned before, you will want to read the first book in the series as this is a continuation series. In fact, the reader is left hanging as far as the major plotline. However, the subplot is tied up quite nicely and the relationship between Casey and Dylan, well, lets just say, I was happy with the way they left things...for now anyway. I can hardly wait for book three, If I Live, which releases in March 2018.

I would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a good sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspense novel. It is fast paced and heart pounding and well worth your time between the pages.

I would like to thank BookLook Bloggers and Zondervan for my copy of If I'm Found. I received my copy for free in order to read it and give my honest review.

On a 5-Star Scale = 5 Stars!!!!!
