If I Run (Review)
This review is for the book "If I Run" by Terri Blackstock. My grandmother got me into Terri Blackstock years ago, and I have always enjoyed her books. This one was certainly no exception.
In this novel we are introduced to Casey, who is cleaning up a murder scene, but readers know right away that she did not commit the murder. For whatever reason, though, Casey is sure that she is going to be sought after for committing this murder, so she goes on the run right away. Through a series of events, Dylan Roberts is hired to find Casey and bring her home so she can be tried for her alleged crime. Casey spends the entire book running for her life and hiding. The reader finds out through Dylan's investigation that something fishy is going on. Dylan begins to believe that Casey did not commit the murder and may even be in danger from people who are supposed to keep her safe.
I loved this book. It kept me on edge. I loved Casey's character. She is wanted for murder and yet she just cannot help but get in situations where she is helping people and even putting her life on the line to help others. Both Casey and Dylan are incredibly smart and they make a great team - even though they technically aren't supposed to be on the same side.
The end of the book really got me because it was a bit of a cliffhanger. Terri Blackstock, please tell me this is the first book in a series! I HAVE to find out what happens next!!
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
