Review of If I Run: An Awesome New Thriller from Terri Blackstock

I've always been a fan of Terri Blackstock's mystery/suspense/thriller reads, and I was very excited about her newer book If I Run. I had heard good things and expected another great thriller. I wasn't disappointed.

Casey Cox is on the run. She found her best friend dead, and she's worried that she'll be prosecuted for his death. This is because she knows secrets. Her friend was in the process of investigating what she knew when he was killed.

Dylan Roberts in an honorably discharged veteran who was also a very good friend of Brent, the victim. He is hired by Brent's family to find Casey. But as he searches and gets to know more about her, he begins to wonder, too, if there is more going on in the situation. And he begins to question Casey's guilt.

The book is extremely fast-paced. I've always loved the fact that Terri Blackstock writes in short chapters. Because of this, I find myself reading and reading and not wanting to put the book down.

The characters are extremely compelling. I found myself really liking Dylan and Casey and thinking about what they were doing and if they were safe even while I wasn't reading. (Don't laugh. If you're a reader, you'll understand.)

I won't spoil anything, but If I Run ends in a tremendous cliff hanger. There has to be more coming. I don't always like dramatic endings, but I do admit that it makes me want to come back and read another book!

I loved If I Run. I give it 5 stars and a PG-13 rating for violence and criminal activity. You can find the book on Amazon here.
