If I Run

Blackstock, Terri. If I Run. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan. 2016.


Deciding to run rather than be framed for a murder she did not commit, Casey Cox is certain to be scared. Trying hard not to leave any footprints of her direction, Casey doesn’t realize veteran Dylan Robert is almost upon her. While both deal with similar symptoms from their pasts, though only one will win in the end, If I Run sets up the pace perfectly for the characters racing to a finish. Suspense, reality, murder, dysfunction and hope all combine for a thrilling story from New York Times Best-selling author, Terri Blackstock.

In a unique manner for this author, If I Run shares the unfolding story from a first-person point of view, alternating between the main characters. With a subtle dose of faith mingled between suspense, action, emotions, mystery and a cliff-hanger at the end, Terri Blackstock does an excellent job of keeping the pages turning quickly while investing the reader emotionally. As the first of a new trilogy, the gracious end notes from the author in this book add even more. Compelling cover too!
