The characters are believable and the secondary stories in both books create extra tension.
I normally get a series when they are complete so I can read one after the other, so am really disappointed that I have to wait for the next one.
There is the theme of trust as building a case against the corrupt police continues. Trusting anyone whilst on the run is nigh on impossible. One has to rely on instincts and being resourceful to survive.
At times life makes little sense. Bad things happen to good people and yet God does not step in. However "Jesus never promised to heal believer's burdens, but He did vow to carry them." Only when looking back on events can people see how God helped to protect them at the time
Prayer is important. It links us to God. We can pray for others whether they believe or not. What matters is that we believe.
PTSD is a powerful topic in the novel. Sufferers continue to suffer for years after a traumatic event. Meeting at a support group with others may help but the fears are still there when you close your eyes. "I do fear sleep. I want to avoid it." Too often suffers feel defined by their condition. "Until a few weeks ago PTSD defined me." They need to find a purpose. They need to keep fighting even though just getting up in the morning can be hard.
The novel shows that there is a fight between good and evil in the world. The love of money, power, drugs or alcohol can take a hold and corrupt characters. Priorities become blurred or disappear altogether. There are still good people in the world who will do the right thing to protect the innocent, even at the risk to themselves.
Family is important. Unscrupulous people will take advantage of family bonds to hold others to ransom.
Terri Blackstock has produced yet another marvellous plotline. The reader is grabbed from the outset and completely hooked. The ending leaves the reader hanging on in wild anticipation for book three in the series.
A fabulous read as always.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
Casey is on the run fleeing from prosecution for a murder she didn't commit. It is quite a tense read at times, but Casey is extremely clever and always seems to be a few steps ahead of the police. I love Casey; she has a natural caring side to her and doesn't like to see bad and unfair things happen to innocent people. So when she comes across a Bible and sees a suicide note written in it, she feels the need to locate its owner. In doing so she can't help but get involved and try to seek justice for those who have been wronged. Even though she is in extreme danger of getting caught she just can't let it go.
Dylan has been hired to find Casey and work along with the police, it doesn't take him long to realise that Casey is not the real murderer, she has been well and truly set up.
Can he get to Casey before the corrupt police do? Will Casey trust him or does she think it is a trap to get to her? My emotions were teetering on the edge at times when they got close to her. I was praying they didn't find her.
This is a new author to me and I know perhaps I should have read book one first but to be honest it was written so well I didn't have to, I just fell straight into the story and stayed until I finished it. I can't wait for book three as it's not over for Casey yet she still has a lot of evidence to find. I will be definitely one clicking the next book, and won't hesitate to read anything by this author in the future.

Casey is pursued by Dylan Roberts, an interesting Private Investigator who suffers from PTSD after a spell in Afghanistan. Does Dylan believe that Casey is guilty or can Casey gain his trust? The relationship between the two of them unravels and Casey has to prove that two bent cops actually need investigating!
This thriller has all the elements of suspense, high emotions, tension, even religion and possibly romance. Coupled with the main plot, Casey becomes involved in solving another crime involving a rather suicidal man, an abused child and some evil persecutors. She tends to put others before herself, even at her own peril.
I awarded four stars because I hadn't read the previous book in this series. Therefore, I recommend that you should read 'If I Run' first to gain more of an insight into the characters.

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 tormenters. 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.
This is the second book in the "If I Run" series by Terri Blackstock. It is important that you read the first book to understand this one. Casey is still on the run from the crooked cops that framed her for murder. In this book we find Casey searching for the God that Dylan has told her about. Without God Dylan would have called it quits a long time ago. He suffers from PTSD. AWt the end of the book Casey is still on the run. This is the only negative thing about this series. The books don't end.
The story itself wraps up. But Casey is still on the run. So, therefore, if you want to see how the story ends you have to read the next book. I dislike books like that.
If you are a fan of Terri Blackstock you will enjoy this book. I would have given it a higher rating if there had been an ending.
Terri Blackstock delivers another wonderful story that kept me reading into the early morning hours and turning the pages to see what would happen. With If I'm Found, the small story plot that Casey finds herself involved in isn't as intimate as the previous book. She is more of that outside observer who makes a difference through secondary resources.
Again, I am enjoying a character who is feminine and yet not helpless. Casey Cox is portrayed as a strong Southern woman who doesn't cower before an adversary. I can't help but feel my heart speed up with every close call.
Dylan is a man I'm beginning to admire greatly. His own shortcomings make me more human and real to me. He isn't this chiseled, perfect specimen swooping in to save the damsel. He's a man of God determined to bring justice to the wrongs committed.
Terri Blackstock also portrays the mind of a soulless man well without giving in to compromise and using vulgar or coarse language. This heightens the tension of the story and gives it an elevation that made me read faster and spurred me on this suspenseful journey.
If I'm Found superseded If I Run. And I'm extremely excited, but still willing to be patient, to read the next installment and see how the story will conclude. As always, another great book by a truly wonderful author.
If you haven’t read If I Run - stop reading IMMEDIATELY and RUN out and get a copy - or easier, download to your e reader. That’s because If I’m Found doesn’t dilly dally with any “Previously on . . . “ but jumps straight into the action regardless of how many months ago one read the first instalment. I love the confidence in that - of course we will remember what happened before, that’s how exciting it was!!
Casey Cox is back along with her nemesis Dylan Roberts, but with more and more evidence beginning to convince Dylan that Casey isn’t the hardened fugitive he once imagined. This thawing long distance relationship forges a uneasy alliance between the hunter and the hunted. It makes for a taunt adrenaline laced tale which is a story one wants to plough through as quickly as possible rather than saver. This reminded me of the TV series 24 on speed. Just when you pause to catch you breath - the next scene leaves you breathless all over again.
Personally it’ll be a hard 11 months until If I Live releases - but I’m sure the tension will hold on out and it will all play out to a satisfying conclusion. No pressure then!!.
