"Is Dylan hunting Casey to prosecute her or protect her? Casey Cox 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 that 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 tormenters. But doing so is risky and just 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."--Jacket
A thriller with an innocent on the run and corruption in the police department.
It's an intense story and I found myself anxious in key moments. Very well written.
It's not a complete story. The book ends but it's obviously only Part 1.
The praying to God and mention of
Will I read more by this author? Yes, I want the ending, but if it's a trilogy or more, I will wait for the last book to be released before reading more. I want a clean ending. This was a fantastic thriller. Breathtaking. But it doesn't have a conclusion.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.
This was definitely a suspenseful book. There were plenty of hold your breath moments going on. Car chases, jumping out windows to escape, child abuse, drug dealers with guns, cars being run off the road, innocents being brought in for questioning, disguises, changing hotels nightly - sometimes twice a night, etc. I mean we are talking some serious action going on in this book. The only thing I didn't like - there's a book 3. Casey is still on the run. However, if the author keeps the suspense and the drama going like she has - it will be worth the wait!
Thanks to Zondervan Fiction for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
Can you imagine looking at the face of evil and yet these are the people that you are supposed to rely on when there is trouble, members of law enforcement. Makes me so sad that the people you are supposed to trust are so untrustworthy, and I do realize that these are the rare few, but does one apple spoil the bushel, lets sure hope no. All the while I was reading this, I kept wanting justice for all, and yet for some it does come to late, how very sad.
I am really pulled into this story, and highly recommend the first two books in this series, you won’t be disappointed, and you will be waiting for book three along with me.

Author: Terri Blackstock
My rating 5 out of 5 stars.
If I Run is the first novel in the series and was published in 2016. Now, If I’m found is out this year with the exciting conclusion, If I Live, coming out March
Casey Cox is a woman we meet in the first book who is running for her life after finding her friend dead. While trying to keep under the radar, Casey ends up getting involved in other peoples’ troubles and longs to help them out. The hardest part for Casey is trusting someone with information she has about her own father’s past that will have ripple effects some people just don’t want to have happen. Readers will follow Casey as she tries to stay a step or two ahead of the man who has been sent to capture her and bring her back to face justice.
What makes it even harder for Casey to stay under the radar is her passion to help others out of deep trouble even if it means she will be caught and probably punished for a crime she didn’t commit. Casey is used to trusting herself and carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, but Dylan Roberts just might be the one to help her share her burden while getting justice.
Terri Blackstock has written some very engaging stories that audiences won’t soon forget no matter how many books they read in a short time. While I hate to wait another year before the conclusion, I can say it is well worth it because the suspense never lets up! While you’re waiting for the last book to come out, if you haven’t read some of this author’s other stories, plunge right in, pick a couple and enjoy!

The action is top notch and it is an adrenaline rush to the end. I did like the author talking about PTSD. She did a great job of allowing a character to deal with PTSD and the difficult effects it has on someone. I love how the author takes on subjects that others shy away from and brings them to the forefront. Crime happens everyday and sometimes a person is accused of something they didn't do. I especially liked that Casey got involved with an abuse case. People are so ready to point fingers and place blame without investigating. Casey is someone to be reckoned with when she stands up for justice . The book has everything you want in an action/thriller and I love how the author continues to keep readers guessing and on the edge of their seats with intense drama. I highly recommend you read the first book which lays the foundation for the series. I eagerly await the conclusion of this series.
I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. The review is my own opinion.
Most of our discussion revolved around Casey’s motivations — her need to find the truth and her innate sense of right and wrong. Casey is beginning to respond to God’s promptings, and we found that intriguing as well. While If I’m Found is adrenaline-laced suspense, the character development is well done. We loved the good guys, Dylan especially, and hated the bad guys. Because this one is the middle offering in a trilogy, there is still plenty of what-ifs. We had fun coming up with scenarios for the last book. It will be interesting to see if any of our theories come true.
For fans of Blackstock, If I’m Found is another winner. It gets our book club’s stamp of approval!
I love how Casey puts her own safety on the line more than once when she is convinced that someone else needs help. Casey is
My one disappointment was I did not realize (silly me, don't most book series contain three books?) that everything would not wrap up at the end of If I'm Found.
I highly recommend this book. I obtained a complimentary copy from the publisher and NetGalley. This did not affect my opinions, which are solely my own.
But the suspense and the thriller of this book is outstanding. can't get enough.
How far will Keegan go to nail Casey? How far will Dylan go to save her? I'm just dying to read the last installment in the series. I want to be satisfied, but I know that life doesn't always work out the way we want it, but it ALWAYS works out the way God plans.
I'm ready for book three. Bring. It. On!
Book two does involve some very serious plot twists that I did not see coming.
This one does focus a little more around church and God than book one, but I still do not feel it was too overwhelming.
I did not really like how the romance happens, and wish there was a little more build up around it even if was predicted to happen.
Overall, I enjoyed this one just as much as book one. I am excited to see how this will all end.
I received a copy of this book for free. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.
I think this book was much better than the first one. The main character did not seem so dumb. Not that her choices were always the best, but she seems to actually think the stuff through before acting on her feelings. The story did not seem as forced as the first one did. I’m not sure I can
