"Casey Cox is still on the run after being indicted for murder. The hunt that began with her bloody footprints escalates, and she's running out of places to hide. Her face is all over the news, and her disguises are no longer enough. It's only a matter of time before someone recognizes her. Dylan Roberts, the investigator who once hunted her, is now her only hope. Terrifying attempts on Dylan's life could force Casey out of hiding. The clock is ticking on both their lives, but exposing the real killers is more complicated than they knew. Amassing the evidence to convict their enemies draws Dylan and Casey together, but their relationship has consequences. Will one life have to be sacrificed to protect the other?"--Dust jacket.
There is so much action here, and we really root against the evil in the form of the police, yes
Surprises abound here, I could hardly believe how far the evil spread, but our hero has come a long way in her journey with God, and we know that no matter what happens she is going to be with him.
You don’t want to miss this one, and do yourself a favor you won’t regret, read all three. These are awesome reads.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
Author: Terri Blackstock
My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
In the third and final novel, audiences get a thrilling conclusion to the characters of Casey Cox, Dylan Roberts, and Detective Keegan just to name a few. Casey
The hard part is that while Casey has been on the run and while Dylan is trying to clear her name, those who committed the murders are also closing in on Casey. Casey’s character is one of not just surviving but also seeing that justice is done. What Casey is learning is the difference between obtaining justice her way or letting go to let God do it His way, as well as take care of her. Dylan has been praying for Casey to come to faith because he knows that without the Lord she will never know true peace.
Each book in the If I Run Series that began with If I’m Found, then If I Run, concluding with If I Live is built upon the preceding book. When I began the series, each book was released a year apart, but I could dive right into each story, remembering where the last book left off and anxiously reading to see where Terri was going to take the plot and suspense! So, if you love suspense with faith, romance and climax, then here is a series just waiting for you to enjoy!
While we wait for whatever flows next from Terri’s pen, consider reading her other novels that have been published and available today!

The action scenes and the story are so good with some
Thanks to Zondervan Fiction and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
Dylan Roberts is a private
Casey, by this point in the series, is implicated so convincingly in Brent’s murder, it will take a crack lawyer to get her absolved. I love how Blackstock causes Casey to choose her unconventional lawyer.
Sometimes love can creep in when two souls are apart, yet communicating closely for a length of time. There isn’t actually a great amount of time that passes in the series, but the pressure is immense. Will this pressure negatively or positively affect Casey and Dylan’s relationship?
Written in first person, the pov switches mainly between Casey and Dylan. The language is deceptively simple, belying the intense and complicated action. This is not a book I would recommend as a standalone. It needs to be read as it was written, third in a desperately exciting series. Also, probably not best read late at night.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. I am under no obligation to provide a positive review and all opinions are solely my own.
I really enjoyed the interaction between Casey and Claire. It was nice to read how they shared their faith with each other. A new Christian like Casey really made Claire realize how we can get immune to what He really did for us. I thought this was a great side story that reminded Casey that she is not alone in trying to prove her innocence.
If I was ever in trouble I know I would call Dylan for help. He is one sharp person. Details don't get past him and he is determined to help prove Casey's innocence. Their lives are in turmoil as danger surrounds them. Who doesn't want Casey found alive? What does she know that could destroy someone's integrity, job and perhaps their freedom? This is Terri at her very best as she reveals pure terror and heartless people who will do anything to keep themselves out of jail.
This is one book that keeps you on your toes as explosions happen, death threats are spoken about and more bodies pile up. It's a race to the end as Casey and Dylan try to stay ahead of the master mind behind all that they have encountered.Well done Terri. You have given readers an ending that will not be forgotten. I'm sad to see the series end, but know the author is busy with a new book for her fans to grab up when it is hot off the press.
I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. The review is my own opinion.
Casey and Dylan are running out of time as they
Casey and Dylan are great characters. My book club has really enjoyed the journey they have taken throughout the three books. Although the two have faced more and more danger, their faith grew and strengthened. Both characters suffer from PTSD, and Blackstock does an admirable job detailing what sufferers go through. I liked how they were not actually fixed, but gained peace and strength through their relationship with Jesus. The faith journeys of the two are complex (plenty of valleys and mountain tops) and encouraging. For those who love a good romantic suspense story, If I Live is just the ticket. The action is fast-paced with plenty of twists. And the love story is sweet as Casey and Dylan hope for a future. Although we knew the identity of the bad guy(s), there were some surprises we didn’t see coming. That’s a big plus for the veteran suspense readers in my group.
We give two thumbs up to If I Live! Please note that the three books in this series are not standalone – you must read them in order. The good news is that all three are now available for hours of binge reading!

This is a very action paced series. Once you start, you will not stop. You will want to know what is going to happen with Casey and Dylan. Keegan makes a great villain as I cringed with every page the author mentions his name. This was so intense as the story unfolds. The more you get to the know the characters, the more scared you get for them. I devoured this series and I am so glad this was sent my way or I may have never picked it up.
Overall, I enjoyed this one just as much as book one and two. It was a great conclusion to the series. I will be picking more up from Terri Blackstock in the future.
The trilogy consists of [If I'm Found] [If I Run] and [If I Live]
Keegan's POV, although it came from a ruthless character, wasn't what really got me. The scene, about halfway through dealing with child abuse? That choked me up.
Finally, we are at the end of the long tunnel for Casey Cox who has been literally running for her life from two bad cops. Thankfully, she has Dylan, a PI, in her corner now. As she runs and hides from place to place, Dylan is busy trying to get the rest of the evidence she needs to prove her innocence. Along the way, many things happen that I won’t even begin to say because I don’t want to let any spoilers slip out.
If you’ve read the first two books, then I know you’ll want to read this book NOW! If you haven’t read this series, now’s the time to buy all three and read one after the other. You won’t be disappointed.
After you finish, make sure you read A Note From The Author. It is so good. She speaks truth and wraps all the feelings up and brings it home by helping us see that God holds all the answers to all our problems.
