Review: If I'm found by Terri Blackstock


In this riveting sequel to the USA TODAY bestseller If I Run, evil lurks, drawing Casey out of the shadows . . . but there is light shining in the darkness.

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 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 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.

My Thoughts:

If I’m Found the long awaited sequel to If I Run was certainly not a disappointment (at least not to me). Picking up right where the first book left off, we follow Casey Cox as she heads to a new area to settle down, since her cover has been blown, and Dylan Roberts as he walks the fine line between trying to help Casey and keeping the crooked cops he works with from becoming suspicious of him.

Everything is taken to the next level in this book; the baddies are more evil than ever, the heroes are more determined than ever, the stakes are higher than ever, and the romance… the romance is upped too.

This book is not a light read, as it deals with the topics of child abuse, suicide, and, of course, murder. One of the characters actually gave me nightmares. But the faith based elements are strong, and it is not a depressing read.

I am eagerly anticipating the third instalment in this series, to learn of what will happen to Casey and Dylan next.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Fiction Guild. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions expressed are my own.
