    great, suspenseful read!

    Casey Cox is living her worst nightmare. Accused of killing her best friend, she knows the police are involved and must stay one step ahead of them while trying to find proof of who really killed her friend. She's on the run and things are getting more desperate.

    I'm glad this is the final book in the "If I Run" series because I have felt so bad for Casey. I've felt her desperation and I just wanted her to be able to get her life back. There are many dangers that must be faced to get to that point. It's a high octane read that kept me reading long into the night. There was a twist that I totally didn't see coming. I like it when I get surprised.

    Dylan is a great character who has a hard line to walk. He believes Casey but can't let Keegan know that. I appreciate his wisdom in encouraging Casey to look and see how and where God is working in her circumstances. Things change in our hearts when we realize how active He is in our lives.

    This is a great, suspenseful read. I would highly recommend it. It is best read in order in the series as the whole story is based on the two that come before. Thank you to Zondervan for providing me with a free e-copy of this book. I was not required to leave a positive review. All opinions are my own.

    Amazing trilogy, beautiful conclusion

    First of all, I DEFINITELY recommend you reading them in order (in all trilogies, but I feel like if you didn't read this one in order, it's impossible to follow the story). All three books in the trilogy flow together SO WELL, not just physically (the covers match to make a picture!) but also story-wise.

    The characters are THE BEST. There are points of view from both protagonists as well as the antagonist, and they all go together to paint the full picture and what goes on in the minds of the characters. (ALSO THE SHIP THAT HAPPENS HERE. ITS PRETTY MUCH THE ONLY SHIP THAT I AGREE WITH IN BOOKS)

    All the plot twists in this book are amazing!! Halfway through the book, I thought it was about to end, but then A PLOT TWIST HAPPENED. There were so many but it didn't feel overdone at all.

    ALSO SO MUCH ACTION. There was a lot of legal action (aka, stuff that happens at the police station), but as far as I can tell, it's very realistic and actually makes sense.

    The last thing I liked about this book was all the faith content. The first book (and also a little in the second book) didn't contain so much faith content (which I get, as part of character development), but there was so much in this one, despite all the action, which I really appreciated.

    One thing to keep an eye out for is all the violence in the book. As one might expect with a suspense novel, there is a lot of violence, which I don't recommend at 2 in the morning, but it might be a little bit much for younger readers or those not comfortable with that violence.


    My Rating:


    Good things-

    The characters were well developed (SO SO WELL DEVELOPED. OMGNS)

    The Point of Views were well balanced between the characters and felt natural

    A lot of action

    Seems realistic (in terms of law enforcement and the scenes and stuff...but then, I'm not in that world so I wouldn't know)

    THE SHIP. I mean, we all knew it was coming, but like. THE SHIP THOUGH.

    All the plot twists!!! All the way through the book, I knew what was going to happen (at least, I *hoped* that everything was going to come out okay), but there were so so many plot twists that happened along the way

    All the faith content and the spiritual talk

    The coherency between all the books

    Bad things-

    A lot of violence (well portrayed, which means realistic, but there are guns and shooting and death and etc)

    It feels a little deux ex machina at the end (in regards to the media)

    Ive waited a year for Casey and Dillons return. And oh, boy, was it worth it!

    Terri Blackstock delivers a series finale that I could not put down. I mean, who needs sleep when Casey and Dillon are so close to exposing the truth while just as near danger and evil.

    A fast-paced, well executed read with plenty of twists and turns to kept me up late into the night to reach the satisfying and gratifying ending.

    I cant wait to see what Blackstock has in store for readers next.

    I've said this before with the other books in this series, but I really need to say it for this one too! WOW!

    This is a FANTASTIC ending to this series. It's just what fans of Terri Blackstock will expect. It's full of heart-stopping suspense, riveting action, and drama, as well as sweet romance.

    Throughout this series, I've come to not like a couple of characters and in this book I truly see the evil in them.

    The author brings so much to each character that it's as if I know them personally. I started to really get upset with how things were consistently coming against Casey and Dylan. They only want the truth to come out and yet nothing goes they're way. My heart stopped a couple of times when I thought evil would win.

    Terri Blackstock truly has a fantastic way of writing that will capture you and draw you into the story, and before you know it you will have read the whole book. This is an amazing page-turner of a book.

    I'm glad I was given the opportunity to read it and the whole series. I honestly loved this book and highly recommend reading it. I received this book from the publisher to read. All opinions are my own.

    Wow! The finale to the If I Run series was a heart stopping, breath stealing rush of adrenaline! Casey and Dylan are forced to separate as seen in If I'm Found, but continue to search autonomously for evidence to bring justice to Keegan, Rollins, and others involved in the brutal murder and cover up of Casey and Dylan's friend Brent and Casey's father. Casey and Dylan both find themselves facing insurmountable danger and barely escape with their lives on multiple occasions. When they are finally reunited, the tenderness in their reunion at just being alive and being together is precious as is the sweet romance they build while in hiding. As Casey and Dylan get closer to revealing the truth publicly, Keegan's cold-hearted, diabolical mind is displayed through multiple gruesome actions. The suspense was nail-biting intense! I couldn't wait to see how the mess of terror was going to untangle! Must read for all mystery lovers!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. A review was not required but was voluntary and contains my own thoughts and opinions regarding this literary work.
