If I’m Found by Terri Blackstock
Casey Cox is on the run, fleeing from a murder she did not commit. She is being tracked by Dylan Roberts who was hired by the victim’s family to find the murderer. Dylan has been contacting her by email giving her the impression that he might believe that she did not commit the murder. In fact, he has let her go on at least one occasion. Casey while on the run continues to come across folks that are in situations that have put them in harm. She puts her own safety and freedom aside to help them when she can.
This sequel to If I Run is a page turner! It can be read as a standalone and still make a great read. Terri Blackstock has the ability to write characters that the reader begins to care and root for in her stories. The mystery of whether Casey actually murdered is the main plot and unfolds through Casey’s point of view, Dylan and the detectives on the case for the police. These points of view help flesh out the story a little but the conclusion will have to wait until the third installment. The secondary plot, happens when Casey discovers a child being abused. This plot is not as much of a suspense but a call for justice. The characters of Casey and Dylan show how a new relationship can lead someone down their faith journey and to accepting Christ. Hand this book to anyone that like a quick and fun suspense but doesn’t mind waiting a bit for the final conclusion. Fans of Terri Blackstock will not be disappointed and new readers will be drawn in enough to want to go back and read the first book in the series.
