I love murder mysteries, but a few years ago I realized I needed to find ones that weren't so full of foul language and sex. And, to be honest, I kind of gave up and just moved on to other genres. If I Run is everything I desired within a murder mystery and more!
The best endorsement I can give for If I Run actually comes from my 15 year old daughter, Kaitlin. Kaitlin, who really hasn't been interested in reading, saw my copy and asked to read it when I was done. She took it with her to school, in the car, and even went to bed early so she could read for a while! Kaitlin had it completed in a couple of days, and the first words out of her mouth were, "Ahh, I can't believe it ended like that! This book is awesome....do you have the next one?"
First of all, I was thrilled myself to find out today that If I Run will be the first book in a series! I really enjoyed this murder mystery, and when I reached the final page I was hoping Terri Blackstock would continue the saga of Casey Cox and Dylan Roberts. One of my favorite parts of the novel is the fact the action begins on the very first page, within the very first sentence. From there, Casey is in a race to get far away from those who will frame her for the murder of her good friend Brent. In the meantime, Brent's family asks his friend Dylan to help find the killer, who truly appears to be Casey.
The twists and turns of this novel are wonderful, and I don't want to say much about them and ruin the suspense. But the layers of plot and subplot, trust & relationships are fantastic.
*I received a complimentary copy per my honest review.*

~~~~~~~~~~~~Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer . . . but her DNA is all over the crime scene, and she's now a fugitive. Don't miss Terri Blackstock's next page-turner, If I Run. Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than Dylan has, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. But as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices. The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
