Summary

Casey knows the truth. But it won't set her free.

Casey Cox's DNA is all over the crime scene. There's no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she's arrested...or worse.

The truth doesn't matter anymore. But what is the truth? That's the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren't adding up. Casey Cox doesn't fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan's skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn't guilty, why did she run?

Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, 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.

Great Storey

Any additional comments?

This book had me on the edge of my seat constantly. I really hope that there is a sequel. The way it ended left the door wide open for one. I really want to know more about all the characters. The only thing I can ask for is that the reader give each character their own voice. The way she read it, it was hard to tell which character was talking. It made it really hard to follow with there being no voice differences. Other than that I thought the book was very suspenseful and original. I enjoyed it throughly.

Strongly recommend print version NOT AUDIO

What disappointed you about If I Run?

I read the audio book version. The narration and production were troubled. Little or no variation in character voices. Very difficult to differentiate characters. I relied on pronouns to remind me which character was speaking.

What could Terri Blackstock have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The story was not new, just a rehash of familiar themes. The religious soap box at the end did not help.

How could the performance have been better?

Better character distinction, slow down, better production quality. The first several chapters felt like I was running a race. Several instances of the announcement of a new chapter as if it were the end of a previous sentence, example: "this terrible thing happened and couldn't be believed chapter five."

What character would you cut from If I Run?

Hard to say. I couldn't tel the difference in them.

Any additional comments?

I was going to read the next book because they are both highly rated. I changed my mind after this one. I have no idea why this one is rated highly. Basically in the chick lit genre.

Great story, confusing narration

Any additional comments?

As usual, Terry Blackstock has written a winner. I have very mixed feelings about the narrator, however. She has a lovely voice, so that wasn't the problem. My issue was with her narration of the male dialogues. She didn't change her voice at all. If I left the book during the main guy's story, it was confusing when I got back to it. It always took me a minute to realize it was his story, because the voice was the same as the female character's voice. It was just weird.

Excellent thriller!

Would you listen to If I Run again? Why?

I have listened twice now. Tight story line. Keeps my interest with all the twists and turns.

What other book might you compare If I Run to and why?

I like all of the Blackstock books. However, the Newpointe series with the fire chief killing the wives of firemen kept us on the edge of our seats. It was also written well with compelling characters.

Which character – as performed by Nan Gurley – was your favorite?

Aunt Aggie. She makes an excellent contrast to the points being made in the story.

Who was the most memorable character of If I Run and why?

Casey. I can identify with her struggles and her thoughts of giving up or forging ahead. She always chooses for God and trying to do the right thing. She realizes how hopeless her life is and knows that she only has God to trust.

Loved it!

This was an excellent plot with well-developed characters! People who complained about the narrator not changing voices made it sound like she did an awful job; however, I thought she was fine. Pay attention to the titles of each chapter and you will easily know who is speaking. I highly recommend!

Story line grips you from the first paragraph

Terri Blackstock has become my favorite author. Her use of vivid words and delving into the characters, make the fictional work seem real. She writes with Character and Conviction. Do yourself a favor and collect her works.
