If I Run (If I Run #1) Reviews
This book I was pleasantly surprised at it, I went into it with an open mind and found myself really enjoying it.
It's written from two perspectives which is Casey & Dylan's which I love, it's my favourite thing when books are told from two POV's - both of them intertwining but seeing it from different perspectives, I just love it.
Both Casey and Dylan I believe are quite well developed characters, I don't feel like they are flat / one dimensional or lacking in anything major. I love that they ...more
This is a simply told story told in two voices. The first is that of Casey Cox who we meet at the scene of a murder. The murder is that of Bent Pace, a close friend and Casey flees from the scene. She knows it is no good contacting the police, they have failed her before. The other choice is that of Dylan Roberts, a war veteran with Post Traumatic Stress. He is a childhood friend of the man murdered and hired by his friend’s parents to fond Casey. Everything he learns about Casey seemed to count ...more
Casey is on the run for a crime she didnt commit.
Dylan is supposed to find her and bring her in.
This was an intese read as casey is moving from place to place trying to aviod the police and hopefully create a new life for herself but stuff goes wrong and im explaining this poorly but i loved it! And highly recommend you pick it up because it was amazing and i read it at a time in my life that i really needed someone to question God as i question him. ...more
**Second Read** - still a great story! I re-read it in a couple days.
The sign of a great book for me is how long it takes me to read it. IF I RUN took me all of two days! I couldn't set it down. I've read many of Blackstock's books, and this one has a unique voice and storyline I know her fans will enjoy. I was hooked from the start! I also appreciated that the male and female leads were, refreshingly, NOT involved romantically. There is something that happens to propel a subplot that was very ...more
I actually enjoyed this book. At first I was not really into it because the writing felt childish but it's a thriller so I wasn't really looking for the writing to be that great anyways. I usually only care about the plot line and how well the author builds suspense when I read a thriller and Blackstock managed to do that pretty well. I'm also sure if I was younger I would have enjoyed it way more. I just wish the characters had more substance but it is the first books so we'll see when there's ...more
An enjoyable suspense read. Casey and Dylan are both interesting characters. The clues and relationships are good, and Miss Lucy gives a nice Christian testimony in the course of the story.
However, I dropped a star for two reasons. When I ordered the book, I had no idea it was written in present tense. This POV is extremely off-putting for me, and it made it very hard to read. To be brought so close to the moment of the story obscures the action and the perspective, and leaves the reader focused ...more
Before we begin, I wasn't aware this book was of the Christian genre, but doesn't matter because the blurb really sold it to me.
Also I thank Netgally for giving this opportunity to share a bit of this story with you. This is an honest review.
My first thought was that of a song because of the blurb. The blurb states how a cop is after the MC, Casey, and she is laying low because she's suspected to have murdered someone named Brent. The first song I thought of was I'm Coming After You by Owl ...more
If I Run by Terri Blackstock is the best suspense I've read in years. This book had it all: perfect pacing, appealing heroine, twists I didn't see coming.
