If I’m Found, by Terri Blackstock, is the second book in the If I Run series. This book, written in first person, begins where the first book left off. It is full of action and includes the emotions of the characters.
Casey Cox is running from the law, trying to hide while she proves her innocence in the murder of her friend, Brent. Dylan Roberts is a private investigator hired by Brent’s parents, trying to find Casey and allegedly bring her to justice. Dylan, however, knows the Casey is not guilty, so he keeps her secret, continuing to work with the local police—the actual murderers—to prove her innocence and their guilt. Meanwhile, Casey meets a man falsely accused of a crime and a little girl in an abusive situation. She struggles with balancing her attempts at proving her innocence while helping right the other situation.
This was a riveting book. I do not usually enjoy reading books written in first person and honestly did not expect to like this one, but I must admit that I could not put it down. Even though I had not read the first book, I did not have any trouble understanding the action in this one. Casey has a kind heart and insists on helping those she encounters in spite of her personal situation. Dylan is a man of integrity, trying to bring the true criminals to justice.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Christian suspense novels.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
