Book Review, “If I’m Found,” Terri Blackstock author

If I'm Found cover

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.

Book Review, “Twisted Innocence,” Terri Blackstock author

twisted innocence coverTwisted Innocence, by Terri Blackstock, is the third book in the Moonlighters series. It tells the story of two people attempting to turn their lives around after previously making some terrible decisions.

Holly Cramer is driving a cab part-time and working for her sister’s fiancé’s PI firm. A new mother, she desperately desires to make a new life for her infant daughter, to become something other than a party girl. With the help of her sisters, Juliet and Cathy, she has been given just that chance. Creed Kershaw, the baby’s father, is the last person she wants to know about the baby, Lily, but when he kidnaps them in order to prove his innocence in a murder investigation, she realizes that he already knows. Holly must choose whether or not to believe Creed. When he agrees to turn himself in to the police and help lead them to Leonard Miller, the man responsible for much devastation in her family, she decides to believe him, finding herself drawn more and more to him each day.

This was a great book! I had a hard time putting it down. After reading the second book in this series, I was eager to learn what happened to this family. I enjoyed reading about Holly and Creed. Their previous mistakes had led them far away from God, but He was able to use their difficult situations and their Christian families to bring them back to Him. It was a wonderful story.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense novels.

Book Review, “Distortion,” Terri Blackstock author

distortion coverDistortion, by Terri Blackstock, is another incredible suspense novel to add to her long list of Christian suspense books.  The second in the Moonlighters series, sequel to Truth-Stained Lies, readers will quickly recognize many characters and become reacquainted with them.

Juliet is helping her sister move when she witnesses a man being gunned down in a dark parking lot.  Devastated when she learns that the man is her husband of fifteen years, Bob, she believes that it was a random shooting. She quickly discovers, however, that the attack was no random event but a planned attack on her husband. Juliet soon finds her own life threatened, and she fears for the safety of her children as well.  Juliet and her sisters team up with PI Michael Hogan to investigate the incident, but continue to reveal layer after layer of deception, until she is not sure of any truths except that she and her children are in danger.

I very much enjoyed this book and had a difficult time putting it down!  In true Terri Blackstock form, she presented the gospel message clearly.  In the midst of the betrayal, she included powerful messages regarding forgiveness, confession, and consequences.  I appreciated the strength with which these characters responded to the heart break and wondered if I would be able to do the same.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense novels.

Book Review, “Covenant Child,” Terri Blackstock author

Covenant Child, by Terri Blackstock, is an excellent book!  It is the story of a broken family whose only hope is the faith and persistence of one member.  It reminds us that God is bigger than our circumstances and in control if we allow Him to be.

Amanda and Jack Holbrooke marry when his twin daughters are just three-years-old.  But when he and his parents die in a plane crash soon after, the girls’ maternal grandparents appear and are awarded custody of them.  The grandparents squander the generous allowance that the court awards for the girls, but Amanda is awarded the rest of the Holbrooke estate.  She continues to build it and keep it safe for the girls, contacting them as possible as they grow up.  When they turn eighteen, she invites them to live with her and learn to take over their inheritance.  Lizzie accepts immediately, but Kara is skeptical and fights the idea.

I found myself getting involved with the story as I read.  The characters are very realistic, each with attitudes and problems that one finds in people daily.  I found Amanda’s faith and loyalty to the girls and to the Lord very inspiring.  I would most definitely recommend this book!
