If I Run (If I Run #1) Reviews
**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
If I Run is good, very good. Readers that enjoy suspense should not miss this one!
If I Run is primarily about Casey, who is on the run from the police. She is a smart young lady with a good heart. Dylan is the second main character and he is a soldier with PTSD.
Initially, I was confused by the first person wording by both Casey and Dylan, but I quickly adapted to switch between the two voices.
Terri is the best of the genre. If I Run is highly recommended for fans of suspense.
My husband, my son and I listened to this one. The feelings are ALL OVER THE BOARD!
My son was riveted.
My husband hated it. (“hated” may be putting it mildly)
I thought it was somewhat compelling, although simplistic. This was my first experience with Christian fiction and, well, it was too heavy handed for me personally.
We all agreed that a different narrator would have made for a better experience. So there you have it.
Oh. My. GOODNESS.
This book is perhaps the best suspense novel I’ve ever read.
And I don’t say that lightly. I’ve read a lot of suspense novels. I’ve loved a lot of suspense novels. I will love a lot of suspense novels in the future. But If I Run… there’s just something really special about this one.
In fact, I can already guarantee that it will make my “best of 2016” list. I can also guarantee that it will top my list of recommended reads for suspense fans from here on out.

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
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
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.
This is the book I never knew I needed.
This is a thriller series for Christians. It's a Christian book that doesn't shy away from the evil and violence and sorrow of the real world, but still offers glimmers of hope. It's about a young woman who's been crushed by the weight of evil for her entire life and still tries to do what's right no matter the personal cost. It's about a man whose PTSD cripples him, but he still works to follow his God and do what is right. It's about an incredibly corrupt ...more
