Genre: Christian Fiction-Crime
About the Book:
“Casey is hiding again—in Memphis this time—but it’s different now. She knows without a doubt that Dylan believes her and is doing all he can to help bring Brent’s killer to justice. He’s become an unexpected friend . . . and even, maybe, something more. Hope makes everything more bearable.
Casey makes a deal with the DA to turn over all the evidence she and Dylan have gathered against Keegan and Rollins—only to discover that the DA is in league with them too. After a desperate escape, who can they possibly turn to now?
Time is running out for Casey, but master suspense writer Terri Blackstock will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the last, utterly satisfying page.”
The suspense continues with the third and final book in the If I Run Series. As with the first two books, this was a hard book to put down. Casey is still on the run but she and Dylan are getting closer and closer to having what they need to ensure Keegan pays for his crimes. Unfortunately the closer they get the more desperate Keegan gets and the death tolls start to rise. Can Casey and Dylan get enough evidence to put Keegan away for life? Or Does Keegan get to them first?
I have a lot I could say about this book but unfortunately with as many shocking events that occurred I feel that anything I say would be a spoiler. The suspense in this series started from page one of If I Run and ran straight through to the final pages of If I Live. This is a series that really can’t be read out of order, but once you read the first you’ll be sucked in through the last. I admit I enjoy reading and can read fairly fast, but I read this entire series in three days and that’s saying something even for me. Terri Blackstock proves again why she is one of my favorite authors! I can’t wait to see what she thinks up next!

*At the time of this review the book has not yet been released to the public. The expected release date is March 6, 2018.
Age Appropriateness: As with the first two books is this series, I recommend this book for more mature readers. On a romance and language scale the series remains clean, but there are several murders that occur. My personal recommendation would be for readers to be 15 or 16 but encourage parental guidance and discretion.
