  • Hannah
    This series got better and better with every book! This is an excellent and pulse-pounding ending as Detective Keegan is desperate and fighting for his control. He’ll stop at nothing to shut up Casey—and Dylan. Whoever might stand in his way is standing before a raging bull, and he sees neither friend or foe in his death-throes. He takes out some unexpected folks along his way and does his level best to make sure the police force is never the...

    WOOOOOOOW.This was an amazing close to an as-amazing trilogy. The suspense did not let up and I was left gasping for breath at a couple of points, dying to skip ahead and find out what had happened...but I couldn't because kindle. *weeps*But. Anyway. Review. Much of this will be spoilers, although I'll do my very, very best to avoid them. However! If you're interested in reading this book, and you see a spoiler tag, DO NOT CLICK. You will thank m...

    I have been looking forward to reading this book, and have had it and trying to savor it, but finally gave in and consumed it, and I sure was not disappointed. We have followed these people through three books and they have become family, and I care about them.There is so much action here, and we really root against the evil in the form of the police, yes corruption at the highest, and so many innocents hurt, including the main characters. Just w...

    This was a terrific finale to an excellent series! I’ve read many thrillers/suspense books in the Christian fiction subset and this series is by far, my favorite. Often I’ve found that Christian thrillers can be a bit too tame for my liking…Terri Blackstock knows how to keep it clean but also keep the reader on the edge of their seats, all while glorifying God. I read through all three of the books in this trilogy very fast…the pacing was...

    *Source* NetGalley*Genre* Mystery, Thriller*Rating* 3.5*Thoughts*If I Live is the third and final installment in author Terri Blackstock's If I Run trilogy. As the story picks up, Casey Cox is still on the run after being indicted for murder. A murder she most definitely did not commit, but she knows who was responsible. The hunt that began with her bloody footprints escalates, and she’s running out of places to hide. Her face is all over the n...

    Absolutely. Breathtaking. I literally could not breathe while reading If I Live. The finale of the If I Run series grabbed me by the throat from the opening page until the end. And I must admit, I’m still a little uneasy and unsure if Casey will have a happily ever after. Not because I don’t think she deserves it but because Ms. Blackstock put my emotions through the ringer. I almost feel like I suffered as Casey did. I want to look over my s...
  • Hanne T
    First of all, I DEFINITELY recommend you reading them in order (in all trilogies, but I feel like if you didn't read this one in order, it's impossible to follow the story). All three books in the trilogy flow together SO WELL, not just physically (the covers match to make a picture!) but also story-wise.The characters are THE BEST. There are points of view from both protagonists as well as the antagonist, and they all go together to paint the fu...

    Review to follow.While you're waiting, read If I Run and If I'm Found :)
  • Madison
    And so concludes the If I Run series. If I Live finishes the series with a whole lot of tension, lots of near-death moments, and some long-awaited romance. The action and suspense in If I Live picks up right where book two left off, and, finally, Casey Cox has a chance for justice - if she can stay alive long enough.If I Live is the third and final book in the If I Run series. I recommend that this series be read in chronological order to fully u...

    Blackstock has finished the trilogy of the If I Run with a bang! If I Live had me riveted from the first page. This author is an amazingly talented writer. The suspense, action and characters kept the pages turning rapidly. I was rooting for Casey and Dylan and the romance was believable and precious. I have read many of Blackstock's books and this series was my favorite of them all. *I was given a copy of this book via netgalley Zondervan publis...

    I flew through this book! Good conclusion to the series and a very satisfying ending. I found this book to be less preachy than #2 was, which I appreciate. The Christianity that was dropped into conversations was realistic . Great series!!
  • Christa
    My favorite aspect of this book was the way it so nicely tied up all of the threads of the series. I liked the characters of Casey Cox and Dylan Roberts just as much as I did in the prior two books. The book moved at a fast pace and had plenty of action. It seemed like a quick read to me and kept my interest all the way through. I enjoyed the storyline and was pleased with the way everything played out.This third book of the series finds Casey st...
  • Jessica Higgins
    One of the best conclusions to a series I have read in a long time! Blackstock does not disappoint!Casey Cox is still running for her life and trying to prove she is not a murderer. She has been indicted for murder, but has information that proves she isn’t a killer, if she can only find someone to believe her. Her face is all over the news and even with changing her appearance she still fears being recognized. Dylan Roberts may have been taske...

    If I Live is book 3 in the If I Run Series. If you have not read the first two I would advise you to read those before reading this one. It will add to your enjoyment of this book as you get to know the characters thoroughly. This story is told in the first person from the viewpoint of three characters. There is Casey Cox who is on the run from being accused of a murder she did not commit. There is Dylan Roberts, the man hired by the family of Br...
  • Vera Godley
    An exciting, tense ending to a series that is written in a style that is both engaging and easy to read. While not on a level with the stridently ugly and vicious crime novels that flood the market, this series, and especially book #3 If I Live, is packed with tension, chases, capture, emotion, joy, grief, pain, and love.Readers will sense the need to continue flipping page after page until they reach the end of this exciting finale. As private i...

    This is the highly anticipated conclusion to this thrilling series! My husband and I have both enjoyed these books and were super excited to FINALLY find out what happens! I will say you must start with book one or none of the story will make sense. I have loved all of the books and the suspense will keep you on the edge of your chair and biting your fingernails. I will say I think that I liked the first two books the most, as they were the most ...

    If I Live is the last novel in the three book series. Blackstock reveals in the Acknowledgments that she wanted to write a series with a female fugitive modeled after the 1950s “Fugutive” TV programs. The earlier novels in the series saw Casey Cox wrongly accused of murder, fleeing, and remaining at large. She has had help from Dylan, a veteran and PI who believes she is innocent. The real murderer, Keegan, is a corrupt policeman who is tight...

    "I don't know if I'm talking to God in the right way, but I have learned that Jesus intercedes for me."Since the first book in this series, If I Run, I have been hooked and have been waiting two years for the ending. What an ending Blackstock gives her readers! Casey is hiding out in Memphis in this last book but she knows now that Dylan believes her story, that she did not kill Brent Pace or the others and that she truly is innocent of all the c...

    WOW! Fantastic finish to a fantastic series. Blackstock once again gives an excellent story. Suspense, romance, and okay, I’ll say it, Happy Endings!By the third book in the series you can’t help but love Casey and Dylan. You want them to win.I would recommend this story to my friends and family that enjoy good suspense. I do recommend you read all the books in the series, in order. You would probably enjoy it only reading book three, but to ...

    I’ve waited a year for Casey and Dillon’s return. And oh, boy, was it worth it!Terri Blackstock delivers a series finale that I could not put down. I mean, who needs sleep when Casey and Dillon are so close to exposing the truth while just as near danger and evil.A fast-paced, well executed read with plenty of twists and turns to kept me up late into the night to reach the satisfying and gratifying ending. I can’t wait to see what Blackstoc...

    If I Live is the 3rd book in Terri Blackstock's If I Run trilogy. I loved the suspense in these books although I am not sure your average person could manage to survive what Casey and Dylan went through. If I Live is fast paced and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Some of the scenes did make a little queasy, but they were necessary to the realism of the story. I have come to love Casey and Dylan so that I am sad to reach the end of their story...

    If I Live is the exciting third installment from Terri Blackstock’s If I Run series. I have enjoyed this series and If I Live did not disappoint. Like the first two of the series, I was hooked right from the start. The author really has a gift to keep the reader engaged with the story and not want to the book down. I highly recommend If I Live and give it a well deserved 5 stars. I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to ...

    I loved this final book in the "If I Run" series by Terri Blackstock. I've never read one of her books that I haven't loved. As with all of her books, I could not put this one down. I pre-ordered "If I Live," and waited "impatiently" I might add, until it arrived. I finished it in less than 4 hours. This is the first time I've ever pre-ordered a book. I usually wait until a book is on sale. Great job Terri!
  • JoAnn
    Wow what a great book! Terri Blackstock has hit another home rung with her newest book, If I Live. A well crafted plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good suspense
  • Ruth
    I really enjoyed this book, a good mix of suspense, mystery, and romance. I've always liked Terri Blackstock's books and this book lived up to my expectations :) Its fun to read from the viewpoint of different characters and have a "birds eye view" of what's going on. Some authors give away the whole mystery when using this technique, not Terri! You really feel the terror Casey feels, the fear and sense of responsibility Dylan carries, and the de...

    If I Live by Terri Blackstock – You Won’t Want to Put It DownI love reading Christian mysteries and suspense novels and Terri Blackstock is one of my favorite writers.
