    WOW. JUST... WOW. SO GOOD. How can an author maintain such a ridiculously compelling plot through three entire books? Add that awesome plot to complex characters, thought-provoking themes, and tight prose, and you end up with this amazing series conclusion. SO INTENSE. BUT STILL SO THOUGHT-PROVOKING. The author tackles tough issues of horrifying evil with hope and justice. It’s not just an incredible page-turner; it’s a story with depth and t...

    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...

    Hmmmm . . .I guess, for me, I feel slightly disappointed by this series. It was so hyped-up, but it just kind of fell flat for me. Lovely Things: - The realistic characters. Casy and Dylan were smart, sensible, reasonable people for the most part - but they did have FEELINGS. They didn't fit into either stereotypical thriller character archetype: the "I'm a completely clueless jellybean" category or the "I'm so perfect and emotionless that I'm no...

    WOW! This book was one adrenaline rush after another. It was intense, way more intense than the first two, if you can even believe that. It was a wonderful final installment. Gut wrenching and heart pounding. I was left on the edge of my seat, wondering if certain characters would make it out of these situations alive or... well, not alive.The characters were all great. Except for the ones who weren't (*cough* Keegan), but I think that's how it w...

    What a great ending to the series!! I loved If I Live. There was so much suspense and danger that the pages just flew by (I barely put the book down)! I needed to know how the series would end and it was a great finale. The characters were good, same as the previous books. ;) I liked the romance story and was hoping things would work out. It actually didn't end as I thought and I loved that even more. All in all, If I Live was a wonderful read fo...

    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...

    4.5 starsYou see that fangirl in the corner clutching If I Live to her heart, beblubbered with happy tears? That would be yours truly. (And yes, "beblubbered" is a word. One of my most recent favorites. And no, I'm not actually shedding tears. I just wanted to use said word. xD)This is the nail-bitingly suspenseful but ultimately satisfying conclusion to the If I Run series. I liked it A LOT.

    Terri Blackstock delivers again! She is my favorite suspense author.In the final novel of the If I Run series, Casey Cox continues to be on the run from authorities while trying to prove her innocence. Dylan Roberts, the private investigator for the murder Casey is accused of suffers from PTSD and doesn't have the support of his family to be a civilian police officer. The pages are filled with action. The entire series was well done.My gratitude ...

    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...

    I have blisters on my eyeballs from speed reading! Once you start in on this spectacular conclusion to the If I Run series you won't be able to stop until you reach the end. And when you do you will throw a tantrum (the major hissy-fit kind) because you will want more only it's all over. Done. Complete. Finis. And when the reality of that sinks in you will sulk around the house consuming copious amounts of chocolate because...well...what else is ...

    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...

    *happy sigh* Can I give this book a kazillion stars please?!? It was sssooo good! Nothing took away my enjoyment from this book! The conclusion to the series was as awesome as the other two books.Casey and Dylan have given me some serious anxiety problems this entire series. The POV lets you get into the characters head, their thoughts are yours, their emotions are yours, and their actions became yours. Mrs.Blackstock is amazing when she writes i...

    I really loved this book, just like the others in this series. I couldn’t wait for this book to be released and when I realized it was I requested it immediately! I read it in two days despite working 19 hours in those two days and as I suspected, was sad when I turned the last page, knowing this was the last book in the series. Definitely made it on my favorites list and I recommend reading this entire series. You won’t be disappointed.

    If I Live is the final book in a trilogy, and don’t even think about reading it if you haven’t already read If I Run and If I’m Found. If I Live picks up almost exactly where If I’m Found ends, so if you’re one of those readers who has the patience to wait for the whole series before you read the first book, this series is perfect for you.Also, if you haven’t read If I Run and If I’m Found, you probably shouldn’t read this (or any...

    She wrapped everything up so perfectly that I couldnt have asked for a better ending but... I still want more from Dylan and Casey. *****Spoilers*****Marriage really? I mean yeah you have been talking for a while over the phone but have barely seen eachother. I guess being on the run makes you closer with people but marriage?! How about a first date? That was my one error. And somehow I still loved the idea of them, But marriage really.

    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!!

    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...
