IF I’M FOUND
Emotions, tensions and suspense all run high in this fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller. The continuing storyline in Blackstock’s If I Run series keeps readers hungrily devouring each new book and waiting impatiently for the next. The dual first-person present-tense narrative both heightens the tension and allows readers to delve deeper inside Dylan and Casey’s minds … and their hearts. Romance and faith elements, as well as a focus on PTSD, are slightly more overt in this sequel than its predecessor, enhancing the story even further.
Casey Cox is still on the run, fleeing accusations that she brutally murdered her best friend, and unsure why the man hired to bring her in — Dylan Roberts — let her go. Can she really trust Dylan when he says he believes her? As she tracks down the evidence she needs to prove who really killed Brent, Casey’s path intersects with a suicidal man being falsely accused of unspeakable things. Will helping him — and one scared little girl — give her pursuers the chance to close in on Casey once and for all? (ZONDERVAN, Mar., 352 pp., $15.99)
