About the book

Casey Cox is still on the run, fleeing prosecution for a murder she didn’t commit. Dylan Roberts—her most relentless pursuer—is still on her trail, but his secret emails insist that he knows the truth and wants to help her. He’s let her escape before when he had her in his grasp, but trust doesn’t come easily.

As Casey works to collect evidence about the real murderers, she stumbles on another unbearable injustice: an abused child and a suicidal man who’s also been falsely accused. Casey risks her own safety to right this wrong and protect the little girl from her tormenters. But doing so is risky and just may result in her capture—and if she’s captured, she has no doubt she’ll be murdered before she ever steps foot in a jail.

In this riveting sequel to the USA Today bestseller If I Run, evil lurks, drawing Casey out of the shadows . . . but there is light shining in the darkness. Is Dylan a provision from the God who loves her, or another heartache yet to happen?

 

My thoughts

Most nights, I fall asleep reading a book. But once in a while, a story comes along that pulls me in so deeply, I forget about rest. I want to know what happens next.

If I’m Found by Terri Blackstock was one of those books. I could not put it down and finished it in one night.

Readers meet Casey Cox in the first book, If I Run. A young woman who flees the scene of the murder of her best friend. We also learned how intelligent Casey is and got a peek of her tender heart toward injustice.

Now, as Casey continues to hide from people who will surely kill her when/if they do find her, she works to uncover the truth of who killed her friend. She’s on her own with no one to trust. Though she wants to trust Dylan Roberts. The PI who found her but let her go.

Blackstock once again takes readers on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Through discoveries and close calls—a little too close for comfort sometimes—readers follow Casey through difficult choices, a little depression and glimpses of hope. Through it all, she remains true to herself. A suspense that left me on the edge of my seat, up late at night, and wanting more.

What’s the release date for the next book in the series?

Ready to Wear

No one will ever accuse me of being a fashionista. My work wardrobe consists of items mainly from Kohl’s, not a Karen Walker design in sight and my weekend apparel is more Target than Tommy Hilfiger (and yes, I had to look those fashion designer names up).

In Be My Valentino, the second book in the Jessie Stanton series, Sandra D. Bricker, brings fashion to life.

be my valentino

Picking right up where On a Ring and a Prayer left off, Jack Stanton continues to wreak havoc on his ex-wife’s wife. Just when she got her feet under her, Jack makes an appearance and pulls the rug right back out from under her.

As Jessie struggles with making her business profitable, Jack’s appearance brings her under the scrutiny of the FBI.

While the new man in her life, Danny Callahan, tries to be someone she can count on, he takes a side job to ferret out a mole at a local awards show.

Can Jessie trust another man after Jack stomped all over her? Will her business survive an FBI raid? And most importantly, will Jessie Hart put her trust in the one person who will never leave or forsake her?

I appreciate that this series is following Jessie’s journey because it emulates life. Just when you think you have everything figured out, you are hit with one (or three) unexpected hardships are thrown in the path you believe you have finally figured out.

Through humorous situations and heart-wrenching news, Jessie makes her way through life, learning to stand on her own two feet. I can’t wait to see what life brings her way next.
