BOOK REVIEW- IF I RUN

 
Casey Cox has blood on the bottom of her shoes, in her car, on her clothes. But there's no point in trying to defend herself. She just has to run.  Casey didn't kill her friend Brent. She discovered his body, but she'd never try to hurt him. He's the only person she's ever trusted enough to tell the truth about what happened to her father . . . and there's no doubt in her mind that Brent was killed trying to help her prove it. She has to run before they get to her too. Dylan Roberts was hired to find Casey and bring her back so that justice can be served. As a former Criminal Investigator for the Army, he can't imagine that tracking down one girl will be that difficult. But the more elusive Casey turns out to be, the more Dylan digs into her past to try to determine what she might be thinking. What he finds there doesn't fit the profile of a killer at all. She's unlike any other fugitive he's ever seen.The police refuse to discuss any other possibilities. There's something more going on here. Something more to this fugitive who has captured his attention. Now he just has to figure out what it is . . . and Casey just has to stay one step ahead of everyone who's after her.  AMAZON  5 Stars


Talk about action happening right away.   We get drawn into Casey running right off the bat.  Right from the start I found it strange that the police seemed to be awfully quick to condemn Casey as the killer.  It almost looked to me that they didn't look any further than Casey as the guilty party.   Her father was a cop before he died and she's watched her share of CSI type TV shows.  Add to that the fact that Casey was just naturally smart. All of that helped a lot as she ran and also was trying to get to the truth about who killed her friend Brent.  Dylan Roberts had problems of his own but he was also bound and determined to get to the bottom of his friend,  Brent's death.   He's a skilled investigator and things just aren't fitting together.  Even as he searches for Casey, he also continues to search for the truth.  Both of them are people of honor and both have suffered many losses.  
I liked the ending because some of the evil was overcome, there is a but here though.   Casey's story isn't over yet but I would like to read the next one hoping it all gets tied up in a neat little bow.  
I did also like the threads of faith in God that was included in the story.  Its not enough to make nonbelievers nervous, at least I don't think so.  But it was done skillfully and without overtaking a really good story.  


I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

P.S.  I'm glad I got the opportunity to read it because it was on my Wish list of Books to read.
