“If I Live” by Terri Blackstock

Casey is hiding again—in Memphis this time—but it’s different now. She knows without a doubt that Dylan believes her and is doing all he can to help bring Brent’s killer to justice. He’s become an unexpected friend . . . and even, maybe, something more. Hope makes everything more bearable.

Casey makes a deal with the DA to turn over all the evidence she and Dylan have gathered against Keegan and Rollins—only to discover that the DA is in league with them too. After a desperate escape, who can they possibly turn to now?

Time is running out for Casey, but master suspense writer Terri Blackstock will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the last, utterly satisfying page.


This month, I’m reading If I Live by Terri Blackstock, the third book of her series. I love the main character, Casey, and I would choose her as a best friend in my personal life. Not only is she caring and intelligent—she protects the people she loves and strives for justice.

In this chaotic world, reaching closure with a series was so gratifying. Dylan, a former military soldier, has Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder yet rises above his trauma to investigate Brent Pace’s murder.

Throughout the book, non-stop action and plot twists keep you turning the page. I didn’t want the series to end. One of my favorite post-read activities is to read Terri Blackstock’s “A Note from the Author” and answer her Discussion Questions.
