Book Review: If I Run

Casey knows the truth.

But it won’t set her free.

Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.

But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?

Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices. The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.

I really enjoyed the first part of this book.  Casey is smart, very smart, and she knows how to hide.  Dylan was hired to bring her back to face murder charges but something just doesn't add up.  The boot kept me engrossed and rooting for both of them.

And then about midway through the book, this became a Christian book where Dylan has his therapist pray over him.  All of a sudden, he is leaving the outcome in the hands of God.  What the heck??  This book wasn't listed in the Christian category so this out turn was a huge disappointment.  I was further disappointed by the author's afterword where she is stating things as facts when they have already been proven false.  

I really can't recommend this book as a romantic suspense or even a thriller.  If it had been put in the proper category, I wouldn't even have picked it up for review.  

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
