Terri Blackstock: Illustrating Christ's Love to Readers

Dear Readers-

Years ago I read a book authored by Terri Blackstock called Never Again Goodbye." I LOVED THAT STORY, so I was hooked. I must admit that I haven't read some of Terri's latest suspense novels, but her latest book looks very tempting.

Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over seven million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. Her most recent suspense novel is If I Run, about a young female fugitive whose being accused of a heinous murder.  Other books include Truth Stained Lies (the Moonlighters Series), Intervention (the Intervention Series), and Last Light (the Restoration Series). 

Here's what Terri had to say about her new novel, If I Run:

"While I finished my Moonlighters Series, I kept seeing my new character Casey running from a murder charge. Her DNA is all over the crime scene, so she knows proving her innocence will be impossible. Because the justice system has let her down before, Casey runs to keep the police and others from catching up to her, so she has to constantly change her identity and her appearance, move from one part of the country to another, and leave no clues that would lead police to her.

"At first, I didn’t know how well this would work since I write Christian suspense novels. I knew Casey was going to have to break the law several times throughout the story, and the fear that drives her isn’t all that Christ-like. She’s a lost, but winsome character who tries to do the right thing. Then I realized that God didn’t mean for her to be a Christian when the story opens. Casey’s interaction with a God whose existence she doubts will show readers that Christ is concerned with the details of our lives even before we turn to Him, and that when we do call out to Him, we are guaranteed to find Him."

 Thank you, Teri.

The Title caught me right off and the story sounds very intriguing! I usually don't read much suspense but I really like the premise of this story. And as big a name as Terri has, I've never read her books. This sounds like a good one to try. Thanks!

Terri's suspense is excellent. I haven't read a single one that I did not enjoy.
