A Woman on the Run

Casey Cox is on the run from a crime she didn't commit. Her friend Brent has been murdered, and she's afraid of being accused. After all her DNA is all over his apartment. Casey knows she's in trouble. Brent was investigating her father's supposed suicide and found proof that he was murdered. Now whoever did it is after Casey.

Dylan Roberts is looking for Casey. Brent's parents hired him to find the truth. Dylan is pressed by the local law enforcement officers to find Casey, but the more he looks into it, the more he can't believe she's guilty. It's a race against time. He wants to find her before she's arrested for murder.

I usually enjoy Terri Blackstock's books, but this one was difficult to get into. Casey is terrified getting into all sorts of bad situations, but I found it hard to like her. Dylan is a good character. He seems trustworthy and ready to help Casey, if she will accept the help. His history of PTSD and flashbacks is realistic.

What I didn't like was the ending and the fact that the main plot wasn't resolved. I think books that tease you into the next three volumes by leaving the plot unfinished are cheating. I did like the way the author brought God into the story to help a very troubled young woman.

If you like stories that are told over several books, you may enjoy this one. However, if you don't like being left hanging until the next book, give this a miss.

I received this book from BookLook Bloggers for this review.
