Another great title from Lisa Gardner. She has a way of writing that just intrigues the reader. ( )

Another roller-coaster of a read by Lisa Garner. I just can't get enough of her books!

The twists and turns just keep on coming and you are left second-guessing your every theory right until the end. Fabulous! ( )

Love You More
4 Stars

Lisa Gardner's fast paced writing style and captivating plots are the reason she is one of my favorite crime authors, particularly her Quincy/Rainie series. Unfortunately, her D.D. Warren books have never been stellar (perhaps because D.D. herself is not that likable a heroine) but Love You More breaks this unremarkable trend.

Once again, the perspective alternates between first and third person. While this has irritated me in the past, it works well here as it adds to the characterization and tension in the plot. D.D. also mellows somewhat in this book although she still comes across as harsh and brash at times and her detecting skills definitely need work.

The mystery is what makes this a worthwhile read. The intricate twists and turns together with Tessa's amazing mind and ability to strategize keep the reader guessing as the story slowly unravels and the villains and motives become clear.

Overall, this is one of the better books in this particular series and I will continue on to the next one. ( )

Book description
One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter?
 
As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets. Would a trained police officer truly shoot her own husband? And would a mother harm her own child?
 
For Tessa Leoni, the worst has not yet happened. She is walking a tightrope, with nowhere to turn, no one to trust, as the clock ticks down to a terrifying deadline. She has one goal in sight, and she will use every ounce of her training, every trick at her disposal, to do what must be done. No sacrifice is too great, no action unthinkable. A mother knows who she loves. And all others will be made to pay.
