What will a mother do to protect her daughter? This thriller has a Mass. State Patrol's first female officer who uses her skills to elude our hero (D.D. Warren) and find her kidnapped daughter. Told from two perspectives--Tessa Leoni and D.D. Warren, the reader gets the idea that the police often don't get it right and that allows our other heroine to elude them. Books get five stars on my list if I can't put it down; there were several places where I thought that the story might end, but still had time on the listen. Fast paced--you wonder who dunit and don't learn until the end. On to the next D.D. Warren book and since this is Tessa Leoni's first, maybe there are more? ( )

I enjoyed the book but didn't think all the loose ends were tied up in the end.

Love You More is a gripping thriller that opens with State Tropper Tessa Leoni being arrested for the murder of her husband and the disappearance of her 6 year old daughter. Tessa’s narrative takes the reader back and forth through her relationship with Brian and their last moments together and it becomes clear early on that she may not be a reliable narrator, as her story often changes, but why does she do this? The reason does become apparant nearer the end – and it’s a good one! Interspersing Tessa’s story is Detective D. D. Warren and her race to find missing six-year-old Sophie. D.D. is a great character – she’s fiesty, funny (without trying) and kick-ass; I love her. The switching between the two perspectives keeps the plot fast-paced and interesting too, espcially as you are wondering who to believe most of the time.

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. ( )

I am a big Lisa Gardner fan and was on the hold list at the library for this book FOREVER so was really looking forward to reading this one. It started of well and stayed pretty true to Gardner form throughout. My only small complaint is that it seemed to me that D.D. and Bobby figured out what had "actually" happened to Tessa on a dime - one minute they are barreling forward and then poof(!) the real circumstances of the crime became instantly clear to them and they rush in to save the day and wrap things up tight - Meh, that's annoying. Overall it was an exciting read- not my favorite Gardner but still worthwhile. ( )

Tessa Leoni has a great deal on her plate. She has been a Massachusetts state trooper for four years and has a beautiful six-year-old daughter, Sophie, whose father's name Tessa does not even know. Leoni has an inner toughness that she will desperately need as she faces an uncertain future. Her husband of three years and Sophie's stepfather, Brian Darby, has been shot to death, and the evidence points to Tessa as the perpetrator. Worse, Tessa's little girl, Sophie, has disappeared. The plotting is intricate, but not beyond plausibility. There are some surprises in store for the usually tough DD. ( )

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.
