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.

Publisher's Summary

WHO DO YOU LOVE?

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?

AND HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO...

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?

...TO SAVE HER?

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.

Love you more...

"Tessa Leoni is a dedicated single mom when she is swept away by a man who turns out to be the wrong guy. Emotionally true, harrowing, and unputdownable. Brava, Lisa Gardner!" (Lisa Scottoline)

    Story
    "Common and predictable with a twist"
    What made the experience of listening to Love You More the most enjoyable?

    Narration


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have worked less at trying to convince the reader Tessa was crazy, I think it was a bit overdone "all I want for christmas is my two front teeth" arrrrgggghhhh ...ok I got it already...! I would have left out the foul language(as if). Also I would have written a more believable story for Shane, that "goading" story was a bit shallow and ridiculous.


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter and Katie MacNichol ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I can say I was particularly moved by any thing.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the story was common and predictable the bad guys for me were easy to spot however, there were lots of twists and turns in the telling of the story it kept me interested to see how it all connected. This author seems like a great writer and overall ll I did like the story just not 4 stars worth.

    "Repetitive, not much of a thriller..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, it dragged and repeated and repeated. Not up to her regular, well-written novels.


    Has Love You More turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not from this genre, but it was poor enough that I am now hesitant to try another Lisa Gardner book. I loved the past four I've read. May try one more, but not ready still. Felt like this book would never end. I don't even know why I stuck with it. Well performed though, I liked that the two main, women characters had different actresses performing the novel.


    Do you think Love You More needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, it should've ended sooner.


    Any additional comments?

    Skip this one. Gardner has better, previous works.

    "Kind of annoying"
    How could the performance have been better?

    I didn't like the narrator's voices... I found her representation of the child particularly annoying.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I usually like Lisa Gardner's stories, but this one was not as good as some of her others. It did, however, have sufficient mystery and surprise to keep me listening until the end.

    "Never been more in disagreement with other reviews"

    I'm not sure who or what other people are listening to. This is a poorly written novel with weak, trite characterizations. Poorly read as well. How this gets near 4 stars is beyond me. I've listened to more than 100 audio books and this ranks as one of the 3 worst.

    "Disappointing!"

    It's interesting that this book got 4 stars and positive remarks from many readers - guess it shows the wide spread range of what we all think is entertaining. I, for one, thought it was a waste of money to buy it! I saw through the plot early on, so it got tedious and boring listening to the repeated discussions of the same details of the case over and over and over - it was like the author was filling pages with words we'd already heard several times already. In my opinion, the main character reader was so syrupy and almost whiney sounding - just came across overdone!!! I love a good mystery, a well-written and thought-out plot and storyline, and interesting character development. Sorry, I just didn't like this book!
