Love You More: A Novel

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)

    "What A Ride!!"

    Whenever I see Lisa Gardner's name on a title, I've got to have it! This lady does indeed have this genre sewn up. She rules!! I'm looking for more Lisa Gardner's books. I've read a lot of books and Gardner is one of the few authors I know will have me tingling with tension and exhales of wow, wow, wow!!

    "WOW!!!"

    This was my first Lisa Gardner audiobook and WOW!! It kept me listening. I didn't want to put it down!

    Everytime I thought I had it figured out, it turned in a different direction. I loved it and can't wait to read another of her books

    I started listening to audiobooks to help with my commute to work. I now listen to books while I sew and do my crafts.

    "Lisa Gardner never lets me down!!"

    I have read all of Lisa Gardner's books and have never been disappointed. The narrators really helped make this tense,edge of your seat, thriller come to life. One narrator as Tessa and the other narrator D.D.Warren, helped me keep things straight as both characters put pieces together, took pieces apart, over and over to solve this intricate mystery was exhausting! Another two thumbs up for Lisa Gardner!

    "Intriguing and gripping"

    I had read one other book by Lisa Garder and loved it. This was equally good. I love how she builds her characters.

    "Loved it!"

    Thoroughly enjoyable read. Kept me guessing all the way through. Not the same old predictable murder story.

    "Not Quite Believable"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Gardner and/or Kirsten Potter and Katie MacNichol ?

    I have since bought another two book by Lisa Gardiner, but both purchases were reluctant. Lisa's books are good at getting you interested in the beginning, but then when the "twist" is revealed I find myself wrinkling my nose at it and thinking "really?" I don't mind Kirtsen Potter's narrating, she is quite good, though she sometimes annoys me with her over the top "toughness" when portraying D.D. though I think she is only following how D.D.'s character has been written. I don't like Katie MacNichol, her voice had an annoying, whiny tone to it and I cringed when she narrated the little girl.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Gardner again?

    Same answer as above.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kirsten Potter and Katie MacNichol ?

    Kirsten Potter is fine. I think Rebecca Lowman would do a great job. I listened to her narrate Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and I thought she did a great job.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Love You More?

    ****SPOILER ALERT**** to be honest, I think I would have sent the whole book back and asked Lisa to rethink the entire story. D.D. and Bobby are supposed to be the best detectives/ investigators, switched on, smart, on the ball, yet from the beginning they weren't able to work out the husband had a gambling problem and that he owed money to some bad people? That's usually one of the first things cops tend to look at in a case of murder/ kidnap. They're supposed to be such great cops, yet they were left floundering and falling into every trap set out by the main character? I didn't find it very likely and it disappointed me.

    "Suspenseful !! Keep me wondering."
    What about Kirsten Potter and Katie MacNichol ’s performance did you like?

    The different voices. Good job knew who were the different characters at all times.
