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...

Critic Reviews

"This book had me at the author’s name. Lisa Gardner…no one owns this corner of the genre the way she does - And Love You More might be her best ever." (Lee Child)
"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)
"A heart-pounding tale of family drama by the Mozart of thriller writers. I could not tear myself away." (Tess Gerritsen)

Edge of seat exciting

What made the experience of listening to Love You More the most enjoyable?

I felt the narration was very well done.

What does Kirsten Potter and Katie MacNichol bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I would have skipped over to many of the details to find out what happens next. I lack patience while reading and speed read everything.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely as I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

Excellent!

I love suspense and this book did not disappoint! I will definitely be listening to more from this author. Also this is the first book I've listened to with multiple narrators. Both narrators were entertaining and really kept the story moving.

Lisa Garnder Still on top of her game

Gripping from beginning to end!!!! I owe Ms Gardener an apology because I kind of trashed her with a previous book "The Neighbor" which was not her best. "Love You More" proved the she is still in fine form and I look forward to the next book in the DD Warren series. This is a MUST READ!!! Also kudos to the narrators, especially Kirsten Potter, for their consistently to brilliant performances.

Love it more!

Looking to earn your binge-reading badge? Pick this up. You won't be able to put it down. Great premise. Love how the details are dribbled out using two viewpoints and two voices. I can often figure out who done what before I'm halfway through, but not this time.

Brilliant Detective or Brilliant State Cop???

What did you love best about Love You More?

I liked the fact that I was hooked from the very get go.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The state cop that is the main character

What does Kirsten Potter and Katie MacNichol bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Personalities of the two main characters

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I got super frustrated with Detective DeeDee. She is supposed to be a brilliant cop but seemed to not have objectivity when it came to another female police officer that was pretty.

Any additional comments?

It's worth your time just know you'll be committed to it till it's finished so make sure you have time to listen. You won't be able to put it down.

Tedious

Ms Gardner would do well to pull out Strunk & White's and brush up on her writing skills. Sixty percent of her adjective's are gratuitous. (She might, also, pick up some Mike Connelly novels as a template for economy of narrative.)

Moreover, saddling women police officers with rather shopworn expressions of glibness in the face of violence is a poor vehicle for conveying strength among female characters. The "All I want for Christmas..." mantra was beaten to death.

Neither of the dueling narrators were compelling.

The story itself affords a nominal, if not at times, intriguing degree of complexity, but my suggestion for those looking for a good listen within this genre is to look elsewhere.
