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)

Excellent book!

This is a great suspenseful listen. It has all sorts of twist and turns and you will not stop listening until the book is finished.

Kept me engaged...

This book is well written. The author was pretty good at confusing the reader...you would think that you understood what was going on and then something would be revealed and it would confuse the story a bit. This book kept me on my toes. The narrator was good except for the two front teeth repition...I know it was part of the story line but it became a little overly melodramatic in parts. I could have done without that part.

Fast moving story

I have never listened to a book by Ms. Gardner, and I will have to start listening to more. This was a quick moving, interesting mystery- great plot twists and turns. Not at all boring....kept me looking forward to my time on the treadmill!

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.

Just how great is a mother's love?

Just how far would you go for your child? How strong is the loving bond between a mother and her child? Lisa Gardner deftly explores these questions within a complicated murder investigation. This is the fifth book in the Detective DD Warren Boston police-woman mysteries. This time DD is partnered up with her old lover, Bobby Dodge, in the Massachusetts State Police. They are investigating the apparent murder of the abusive husband of MA Stare police-woman, Tessa Leoni. Tessa has been brutally beaten, her husband, Brian, lies dead on the kitchen floor, BUT where is Tessa's 6 year old daughter, Sophie.

Lisa Gardner superbly intertwines the two voices of DD and Tessa to involve the reader in the thoughts of two different police-women: DD, who is just finding out that she is pregnant, and Tessa, the mother of the missing girl. The love between mother and child is uppermost in this book, even though DD is not at all sure she's meant to ever be a parent. But DD can't decide if Tessa loves her child or murdered the girl and is covering up her crime.

Amongst the thoughts and actions of these two women, we learn more and more about Tessa, her marriage, and the circumstances of Brian's life and death. The more we learn, the deeper and faster the thrills come as these two women decide just how much they are willing to do for the love of a child.

The mystery is fast passed and compelling, but the characters' thoughts and feelings as the action progresses, really makes this an excellent book.

What did you love best about Love You More?

I love lisa gardner books, but the narrator also brings the story to life, changing tones and delivering each character's perspective as needed. Very enjoyable!
