Review: Love You More by Lisa Gardner

Goodreads: 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?

Kritters Thoughts: An amazing thriller that kept me reading through all the twists turns and ups and downs. I didn't anticipate the final result until it unfolded right before my eyes with 20 pages left to go.

There are times when I fall deeply in love with a character, whether they are good or bad, but throughout the entire book I couldn't put my finger on my feelings towards Tessa Leoni. At times, I thought she was conniving and just plain horrible, but at the turn of a page I cared for her deeply and wanted so much for her to be absolutely and purely innocent.

I loved the relationship between the two detectives - D.D. Warren and Bobby Dodge. What a team and you knew from the beginning that these two cared deeply for each other and were the best of coworkers and friends.

A great book that I would absolutely pass onto both the males and females. A suspenseful story that keeps you reading until the last page.
Rating:absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Pages: 368

  2. I've seen this one and been intrigued by it. I'm not usually a "thriller" fan, but I think I might have to give this one a try. Great review!

  3. Jenn - I have a copy on loan to someone, but I can bring it along at the next book club.

  4. I haven't read anything by Lisa Gardner but that is a goal this year because I love thrillers.
