I hadn’t read anything by Lisa Gardner in a while, and after listening to the audio of
this book, I am ready to pick up all the ones I missed! Love You More is #5 in the
Detective D.D. Warren series but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone mystery, as I did.
I have to say the story is a page turner and the audio version is outstanding. Read by two women, Kirsten Potter and Katie MacNichols, the story is told from alternating points of view.
The opening scene is of a murder, told from the alleged murderer’s point of view, followed by the detective’s hypothesis and investigation into what happened. To add even more interest, the alleged murderer is a state trooper and her young daughter has gone missing. Like a good mystery, information is slowly doled out, and the detective (along with the reader) continually revises what she thinks really happened.
The story is not only a mystery with plenty of suspense, twists and turns, but raises the question of who you love and just how far you are willing to go to save or protect them. Along with the murder investigation, we get glimpses into what is going on in D.D.’s personal life… but I don’t want to give anything away!
This book can be enjoyed as a quick beach read, but even book groups would find ethical and moral questions to discuss.
I recommend you check this book out, but don’t blame me if you get the audio version and are late to work because you just can’t stop listening to one more track…
