‘Love You More’ by Lisa Gardner

Published by Orion, 21 July 2011. ISBN: 978-1-4091-0106-2

D. D Warren and her former lover Bobby Dodge are called to the home of state police trooper Tessa Leoni, whose husband lies dead on the floor.  Tessa is arrested after she confesses that she shot her husband.  But where is Tessa’s six-year-old daughter?

As D. D and Bobby try to make sense of the changing story told by Tessa, we learn about Tessa and her life through a series of flashbacks. Despite the many conflicting statements made by Tessa one thing emerges, and that is that Tessa loves her daughter more than anything or any one - but where is she? Did Tessa kill her to protect her and if so from what, and if she did, why now kill her husband?  D. D and Bobby debate these questions as they set in motion a nationwide search for the little girl, although D.D is convinced they are looking for a body, particularly once she delves back into Tessa past and finds damning information about Tessa.

This tale is fast paced from the opening line ‘who do you love?’ and has more twists than a corkscrew, it is a riveting read. No one is what they seem, and the story reaches a terrific climax.  Highly recommended.
