WHO DO YOU LOVE?
A split-second decision and Brian Darby lies dead. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defence and for Boston detective D.D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter?
As D.D.’s homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic state-wide search for a missing child, she must move quickly in order to learn all of Tessa’s secrets and understand what has happened to the little girl.
But for Tessa, the worst has not yet happened. She is walking a tightrope, with no one to trust and nowhere to turn, as the clock ticks down to a terrifying deadline. She has one goal in sight, and she will use every ounce of her training to do what has to be done. All that matters is her child and no one could love her more…
Two women. With one question…
HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO SAVE YOUR CHILD?
As I finished January’s book really early, I started on “I Heart New York” around the middle of that month. However even by the end of the month, I was still struggling with it. So, on the 2nd February I decided to start on another book, “Love You More” by Lisa Gardner.
I really loved this book and it was very different to “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”. This was a sort of crime thriller, but a mild one. The book flicks between two storytellers – Detective D.D. Warren and Police Trooper Tessa Leoni. At first you begin the story quite confused (which is deliberate) and as the plot unravels, it both answers questions and adds more. However by about midway through the book, you’re starting to understand the bigger picture. The story builds and builds until it reaches its climax and ultimately the book is a very satisfying read.
I have never read anything by Lisa Gardner before and actually only picked up this book because it was a cheap Kindle read around the time I bought by kindle. However its taken me until now to actually read it and I’m so glad that I did.
Detective D.D. is apparently the main character in a series of books written by Lisa Gardner. I believe they are all stand alone books, though I haven’t read any others. I have to admit that after reading “Love You More”, I would definitely be tempted to pick up another of her books. However for now I’m starting with Divergent, as that is my March book.
