LOVE YOU MORE is my favorite book so far by Lisa Gardner and the reason is because of Tessa Leoni. I know this is a D.D Warren book but Tessa stole the spotlight from her.
There are so many things I loved about this story and I’ll start with Tessa. Talk about a sympathetic character you want to root for. Gardner did a brilliant job creating a character who drew you into her private world and made you wondered what the hell happened. Did she really kill her husband? What happened to her child? What is she hiding? Is she guilty or innocent? At the first everything seems deceptively simple, but then we are dealing with Lisa Gardner, and nothing is simple but it is deceptive. Tessa is strong willed, resourceful, clever, and damn tough and the hell she goes through the whole book, well you’ll see why she’s an awesome protagonist.
Other things I liked about the book. We get to see a softer and more conflicted side of D.D Warren, for an obvious reason. I love the dynamic relationship between Tessa and D.D, both women see something of one another in each other but there is distrust and antagonism when they meet. Talk about tension! We also get to see Bobby Dodge, who exemplifies the white knight on a steed, you can’t help but love the guy.
LOVE YOU MORE is compelling and believable thriller filled with tension that builds and builds with tense plotting. I loved it so much I even brought the audio version. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading thrillers, mystery ad suspense novels.
