First-Rate Suspense - ...

First-Rate Suspense - Her best so far! Near the start of Thriller Award-winner Gardner's gripping fifth novel featuring Boston PD Sgt. Det. D.D. Warren (after Live to Tell), D.D.'s former partner and one-time lover, Det. Bobby Dodge, of the Massachusetts State Police, asks her to look into what appears to be a clear-cut homicide case. The evidence suggests that Tessa Leoni, a state trooper colleague of Bobby's, shot and killed her abusive husband, Brian Darby, who may have kidnapped her six-year-old daughter, Sophie. But Tessa won't talk about her bruises, her husband, or what might have happened to her child. D.D. examines every detail about the family, while Tessa uses her skills to manipulate the investigation. From Tessa's point of view, we learn about her and Brian's courtship, his affection for Sophie, and how the marriage began to disintegrate. Gardner sprinkles plenty of clues and inventive twists to keep readers off-kilter as the suspense builds to a realistic, jaw-dropping finale.

Okay. Whoa. Let me cat...

Okay. Whoa. Let me catch my breath for a minute. This is a psychological thriller novel that is absolutely captivating. It's got everything that a book like this should have: thrills, unsuspecting twists, murder, breathtaking knuckle whitening suspense, questions and fantastic who-dun-its. This novel is written by a new-to-me author but she's certainly not new to the craft of writing. From page one, Gardner twisted me into the story and by the final page I was dizzy from all the turns, twists and bumps along the way. Tessa's story is phenomenal. A state trooper by day, and an abused wife turn murderer by night??? Well, that's just one of hundreds of questions that you'll need to read this book to find the answers to. Tessa's 6 year old daughter vanished.....or did she? Will there be enough time to save her, or is she already perished? Some more questions that are answered about the masterfully written pages. And what does Detective Warren find out as she investigates and digs into the family and breaks them down? Have I got you curious yet? I sure hope so! It's also my hope that you will take the time to read this emotionally complex, more than 5 star worthy, WOWtastic suspense novel. Lisa Gardner knows what a suspense lover craves in a novel and mixes it up to throw us an amazing novel that is so life like you won't know you've just read a novel-you'll feel like it ACTUALLY happened to YOU. Oh and one more thing.....what would YOU be willing to do for someone you loved so deeply????

Its been many years s...

It's been many years since I've read one of Lisa Gardner's novels. I think I read the first book in this series of five, but I'm essentially coming to Love You More as a stand alone. And while there would surely be more depth and resonance if I knew the entire history of Boston homicide detective D.D. Warren and state trooper Bobby Dodge, Gardner does a fantastic job expositing what the reader needs to know. Namely, that the two were once lovers, and that while there were some bruised emotions at one time, they're both happy with other partners now. Which is good, because they've been thrust together investigating a shooting. State trooper Tessa Leoni used her service revolver to shoot her husband of three years in the kitchen of their home. What might appear as an open-and-shut case of a battered woman snapping is complicated by the fact that Leoni's six-year-old daughter is missing. The story is told in chapters alternating between Leoni's first-person narration and third-person omniscient from the D.D./Bobby side of the investigation. And it's clear, right from the beginning, that there's more to the story than Leoni is letting on. She freely admits that she is lying to the police within the confines of her own skull, but the knowledge that she alone holds is teased out only gradually throughout the novel. Meanwhile, D.D. and Bobby are racing against the clock to find an innocent child, and this case has really gotten under D.D.'s skin for reasons both personal and professional. While police procedurals are not generally my favorite, I read a lot of mysteries and thrillers. Plus, I'm something of a smarty-pants; I'm good at figuring these things out. Let me be the first to admit that Lisa Gardner had me as bewildered as the cops in this intricately-plotted page-turner. Leoni's case is complex, sad, and hugely compelling. And even without having read all of the D.D./Bobby books, I found these characters to be richly drawn, appealing, and believable. I enjoyed this novel from start to finish, and now that I'm back in this world, it's going to be very hard to resist grabbing the next book in the series.

I REALLY enjoyed this ...

I REALLY enjoyed this book. Half the time, I was trying to figure out who shot who and was she guilty or wasn't she? The author would right something and you'd think Tessa Leoni killed her whole family and then the author would write something else and you'd change your mind. I hardly ever give 5 stars but I really thought this book deserved them.

What will a mother do ...

What will a mother do to protect her daughter? This thriller has a Mass. State Patrol's first female officer who uses her skills to elude our hero (D.D. Warren) and find her kidnapped daughter. Told from two perspectives--Tessa Leoni and D.D. Warren, the reader gets the idea that the police often don't get it right and that allows our other heroine to elude them. Books get five stars on my list if I can't put it down; there were several places where I thought that the story might end, but still had time on the listen. Fast paced--you wonder who dunit and don't learn until the end. On to the next D.D. Warren book and since this is Tessa Leoni's first, maybe there are more?
