Received from a Bookmooch member in Nebraska.
Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter?

Journal Entry 2 by wingperryfranwing at Elk Grove, California USA on Thursday, January 26, 2023
I have read a couple of Lisa Gardner's thrillers in the past including Crash & Burn which is the third book in the Tessa Leoni series. In it, Tessa is a private investigator and some of her backstory that takes place in Love You More is mentioned. This made me want to read Love You More to get the details. Anyway, this novel tells how Tessa, a State Police Officer in Massachusetts, is accused of killing her husband and her young daughter, Sophie. She is found brutally beaten next to her husband who has been shot in the chest three times with Tessa's service revolver. So was her husband a wife abuser? Tessa was hit hard in the head with a bottle resulting in a concussion and her visit to the hospital also revealed some older injuries that could have been spousal abuse. Did she get tired of the abuse and decide to kill her spouse? Or did something else happen? D.D. Warren and Bobby Dodge are put on the investigation but all is not as it seems. The autopsy of Tessa's husband reveals he was killed earlier and Tessa winds up in jail but what happened to Sophie? The story is told from the perspective of two women police officers, Tessa and D.D. who finds it hard to believe that a mother could harm her daughter but she has seen a lot worse during her time with the police.

I enjoyed this tense thriller. It had a lot of twists to the story but it really wasn't too surprising. I have liked the other Gardner novels I have read and I'm sure I'll be reading more by her in the future.
