Description


Picasso Lane is twelve years old when her father, Oliver, is murdered at their summer beach house in North Carolina. Her mother, Diana, is the primary suspect . . . at least until the police discover his second wife, Jewels, and his third, Bert. The new widows say they have never met--but Picasso knows otherwise. She remembers the late-night visits, the hushed phone calls, and the whispered planning.
 
Soon, however, it becomes clear that the “perfect murder” was not so perfect after all. Each woman pleads innocence, claiming that she backed out of the plan at the last second. And as Picasso sorts through the lies and half-truths, I Love You More speeds toward an ending that no one will see coming.

“A genuine whodunit that will keep you guessing.” —BookPage
 
“Sexy, smart, and thoroughly addictive.” Dawn Tripp, author of Game of Secrets

"A book I couldn't put down.” Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle
 
“Suspense and high drama.” —Daily News
 
“When I really, truly love a book, I feel a kind of deep excitement-envy-admiration that verges on awe. My requirements: the story must make me forget everything but it, and the writing must be lean, evocative, and powerful. I Love You More is all of these things. I really, truly love it so much that I wish I’d written it myself. . . . Stunning.” —Jennifer Niven, author of Velva Jean Learns to Drive
 
“A debut with pizzazz." —The Free-Lance Star (Fredericksburg, VA)

“Absorbing. . . . A thoughtfully written, original and entertaining exploration of events ignited by love and lies.” —Kirkus Reviews


“Not only an achievement in narrative control and suspense, but a mystery that is as much about its characters' inner lives as its gripping plot. I Love You More is a terrifically ambitious debut.” —Teddy Wayne, author of The Love Song of Jonny Valentine
