I Love You More by Jennifer Murphy
Release Date - June 17, 2014
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
Twelve-year-old Picasso Lane's life changes when her father is murdered. As is true of most murders, her mother is the first prime suspect, but that changes when police find her father had not one but three wives. Any one of them could have done it. As Piper and her mother bond with the lead detective, Piper slowly starts to unravel the things she knows regarding the murder and the secrets her father had been keeping.
I Love You More is quit addicting. It's told from three viewpoints: Picasso, the Wives, and Detective Kyle Kennedy. There is one more viewpoint, that of Picasso's father, but it comes into play much later and only one time, so I won't focus on it.
From the first page, I was hooked. I delve into any mystery novel to see if I can solve it before the detectives, and in this case, I was right, yet the author still threw a curve that I didn't see coming. I do love the element of surprise in a mystery and this one definitely surprised me.
Part romance, part coming of age, and a whole lot of mystery, I Love You More is a gripping summer read that left me craving some time at the ocean setting where some of it takes place.
