One man, three wives, the perfect murder. A scintillating novel of betrayal and conspiracy.
Picasso Lane is twelve years old when her father, Oliver, is murdered at their summer beach house. Her mother, Diana, is the primary suspect—until the police discover his second wife, and then his third. The women say they have never met—but Picasso knows otherwise. Picasso remembers the morning beautiful Jewels showed up at their house, carrying the same purse as her mother, and a family portrait featuring her father with two strange boys. Picasso remembers lifting the phone, listening to late night calls with Bert, a woman heavily pregnant with Oliver's fourth child. As the police circle and a detective named Kyle Kennedy becomes a regular fixture in their home, Picasso tries to make sense of her father's death, the depth of his deceit, and the secrets that bind these three women.
Cunningly paced and plotted, I Love You More is a riveting novel of misplaced loyalty, jealousy, and revenge.

My Review 

I LOVE YOU MORE by Jennifer Murphy, a debut novel, narrated by Dorothy Dillingham Blue (Picasso-outstanding), Johnathan McClain, Cassandra Campbell (always a winner), and Danny Campbell. Highly recommend the audiobook, which will keep you laughing and intrigued with this crazy cast of southern characters- a riot!
An engaging coming-of-age story, revolves around the murder of twisted and charismatic lawyer, Oliver Lane, at his beach house on North Carolina's Outer Banks. The victim had three wives starting with his first and legal wife, Diana, a true Southern belle, artistic, beautiful and gracious,and the mother of his word-obsessed smart 12-year-old daughter, Picasso. 
The other wives: Jewels, an architect and the second wife, is athletic, angular and brusque; and cerebral bookstore manager Bert, the third wife, is nurturing and spiritual. 
Told from multiple points of view, readers hear from before and after the murder, while readers get an inside view of the manipulative sociopath narcissist, and his chosen targets. 
I enjoyed the multi-narrators with different voices, making for an entertaining read for a whodunit mystery. From Oliver/Peter, Jewels, Bert, Diana and detective Kyle Kennedy- a novel of conspiracy, lies, deceit, revenge, jealousy, and betrayal—a psychological thriller! (Nice front cover which draws you in)
Look forward to reading more from this author! Would like to hear more from Picasso and her adventures for a sequel.
