The story is for the most part well written. The characters of Danielle and Victoria are sympathetic characters, each equally fighting a fierce battle. For Danielle that battle is her dark past and for Victoria that battle is raising her son Even. You learn so much about these women and what they had dealt with in their lives leading up to an ending that definitely surpasses that of Gardner's previous book, The Neighbor. The only problem here is with D.D. She played the same role in this book that she played in the last three books in this so-called series. Maybe Gardner tried to through in some character development for her by teaming her up with Alex Wilson who taught at the academy, but in the end all that really did was create someone for D.D to flirt and maybe get serious with. It didn't tell us what kind of person D.D is, why she does what she does what kind of family does she come from. She likes eating, sex and wearing nice clothes. That doesn't say much. She's kind of pushy and sometimes too much for her own good. She likes to be the boss. Her characters major development but she's still far from a Mary Sue. I may not like D.D, but I can somewhat understand her. She's busy workaholic who takes her job seriously. She may not be Harry Bosch or Jane Rizzoli, but she still far from Bella Swan. She actually does stuff.
I recommend this book for the interesting stories for Danielle Burton and Victoria Oliver; and even though the police work seen from D.D's perspective is interesting it still leaves much to be desired. Just like The Neighbor, it is a great story, but it's not D.D's story. Maybe Love You More will paint us a better picture of D.D Warren. And maybe we'll finally learn what "D.D" stands for,
The main character in this book' DD Warren, does not seem to be the type who will develop in serious ways as the series rolls forward. Thus far in the series, she doesn't seem to have much depth, unlike my all time favorite characters in action series -- Mitch Rapp, Gabriel Allon, and Jack Reacher. But that's ok. We all need a break at times from intensity and yearning for the next installment. And for a purely recreational series, this one by Gardener is perfect.
The story is well written and the characters well developed. The story is more about Danielle and her finding out about her family tragedy than Warren solving the crime.
I kind of felt that the woo-woo guy was the culprit but didn’t connect all the dots. The end was climatic with welcoming results.

Written in chapters that focus on a specific character in short burst whilst the main story develops in long chapters does not engender connection. All the characters and their stories evtually link but random verses of tunes and nursery ryhmes without any'hooks' to help them make sense in relation to the characters just adds to the confusion and disengagement.
Not her best work
