I Love You More tells the story of one man, three wives, and 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 detective 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Murphy’s debut, an absorbing coming-of-age story, revolves around the murder of Oliver Lane, shot dead at his beach house on North Carolina’s Outer Banks…Solid, well-defined characters.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Oliver Lane was a busy family man. He had three families going, with growing children (and one in the womb) from three different wives. One day, Oliver is found, his scheming head shot off, on the porch of his summer house on an island on the North Carolina coast. His twelve-year-old daughter discovers his body. And this girl, Picasso Lane, is the first point of view in Murphy’s debut mystery…Tangled relationships…good suspense and a nicely creepy tone throughout.”

    Booklist

  • “An unscrupulous husband’s murder produces many suspects in Murphy’s absorbing debut…A thoughtfully written, original, and entertaining exploration of events ignited by love and lies.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “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. In its pages, Jennifer Murphy deftly balances light and dark, humanity and heartlessness, love and murder, and creates characters so well drawn you feel as if you know them, as well as a mystery so compelling you can barely look away from the page. Stunning.”

    Jennifer Niven, author of Velva Jean Learns to Drive

  • “A book I couldn’t put down. A literary mystery that deftly uses multiple points of view to reveal secrets, betrayals and the complications of the human heart.”

    Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle

  • “Sexy, smart, and thoroughly addictive, I Love You More is a thrilling work of fiction, so deftly plotted you can’t put it down. This is the kind of book you’ll stay up late for, the kind you’ll recommend to everyone you know. It’s that good. Jennifer Murphy’s novel explores the reckless intensity of love in all its incarnations, how desire shifts into possession, and how the most dangerous lies are those we tell ourselves. I Love You More is that rare and wonderful thing—a masterful debut.”

    Dawn Tripp, author of Game of Secrets
