for I Love You More by Jennifer Murphy
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.
