    Very enjoyable book The circumstances that brought the wives together were not ideal yet I liked the camaraderie the women shared And to me at least the ending was a total surprise

    Well this was a weird little book I'm than a little surprised that so many people liked this I didn't care for the characters the storyline or the writing There were so many things that just didn't work to make the story or the characters plausible The skinny dipping the Barbie dolls the spying child the way she would ensure her scent and his lust blinded him There was a bit of an eww factor to some of this story and the rest wasn't much better

    Thank you Doubleday and GR giveaways for a copy of the book37 starsThis story has an interesting premise a man Oliver is murdered and his 3 wives are suspect but the wives supposedly have never met Oliver has children with each of these wives and 3 separate lives he tries to navigate The book starts off with police arriving at the scene of the crime and then the author works her way backwards to explain all that happened The chapters narratives switch from 3 different perspectives a daughter of one of the wives Picasso “The Wives” and a police investigator named Kyle “The Wives” chapters are interesting in a sense because they aren’t written from one particular wife’s point of view but as a sort of collective 3rd person point of view There were a few scenes that seemed silly to me and far fetched but the book did it’s job and kept me entertained the whole way through Right from the start we see the investigating officer fall in love with Picasso’s mom and this throws an interesting wrench in the whole investigation Picasso is an interesting character because she is smart for a 12 year old and is also doing some investigating of her own This book is not perfect but it’s an easy read Don’t be fooled it is not Gone Girl as many are comparing it to that It is it’s own interesting mystery with it’s own sociopaths told mostly through the eyes of a 12 year old

    This book was trying too many gimmicks at once a child narrator wise beyond her years the obsession with definitions the beat copit was too much for me


  8. says:

    I honestly picked up this book intrigued by the premisePlural wives and a young daughter beyond her years My my Who did in the scoundrel of a husband pray tell? After reading the first few pages the voice and perspective of this young Picasso was way off Even if she were gifted and a prodigy the dialog was forced and tilted as an adult trying desperately to pull off a young girl's mindset Yes maybe this would be entertaining for a beach read but the majority of us saw the ending coming on page 2 Out of nowhere surprise at the conclusion? Not hardly

    WARNING SPOILER ALERT All sorts of spoilers and an epic rant aheadWhat the f did I just read? It has been a while since I have read anything this dumb I honestly don't understand how so many people like this book This book is a nauseating combination of unbelievable and predictable I realize that you have to suspend your belief to a certain extent whenever you read a story but this pushes that to the absolute limit For anyone who is reading this book thinking that it will be a police procedural whoddunnit sort of mystery it is not exactly that It is the New Age Guide to Murder Seriously if the Sisterhood of the Travelling pants decided to murder a man it would probably go similar to the plot of this story I have A LOT of issues with this book This is a rant view You have been warned1 The Names The main character's name is Picasso Seriously? I feel like this was done mainly to work in Picasso's uote about art and truth there's a lot of philosophy shoved into this book but on that later If so that's a bit of a stretch Also there is another character named Audubon after the ornithologist2 First Meeting This is the moment when this review dropped down to 1 star and completely ruined any chance of me taking this book seriously After discovering that their husband had three wives all together the wives come together to meet for the first time These complete strangers commemorate the occasion by skinny dipping in the lake napping besides each other and toasting each other with wineWHAT?No really? What the f? Watch any episode of MauryJerry Springer involving a love triangle and you will now that this wouldn't happen Screaming? Yes Crying? Yes Emotional outbursts and blaming? YES Forming a sisterhood and swimming naked together? NO I just found this whole part of the story weird and so ridiculous I almost stopped reading 3 Lucy Baxter Talk about a Mary Sue character I was a preteen girl and I can pretty much guarantee that when a group of girls humiliate you and make you cry than once you stop trying to be friends Also how was this girl able to get the money to pay for the books that she gave Picasso?4 Picasso and her father So you just found out that your mom is plotting to kill your dad You have several months before the event Assuming that you love your father dearly which seems to be the case in this story wouldn't you make some sort of real effort to save him? Have than one vague conversation with your mother? Give Dad a heads up? Run away the night before so you miss your flight to the vacation destination? Picasso made so little effort to give her dad a chance 5 The Thought of Murder As much as the wives hate Oliver they all have children and at least three of these kids are old enough to show that they really and genuinely love their father Wouldn't that factor into your decision to want him dead? At least a little bit? Picasso practically begged her mother not to do it If for no other reason Oliver did appear to be a good father One would think that hitting him with a brutal divorce settlement would come to your thoughts before murdering him?6 The Order of the Wives These women hang out with each other for months after discovering his infidelities None of them storm out of the marriage they just kind of go with the flow Not a single woman confronts him about it The average would immediately go home and rip his head off Why do none of these women have normal reactions?7 Bert's psychic abilities and Jules' Barbies There are so many weird character traits in this book Once again really difficult to take this book seriously when there are so many unbelievable moments8 Reincarnation Weird Just weird I thought this would somehow he would be reborn as Diana's baby so Diana could love him completely honestly I might have liked this book a tiny bit if it did It would have been pretty clever but that was never brought up9 The Outer Banks The outer banks are probably my favorite place in the world There is no Cooper's Island in case you're curious Ocracoke and Bodie Island are real and Kitty Hawk where the Wright brothers worked is actually a part of the Outer Banks Also swimming miles away from shore in this particular area is a REALLY BAD IDEA Especially if you're swimming alone Dangerous rip currents can occur in these areas plus I know from personal experience one massive wave can come along and drag you across the ocean floor Trust me it's a painful experience 10 The Ending OF COURSE PICASSO DID IT There weren't any other suspects It can't be one of the wives that would be too obvious Plus the author spends so much time hinting that Picasso picked up many of her father's sociopathic tendencies she seemed the obvious choice11 Flowery languageExcessive philosophical musings the author goes on and on and on using sensual and new age language and ideas lots of swimming naked soothing baths in flower petals healing chanting etc I just don't believe that the average person thinks the way these people do Also there are massive chunks of philosophical internal monologues that drag the story to a haltOverall I just found this book utterly ridiculous It was laughable how weird this book gets and I was really just hoping for a descent mystery with normal characters This book was extremely disappointing I'm just glad it was short

    An unscrupulous husband’s murder produces many suspects in what is an absorbing debut Revolving around the murder of lawyer Oliver Lane who is found shot dead at his beach house on North Carolina’s Outer Banks The victim's wife seems the likely suspect until two other women come forward claiming to married to him and that sees the investigation go off in many unusual turns It is up to Detective Kyle Kennedy to try and unravel the mystery of who killed Oliver This is something that is made uite difficult due to lady's giving nothing away and the lack of evidenceAside from there similar haircuts and uniformly denying prior knowledge of the others’ existence the three women are are resolutely different The first wife Diana is artistic beautiful and is seemingly the typical Southern Lady Jewels is athletic and brusue and bookstore manager Bert the third wife is spiritual and nurturing Told from multiple viewpoints it is the voice of Diana's precocious dictionary reading 12 year old daughter Picasso that is the most interesting She knows than what she will admit and just like all the suspects keeps her cards well and truly to her chest as she tries to make sense of what's happening while worrying about her futureKennedy will have to think out of the box to have any hope of discovering the truth with the suspects recognizing the need to maintain there secrets and protect each other Overall I love You More is a thoughtfully written an original story that is let down some what by the awkward additional perspective narrative towards the end that if anything disrupts the flow of the story and a relatively standard plot that is only made up for by the well defined characters But this does not diminish what is an entertaining exploration of events ignited by love and lies
