More Than You’ll Ever Know

DEBUT Cassie Bowman’s long-held dream (to publish a true-crime book) is suddenly within her grasp. All she has to do is coax the narrative out of Lore Rivera, who was married to two men at the same time until her first husband murdered her second husband more than 30 years ago. As Cassie and Lore begin meeting and talking, Cassie starts to realize that the book she thinks she’s writing may not have the ending she expects. Gutierrez handles her debut novel’s multiple timelines, Texas and Mexico settings, and alternating viewpoints with aplomb, and crafts an enthralling story that not only explores the human fascination with true crime but also deftly plumbs the depths of marriage and motherhood.
VERDICT Mystery fans beguiled by Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch and women’s fiction readers who adored Taylor Jenkins Reid’s The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo will equally fall under the spell of this totally transporting tale.
