Blog tour: More Than You'll Ever Know

Welcome to the blog tour for More Than You’ll Ever Know by Katie Gutierrez!

More about the book…

Lore Rivera was married to two men at once. She led a secret double life - until one man shot the other.

That's the story the world knows.

But true-crime writer Cassie Bowman wants to know more - about the mysterious woman at the heart of it all, and about what really happened the night of that tragic murder.

How did Lore lead two lives? How did it feel when it all came crashing down?

Cassie is surprised that Lore is willing to talk. But as what really happened that fateful summer of 1986 unfurls, will either woman be prepared when the truth comes to light?

More about the author…

Katie Gutierrez, a Mexican-American debut novelist from Texas, has an MFA from Texas State University, and has written for Harper's Bazaar, the Washington Post, Longreads, and more. She was born and raised in Laredo, Texas, a city on the U.S.-Mexico border, and now lives in San Antonio with her husband and two young children. More Than You’ll Ever Know is her debut novel.

My impressions…

Be ready to abandon all expectations and be wowed. It is a novel that reads like true crime but is, ultimately, fiction. It is a novel about a murder but it talks the language of love. It is a novel that should clearly be black and white in respect to what is morally correct but there are a lot of grey areas.

Three words to describe it. Gripping. Tragic. Addictive.

Do I like the cover? Intriguing, just like the novel.

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, this is her debut novel. And, holy moly, what a debut!
