More Than You'll Ever Know by Katie Gutierrez is a mystery centered on bigamy, which would not be that unusual except that this bigamist is a woman. Lore Rivera was married to Fabian Rivera and lived with him and their small twin sons in Laredo, Texas. She also married Andres Russo in 1985 Mexico City. How did this come about?

This is the question that absorbs aspiring true-crime writer Cassie Bowman, who believes that finding the answers will launch her career. She eventually does manage to engage with Lore and becomes obsessed with discovering who really murdered one of the husbands, despite the fact that the other is serving a prison sentence for the crime.

Cassie has dark secrets of her own, and Lore learns what Cassie has been hiding, just as Cassie investigates her past. When I first read a summary of the novel, it seemed an odd kind of plot, but Katie Gutierrez makes it plausible. Not only that, she makes her bigamist very likeable to the reader as well as to Cassie.

The questions - who the killer really was, whether Cassie will discover the truth, and finally what she will do about it - pull reader interest through this most intriguing story.
