BCB More Than You'll Ever Know
Set in Austin, Laredo TX and Mexico City. Two timelines, two very different women. True crime obsession meets domestic suspense.
In 1985, Dolores “Lore” Rivera marries Andres Russo in Mexico City, even though she is already married to Fabian Rivera in Laredo, Texas, and they share twin sons. Through her career as an international banker, Lore splits her time between two countries and two men, until the truth is revealed and one husband is arrested for murdering the other.
In 2017, while trawling the internet for the latest, most sensational news reports, struggling true crime writer Cassie Bowman encounters an article detailing that tr1agic final act. Cassie is immediately enticed by what is not explored: why would a woman who seemed to have it all lead a double life? Cassie sees an opportunity, she’ll track Lore down and capture the full picture, the choices, the deceptions that led to disaster. But the more time she spends with Lore, the more she questions the facts surrounding the murder itself. Soon, her determination to uncover the truth could threaten to derail Lore’s now quiet life—and expose the many secrets both women are hiding.
Presenting a window into the hearts of two very different women, it explores the many conflicting demands of marriage and motherhood, and the impossibility of ever truly knowing someone especially those we love.
MEXICAN AMERICAN AUTHOR: Like Lore, Katie was born and raised in the city of Laredo, and she infuses this novel with such incredible detail and imagery, a testament to her love for this place. Her goal for this book was to portray Mexican American characters whose identities are a source of power, and who are simply flawed people navigating a complicated world.
