Carol Kinsey has done it once again! Greater Love is a must read!
Trey Netherland is an undercover FBI agent posing as Rainey Meadows’ boyfriend. Rainey Meadows has been deceived. She wants answers. He wants to catch the bad guy. When they find themselves in the middle of Columbia, Trey and Rainey realize that they are searching for different things. Without giving too much away, Rainey loses her memory and is trying to figure out who she is. Trey finds himself torn between the lies and he has told her and the Truth that is fighting to reach his heart. Tangled in a dangerous plot, can Rainey trust the man whose lies put her heart in turmoil? Will Trey finally cry out to the only One Who can truly set him free? There is only one Truth and it’s in Him they find Greater Love.
This isn’t your cliche contemporary betrayal story. There is so much more to it. This is a story of a Christian girl who is trying to live her life for God, but finds herself betrayed by the guy she thought she was madly in love with. She finds herself in a tangle of lies and has no idea what is going on or who to trust.
Rainey’s character is refreshing. She doesn’t have the greatest upbringing, but is a Christian who longs to grow closer to God. She is the kind of girl that has high standards for guys. She doesn’t date just any guy and her number one rule is that he must be a born again Christian. I found that refreshing because I wish more girls were like her in that aspect.
Trey is not a follower of Jesus Christ for a majority of the book. Pretending to be Rainey’s boyfriend is hard work. He finds himself attending a Christian college, a Bible study, and spending a lot of time with other Christians. Rainey is so in love with God that she is constantly encouraging him to read the Bible with her. She plays a major impact in his life.
There is so much more that I can tell you about this story but I don’t want to give too much away because so much happens! I was not expecting so many twists and turns. It has all of the feels. I laughed, I cried, I cheered. I absolutely loved the plot! There are also themes of salvation, forgiveness, putting complete trust in God, sharing your faith with others, and so much more. God is a huge aspect of the book and readers will find themselves being pointed towards God.
I highly recommend this!
