My Review: 
"The Greatest Is Love "(The Men Of Freeman Book 1) by Kitra Kasper is the first book in the "The Men Of Freeman" series and let me say right off I will be reading the next book!. “ The Greatest Is Love” was a great read. It is a Christian novel but it deals with real issues but it doesn’t have any inappropriate scenes but it might not be appropriate for young teens as it dwells with premarital sex and child abuse. I want to say once again the scenes are nor graphic, but it did pull at my heart strings.

This book is a Christian Romance but so much more. It is also a story about forgiveness and trust and learning to let go and let God have control.

Dr. Joey signs a contract to be Freeman’s town doctor for two years and she is determined not to fall in love with the town’s lawyer, Brad Freeman. But God and the Brad’s family have other ideals.

Evan, Brad’s cousin is determined to beat Brad in winning Joey’s heart. 

This book kept me reading every word because I just had to see a happy ending and I knew how I wanted the story to end! I can’t tell you if it ended that way or not but I can recommend that you read and find out.

This book has a sweet little 4 year old boy who steals Dr.Joey’s heart and even this reader wanted to reach through the pages and give him a hug. 

Can Dr. Joey let go of her past and learn to risk being in a relationship where she doesn’t have to always be in control.

Brad is a bit of a kidder and I love his humor. 

Yes this book is an emotional read but I think that is what’s so good about it, you can believe the story and isn’t that why we read?  I know we want to read sometimes to escape reality but sometimes isn’t it good to read something that pulls at our heartstrings and then lets us know that good does come from heartache? I’m giving "The Greatest Is Love "by Kitra Kasper five stars.

I received a free copy of this book to review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am part of the CWA Review Crew.
