Greater Love by Robert Whitlow

                                 Book Description:

  The Tides of Truth series follows one lawyer's passionate pursuit of truth--in matters of life and the law.

As the storm clouds gather, Tami does her best to weather the growing turbulence in every area of her life.

She's just accepted a job with a law firm but now wonders if she made the right decision. She has two strong men vying for her heart--and is about to lose them both if she can't determine which one is right for her.

And Tami's new case is anything but simple. When she first meets her prospective client, she immediately knows the rough young teen is lying, guilty...and utterly terrified of something beyond the charges she's facing. What she doesn't realize is just how far reaching the effects of the case will go. Or how close to home the deadly results will hit. For by the time the storm breaks, someone close to Tami will have paid the ultimate price.

Through it all, Tami will experience greater sacrifice, greater friendship, and greater love than she's ever known.

My review:

This whole series is different from Whitlow's normal writing. I prefer his more suspenseful/legal thriller type, but this is a good series. I like his characters, and have enjoyed a whole series revolving around the same characters.

This book, the third in the series, is the best of the three, in my opinion. The main character faces some rough choices, not only with the two men who are interested in her romantically, but also with the case she is working on. As with the other books in the series, Tami's more conservative faith faces some unique challenges. This is the final book in this series, and had a couple of surprises, but Whitlow did a great job bringing the series to a fitting conclusion.
