No Greater Love by Judah Knight is a tale of adventure and romance, the sixth book in the Davenport Series. The Davenports set out with their friends, Lacy, Kerrick, Jose, and Ann to seek the ancient treasure lost in a Mexican city. Their troubles start with the kidnapping of Lacy by Miguel, a ruthless man who once took her from Eleuthera to the Bahamas. With a friend entangled with what appears to be a Mexican cartel, their plans are hijacked and they find themselves in a race to save him. But they can’t help but be intrigued by the lost city of a Viking King in the tenth century — King Harold Bluetooth’s lost city of gold. Can they save their friend and uncover the treasure?

No Greater Love is a tale of adventure that leads to love in the most unexpected of moments. I was pulled into the story by the strong writing and the author’s ability to create focused and exciting scenes. The novel starts with Lacy being taken at knifepoint by a guy with a sinister promise: “You’re mine now. We’ll find a nice villa where we can really get to know one another.” I was immediately intrigued and wanted to know what happened next. The short chapters are carefully and meticulously crafted in a way that leaves the reader wanting to turn the page to the next. The characters are fully drawn and it is interesting to follow them as they navigate a dangerous world, with drug cartels and other dangers lurking around every corner. The whole Mexico trip was supposed to be about looking for the lost city and King Harold Bluetooth’s treasure, not searching for a guy hooked on drugs. It is filled with drama and the beguiling writing kept me racing through the pages. Judah Knight plotted this novel well and executes it like a master.

No Greater Love is a romantic adventure novel written by Judah Knight. Lacy Henderson eagerly awaits her marriage to Kerrick Daniels while her Aunt Meg and Uncle Jon seek to locate the ancient Mesoamerican 'City of Gold' present in the folklore of the Nahuans. But things get complicated for the Davenports as an old nemesis, Miguel Martinez, comes back and plans to kidnap Lacy. Meanwhile, Jon Davenport continues his efforts to rescue Freddy from the clutches of the Mexican cartel and springs into action when he receives information about Freddy's involvement with the gang members of Los Unidos. As events escalate further, the Davenports seek the help of President Randall Johnson to get protection in Mexico. Afterward, they resume their efforts to locate the lost treasure while Miguel continues his quest.

No Greater Love is a slice-of-life novel about love and family that will entertain Christian and non-Christian readers alike. Judah Knight's book feels universal in its themes and, despite its Christian connotations, can also be seamlessly enjoyed by non-Christian readers. The characters are well-realized and easily relatable. Lacy and Kerrick steal the show, but I found Jon and Meg to be equally compelling characters. Jon, particularly, feels like a leader that anyone can rally behind. The pacing of the narrative suits the plot and the slow burn storytelling style of Judah Knight. The Christian undertones of the narrative enhance the story and make the tale all the more intriguing. Overall, I enjoyed No Greater Love. I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates romance novels with religious undertones.

No Greater Love is the sixth book in the Davenport Series by Judah Knight. Kerrick was excited to see Lacy once again. After the whole fiasco with Hannah, Kerrick rejoined Jon and Meg for a new adventure to find lost ancient treasure. The entire gang was supposed to be there. Jon and Meg were expecting Kerrick, Lacy, Ann, and Jose to join them in Mexico; however, an old foe came back to visit them, and he had his eyes set on Lacy. However, Lacy was not the only one who needed their help. A friend had become embroiled in the Mexican Cartel and needed help. It was up to the Davenports and Co. to help him out of this mess. The only issue was, they had to help Lacy first to get her out of the clutches of an old enemy who would stop at nothing until he had Lacy all for himself. Can they help Lacy? Will they ever be able to move on from the ghosts of their pasts?

Although I hadn’t read the previous novels in the series, I had no issue finding a connection with the characters and getting immersed in the story. Kerrick was the character who stood out to me the most, maybe because of his relationship with Lacy. I won’t say the name of their old enemy and spoil it for you, but I can say that he was despicable. Judah Knight shared emotions well. The synergy of the whole gang was excellent. They all understood each other and wanted what was best for the rest of the group. Jon and Meg had the kind of relationship that didn’t need a conversation. The author evoked feelings in me that I was not expecting. The mystery behind their friend being caught up with the wrong people, Lacy being caught in the mess, and the whole group's struggles were very well narrated. No Greater Love is perfect entertainment.
