Neta Jackson kicks off the third book in her Yada Yada Prayer Group series with a polar bear plunge in the bitter cold Lake Michigan. The unpredictable fun starts there and never lets up. When Stu moves in upstairs from Jodie he starts trouble that may test Jodie’s comfortable faith.
Jackson has a heart for crossing racial barriers and healing cultural divides. In The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real, she does a masterful job of it, while making us laugh.
If you’re a fan of the series then you’ll love getting reacquainted with Jodie, Avis, Yo-Yo, Florence, and all their families. If you’ve never read one of Jackson’s books before, go back to the beginning and read them all to get up to speed for the fun, laced with honesty and sometimes difficult truths in The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real. -- Mary Connealy, Christian Book Previews.com
The Yada Yada Prayer Group has become a national phenomenon, with thousands of women across the country joining reading groups to live and learn through their fictional sisters. Book Three finds Jodi Baxter's oasis turned upside down when her upstairs neighbors move out and her nemesis, Leslie (Stu) Stuart, moves in! Avis' middle-aged cocoon is turned inside out, too, by a beau from her past, and Chanda's future has never looked brighter. But Stu's proximity to the Baxter household will draw her secret to the surface-and no one is ready for the crisis that will follow or the question the group will have to face: Just how far does forgiveness go when it requires investing your life in the forgiven one?
