Come to the Table: A SouledOut Sisters Novel By Neta Jackson

I received this book from for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions stated here are my own.

Book Description:

Kat Davies is suddenly wondering if her good deed was a bad idea.
Kat may be new in her faith, but she’s embraced the more radical implications of Christianity with reckless abandon. She invited Rochelle—a homeless mother—and her son to move in the apartment she shares with two other housemates. And she’s finally found a practical way to channel her passion for healthy eating by starting a food pantry at the church.
Her feelings for Nick are getting harder to ignore. The fact that he’s the interning pastor at SouledOut Community Church and one of her housemates makes it complicated enough. But with Rochelle showing interest in Nick as a father-figure for her son, their apartment is feeling way too small.
But not everyone thinks the food pantry is a good idea. When the woman she thought would be her biggest supporter just wants to “pray about it,” Kat is forced to look deeper at her own motives. Only when she begins to look past the surface does she see people who are hungry and thirsty for more than just food and drink and realizes the deeper significance of inviting them to “come to the table.”

My Thoughts:

Come to the Table is the second book in Neta Jackson's SouledOut Sisters series and it does not disappoint. Neta Jackson's Yada Yada series were the first Christian Fiction novels I read and I was hooked from the first chapter. I have read all of her series that have branched off from the Yada Yada series. These books are so real and the characters are well written and again real people with real situations.  It is great to see characters carried over from The previous series still in supporting situations and being able to continue their journey. The new characters are fresh and really help continue the stories.  Neta Jackson writes with such authority that I am hooked from the start and can't put it down. I am always sad when the book ends, having to wait for the next one.  

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction. Come to the Table can be read stand alone but you do miss the deep connections the characters have so I recommend reading the other books. I always look forward to any books Neta Jackson has coming out next......can't wait to see what is next for these characters.  

I give this book 4 stars!
