All Tied Up in Knots

They're baaaack. The Yada Yadas are having some major troubles happening their group. Ruth is finally having her baby, but her husband wishes it never had happened. Avis's daughter and her abusive husband are shaking things up with Avis's new husband. Chanda wins the lottery and is spending it left and right. Flo's son is ruining their chances of starting a new life in a new house. Nony and Mark are beginning the long hard process of rehab. And then there's Jodi who's watching it all and having her own incidents involving a lemonade stand. One thing's for sure, it's never ever boring with these friends around.

In my opinion, this was my favorite of all the Yada Yada books. By this book, all of the characters have really developed and have been given their own spotlight.
These books all show how to trust God in different ways using almost every possible scenario that could exist. I'm amazed at all the adventures that the group has managed to have. Each book outdoes the one before! Jodi is still the main character and once again I found myself echoing her same thoughts about certain events like Chanda's lottery uses and Avis and her daughter. I think the characters have grown, they don't bicker as much, and they don't try to let little conflicts build up walls between them. I really like the house blessings that the group does. I want to have that done when I get my own house next time. I also envy Jodi's kids that they got to go to Cornerstone. I have always wanted to go there. Actually I'm pretty amazed that it was even mentioned, most adults don't really know or like most modern Christian rock bands, so it was really cool to read about the festival. I must also mention that I love the covers of these book. I want all these awesome socks! Once again I highly recommend this series. I am SO looking forward to reading the next book!

The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Caught by Neta Jackson is published by Thomas Nelson (2006)


  1. I can't wait to read this one! My book club is slowly making their way through the series so I have to wait. :(

  2. Deborah - saw your question about Karen Kingsbury on Cee Cee's blog. She churns them out really quickly and has a huge fan base but I have to say her stand alones are better than her series IMHO! That being said I have read all her books but her Redemption series and Firstborn are a bit repetitive and are probably why someone has called them soap operas! Ever After, A Thousand Tomorrows and A Time to Dance and When Joy Came to Stay would be some good choices to start with!
