Overview

"To be a father like God, to have God as his father ... perhaps Harry was being given a chance at both."

Retired Chicago cop, Harry Bentley, was lying low. He'd blown the whistle on a gang of rogue cops and was awaiting the day when Internal Affairs would call him to testify and help put their leader, Lieutenant Matty Fagan, behind bars.

His cover was working as a doorman in a luxury highrise on Chicago's lakefront. Then Gabby Fairbanks and her husband moved into the building's penthouse. She brought home a bag lady, got a job at the Manna House Women's Shelter, found her life falling apart, and managed to entangle Harry in the whole affair. (Gabby's story is in Neta Jackson's parallel novel, WHERE DO I GO?) But there was an upside. Through Gabby, Harry meets the Yada Yada brothers and the classy Estelle Williams and envisions a second chance at romance.

The Yada Yada brothers provide a new circle of friends to replace his old CPD cohorts. But when Harry discovers he has a grandson he didn't know about, will he find the faith to take on the boy as a "second chance" to be the father he'd failed to be to his own son-even when the boy creates new dangers in Harry's fight against corruption, and may derail his "second chance" at love?

Editorial Reviews

Reflections from a Creative Life - Janelle Clare Schneider
Harry Bentley's Second Chance beautifully captures the flavor and style of the Yada Yada books, yet gives a different perspective on these ladies we've come to love. Though Harry's story alone is engrossing, it was an added layer of delight to follow his journey as he met and came to know each of the ladies and their husbands. I hope there are many more Yada Yada Brothers novels to come!
Christian Books Examiner - Angela Washington-Blair
Told from the main character’s point of view, this book will appeal to both male and female readers. With interesting narratives and subplots, the story deftly moves along, complete with both humorous and suspenseful moments. Although some of the characters and dialogue may seem stereotypical, readers will still be drawn into the fast-paced, but never preachy story.

This novel is a “parallel novel” to Neta Jackson’s Where Do I Go, part of the new Yada Yada Ho
A Peek at my Bookshelf - Deena Peterson
I've never seen this done before--parallel novels, covering the same time period, but from different vantage points. Just enough similarity to tie to the two together, but enough differences to make each unique and distinct.

And no other writing duo could pull it off with flair, believability and cohesiveness besides Dave and Neta Jackson!

    Great book; Awesome idea!

    I loved the Yada Yada series, and was delighted when Neta Jackson's first book in the new House of Hope series mentioned some of my favorite Yada Yada characters. I'm always sad when I come to the end of her books, though.

    After I read "Where Do I Go?", I discovered Neta's husband, Dave, had written a parallel novel, "Harry Bentley's Second Chance" ISBN:978-0-9820544-0-6. I loved the idea of two intertwined stories occurring simultaneously. Dave's story is written from the perspective of Harry Bentley, and it includes struggles with faith, relationships, and other life issues. There's drama, suspense, tears and humor.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this book! Dave and Neta are planning more parallel novels to continue Gabby's and Harry's stories. Check out their web site for more information about these authors and their books: www.daveneta.com

    AWESOME Yada Yada men's novel!

    If you love the Yada Yada Prayer Group series, you will LOVE the Yada Yada Brother novel, "Harry Bentley's Second Chance". This book is a parallel novel to "Where do I go?" from Dave's wife Neta. The books compliment each other nicely. <BR/><BR/>I could not put the book down and the police drama was fun to learn about. It was great to see Harry begin his relationship with God and find love! Many characters from the original Yada Yada series pops up in this book. You will be very surprised by Carl Hickman. Go Carl.

    The Male Side of Yada Yada

    As an avid reader of the Neta Jackson Yada Yada series, I enjoyed reading Harry Bentley's story. His perspective offers a good view of an honorable man, and also adds dimension to the stories of the Yada Yada prayer sisters. For readers who enjoy a good story about people who are Christian, caring, and successfully facing challenges of everyday living in today's society, this book is worth reading. Dave Jackson, husband of Neta, uses a readable, down-to-earth style that holds' the reader's attention.
