HARRY BENTLEY'S SECOND CHANCE

"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?

Dave Jackson and his wife, Neta, are the award-winning authors of the 40-volume Trailblazer series. The phenomenal popularity of Neta's Yada Yada Prayer Group series inspired them to write "parallel" spin-off novels, two stories taking place in the same context ... just the way it happens in real life. They live in the Chicago area, where these stories are set.

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!
