I really can't wait for them to do "Catching … [Read more...]

Book Review~Who Is My Shelter by Neta Jackson

After much anticipation, I finally got to read the final book in the Yada Yada House of Hope series. It was definitely worth the wait, but I was distressed to see that she has no plans for any further “Yada Yada” books. As I have mentioned in other posts, I really was able to connect to the characters in her books. They are real, approachable, and they feel like they are your real life … [Read more...]
