Book Review: Come to the Table

Hello friends! I've got a book review for you guys today. This book is number 2 in the Souled Out Sisters novels. I posted a review on the first book here. I was really excited to see that Booksneeze was offering Book 2, Come to the Table by Neta Jackson, so I quickly requested it!

This book was definitely a continuation of Stand By Me. The only difference was that instead of telling the story from the point of view of Kat and Avis, it tells it now from Kat, Nick, and a little bit of Edesa. Nick was introduced during the first book as a close friend of Kat; Edesa is a member of Souled Out that Kat works closely with to figure out her plans. In this novel, Kat begins to seek a plan with the help of God, her friends and women from her church to use her ideas of teaching nutrition to impoverished people. However, with guidance, prayer and lots of help Kat gets the idea to open a food pantry at Souled Out Community Church. During this same time, Nick is appointed as a pastoral intern at the church. He struggles with this new position in numerous ways, one being that his feelings for Kat keep growing and he doesn't want anyone to think impurely of him since they are roommates at the moment, along with Bree, and Avis's daughter Rochelle and her son, Conny.

This was a great novel. I love that it continues from Book 1 so well and it answers questions that I had at the end of the first one. I love how it's not just a feel good book, but that Neta actually creates tension between the characters. I also love how the story keeps growing and the lives of the characters keep intertwining. If you're looking for a good read, I suggest picking up Books 1 and 2 and giving them a read. I wouldn't recommend reading this one without having read Stand By Me just because the story is so involved. However, you could read it by itself if you wanted because the main plot points are "recapped" so to say at the beginning of the book.
