Fans of Jackson's Yada Yada Prayer Group books will love the newest in her SouledOut Sisters series. Kat Davies, always impulsive, is trying to figure out how her passion for food and her new Christian faith can come together. Add to the mix two part-time jobs; Rochelle, her new roommate; Rochelle's little boy, Cony; and a burgeoning interest in her other housemate, Nick, and Kat certainly has her hands full. Nick, meanwhile, is adjusting to his new pastoral intern role at the SouledOut church. He is spending much of his free time with Cony, and Rochelle is also strongly attracted to him. As Kat and Nick dance around their mutual interest, their lives become more intertwined when Kat is inspired to start a food pantry at their church. Come to the Table is full of Jackson's signature blend of wit and heart. Her characters are totally relatable, and both fans and new readers will enjoy the perspective of this new generation of Chicagoans seeking faith and direction.--Richard, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist
