Customer Reviews

This is a suspense book with a great story line.
DJJ
As we delve into Harry and Estelle's lives, we see how God "derails" many of the plans they lay out for their future so that His will is done.
niboreus
It was so fun to revisit the story from the first book, but from another characters perspective.

Dave and Neta Jackson have perfected the concept of parallel novels to the nth degree. I have personally never heard of it until I discovered this pair of remarkable writers in their group of novels, The YaDa YaDa Prayer Group, YaDa House of Hope, and the Harry Bentley books.
The Windy City Neighbors series has begun more adventures for some of the characters we have met before in the YaDa books. In particular, the first novel, Grounded, provided one story about a Christian music artist who had experienced some lifeshaking setbacks. Within that story we reconnected with Estelle and Harry. Now in Derailed, we see the story that started with Grace Meredith from a new perspective...Harry's.
I love how this concept of parallel novels takes us on a whole new adventure while reminding us of parts of Grace's story. But Harry's part in the story fleshes out details that were incidental in the first novel. We learn about how God is really teaching Harry to rely on Jesus to have the power to bring Harry through events in his life, rather than needing to know beforehand exactly how certain circumstances are going to work out. As Harry says himself, "Maybe it was okay if I still didn't understand it all. If I could get my comfort from seeking Jesus rather than wrestling everything to the ground, then maybe I ws being equipped to pass the same comfort on to other people."
This particular writing avenue seems unique to the Jackson duo of Dave and Neta. I love it! And I can't wait for the next adventure!

I tried my hardest on a few different occasions to read this book to the end but I was unable to actually finish reading it. The writing style (in Book #2 - "Derailed)" was so different from book #1 and it felt like it was written more from a male perspective, which is fine, but I was just unable to connect with Harry's character and even get into the book. This book also covered much of the information that had already been presented in the first novel ("Grounded").

I hated having to write this low scoring review because I have been a Dave & Neta Jackson fan since the Yada Yada prayer series. But I definitely enjoyed book #1 and I look forward to finishing the Windy City neighbors series as more novels are written. I will give it some time and try to finish reading this book all the way through. The reason I would still recommend someone else to read this particular novel is because you may have a different perspective than what I have. Whatever you decide, happy reading to you!

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Dave and Neta Jackson once again release a novel with no disappointment! "Derailed" the second in the "Windy City Neighbors" series finds Harry Bentley (Parallel Character) dealing with the illness and eventual death of his mom, return of his son, return to work as a detective, and buying a new house ... We see characters from the "Yadda Yadda" Series and easily find ourselves engrossed in their daily lives ... I love to see a title that tells a contemporary story without compromising language and content.

I have been a fan of Christian fiction authors Neta and Dave Jackson since reading the Yada Yada series a few years ago. This is the second in the Windy City Neighbors series and a parallel novel to Grounded. The Jacksons have a talent for making the characters in their books seem like family, and this book is no exception. The characters we are introduced to in Grounded take center stage in Derailed, and the questions we were left with get answers. As usual, this book has a few twists and turns and enough suspense so you don't want to put it down. But the intrigue and mystery started in Grounded is finally solved in the last chapter of Derailed. After reading many of their books, my expectations are very high, and this book definitely exceeded them. Highly recommend this book, but be sure to read Grounded first.

This book was so fun to read! The story of 'Derailed' was life and love affirming, and it dealt with a multitude of serious topics in a way that was neither overly peachy nor unduly heavy.

This is my first book by Dave and Neta. My sister read and reviewed book one in the Windy City Neighbor's series, which focused on a young Christian singer. She loved Grace Meredith's story so much that I knew I needed to try book two.. and when I found out that the protagonist in this volume was a Chicago detective, I dove right in. And I'm reviewing this installment in the series. ;)

That was my favorite part of this story, the cop/mystery element. I really enjoy a good detective story, and although Harry Bentley was retired at the start of this book, and he thought police work was behind him, he didn't stay retired for long! Soon he was back in the thick of it, with a trusty K-9 named Corky by his side, a badge on his belt, and a SIG on his hip.... and I was there with him.

As I was reading, I began to feel that Harry Bentley was familiar. And then I realized who he reminded me of!
Remember the great Neal Washington, Chicago detective on Hill Street Blues in the 80's?

Harry reminds me so much of Neal, except about 15 years down the road and with a family. He even uses Neal's favorite expression, copacetic, which means everything is alright, and in good working order.

The first time Harry said it I felt like I was right back on Hill Street with the undercovers and the blues.
{I really enjoy that show, and I can recommend the first three seasons with a few select edits here and there. After that, I think it changed.}

So you better believe I enjoyed this book!

If you remember Neal, you probably remember his partner, J.
