{{Book Review}} Pound Foolish By Dave & Neta Jackson


About the book: Pound Foolish 
Book Four in the Windy City Neighbors series (Castle Rock Creative, October 2014)

Greg Singer coordinates consumer sports shows for powerboats, four wheelers, snowmobiles, and jet skis---macho toys for outdoor men like himself. But the job puts tremendous stress on his marriage with Nicole, who for the first time notices the handsome lawyer at the end of the block. "Greener pastures?" When the recession hits Greg's industry, he thinks the crisis is merely an opportunity for God to bless him with unmatched prosperity, a promise he hears preached each Sunday, and he steps out in bold faith . . . But is he being "pound foolish"?

The fourth in the Windy City Neighbors series, Pound Foolishexplores the economic upheaval and uncertainties challenging every family. Intersecting with Penny Wise (book three), the Jacksons employ the innovating storytelling technique of "parallel novels." Though each book follows its own drama and story arc, the characters' lives become intertwined and affect one another. Pound Foolish returns us to Beecham Street---a typical American neighborhood . . . where a growing friendship brings new meaning to prosperity.

*My Review*
Pound Foolish is the 4th book in the "Windy City Neighbors" series. The only other book I've read from Dave & Neta was "Penny Wise"(book 3 in the windy city neighbors series). I was really excited when I got the email saying I was going to be reviewing this book. I ejoyed "penny wise", and couldn't wait to read this one. 

The Jackson's are amazing & inspiring authors. In Pound Foolish, we meet the Singer family. A couple who have been married for quite some time & have two children,a boy and a girl. 

Greg Singer, is the breadwinner of the family. His job as an event coordinator for PowerSport. Just when he thinks he is at the top of his game, the economy takes a nose dive and some of the larger companies are deciding to pull their registrations from upcoming events. *uh oh!* Greg believes everything will be okay, but soon learns that his boss is closing the company and he is about to be laid off. His biggest issue is how to tell his wife Nicole.
