Pound Foolish: A Blog Tour and Review
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 Foolish explores 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.

Oh Dave and Neta Jackson have been favorite authors of mine for a long time now, so I was very excited to review their most recent book, Pound Foolish. IT is the fourth book in the Windy City Neighbors series, and a fantastic read.There is always a lesson within each of the books that these wonderful authors writes, and this one is no exception. Within reading Pound Foolish you will discover that God will use each of us, with all our gifts and flaws included, to do His works, sometimes taking us out of our comfort zones but always to do good. In this case, it was to read neighbors around the characters. All the characters were so real, and I found myself relating to many of them, in the season of life that I am at. The story flowed very nicely too, drawing me in right away and keeping my attention throughout. I absolutely loved the characters of Greg and Nicole, and as I read the book, I felt like I was in the room with the characters experiencing all that they did.
The final book of the Windy City Series, titled Snowmageddon, is to be released in May 2015 and I am really excited to see how the series concluded and find out what is next for these prolific authors.
A really great read that I highly recommend and give a huge thumbs up too!
