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.


I hadn’t read any of Dave and Neta Jackson’s books until I started the Wendy City Neighbors Series, and the more I read from these two, the more my love grows for their writing. In Pound Foolish they deal with real like characters in real life situations, and at times it is impossible to put the book down, because you wanna see where it is going next. Greg could get on your nerves if you let him, in the really questionable decisions he was making, his marriage wasn’t getting along so good, and he was just, well,  foolish. As I kept reading, I realized how much this couple’s struggles were like some of my own, and I am sure a lot of people can say the same thing. It was interesting to see how God worked in their lives, despite their struggles and wrong decisions. I always enjoy reading books like this because they are so encouraging, and you will sure find Pound Foolish a super encouraging book to read.

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55
