Pound Foolish by Dave and Neta Jackson Review

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 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.

Purchase a copy:

Cassandra's Review-  The book in my opinion could not be read as a standalone.  As a book four I highly recommend reading books 1-3 first.  I am not stating that you could not somehow catch up, but it would not be as great if you do not read them all and in order at that. The characters are both train wrecks trying to help each other all through the series so far and it would seem touch and go on the choices and emotions they present.   In the end I am not too excited to read another book in this series. 

About the authors: Dave and Neta Jackson are award-winning authors living in the Chicago area where their parallel novels from the Yada Yada House of Hope and Harry Bentley series are set. As a husband/wife writing team, Dave and Neta Jackson are enthusiastic about books, kids, walking with God, gospel music, and each other! Together they are the authors or coauthors of over 100 books.

Cassandra's Review-  I really enjoy this set.  It is hard for me to find good spices in my area and this is perfect for trying all sorts of new dishes.  The book that comes has step by step guides that will make cooking your new dish so easy.  Some of my spices were open before I had a chance to open them with tiny slits in the package, I am sure it probably happen during shipment.  However I would not be so sure of the freshness if they are not sealed completely had I not known prior that it was just shipped.  If you do buy this just make sure when you first pull the spices out of the tin that you have gloves on or something if you do not like spices on your hands and also a  bowl or plate ready to catch the spices before they fall all over the place and you lose them, I am not saying that  your packets will be sliced open, but just in case.  The spices have great flavor and scent.

Cassandra's Review - I am thrilled to own this sharpener.  It is awesome.  Its like being back in school with a twist.  My pencils come out sharp every time.  As a homeschool teacher this is so fun for the older kids to use as well.  It brings me to a nostalgic moment of sitting at the old fashion loud grinding sharpener and using it until I had a nub for a pencil.  An all around great gift for the upcoming holidays!
