Dave and Neta Jackson
If you’re unfamiliar with Dave and Neta Jackson, you’ve been missing out on some great novels. Dave and Neta are the husband and wife team behind a group of Christian fiction series set in and around the city of Chicago. While each series focuses on one core group of characters, you’ll see these characters pop up in other series – all the stories are interrelated. (Read more about that here.) I’m a sucker for books and series that interrelated, so I jumped at the chance to be able to read and review their latest work, Penny Wise. It was really awesome to run into characters I’d previously “met” in series such as the Yada Yada Prayer group and House of Hope. This was the first book I’ve read in the Windy City series, but I didn’t feel like I’d missed out on anything by picking it up part way through.
Penny Wise focuses on the Jasper family as they navigate the busyness and struggles of life. Just when Michelle thinks she finally has it under control, life throws her a few curve balls that have her seriously rethinking her future. When she thinks her life is just too much to handle, God shows his faithfulness on penny at a time.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to catch up with some of my favorite characters from the Windy City. Dave and Neta write some fun stories with characters who are completely relatable and go through trials that many of us face on a day to day basis. Penny Wise was another great story to read and I look forward to seeing what’s next.
