Dave & Neta Jackson
Pound Foolish gives readers a chance to catch up with some of their favorite Windy City Neighbors. In this book, we get to spend some time getting to know the Singer family. Greg Singer has a well paying job coordinating boat shows for a major company; the job pays well but puts strain on his marriage. When he is suddenly laid, Greg is faced with having to find a new job in a bad economy. When it seems he has no hope of finding decent emplyment, he comes across a couple of opportunities that make him think he’s finally hit the big one. Unfortunately, these opportunities end up being money wasters rather than money makers. When he finally hits rock bottom he wonders if he’ll even be able to earn his family’s trust again.
I enjoyed getting to catch up with the characters from the Windy City again. I love that Dave and Neta Jackson are not afraid to approach taboo topics in their books, including gambling and emotional affairs, it makes their characters very easy to relate to. Once again, the Jackson’s have written a book that lets the reader feel as if they are fly on the wall in the house of a family facing struggles much like their own. I can’t wait to see which characters I get to “hang out” with next. 🙂
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
