RECESSION! How'd you make it through? Or have you?
When Greg Singer's company folded, he recalled the words of his pastor, who claimed the Chinese word for "crisis" was composed of two characters meaning danger and opportunity. Opportunity! That sounded good to Greg, especially as the preacher continued to tell his congregation God wanted to bless them with unprecedented prosperity: "It will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over!"
But when Greg tried to get his neighbor, Harry Bentley, to take part in his new money-making venture, Harry said, “Well, I hope it works out for you. But to be honest, if I were going after that, I’d be ‘penny wise and pound foolish’.” Greg tried to assure Harry he wasn't going after the small stuff, but Harry wasn't interested.
What did Harry possibly mean, "pound foolish"?
Greg's wife, Nicole, finds herself drawn to the handsome and "stable" attorney living in the McMansion at the north end of Beecham Street as the stress from their financial situation pushes their marriage to the brink in this fourth book in the Windy City Neighbors series. You'll be amazed at the dramatic conclusion of this novel that parallels Penny Wise, book three of the series.
