Jackson's Neighborhood

Length: 213 pages3 hours


Natalie and Jackson Bennett are delighted with their simple, quiet holiday plans. Their isolated haven amongst a group of eccentric neighbors, however, is about to become a chaotic battleground filled with five disorderly young strangers and one inept offspring.

When daughter Dru announces that a new boyfriend, with whom she now lives, has planned a Christmas hunting trip with his oldest son, the Bennetts welcome her home. Dru unexpectedly acquires his other children, from two ex-wives, for a week. A series of mishaps and crises -- including a lost child and an accident in a beloved 1966 Corvette -- threatens Jackson’s neighborhood, his home, and his sanity. Patience is a painful thing, Jackson decrees, as five wily and precocious kids romp through the Bennetts’ lives. Covert tactics -- and cash -- prevail as each child falls prey to Jackson’s off-the-wall sensibilities.

Jackson’s Neighborhood is a delightful and wacky holiday tale -- filled with the joys of not-so-innocent children, a little romance, and a few tugs of the heartstrings along the way.
