***Release Blitz & Review***
Beard Science by Penny Reid
Winston Brothers #3
Make a deal with the devil and you might get what you want, but will it be what you need?
Jennifer Sylvester wants one thing, and that one thing is NOT to be Tennessee’s reigning Banana Cake Queen. Ever the perpetual good girl and obedient daughter, Jennifer is buckling under the weight of her social media celebrity, her mother’s ambitions, and her father’s puritanical mandates. Jennifer is officially desperate.
And desperate times call for Cletus Winston.
Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he’s in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So… what’s a maniacal mastermind to do?
Likely, the last thing you expect.
‘Beard Science’ is the third book in the Winston Brothers series, is a full-length romantic comedy novel, and can be read as a standalone.
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!!
I’ve been patiently waiting for Cletus’s book since his first appearance in Ashley story.
Cletus is one of the most bizarre and genius characters I’ve ever read and he jumps straight into my top ten favourite leading men of all time.
He’s so freaking strange and unique and alpha in a mercurial way. He’s badass but he hides it behind a facade of hillbilly. In short he’s the reason Penny Reid’s books are so bloody great.
This author writes about the odd balls, the weirdo’s and the strange. I’m odd, I know a lot of odd people and I love that this is a love story about the more eccentric souls in the world.
For Jenn this book is a real journey of discovery, but honestly I even adored her when she was silently watching. Her inner strength and confidence grew as the story progressed and by the end I wanted her as my new BFF.
This book is funny but there were also moments that were deep and insightful. Hell there were a couple of quotes that resonated so deeply I welled up.
All in all this is a witty, interesting love story that captivated my attention from start to finish. It’s my absolute favourite book of this series so far.
5 glorious stars
About Penny Reid
SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).
By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
