Beard Science

by Penny Reid Winston Brothers #3

Publication Date: October 11, 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Humor, Romance


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.

I have been looking forward to Cletus Winston and his famous sausage for a very...very...long time. And once again Penny Reid pulls it out of the hat with that quirky touch of humour that she is famous for.

A while ago she let us read a snippet from her work in progress and that had me thinking all sorts of wrong things about who would capture the attention of the sneaky sneak that is Cletus. Of all the Winston brothers he is probably the trickiest trick in the book and trust me...he will have you laughing while you read this book.

If you're already a Penny Reid fan then this is the next #mustoneclick for you...if you have yet to meet the delightful awesomeness that is the writing of Penny Reid...then this is a good place to be introduced. 


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.
