This Chick Read: Beard Science (Winston Brothers #3) by Penny Reid

Why did I wait so long to read this novel??!!  I’ve owned it since December and well, I guess I was worried about Cletus. If you are a fan of these novels, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Cletus makes a great quirky side character, and he was my favorite. How would that quirky weirdness translate into a romance hero? I’ll admit, when the novel first started and he declared that he and a different woman would suit, I had to read the synopsis again.  Wasn’t he supposed to be with Jennifer, the Banana Cake Queen? Yep, that other woman was just a red herring.  When the point of view switched to Jennifer, and I realized her scheme to get Cletus’s help, I knew he had no chance. Jennifer was going to steal his heart.

Cletus was just as quirky as he was in the first two novels, but the insight into his character showed that the quirkiness was actually a shield that he put up to protect himself. Jennifer, a rather odd duck herself, snuck under his defenses and pretty soon he was determined to win her for his own, forgetting Shelly, the woman he’d thought suited him at the beginning of the novel. Good thing, because Shelly is meant for his brother Beau.

Jennifer was a heroine you really wanted to root for. Treated horribly by her family and treated as a joke by the town you couldn’t wait to watch her grow into herself. I loved that she was just as unique and quirky as Cletus. They seem to be a perfect match.

Each time I read a Winston Brothers novel I worry about it not being able to live up to my enjoyment of the novel before, but once again, I didn’t need to worry. Cletus and Jennifer’s story, while different than the first two, was just as great. This family from Tennessee is charming, unusual and all are perfect gentlemen with their ladies. Their courtships are all unique and Penny Reid does a great job of maintaining the originality of the storyline yet catching the correct tone of a Tennessee southern vibe.

This Chick Read: Grin and Beard It (Winston Brothers #2) by Penny Reid

I fell in love with the Winston brothers while reading Truth or Beard, the first book in this series. These boys have southern charm, southern names, and an aw shucks intelligence that reels you in. Oh and they all have beards. Hence the clever titles of their books. Grin and Beard it is the story of Jethro and how he falls for Sienna Diaz, a movie star who he has never seen nor heard of, dropped into his small town to film a movie. Jethro, who is a park ranger by trade, helps Sienna, a damsel in distress, lost on the way to her film shoot.

This Chick Read: Truth or Beard (Winston Brothers book 1) by Penny Reid

First- I love this title!  Truth or Beard is an obvious play on words, and the characters do, at one point play truth or dare.  More interestingly, Duane, the male protagonist, has a bushy beard. I can only think of one other romance book I’ve read where the man has a beard, and I loved that book too! Hmmm, something to think about anyway…  Back to the book.
