Blog Tour & Review - Beard Science by Penny Reid


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.



Oh Cletus you oddball, banjo-playin', sausage makin', blueberry pancake eatin', schemin', blackmailer you. We've all been dying for this book and Penny Reid did not disappoint. Cletus made me squee through every page. He's such an original and refreshing character. I like his quirkiness, he had so many funny moments. But he's also fiercely loyal to his family and that made him especially endearing.

What surprised me the most was how much I loved Jennifer. In previous books she seemed kind of dull but she was a people watcher. That's what happens when you're mostly ignored all your life but she was sharp as a tack and boy did she have Cletus's number. I loved the way she got one over on him and made him notice her.

It was fun seeing Cletus rattled. He was insistent that they didn't suit, that they were just friends and he wanted to help Jenn make her life her own. It should come as no surprise she hates being the banana cake queen. But when Cletus stops fighting it...*sighs* Let's just say he's an amazing boyfriend.

Reid also did a great job setting up Beau's book. I'm looking forward to it.

Best book of the year. Amazing job. Bravo, Ms. Reid!

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.
