Beauty and the Mustache (Knitting in the City, #4) by Penny Reid REVIEW

There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston:

1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.

Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous— local Game Warden, reclusive mountain man, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions— or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands— to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

This is a full-length novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the fourth book in the ‘Knitting in the City’ series.

Review

★★★★4 Stars★★★★


After eight years, Ashley travels home to Tennessee to find out why her mother is in hospital, and although they speak to each other daily and meet up annually, she hasn’t had anything to do with her 6 bearded brothers since she left home to go to college.

She then meets Drew, who she is perplexed to find out is a very close friend of the family, her brothers boss, and thinks of her mother as his own. Who is this bearded sexy Viking?

This was a dream to read, I loved everything about the brothers and Ashley and how they rediscovered each other as a family. Drew was a brooding poet, I loved him. He was so vunerable but yet Ashley was so involved with her mothers worries that she didn’t see it. Ashley was a great heroine, I had no complaints at all.

As usual, I’m all arse about tit so I will now go to the beginning of this series and read the first 3 books.

I seriously can’t wait for the Winston Brothers series, that is going to be fantastic.

About the Author

Penny Reid

Penny Reid has difficulty writing about herself in the third person. She finds it strange and unsettling. Therefore, Penny will now switch to the first person.

I’m originally from California but now live in the Southeast US with my family after going to college in the area. I work full time at a large University in the field of biomedical research (e.g. clinical research studies conducted under the auspices of the FDA). I work a lot. I also love to knit and crochet; sew bags, blankets, and clothes; carve lino blocks for fabric printing; make homemade soap, jam, marmalade; and- most recently- I’m learning to garden.

I don’t like to sit still unless I’m writing, reading, or knitting and I usually only knit in my knitting group… or at red lights while stuck in traffic. I only read on planes (where I’m trapped). Luckily, I travel a lot for work.

The voices in my head (characters) became so loud over the summer of 2012- specifically, Janie Morris- that I was forced to write Neanderthal Seeks Human, my first attempt at a full length novel. It took me 7 months while working full time, crafting, and raising my people-children (boy-7, girl-5).

If I could have any job in the world it would be my job because I feel like what I do makes a tangible difference in the lives of every living person. If I could have any life in the world it would be my life. Happiness is the seed of good fortune and success. Do what it takes to be happy and be a source of happiness for others.

ABOUT PENNY:
Penny Reid is a part time author of romantic fiction. When she’s not immersed in penning smart romances she works in the biotech industry as a researcher. She’s also a full time mom to two diminutive adults (boy-8 and girl-5), wife, daughter, knitter, crocheter, sewer, general crafter, and thought ninja.
