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.
Cletus is probably the most complex out of the whole Winston Clan. He is the quite one but the most sneaky of them all. Jenn said it best "Most dangerous man east of Tennessee". With his way of getting information on everyone in his town he is one smart SOB but, he doesn't boast about it.
Jenn is known in town and the " Banana Cake Queen". Her mother built her brand and has kept her under her control. She has been kept sheltered that now all Been wants is to break free and be her own person not the persona her mother created. She knows what she wants and knows the right person to help her with that.
I love Cletus I do but he was so confused he would say that something was for him but then contradicted himself. Jenn annoyed me at times as well with her situation letting everyone around her do as they pleased with her parents approval of course. At first this book started a bit slow for me. Once it picked up I couldn't put it down. These to characters I think was the most difficult people I have ever read about scratch that second hard headed people to read about. Overall I enjoyed this book as always Cletus has me laughing up a storm once he started. Can't wait for the other book to follow keep working your magic Penny 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.
