Publisher's Summary

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 heard as a standalone.

More Than 5 Quirky, Swoony Stars!!

Love! Love! Love! I didn't think i could love one of these books more than Beauty and The Mustache, but Cletus in all his quirky glory completely stole my heart.

“Stay away from the normals, the small-minded people who fill their brains with small-minded pursuits, who blend in and keep up with the Joneses. Those people will tear you down and make you boring. Instead, surround yourself with the weirds. With the misfits, oddballs, and outcasts. Because the normals, bless their hearts, have no idea how to have fun.”

And Jennifer is amazing! Such a strong heroine who doesn't know her own strength and value! I laughed, I swooned and I never wanted the story to end!

“You want to know what you are to me? Fine. You’re my beginning, middle, and end.”
The words hit me square in the chest, through the heart, straight to my soul.

More than 5 Stars!

Buy This Book

If you have ever had the pleasure of reading one of Mrs. Reid's prior novels you would know she has skills. This one, however, stands out. It isn't just some love story between a standard man and woman. It's about people loving themselves and forgoing presumptions.

Written from an interchanging dual perspective, the main characters feel more real. They are brought to life by Joy Nash and Chris Brinkley, who I am convinced should narrate all books that are not currently being performed by Stephen Fry.

In short get this book. It has no faults, inconsistencies, nor does it subscribe to the mold of its genre. It is refreshing, original, and gives hope that we all can change for the better.

Just about perfect

Penny Reid’s books are full of glorious characters that never fit the “norm” and this is a perfect example. There are too many facets of this book worthy of description that I simply don’t know which to highlight. Penny Reid has a way of manipulating the emotions of the reader to make us slowly but surely fall in love with her characters, as they fall in love with each other. This is a fabulous example of romance writing at its best. My only small criticism is that the wonderful pace of the book seems to lag a bit at the end. The last couple of chapters, although enjoyable, do seem a bit like redundant filler. However this does not spoil what is a wonderful, moving and emotional story about two very unusual people.

Reid is one of my favourite writers.

If you like a smart romance, this is perfect. I strongly recommend the whole series as well as Penny Reid's other books. Her stories are intelligent, romantic and relatively realistic! The character development is phenomenal and most of her books are even educational.
The audiobook was fabulous, great voices, great accents. Loved it and listened to it 3 times.

Winston Brothers Bliss!

Any additional comments?

Oh my Cletus! Book 3 of the Winston Brothers series was such a delight to read! Cletus has been a favourite of mine throughout the series so I was super excited to get inside Cletus's head, finally! It's been awhile since i've read about such a special character, Cletus is full of surprises, has the driest funniest wit, quirky anecdotes and is a shrewd mastermind! He is such a complex character and even after reading his book, we don't get all the answers about Cletus, I'm hoping in the following books, more about his particular past will be revealed. I loved Jennifer's character because she took on such a transformation throughout the book.<br/>It's wonderful having all the other Brothers & partners so intertwined in the books, it's what brings a richness and depth to the stories. <br/>I can't boast enough about Penny's writing, it is intelligent, witty & funny, making this series a breath of fresh air for me. Really looking forward to the next book & more of Cletus and his sausage... 😀
