New Release ~ 4 Stars for Dr. Strange Beard by Penny Reid!


Dr. Strange Beard, an all-new standalone in the bestselling, romantic comedy Winston Brothers Series by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Penny Reid, is LIVE!


Hunches, horse races, and heartbreak

Ten years after Simone Payton broke his heart, all Roscoe Winston wants is a doughnut. He’d also like to forget her entirely, but that’s never going to happen. Roscoe Winston remembers everything—every look, every word, every single unrequited second—and the last thing he needs is another memory of Simone.

Unfortunately, after one chance encounter, Simone keeps popping up everywhere he happens to be . . .

Ten years after Roscoe Winston dropped out of her life, all Simone Payton wants is to exploit him. She’d also like some answers from her former best friend about why he ghosted her, but if she never gets those answers, that’s a-okay. Simone let go of the past a long time ago. Seriously, she has. She totally, totally has. She is definitely not still thinking about Roscoe. Nope. She’s more than happy to forget he exists.

But first, she needs just one teeny-tiny favor . . .

Dr. Strange Beard is a full-length romantic comedy novel, can be read as a stand-alone, and is the fifth book in the USA TODAY bestselling Winston Brothers series.

Quesarasera Book Blog Review

4 Stars!

This series never ceases to make me smile! I love Penny Reid’s smart, sassy writing, amazing characters and quirky stories! Dr. Strange Beard, featuring the poor, tortured soul of Roscoe Winston is a fun, romantic read as only Penny Reid can write!

This is a second chance romance between Roscoe Winston and Simone Payton, the girl he has pined for for years. The same girl who broke his heart into tiny pieces. Now she’s back, but she’s got secrets and ulterior motives. The plot itself is clever. It goes beyond the same old second chance romance trope, adding in a bit of a twist. But, most important of all, Reid’s writing makes this a smart, romantic comedy that will have you swooning, sighing and laughing out loud!

New Release ~ Scenes from the Hallway by Penny Reid!

From the USA TODAY Bestselling romantic comedy series, ‘Scenes from the Hallway,’ Knitting in the City #6.5

You know who I am.

I swear too much, I crack too many jokes, and I got a thing for Kat Tanner; a messy thing, a distracting thing, a getting-in-the-way-of-everything thing; a thing that makes being in the same room with the woman torture. Sometimes it’s the good kind. Mostly, it’s not.

What you don’t know is how it all started. You don’t know how we met, you might not know what happened in Vegas (or the morning after), and you definitely don’t know what happened after that.

You want to know the story before the story? Well . . . here you go.

But be careful what you ask for. As I’ve discovered the hard way, you might not like it.

‘Scenes from the Hallway’ is a companion short prequel/short story (11k words) for the upcoming book, ‘Marriage of Inconvenience,’ and includes the first 3 chapters of the soon to be released novel! (‘Marriage of Inconvenience’ releases March 6, 2018.)

WARNING This short story contains a lot of cussing. Do not download or read if you dislike curse words in novels. WARNING

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.

My Review:

5/5 Stars!!

Spoiler Free Review

I am desperately in love with this book and it’s odd, but charming and lovable hero, Cletus. No joke. His name is Cletus. Do NOT let the name Cletus fool you. He is so much more than his name. Gah! I finished this days ago and I am still thinking about it. 🙂

So, we have poor Jennifer, who is known around town as the Banana Cake Queen, and Cletus Winston, the oddest and most closed off of the Winston brothers. Jennifer is 22 years old and living under the thumb of her very odd and ultra-controlling parents who make the girl feel small. Cletus is odd, but extremely smart and knows much more about what is going on in town and who is doing what than he lets on. When Jennifer inadvertently catches Cletus doing something shocking, instead of hiding away, she gets and idea and she confronts him. The story unfolds from there and it is so, so good!

I loved this! The book is well-written and easy to read, but has so many twists and turns. The character development is so complete its almost unbelievable. It was fun experiencing Jennifer’s transformation from shy flower to a girl who can hold her own. Cletus looks like a crazy man, but he is calculating and smart, but quite rigid. He plans everything in advance and only does things that will benefit him. Except, he really has nothing to gain from Jennifer, until he realizes what he wants from her is, well, her. These two are fun and reading their relationship as it develops was a lot of fun, frustrating at time and truly satisfying.

I had only read one other Penny Reid book and I liked it, but now, I am a fan for life. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!



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.
