Happy Friday everyone! It's the end of another week and I have another great read for you.
Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid was a great, fun read! I fell in love with this unique book. You think backwoods Tennessee that you will get the stereotypical characters but that is not the case. This story was compelling, artful, and a bit crazy hilarity that keep me yearning for more. Even though it is part of another series, Knitting in the City, I didn't feel lost at all with the other characters, just intrigued to read the other books now. I'm also excited to read more about the Winston Brothers.
This is a full-length novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the fourth book in the 'Knitting in the City' series.
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, 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.
