Totally Folked

Well, I have fallen in love with another man from Penny Reid’s Green Valley and I did not expect it to be Jackson James - small town deputy sheriff whose previous appearances in the Winston Brothers and Solving for Pie series did not leave me feeling all that bubbly. In fact, I thought of him as k ...

Upsy Daisy

Daisy Payton and Trevor Boone are two of the most likeable characters I have come across in a long time and their HEA is a sweet yet realistic coming-of-age story. Set in 1975 at Fisk University - an historically Black university in Nashville, Tennessee - Upsy Daisy tells the origin story of two bel ...

Beard Necessities

It’s hard to be objective when your heart’s involved, and Penny Reid definitely got my heart involved with her Winston Brothers series (not to mention my feet, which occasionally danced me across my bedroom floor when she wrote something so wonderful that I just had to get up and wriggle with al ...

Beard with Me

Like all fans of the Winston Brothers series by Penny Reid, I’ve been awaiting the release of Beard With Me (the origin story of the series) with equal parts excitement and trepidation. I knew this would be a sad story, and part of me really did not want to read it - a big part of me. But I needed ...

Truth or Beard

My apologies to everyone who recommended this series to me and was rewarded with ‘that doesn’t sound like my cup of tea.' You were right and I was wrong. Deliciously, wonderfully wrong! Truth or Beard is the first book in Penny Reid’s Winston Brothers series about six handsome, bearded brot ...

Dr. Strange Beard

Penny Reid is one of those authors with such a distinct style that you know immediately you are reading one of her books. No one has the same cadence or character voices that Ms. Reid does and it makes it such a delight to fall back into her stories. Dr. Strange Beard is a friends-to-lovers tale tha ...

On Love's Gentle Shore

It’s always a pleasure to find a new-to-me author to enjoy, and Liz Johnson is one of those I discovered in 2017. Her novel On Love’s Gentle Shore won me over with its perfect balance of believable characters, faith-filled themes, wonderful setting, and emotionally deep romance. This is the thir ...

Rising Star

Country music tells stories from a real-world viewpoint where love and loss can go hand in hand. Being a fan of the genre, I hoped Rising Star would use its Music City setting to showcase a romance worthy of a Country ballad. Unfortunately the story is more like Pop music; enjoyable but with little ...
