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 ...

The Bromance Book Club

The Bromance Book Club is great fun - a sweet, easy read spiced with some hilarious scenes. This is the first book in a series featuring a group of Nashville alpha males determined to save their relationships through an outrageous plan - reading romance novels to better understand their wives.

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 ...

Beard in Mind

WARNING: This book contains a main character with severe OCD who self-harms.  If you find this subject matter triggering - even though the author handles it with tact – then this might not be a comfortable read for you.  Proceed with caution. Everyone loves those Winston boys.  And who can b ...

A Note Yet Unsung

I’ve enjoyed several of this author’s books, so I took a break from housework to read a chapter of A Note Yet Unsung. Within the first pages, I decided the housework could wait.  One chapter turned into another. The housework never got done, but the compelling story, vibrant characters, and dee ...

Beard Science

Penny Reid’s Beard Science is awkwardly and wonderfully odd, and no carefully selected combination of adjectives can adequately communicate the mind-bending deliciousness of this thoroughly enjoyable book. The author's creativity beats to its own drum, and she's successfully written something diff ...
