Folk Around and Find Out

I’m a long time fan of Penny Reid’s books, in particular her Knitting in the City series, which led to her Winston Brothers series, which has now led to her Good Folk: Modern Folktales series. This latest offering brings to the forefront some of the secondary characters met through the Winstons. ...

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 ...

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

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 ...
