Review & Giveaway: Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid

Beauty and the Mustache
Publication Date: August 28, 2014
Genres: ContemporaryHumorRomance


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.
This is a full-length novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the fourth book in the 'Knitting in the City' series.


It's the fourth book in the series Knitting in the City but can be read as standalone: I have not read the other books.
I've chose to read this novel because I love big families, I always wanted to be part of it. Ashley has six brothers and they all have beards. She left her small town in Tennessee right after high school and moved to Chicago. After eight years returns home and discovers that her mother is seriously ill, another thing that upsets her is that the mother's last wishes are entrusted to Drew, the head and friend of a brother. Although she did not take it well is very nice gesture of her mother who wants to avoid her sons to make decisions very painful.   

Drew is a man with a beard, very sexy, romantic, intellectual, writes beautiful poems. In a nutshell adorable. Ashley is an independent woman, sweet but not easy to tame. The brothers are really funny and charming guys. I loved how Ashley discovers relationships with her brothers: their jokes, their daily habits.

It 's a book very funny and romantic, touching and sexy.

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.
