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.
Wow! An amazing read you won’t put down
This book delivered on all levels! I laughed out loud, I cried and I couldn’t put it down. This was an intelligent, artistic and sweet romance and family drama combined. I thoroughly enjoyed this journey with Ashley, Drew and the cast of wacky and wonderful characters. How Penny managed to interweave the complexities of loss, love and romance with wit, humour,poetry and heart wrenching emotion is amazing. I didn’t want this book to end.
