Publisher Description

He needs to get her out of his system. Just once…

Hank Weller doesn’t help people. He leaves that do-gooder nonsense to his best friend, Beau Winston. Hank does what he wants, when he wants, with whomever he wants—and Hank does not want to hire Charlotte Mitchell to be an exotic dancer at his club, The Pink Pony. Sure, he can’t help noticing the dips and curves of her, how shrewd, smart, and funny she is, the fire in her hazel eyes. He’s always noticed. She’d probably draw a crowd and entice the regulars. But after Charlotte’s messy, public divorce made Hank’s club out to be the culprit—and made her the single mother of four kids—he doesn’t need or want any additional bad press courtesy of Charlotte Mitchell. Or the distraction. Unfortunately for him, the town’s prettiest charity case doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of the words nope, no, and never.

Charlotte Mitchell doesn’t much like Hank Weller. Once upon a time, she used to. Years ago, she liked him a whole heckofalot despite other folks in town labeling him as “eccentric” and “nonconformist,” which were polite southern alternatives to “filthy rich” and “self-centered douchebag.” Her opinion of him changed dramatically after he volunteered to be her date to junior prom and then promptly stood her up. They haven’t so much as acknowledged each other in over a decade. But a sudden family emergency means Charlotte needs access to Hank’s club ASAP.  Unfortunately for her, the narcissistic fancy-pants doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of the words help, generosity, and compassion.

But he’s about to find himself schooled. Charlotte is going to teach Hank a lesson once and for all about basic human decency, whether he likes it or not.

Spoiler alert. . . he likes it. 😉

4.25-entertaining, engaging, captivating

4.25 stars-FOLK AROUND AND FIND OUT is the second instalment in Penny Reid’s contemporary, adult GOOD FOLK: MODERN FOLKTALES erotic, romance series-a spin off from the author’s WINSTON BROTHERS and KNITTING IN THE CITY series. This is exotic dance club owner Hank Weller, and divorcee/single mother/ teacher’s assistant Charlotte Mitchell’s story line. FOLK AROUND AND FIND OUT can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Some of the characters from the original series cross over for back story and familiarity.

Told from dual first person perspectives (Charlotte and Hank) FOLK AROUND AND FIND OUT follows the building but tempestuous relationship between exotic dance club owner Hank Weller, and divorcee/single mother/ teacher’s assistant Charlotte Mitchell. Charlotte Mitchell need information, and applying to work at The Pink Pony is the perfect outlet for Charlotte’s needs but Charlotte, whose husband left her for a stripper he met at The Pink Pony, has no idea as to what she may be forced to do. Club owner Hank Weller knows only too well that Charlotte’s reputation will be destroyed so he offers her a position as bookkeeper, a position that forces Charlotte into Hank’s orbit. Hank and Charlotte’s reputations is acrimonious at best. Hank believes Charlotte sits in judgement of who he is, and the business he runs but Charlotte’s reasons for disliking Hank stem back years, years in which Hank no longer remembers what happened or why. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Hank and Charlotte, and the potential fall-out when Charlotte’s past returns, demanding everything and more.

Charlotte Mitchell is a single mother of four children under the age of seven, and her life is quickly spiralling out of control. Desperate for information, Charlotte is willing to ‘dance’ at The Pink Pony but getting up close and personal with her high school nemesis isn’t high on the list of Charlotte’s things to do. Hank Weller has no idea why Charlotte Mitchell despises the ground upon which he walks but believes she sits in judgement of his particular line of work. Suspecting Charlotte is not revealing the truth about the who, how and why, Hank offers Charlotte a job, placing our heroine in the direct link of fire.

The relationship between Charlotte and Hank is an enemies to frenemies to lovers in which Hank realizes Charlotte is the woman that calls to his heart but Hank’s lack of a successful relationship has him questioning his life choices going forward including falling for a woman, and her ready made family. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and seductive but I dislike the use of a certain four-letter word in my romance story lines.

There is a large ensemble cast of colorful and familiar secondary and supporting characters including Jackson and Raquel (Totally Folked 1), Beau and Shelly Winston , Jethro and Sienna Winston (Grin and Beard It 2), Cletus and Jenn Winston (Beard Science 3) as well as Charlotte’s four children, her mother, and exotic dancer turned bookkeeper Hannah.

FOLK AROUND AND FIND OUT is a story of discrimination, judgement, preconceived notions, acceptance and love. The fast paced premise is entertaining, engaging and captivating; the romance is passionate and provocative; the characters are determined and energetic. The epilogue fast forwards the story line fifteen to eighteen years…
