Publisher Description


Make a deal with the devil and you might get what you want, but will it be what you need? 

Jennifer Sylvester wants one thing, and that one thing is NOT to be Tennessee’s reigning Banana Cake Queen. Ever the perpetual good girl and obedient daughter, Jennifer is buckling under the weight of her social media celebrity, her mother’s ambitions, and her father’s puritanical mandates. Jennifer is officially desperate. 

And desperate times call for Cletus Winston.

Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he’s in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So... what’s a maniacal mastermind to do? 

Likely, the last thing you expect. 

'Beard Science' is the fourth book in the Winston Brothers series, is a full-length romantic comedy novel, and can be read as a standalone.

My fave!

This is my absolute favorite book in the series! I love Cletus so much - he is hilarious and weird and an absolute delight. Jen is also so fantastic and I love how Reid handled the abuse she suffered from her parents. Penny Reid’s novels are always smart and sexy and fun, and there’s so much to chew on in this!

I related to Jennifer’s situation. My life was controlled by overbearing parents and money was squandered. Of course that was now 26yrs ago and I’ve forgiven them and have a wonderful family in which I never did anything like that to my four children. They are my world and deserve the best. Thank you the reminder of overcoming our past to make a better way of life.
I am so impressed of your writing and the way you research on the human psychology with each character. I’ve laughed and cried but most of all cannot put these books down.
Penny Reid you are truly a gift. Thank you!

Hope you liked the book ,
