Beard in Mind | Penny Reid
30 posts | 33 read | 16 to read
All is fair in love and auto maintenance. Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually. Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyones favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winstons charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket. Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever. She mumbles to herself, but wont respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She wont shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words. Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life. The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandoras box of complexityexquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexityand Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.

Loved this book - so funny and sweet. I thought I liked Cletus the best, but Beau ranks up there 😀 #romance #romantsy

There are, I think, 5 Beard brothers books out that somewhat follow the knitting club books. They share several characters. They are cute romantic, quick reads. I‘m waiting for the next book to release in the series...at least I hope there is another book because there is one more bearded brother and I‘m anxious to hear his story. The knitting club books are good too!

#Audiobook #Review: Beard in Mind by Penny Reid. This series always makes me nostalgic for home, and I loved the depth of our main characters - Beau and Shelly.⠀

What a great read.
I seriously loved that both Shelley and Beau had problems, were snarky, and ran from their problems as much as I loved reading about them falling for each other.

Also I think I like making image boards vs posting the book cover...

I thought I needed fluffy romance but this book was surprising. It‘s cliche, but I literally did laugh and I did cry! The hero is still grieving the death of his mother and the long separation from his twin. The heroine has a complex diagnosis to overcome. What I like about Reid is her stories aren‘t formulaic. Just when I think I know what‘s going to happen, she pulls a switcheroo. She zags when I‘m sure there‘s a zig in the wings. So much fun!

Wow! Honestly, I never thought this series could get any better but it did. Every time I pick up a book by Penny Reid I find a piece of me in it. It doesn't have to be a main character, but something rings so true. In this book it was a lot about both MCs that "was me". Penny's note at the end brought me to tears. So true in so many ways.

SandyW I love when that happens. My husband thinks I'm crazy, but I love nothing more than to sit with an entire (well-written) series and be with a character for a month or so. 2y

#MashUp - which I try to keep spoiler free.

The heroine in this book is quite #vulnerable. But with the hero, she can #overcome her vulnerability because she would really like to get to know him and his beard and his #🌽.

Good morning Littens!

I'm doing some hand exercise while listening to my #audiobook. I have muscle atrophy in both hands and need to work on rebuilding. I never thought that a bit of finger shifting could cause sore muscles. 😶

Kalalalatja 👏👏👏 2y
RadicalReader @julesG are you referring to typing? 2y
julesG @RadicalReader No, the exercise I have to do at home, several times a day, is laying my hands flat onto a surface then spreading my fingers one at a time to the right, then back to the left. Since my muscles need rebuilding, the repetition of these "tiny" movements causes sore muscles. But it also means I'm regaining strength in my hands. 2y

RachelO Glad you're getting some strength back in your hands. It sounds like your wonderful knitting could be quite tiring though, or does that help? 2y
julesG @RachelO Knitting helps with a wrist bone problem I have. It's tiring for my fingers, yes, but I take Litsy breaks often. 😉 2y
RachelO @julesG As long as you have Litsy breaks... 🤗 2y
cathysaid I'm a knitter and have noticed this year that I'm getting arthritis in my fingers. Blue Emu has done wonders. Someone told my husband to try it for his knees and it worked, so I tried it on my hands a couple of weeks ago. It works! And it's not stinky 😷. Maybe it would help with soreness after your exercises. (edited) 2y
julesG @cathysaid Thanks for the tip. I'm willing to give it a try. 2y

I love this series and this story didn‘t disappoint.

Shelley is OCD and struggles with touching people. Beau has always been know as the easy going twin either of Duane.

I loved these two together. Beau wanted to be the one to fix Shelly but with help from her therapist they both learn that she will never be fixed but Beau can help by being there for her. I loved how he understood that she wasn‘t broken.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A talented metal sculptor/car mechanic, Shelly is hiding herself away because of OCD. After starting off on the wrong foot, Beau Winston is drawn to the brutally honest, socially-challenged beauty. Both try to break from their old patterns & cope with new changes in Reid‘s latest charming installment of the small-town Tennessee Winston brothers series (set concurrently with Beard Science). Old favorites Quinn & Janie make an appearance #romantsy

A heroine dealing with OCD. Reid (in my non expert opinion) is doing an amazing job conveying what it involves for the person coping with it and for those around them. #romantsy

My weekend at a glance... I am so glad I randomly downloaded a Penny Reid book after seeing a Litsy post because she is amazing! Her guys have me really bumming about the fact that my hubby can't grow a beard to save his life... think I could trade him for Cletus or Jethro?! #romantsy

Leelee08 😍😍😍 2y
CoffeeK8 You are in for such a treat! All of her books are amazing! 😍 2y

Started this last night, ignoring all of my library books, as a reward for surviving the week. This book is one of my favorites in the series, if not my favorite. Love Penny Reid. #romantsy

Penny Reid's best characters (for me) are quirky and fall somewhere on the autism scale. Shelly is grappling with a mental illness (OCD) on top of a highly idiosyncratic way of thinking. One thing I loved about this book was its brutal realism. There were a few odd aspects--why was she an artist? Wasn't it enough to be a gifted mechanic? His romantic history. Her confession. I'll leave it there but basically, very enjoyable. #romantsy #romance

Bloomingjen This looks so interesting. I have never heard of it. I am so glad to learn it exists. 2y

Oh! So! Good! I think one is my favorite so far, really got me in all the feels! I always get a good giggle from her books but Reid had me tearing up quite a bit this time too. I loved Shelley and Beau and how they fought for each other without losing themselves. I like how Reid faces these tough issues head on without sensationalizing or making light of them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finally, release day!!! Penny is my absolute favorite and I've been missing those Winston boys! So hard to wait until I got home to start this book but it deserves my undivided attention. And sleep? Who needs it! Can't wait to read Beau and Shelly's story. #pennyreid #winstonbrothers #BeardinMind

Every book I think "no way could this be better then the last one" and it's always better! Beau & Shelly's story was awesome, heartfelt and quirky, as except. But, it was also dealt with some heavy mental health and family issues in a positive and realistic way. I ? this series and everything this author writes. #romantsy.

EloisaJames I forgot to get this--thanks!! 2y
DGRachel So much yes to this! Penny made me nervous with her apology saying "I'll totally understand if you hate it". I should know better than to listen to her. ? 2y
CoffeeK8 @DGRachel totally... I love that she's willing to take risks like this! 2y

Penny Reid constantly surprises the reader with the depth of her characters and her stories. Shelly and Beau are no exceptions. For me they are as real as you or me. Beard in Mind is one book that you definitely should read.

Penny Reid does it again. Great characters, well written, with humor, awkwardness, and tears - I loved Beau and Shelly's story. And now my Reid-athon is officially over until she releases her next book, whenever that may be. *sigh* I feel a little lost.

Eyelit Yay!! You can ignore my other comment 😆. I'm really looking forward to this one. 2y
DGRachel @Eyelit It's so good. You'll love it! 😍 2y
Eyelit I bet I will! Sad thing is I zip through her books so quickly and I know we won't get another for a while. Selfish me wants her to write faster! 2y

I NEED to get work-work done today. I have a long list of stuff that MUST be done before I walk in the door tomorrow. It's 5:47 pm and I have done NONE OF IT. Instead, I bought the new Penny Reid on iBooks because you can't get it on Kindle until 8/1, but you can get it early on iBooks, and I've been reading all day. Guess who won't be sleeping tonight, because she'll be up working. #adultingishard #imakebadchoices #ihatemyself

chapter_fifty2017 Poor you 😔 just think tomorrow night you will catch up on some zzz😴 it was all worth it !! 2y
Bookcation74 I would make the same choices if that makes you feel any better! And thanks for he iBook tip! 2y
DGRachel @Bookcation74 Thanks and you're welcome. I'm a member of a closed Facebook fan group for Penny Reid and saw people talking about getting the book yesterday. Apparently, it's available on iBooks, Kobo, and Nook until midnight 8/1, when it transfers to Kindle/Kindle Unlimited. Once Amazon takes over the rights for KU, it gets pulled from the other platforms. I had no idea KU worked like that, but I'm glad to get the book early. 2y
