Pavlina's review: Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid

Tuesday, October 21, 2014
This is a full-length novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the fourth book in the 'Knitting in the City' series. 

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.


 4,5 STARS :D

I finished this book but I'm still thinking about this all over again!It was an emotional read!The writing was so beautiful, the story,the characters ...everything was perfect! I love when I become emotionally with realistic books!The characters were intelligent !I think it's the first book that I did not only love the main characters also the supportive once..Each chapter begins with a quote!This was so clever!!!This story is about family,love,friendship,loss and acceptance.

After eight years of absence from her home Ashley comes back because her mother is sick.She hasn't had anything to do with her six brothers..Her six brothers have finally grown up, and have changed.They are funny,intelligent and determined and Ashley tries to reconnect with them and find what she never had with them! 


While she is back she will meet a friend of them who is so close with the family and he knows a lot about her(but not exactly that she is "she".He has heard about her as an "Ash" so he thought she was a boy).But Ashley doesn't know anything about Drew... The way they meet is hilarious.However, they instantly find each other attractive...

Drew is amazing!!!I think every man who love reading poetry,will make you melt for him!!!He is intelligent,sexy,sensitive and romantic!!Ashley is a likeable character too.She is funny,strong,smart and cute.Also she afraid to allow men in her life so the romance developed slowly!I would say that they relationship was so romantic!!! *sigh*


Omg I don't know why I haven't read a book from Penny Reid before!!!!I loved her writing so much, she is a very gifted author!!I'm glad that I decide to read this book!! I'm so excited to read the Winston Brothers series !!!Duane <3 <3 *sigh* Can't wait for his book!!!!If you are looking for intelligent characters this is what you need!!!
