From the NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, & USA TODAY bestselling series

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 book #1 in the Solving for Pie: Cletus and Jenn Mysteries series and book #3 in the Winston Brothers series. Each book is a standalone, full length (110k words), contemporary romantic comedy novel, and follows the romantic exploits and adventures of one of the six Winston Brothers.

"Penny's people have depth, they have character and integrity, and they don't make the same mistakes twice. They aren't looking for love when they stumble over it, and their discoveries of each other let us invest in their relationships as they build - slowly, and in real time, with all the nonsense real people bring to the table. But the best part of Penny's people is that they fall for each other with the kind of lovely, slow-burn intensity that makes for the best kind of romance - the kind that lives beyond the pages in the hearts and minds and hopes and dreams of its readers."

-Samantha Young, New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

"This book is bone achingly sweet, and had me laughing out loud in places in true Penny Reid form."

-Heroes and Heartbreakers

"Penny Reid's Beard Science is awkwardly and wonderfully odd, and no carefully selected combination of adjectives can adequately communicate the mind-bending deliciousness of this thoroughly enjoyable book." -All About Romance
