Description

This is a full-length novel, 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.

Laughed, Snorted and Cried

I made the mistake of listening to this while I analyzed spreadsheets at work...in a cubicle...with short walls! I have laughed, snorted, cried...it's a wonder I haven't been Baker Acted!!!

Being Southern, I appreciate the genuine respect the narrator gave to the Southern drawl. It can be offensive when one tries to emulate a dialect that has many different strains from which to choose. She was phenomenal!!! And the brothers...dear mercies in heaven...I love those boys!!!

I lost my Daddy 7 months ago, so there were parts that were still raw to my heart; however, the author used deflection of humor at just the right times to keep the story from going too dark. Thank you for this.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story, although a few times I blushed at some of the scenes; as they were unexpected and not my particular preference. But it didn't go overboard so I appreciated that.

Well written and well narrated!!!

A sweet southern romance

My kinda book. I wish the other in the series were on audible. I would listen right away. I loved the brothers and her friends in this story and of course the relationship with her mom. Her brothers and friends made me laugh and her mom made me cry. Nice blend. I am so tired of these books with so called alpha males. I have determined that alpha male equals abusive so no thank you. This was the kind of alpha male I like. Kind thoughtful caring and strong. Their relationship developed naturally and even though I am not much of a poetry person, I loved it in the book. More of knitting in the city please.

Beautiful story and fantastic narration!

This might be my favorite audiobook ever. The narration is spectacular, the Tennessee accent was done really well and when the narrator switched to a male voice, it worked really well. The story itself was really beautiful, a gorgeous love story with a bit of humor and a lot of emotion. This was really a beautiful story and I really enjoyed this audiobook.

Love the story and the performace

This book hits very close to home. I recently had the same experience of a family member having a terminal illness. This book helped me understand that the feelings and guilt a caretaker experiences are normal. I would sometimes say "yes, exactly!" Thank you Penny Reid for helping me heal and understand the process of losing a loved one.

Now for the actual book, Ash and Drew are two of the most loveable book people. The way Drew loves Ashley is breathtaking. It is all encompassing ... complete.

Ashley's relationship with her mother broke my heart. Only because I know the feeling of having it and then not having it. Everyday phone calls just to hear the other persons voice, that is true mother/daughter love.

AND let's not forget the WINSTON BROTHERS (yes, it needs all CAPS) ... I need more of them and soon! They take this book from borderline sad and romantic to laugh out loud funny. Check the schedule!!!

Joy Nash's performance was excellent, the accents were not overly done (I am from Texas and I hate when accents are exaggerated).

This book is a must listen.

Narration annoying

I cannot tell u if i like the book because I cannot stand to listen to the narration. I'm going to get the kindle version of this one and hope the rest of the series doesn't use this narrator. I've loved the others, so odds are good I'll enjoy the story.

Everything was fantastic except..

I wish the narrator would have known the other accents from the previous books; like Janie's lisp, and at the very least she could have done Sandra's accent-- as they both are supposed to have southern drawls. Otherwise everything was fantastic.

Love it! I love everything about it

What did you love best about Beauty and the Mustache?

It's a great story and the characters feel real. It is a romance, but there's enough real life woven in that you can believe it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Drew Runous... He's the obvious choice. He's the mysterious, devastatingly handsome type. What's not to love?

What about Joy Nash’s performance did you like?

The VOICES! Joy Nash does an excellent job of giving each character a different yet believable and not over the top voice. The Southern accents are charming, but not over-done. The narration is spot on.

damn near perfect

I loved everything about this book. Especially the way my preconceived notions about how the characters were going to behave.This is just how the main character starts out ...with her snobby/snarkey attitude towards her brothers.Then a gradual awakening and shifting of opinions occurs.Well, the next thing you know is nothing should be judged by the surface,especially men.I adored the full range of characters ...funny,stubborn, loving, insightful,peaceful and also a handful. My only complaint is the title misleads you to think that this is a goofy book and it really isn't.How can it be when one of the main characters recite Nietzsche?

Magic! Absolute magic.

I LOVE this book. I have read all of the books in this series and this is the first that moved me enough to write a review on. It's the best in the series thus far. The story + the FANTASTIC narration provided by Ms. Joy Nash= well, magic. I was hooked from the first chapter. I feel in love with Drew, Ashley, and the Winston boys from the start. This is something Reid is a master at. Her characters are people that you easily fall in love with. And that you wish you knew in real life. It was more than just a rom-com. You laugh, you tear up, and you sigh dreamy thanks to the beautiful poetry throughout the book, which was simply the icing on the cake. The narrator, Joy Nash, was a pleasure to listen to. She breathed life into the characters and had excellent timing with the comedy and the poetry. BRAVO! ! I cannot wait for the next book.

Fantastic!!

Of all the Knitting in the City books, This one was beautiful. It was funny and quirky like the others. But this one was also beautiful. I may have to hear it a second time.
