You may remember that I’m fairly fond of Penny Reid. (We’re engaged. Although she’s not returning my calls, so I may have to send back my wedding goats.)
Anyway, she has a new book coming out soon in the spin-off series from her Knitting in the City series.
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 everyone’s 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 Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.
Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.
She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t 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 Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.
I have been loving these covers, even though they remind me of the dark times (when I used to try to be crafty via cross-stitch and other needlepoint endeavors).
I am very much looking forward to this book, because WINSTON BROTHERS! Bearded hotties! I love me some bearded hotties. *sigh*
So – go forth in anticipation and preorder (August 1 release date)!
