Hi guys! Today I'm really excited to share with you the cover for one of my anticipated August reads, Beard in Mind by Penny Reid. I'm a big fan of Penny's works; her characters are always so smart, funny, and realistic. I first fell in love with the Winston brothers when they were introduced in Beauty and the Mustache. We got to see them from the sole Winston sister, Ashley's perspective, and it was a riot. Without further ado, here's the cover for Beard in Mind, which is the 4th book in the Winston Brothers series, following Beau Winston and Shelly Sullivan (Quinn from Knitting in the City series' sister):
Beard in Mind, an all new standalone in the bestselling, romantic comedy Winston Brothers Series by Penny Reid, is coming August 1st!
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.

So what do you think? I adore the tools pattern at the top of the cover and also, BEAU. From the glimpses that we had of him and Shelly in Cletus' book, I'm prepared for all the goodness that this book has to offer. Please come soon, August!
