Title: Beauty and the Mustache
Series: Knitting in the City #4
Author: Penny Reid
Rating: 

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, reclusive mountain man, 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. 

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


Beauty and the Mustache begins when Ashley has to go back home after being gone for eight years because she can't get a hold of her mother and she's worried. Upon returning back to her home town she is reunited with her brothers, and a new handsome stranger who seems to instantly hate her. 

Drew has a bad past when it comes to women, and now seeing Ashley just changes his whole outlook on the matter. Especially when he's heard so many things about her for so long when he thought she was a guy not a girl. Now as Ashley, her brothers and Drew have to deal with the problems ahead, Drew and Ashley are fighting a major attraction to each other that seems to be leading to more. Even though they don't want it to.

I really enjoyed this book. It had the perfect amount of humor in it to have me laughing a whole heck of a lot. But at times it was also a little sad. I also really loved the hero! He was sweet, and passionate, and a freaking peoet!! *Swoons*

The heroine was interesting, but some times she got a little bit on my nerves. However, I completely felt bad for a lot of the stuff she had to go through. It all just seemed like to much at times. But the book ended with an awesome HEA, and I was sad to see it end! This was another great addition to this hilarious series of Knitting in the City!
