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 missing out on what matters most.
I consider everything Penny Reid writes to be a “must read” and Beard in Mind is absolutely no exception. It’s tough to read at times, but I don’t mean that in a negative way. It’s still has Penny’s trademark wit and heart, but delivers those along with some more serious issues.
I’ve enjoyed several of Brett Young’s songs, but probably none more than Like I Loved You.
Don’t tell me we can still be friends
Hanging on the weekend
You’re gonna be okay if I start seeing somebody new
You hope that I do
It won’t be long
Till I forget to call every time that I’m drinking
And you ain’t the love song
I can’t keep from singing
I gotta be honest
You really believe that’s the truth
You never loved me like I loved you
It makes me uncomfortable to even share this photo, but I feel like it’s important to do it. Yes, this is happening in 2017 in the United States. I have a lot of feelings about it, but I’m not doing a very good job of putting those feelings into words. But, I’m not just sharing this picture for shock value. It’s from a blog post that expresses my feelings far better than I’ve been able to so far. So, I guess this is really more a “must read” than “must see” but regardless, take a few minutes and read this one. It’s well worth the time.
