Release Blitz & Book Review: DR. STRANGE BEARD by Penny Reid


Dr. Strange Beard, an all-new standalone in the bestselling, romantic comedy Winston Brothers Series by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Penny Reid, is LIVE!


Hunches, horse races, and heartbreak

Ten years after Simone Payton broke his heart, all Roscoe Winston wants is a doughnut. He’d also like to forget her entirely, but that’s never going to happen. Roscoe Winston remembers everything—every look, every word, every single unrequited second—and the last thing he needs is another memory of Simone.

Unfortunately, after one chance encounter, Simone keeps popping up everywhere he happens to be . . .

Ten years after Roscoe Winston dropped out of her life, all Simone Payton wants is to exploit him. She’d also like some answers from her former best friend about why he ghosted her, but if she never gets those answers, that’s a-okay. Simone let go of the past a long time ago. Seriously, she has. She totally, totally has. She is definitely not still thinking about Roscoe. Nope. She’s more than happy to forget he exists.

But first, she needs just one teeny-tiny favor . . .

Dr. Strange Beard is a full-length romantic comedy novel, can be read as a stand-alone, and is the fifth book in the USA TODAY bestselling Winston Brothers series.

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

This book is exactly what I was hoping for and so much more. I love Roscoe. I’ve been waiting for his story since I started this series. Penny Reid is an amazing author. I have loved this series for a time now. It seems that Penny Reid did an amazing job with my favorite Winston brother.

Roscoe has a past that haunts him. He’s everything I wanted him to be and more. He’s smart, funny, and is feeling. It’s not often that a character has a heart. Roscoe has that and so much more. But he doesn’t have the one thing he can’t get out of his head, Simone.

Simone is well, I’m trying to find the right words for how I feel about her. I wanted to not like her. I tried so very hard, but dammit if I couldn’t. She’s smart, funny, and has no problem standing up for herself. She wants to fix things with Roscoe, but isn’t sure how to do that. Things aren’t exactly as they seem to be.

What I do know is that Penny Reid is amazing and talented. Her writing keeps me entertained as well as wanting more. I love all her stories and I can’t wait to see whats to come.
