Why did I love this book?
Beard Science manages to be laugh-out-loud hilarious, thought-provoking, and utterly charming at the same time. Cletus Winston is one of those characters who’s stayed with me. He’s quirky and devious but has a heart of gold hidden beneath his bushy beard. He’s always overlooked Jennifer Sylvester, which is why it’s so perfect that she’s the one who challenges his view of the world.
Jennifer has been living in the image her parents molded for too long, and when she decides enough is enough, she blackmails Cletus into helping her break free. Her story is one of self-discovery, and it’s uplifting to see her self-confidence grow until she knows she’s capable of standing on her own two feet. As a couple, Cletus and Jennifer are zany, endearing, and totally perfect.
