Aundi’s Musings…

5 Winston Family Crowns

I LOVE THE WINSTON’S!!!!! I was beyond elated to find out that we were going to get to come back to Green Valley and spend time with the Winston clan again and my absolute favorite Winston Cletus. This book was quirky and entertaining with a side of suspense and I loved everything about it.

I was at once inebriated by her actions and incredulous of them.  

This book takes place shortly after where Beard Science left off with Cletus and Jen being a couple. I loved that it flowed seamlessly as if Penny had actually written it right after Beard Science and not years later. This book had the exact same feel and weight as the others and was wholly Cletus and Jen. I loved them the first time around, so I was more than ready to get back and see how far they’ve come since their first book. 

Her skin was heaven, her fragrance paradise, I was already drunk with it. Breathing heavy, wanting her all around me, in my lungs.

In this story you get to see how Jen is trying to break away and become her own person not who her parents were trying to make her, but who she is on the inside. Jen is one of my favorite heroines from Penny, she has gone through so much and dealt with more than most, but deep down she is still this beautifully sweet big-hearted person who just wants to be seen. I loved watching her evolution in the book to becoming the strong woman you know her to be. My heart broke and soared for her in equal measure during this story as I sat watching her deal with all the things thrown at her throughout.

Her grin was back, wider than before, and seemed to light and warm the desolate landscape. 

Cletus is still Cletus in the best way. This man is my favorite because of his analytical mind and unwavering loyalty. He is always 10 steps ahead of everyone in his long game and I. AM. HERE. FOR. IT. ALL! But what I loved the most was watching the way he cared for Jen. Cletus was always the one who didn’t like emotions and chose not to have them. So, to watch as he had so many emotions and feelings throughout this story it made my heart burst with happiness for him and Jen. These two are absolutely perfect for each other and they really do bring out the best qualities in the other. 

It’s the sausage. Folks are always ravenous for my sausage. 

This family and these characters will always hold a special place in my heart. You can’t help but love each and every one of them. Penny created magic when she brought this family to life and I know I love every single minute spent with them. This book is absolute perfection, I couldn’t wait to go back to Green Valley and now that I have, I don’t ever want to leave.
