Much like Cletus’ sausage, Penny Reid has a winning recipe when it comes to her Winston brothers series. This delicious morsel of contemporary reading hooks readers with its tasty storylines, delicious characters and an aftertaste that leaves us salivating for more.
On the menu this time has to be one of my most anticipated characters, Cletus Winston. From his very first introduction he commandeered the limelight with his scene stealing antics, and I've waited impatiently for his turn front of house.
If there's one thing we do already know about Cletus, it's that he's wiley, sneaky and has his fingers in many suspect pies - all in the name of protecting his family. He also has an persona as a somewhat oddball, which he's more than happy to use to his advantage.
Someone who isn't falling for any of Cletus' tricks is one of the Towns most underrated and underestimated residents, Jennifer Sylvester. For she is onto Cletus and as dangerous as she thinks he maybe, he's just what she needs to shed her unwanted skin.
They form an unlikely alliance, (which just so happens to be one of my favourite pairings), and what ensues is a robust, lively romance that appeals to my sweet tooth and my harm warming sentiments.
Penny once again delivers a stella dish that has me sending my compliments to the chef.
“Everything is temporary, Cletus. This,” he gestured to our surroundings, “this is temporary. Even mountains fall. Nothing lasts forever. You got a chance at happiness, even for a week, a month, a year? You grab it and hold on to it for as long as it lasts. I want you to seize.”
Her writing is amazing. I love that in this book we learnt little things. Every so often she's start a Paragraph with a little secret of a secondary person within the book. I loved this!
Cletus's middle name wasn't "Evasive" but it should have been.
I have wanted to read about Cletus since Reid introduced us to him in Beauty and Mustache and I have to admit that she didn't disappoint me in the slightest. If anything, she even surpassed my expectations and hopes for Cletus and his love interest. Although he isn't as mysterious anymore he's still oh so mindblowingly wondrous to read about. And so was Jennifer.
When Penny dropped the bomb that Cletus wouldn't get together with Quinn's sister Shelly as hinted at the end of Grin and Beard It (and in a newsletter or two), but rather with Jennifer - the queen of banana cakes, I was actually a bit flabbergasted as I really thought that Cletus and Shelly would make a lot of sense. But I don't think so anymore. It isn't because Shelly's not awesome - she still is - but Cletus and our little blackmailing Banana Cake Queen actually make a lot more sense as these two make me gush and they're oh so right for one another.
I am actually kind of cheating with this reading challenge point because I would literally like to be as awesomeballs as Cletus Winston. I don't think I would like to be him per se because his beard is a bit too unruly for my tastes, but the conniving, clever, funny, adorable Cletus Winston is freaking awesome and you'd have to be nuts to not to be someone as great as him.
If you haven't read Penny Reid yet, what on Earth are you still waiting for? Go grab a book and be prepared to fall in love. :)
From the first time I read Beauty and the Moustache I have been intrigued by the character of Cletus. In the previous books he has been presented as somewhat of an oddity - he is clearly intelligent and capable but his turn of phrase can sometimes make him seem unintelligent and peculiar.
Jennifer and Cletus seem like polar opposites early on but as the story progresses it is soon apparent that they have more in common than you (or they!) ever realised. It is also interesting to see how Penny Reid continues to hint at the consequences of their childhood on each of the Winston's, with Cletus making decisions about relationships based on his father and elements of his character he feels he has inherited without stating this in an overly dramatic or clinical way that is sometimes too easy for authors to do.
Jennifer's desperation to move away from a controlling mother may make her seem a vulnerable character at first but as the relationship with Cletus continues, she begins to recognise a strength in herself and becomes a stronger protagonist, and also a more realistic and relateable character for it.
I love Penny Reid's novels because through her series the connections between characters continues to develop and grow rather than move from one story ad forget what has come before, so in some ways the series feels like one long story in episodes rather than separate parts (which is ideal if like me you always want to know what happens after the end/epilogue!)
