Teaser Tuesday (45): Beauty and the Mustache

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just share two "teaser" sentences from your current read (please, no spoilers).

Beauty and the Mustache 
by Penny Reid
expected publication date: August 28, 2014
Ahh!! Love this so much! Funny and swoony and heartsy. Love me some Penny Reid!
Beauty and the Mustache (Knitting in the City, #4) 
Teaser from eARC 8%:
I imagined that this was what Snow White must've felt like when she woke up in the presence of the seven dwarves,
Seven hovering beards.
Seven sets of bewildered eyes.
Seven inquisitive expressions - half suspicious, half amused.
The fainting was my fault.
(*Quote comes from my eARC copy, therefore it and its location are not final.)
There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.

Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous— local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions— or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands— to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

This is a full-length novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the fourth book in the 'Knitting in the City' series.
