If you’re in the need of a pick-me-up (to be honest, who isn’t right now?), then Engagement and Espionage is just the ticket! Especially and particularly if you are a fan of Jenn and Cletus from Penny Reid’s Winston Brothers series!
While it’s not 100% necessary to read their book (Beard Science) prior to this one, I HIGHLY recommend and encourage you do. It’ll help bring the full scope of the story into focus and I think you’ll more thoroughly enjoy the antics, oddness, and loveliness of Cletus and Jenn.
Keep reading for a synopsis of Engagement and Espionage and links to buy a copy for yourself (because you know you want to!). My review will be up here on the blog and Goodreads soon.

Add on Goodreads
Jennifer Sylvester made her deal with the devil . . . and now they’re engaged!
But all is not well in Green Valley. A chicken choker is on the loose, 61 dead birds most “fowl” need plucking, and no time remains for Jennifer and her devilish fiancé. Desperate to find a spare moment together, Jenn and Cletus’s attempts to reconnect are thwarted by one seemingly coincidental disaster after another. It’s not long before Cletus and Jenn see a pattern emerge and the truth becomes clear.
Will an undercover mission unmask the culprit? Or are these love-birds totally plucked?
‘Engagement and Espionage’ is the first book in the Solving for Pie: Cletus and Jenn Mysteries series, is a full-length cozy mystery, and is a spin-off of Penny Reid’s Winston Brothers series. This novel is best read after ‘Beard Science,’ Winston Brothers #3. Read my review of Beard Science here.
