A Brush With Love

About The Book:  Ginger Winters is a gifted hairstylist with scars no one can see. The last thing she expects from the New Year is a new chance at love.  Overcoming a childhood tragedy, Ginger emerges from the pain and trauma with a gift for bringing out the beauty in others. From the top big city salons to traveling the world as personal stylist to a country music sensation, success was almost enough to make Ginger forget she would never be one of the beautiful people.  Ginger feels that she is that girl, forever on the outside looking in. But she needs her confidence this weekend. She’s the acclaimed “beauty-maker” for the Alabama society wedding of the decade.  When high-school crush Tom Wells Jr. also returns to town and shows up at her shop looking for a haircut, Ginger’s thinly veiled insecurities threaten to keep her locked away from love, Despite Tom’s best efforts, Ginger can’t forget how he disappeared on her twelve years ago and broke her heart. Can she ever trust him again?  When Tom challenges her to see her own beauty, Ginger must decide if she will remained chained to the past or move freely into a new, exciting future.

My Thoughts On The Book:  This was a beautiful novella. I am a huge fan of  Rachel Hauck. This novella touched a lot of nerves with me because I was Ginger.  I found myself sobbing silently in various parts of the book.  The novella is written to show the meaning of  inner beauty with a message that beauty is just something you can see on the outside. I loved both main characters. Tom and found myself hoping they would connect.  I loved how Tom's concern for Gingers spirituality was gentle and loving. This book was such a romantic interlude that you just found yourself caught up in the story before you knew what hit you.  My only problem with this novella is that it ended way to soon.  I was not ready to give it up.  This is a precious and tender read and I encourage you to get out there and start reading.
