A Brush with Love by Rachel Hauck

About the book:
A Brush with Love | A Year of Weddings novella (Zondervan, January 2015)
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 her she would never be one of the beautiful people.

Almost. Now that she’s back home in Rosebud, Alabama and running her own salon, the truth remains: Ginger is still 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.

Margie's Comments: A Brush with Love by Rachel Hauck was a wonderful way to start off my reading in 2015.  It is a heartwarming love story, is a quick read (novella), and has a challenging spiritual thread that doesn't beat you over the head. The characters are well-developed. The only thing I didn't like about the plot is that it wasn't long enough! But the author does state in her acknowledgments that she had enough material to write a full-length book. Truly, it has an excellent plot. I highly recommend this book for those who love romance and/or those who only have time for a quick read.
