A Brush with Love by Rachel Hauck (A Year of Weddings Novella) Book Review + Win a Kindle Fire

Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the novella from the publisher via Litfuse Group in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions are 100% my own.

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.

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-

I hadn't heard that there was to be a second Year with Weddings novellas, but I was so excited to get to read the first in the series and look forward to the ones coming up over the next year. I am a sappy girl who enjoys sappy love stories and novellas are a nice little break from longer novels since they are short and can be read in a very small time span. Overall I enjoyed the story and seeing Ginger go from sad and intimidated to being strong and confident and finding true love. I understand that she has scars (both literally and figuratively) from her past, but that she couldn't forgive someone who had hurt her 12 years previously or given him the benefit of the doubt about the way things went down was a little overbearing. I know that there are people out there like that though and thankfully Tom was persistent and she finally gets the full story of why he moved away abruptly. At that point, it makes sense as to why he hadn't previously told her exactly what happened when it did. I was happy to see the story come full circle and to have everything ironed out in the end. It was a great story of forgiveness, redemption and love. I recommend A Brush with Love to anyone who enjoys Christian romance.
