Title: A BRUSH OF LOVE
Author: Rachel Hauck
Genre: Contemporary romance novella
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. She would always be 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.
A BRUSH OF LOVE is the January book for the second year of the Year of Weddings series with Zondervan. I loved maybe half of the books in the first year of weddings and am looking forward to this second year line-up.
Rachel Hauck is a hit or miss author for me. This book was a hit. I enjoyed getting to know Ginger, loved her sense of humor and her pride in a job well done. Tom was an absolute sweetheart, riding in on his white stallion to save the day. What a man. I loved the way he handled the old scandal when that came out—and hated the way people made a big to-do out of nothing. A beautiful faith message is included in this book. Loved it. If you love contemporary romance you will want to read A BRUSH OF LOVE.
