A Brush with Love: A January Wedding Story (A Year of Weddings Novella 2, #2) by Rachel Hauck


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.

My Review

Ginger is a famous and gifted hairstylist and has worked with a well known country singer among her accomplishments. She appears to be a sweet girl, with very low self-esteem. She does seem to have a good reason for hiding, but she really is a beautiful person.
Tom Jr is back in town and is facing his daemons, but he has turned his life over to God. Being back in the same town he was rushed out of in the dark of night, had to be a bit scary. I didn’t get that impression from him at all; he is such a bubbly and caring person that ends up singing in the street. Yes, he does.
Turns out that Tom appears to have a thing for Ginger, but she can and rather will not accept a compliment, or even a date. Ginger has a big hurt as far as Tom is concerned, he invited her for a date and then never showed, and of course that was when his family left in the middle of the night. She felt he could have called!
Can Ginger ever trust him again? Will the town accept Tom after the shame? Will Ginger ever make it through her friends wedding as their hairdresser?
There are some really funny happens here, and this becomes quite the page-turner. Wait until you see what happens in the mud, which at first I really felt bad about!
This could be anyone, but Ms. Hauck has placed me/you in this character’s shoes, and we deal with her pain, and happiness.

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
