A Brush With Love {Rachel Hauck} | #yearofweddings2 #bookbloggers #amreading #bookreview #netgalley
They've helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples. Now twelve new couples will find themselves in the wedding spotlight in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.

This hair stylist has adorned many a bride with the perfect bridal tresses. Now, she must overcome her past in order to realize that she, too, can find true love this January.

My Thoughts:
I love Rachel Hauck, and I was so excited to see that she had the second book in this Year of Weddings series.

This story is a love story, but it is about so much more than the love between a girl and a boy. Ginger Winters sees herself as an ugly outsider who no one will ever love. Her passion is to make others beautiful at her beauty salon, but deep down she longs for that unconditional love that she sees others have.

Tom Wells is the new pastor in town. He lived in in town as a kid, but left town with his family under the suspicions of a scandalous story involving his (pastor) father. He immediately has feelings for Ginger, but can't find a way to make her give him a chance.

Then Tom begins telling Ginger about Jesus, and this becomes such a beautiful love story about the unconditional love that God has for each and every one of us. We all have our back stories, our fears and doubts, and our scars. But God loves us in a way that no one on earth will ever be able to love us. God sees each of us as perfect and beautiful.
