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.
My thoughts : I'm not always a huge fan of novellas, since it seems like x a lot of time anyway, there is not enough time to develop the characters and the story line. And yet , they appeal to me. I am glad that I picked this one up though! Ginger and her story pulled me in from the get go! When her high school crush rides into town, she is forced to face her past and the visible scars it left on her. This is a beautiful story of redemption and forgiveness! I highly recommend it.
I received a copy of this book from Lit fuse in exchange for my honest review.
