Goodreads:  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.

Kritters Thoughts:  A novella from Rachel Hauck who is one of the only Christian fiction authors that I will read.  All of her books definitely fit in the Christian fiction genre and you would be remiss not to know that there is definitely some Jesus in each book.  But even though I don't tend to love Christian fiction, I love the plot lines and this one was right up there.  

I loved the characters and loved their back story.  I just loved Ginger's story.  I could have had so much more time hearing about her childhood and how she became the woman she was.  Although I say this again later, I wanted more time with her.  I wanted to hear more about her and wanted more from her.

The one thing I had with this book is I wish it wasn't a novella.  I wish the author had more pages to make the book feel more full.  I felt that the book had a part of insta love and a quick turn around of a main character, but I think it is solely because of the lack of pages and if given a few more pages, she could have built the story out more.  So my wish is for more pages!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
