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.
I always enjoy Rachel’s books because she has so much depth to them. If you look beyond the words that are written you will find a gospel message.
This book was no exception.
Ginger struggles with her scars. She believes she must cover them up so no one else can see them and if people do see them they will reject her. She believes she could never be beautiful, that a happy-ever-after will never happen for her.
But Tom sees the truth. He sees beyond her scars into her heart and knows she is beautiful.
Isn’t this message so true of many of us? We hide our scars, our past, or we cling to them and allow them to define us, instead of using our scars for His glory. Remember Thomas didn’t believe it was Jesus until he saw the scars. Many people won’t see Jesus until we start sharing our scars with others.
Anyway, that is the underlying message I got out of the super quick read. If you are looking for a fast little romance I recommend this one.
