Book Summary:

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.




I’ve really enjoyed the A Year of Wedding Novellas ebooks.  A Brush With Love is new novella coming next month from one of my favorite authors Rachel Hauck. I started this about the time I should have been turning out my light last night.  It was 1:30 am when I finished it and finally got to sleep.

Zondervan is a Christian publisher. Some of these novellas have had strong Christian undertones to them and others have been more mainstream.  Of the dozen novellas I have read from this series this one leans further toward the Christian fiction end of the spectrum.  Being a religious person this didn’t bother me at all. As several of the main characters featured in this book are in fact clergy this actually fits with the story well. I expect religious people to turn to God for answers and have them in their thoughts.

A Brush with Love is Ginger’s story.  We learn very early on in the story that parts of her body were badly burned and scarred in a fire when she was young.  Despite her talent for making other people look their best she keeps herself hidden behind long sleeves and scarves. By the end of this story I was picturing burn victim Stephanie Nielson who despite her disfiguring injuries is a light and beacon to others.

Recommended to those who enjoy Christian romance.
