I received this book from Tydale House Publishers through Tyndale Blog Network for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.
Who knew making dinner could change your life? Louisa Copeland
certainly didn’t. But when the George Foreman grill fell out of the
pantry onto her head, resulting in a bump and a mighty case of amnesia,
Louisa’s life takes a turn for the unexpected. Who was this Collin
fellow, claiming she was his wife? And whose kids are those? Her name
couldn’t be Louisa. Why, she was the renowned romance writer Jazz Sweet,
not a Midwestern mom of three. Struggling to put the pieces together of
the life she’s told she had, Louisa/Jazz may realize that some memories
are better left alone.
Mind of Her Own is the first book by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer that I have had the opportunity to read and what a book! When I read the description of this book I knew I had to request it, because it just stuck with me. Louisa Copeland is a Mom and a Wife who spends her days taking care of her family. One night while making dinner she has an accident. A grill falls on her head in her pantry. When she wakes up she isn't Louisa, she is Jazz Sweet. She has no recollection of Louisa or her family. Jazz is an author from Florida, who is single, and has no children. Now she has a husband and children. As she takes part in Lousia life, she makes it her own but no one is sure she will ever remember who she is or who her family are.
I truly enjoyed this book and really felt a kinship with Louisa. Louisa was unhappy in her life, hiding her true self, and her true passions. Mind of Her Own is a fast paced, colorful story that really touched me. Diana Lesire Brandmeyer writes a beautiful story about an unhappy marriage, unhappy life, transformations, and falling in love again. I found myself unable to put this book down, it truly drew me in. The characters were great, real people with not so perfect lives. I found myself laughing and crying in parts. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction. I look forward to reading more by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer. I give this book 5 stars.
