Mind of her Own by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer
Who knew making dinner could change your life? Louisa Copeland certainly didn’t. But when the George Foreman grill falls 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 is this Collin fellow, claiming she is his wife? And whose kids are those? Her name can’t be Louisa. Why, she is 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.
About The Author
Diana Lesire Brandmeyer, an accomplished author with a background in education and psychology, reflects on her experiences as a widowed mom with two sons who married a widowed dad with a so of his own. Now, with a few years of perspective, she uses the narrative of her experience to help others better navigate the issues that arise in a new family in the book We’re not Blended We’re Pureed, A Survivor’s Guide.
Brandmeyer’s inspirational romance writing often deals with abandonment issues and the struggle to believe you are not alone.
Louisa is closing a book cover when she goes to make dinner, but she ends up being hit in the head by her Forman Grill, and now she not the same person who originally went into the kitchen. When Lousia comes to, she is now Jazz Sweet, and she doesn’t know her husband or her children.
Now what a dilemma, she is now a Christian romance writer, only she doesn’t remember her agent, or her address or phone number, and finally goes home with the man claiming to be her husband, Collin Copeland. Nothing is familiar to Jazz, and her family recognizes her, but she is a completely different person. She doesn’t cook, where Louisa was obsessed with cooking, no laundry, no house cleaning, but then she lets her fingers do the walking, and things become tiptop shape! This mother, loves spending time with the children, she shops with her daughter and they have a blast, the family comes to love this new “Mom”.
Will the old Mom ever come home, will Laurie remember, and all the time in the back of my mind I had a feeling it had something to do with a reference to Mexico. Will Jazz figure out her identity? Will her best friend forgive her, and you will be laughing at why?
I found this book to be a fast read, and page-turner to find the answers, and the ending will be a surprise. Enjoy!!
