    Intriguing story...
    October 31, 2013

    I enjoyed this book...an intriguing story and plot that I havent heard of before. Louisa sustains a concussion and wakes up as a different personality...Jazz Sweet.

    Through the story Louisa (aka Jazz) goes on a search to remember who she is. And as she does, she finds healing in her marriage and from her past.

    Louisa Copeland is living a bland, colorless life. She's married to an attorney who works long hours and has three kids who drive her crazy, although she loves them. Everything changes the day she lifts the indoor grill off a high shelf just as her dog runs into her. When she comes to in the hospital, she believes she is Jazz Sweet, famous romance author. She is definitely not married to Collin, the guy who wants to take her home, and she is definitely not amused the doctor and Collin think she is a mother. But neither can she find her name online nor remember her real address, so she agrees to play along for now, so long as Collin and the children call her Jazz and remember she doesn't actually belong to them.

    Thus begins this often-humorous tale of confused identity as Jazz/Louisa struggles to regain her memory. But something is blocking it, and that something might be very important indeed. What will it take to break through and rejoin the two minds that live inside her head?

    Mind of Her Own is a fun, fast-paced read that made me think about who the personalities are that live inside my own head! Diana Brandmeyer's unique sense of humor shines through. I loved this book.

    Who knew dinner could change your life? Yet that's exactly the catalyst that sets a family on a new path to find God and each otherin Mind of Her Own by Diana Brandmeyer.

    Louisa goes to make dinner, gets knocked over by the family dog and knocked out by the grill she was preparing to make dinner on. When she awakes, huge portions of her memory are gone and her family sets out to help her remember. In the process they must confront the truth of who they were, the path they were on, and whether or not they want to remain on that path or change direction.

    What I Liked

    I love the light-hearted moments of this book, and watching the heroine struggle between the woman people tell her she once was and the woman she believes herself to be in her heart. The author did a great job of building characters that I wanted to succeed, adding in realistic teenager issues from a child who I think was more learning to be her own woman than being truly rebellious. And I could totally relate to Louisa finding the writer within and learning to balance life between a family she loves and the need to connect with her story.

    What I Didn't Like

    I would have liked to see faith, God and church play a bigger role, but it's clear by the end of the story that the family is heading down that path. The husband and Father, Collin, states that he realizes that he's missed out on a lot by not being part of a community of believers, but we don't really see within the story many of the seeds of that transformation being planted or watered.

    The Bottom Line - 5 stars

    If you want to relax with a book about a group of people learning to value family, this might be the book for you. An adult theme is present near the end, but it is cleanly handled with only enough detail to communicate what is, and has, happened.

    The first words you read on the website of author Diana Lesire Brandmeyer is "Stringing 26 letters into a story." That is exactly what she did with this story. 26 Letters changed the lives of a family when the George Foreman grill fell onto the head of Louisa Copeland, wife and mother of three children.

    Have you ever felt stuck, and wished things were different? And then it happened and you wish things would go back to normal, to the familiar things? Perhaps that is the way Louisa Copeland felt before she lost her memory.

    "Louisa, baby. You gave me quite a scare. How do you feel?" His hand trembled as it gently swept across her forehead.

    "I'm Jazz." Her words oozed like cold honey past her thickened tongue. She was desperate for information and a cool drink of water. "Wrong woman. Where am I?"

    Was Jazz Sweet a figment of Louisa's imagination that became a reality? Why this dramatic change from a wife and mother of three kids to an international author?

    How did Collin Copeland cope with this drastic change in his wife? Did he prefer Jazz to Louisa, or did he wish things would go back to the way it was?

    I enjoyed Mind of Her Own tremendously. It is one of those books that you want to know how it is going to end, but you wish you could keep on reading, even after the last page. It is inevitable -the reader becomes engrossed in this family's life, experiencing the ups and downs of the three main characters. It is impossible to choose sides; all three -Collin, Louisa and Jazz have a story to tell. As a reader you want to be part of each one's story, and you hope for a romantic, happy ending for all three.

    I highly recommend Mind of Her Own.
