Publisher's Description

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.

    Louisa is a wife and mother of three children when her life takes a turn. After being hit on the head, she gets amnesia and thinks she's single and a famous writer named Jazz Sweet. With the help of her family, she has to remember her past. I thought this book was good, and had an interesting storyline. I wish the book had been a bit longer as I would have liked to seen more of the changes after Louisa remembered her past and how it affected her family and her life.

    A Mind of Her Own by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer is a very delightful, original, and creative novel. It captures the readers attention from the first page and is hard to put down. Wife and mom, Louisa Copeland, is an organized and seemingly perfect woman. One minute she is immersed in a romance novel, comparing the fictional couples exciting life to her own disappointing existence and wondering how it had gone so wrong. Her husband Collin had accused her of not loving him enough, and she had banned him to the couch until he apologized. It had been over a week since. That morning her workaholic attorney husband had said that he would be home early for dinnera rarity--so she planned to prepare a delicious dinner meant to lure him home earlier more often. After all, she had the main responsibility of their three children, not to mention their giant dog, even on Saturdays when Collin had to have time to himself since he worked so hard the rest of the week.

    Louisa decided on grilled chicken for dinner and balanced precariously, trying to reach the indoor grill on a shelf. When she fell to the floor, the grill toppled onto her head, knocking her unconscious. When she awakened from dreamy thoughts of the ocean and a wedding on the beach, a strange man was telling her that she was in the hospital, that she was his wife, and that they had three children, none of which sounded right to her. She knew that she was Jazz Sweet, a successful and single romance author. Having no memory of where she (Jazz) lived, she had no other option except to go home with Collin Copeland until her memory returned and her migraine headaches disappeared.

    As she explores the life of Louisa Copeland, wife to Collin and mother of three children, she discovers that their personalities and taste could not be any more different. She cannot imagine how Louisa tolerates her routine, uneventful existence. It is so far from what Jazz desires. And Collins eyes are opened to the longings of Louisas heart, hidden away from him and buried deep inside her. I highly recommend this book which is so well-crafted. It does not disappoint. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.

    Absolutely Delightful Book!

    After waking from a collision with a George Foreman grill and a Great Dane, Louisa Copeland insists that she is Jazz Sweet. She also insists that she has no idea who this Lousia Copeland person is that everyone keeps insisting is she. While the man that claims to be her husband is kind of cute, Jazz isnt too sure he is trustworthy. And three kids? Surely she would remember if she had three children! Wouldnt she?

    Diana Lesire Brandmeyer has written a marvelous story with Mind of Her Own. It is both heart-warming and heart-wrenching while at the same time it is hilarious and fun. I laughed out loud and I shed some tears while following Jazz/Louisas journey through retrograde amnesia. I highly recommend this book. It is delightful!

    This is a mesmerizing tale of Louisa, who is a wife, mother and a very unhappy woman. As the story begins, she is currently disengaged with family matters and her husband is on the couch. The time to make dinner comes and as she is reaching to grab something from the top shelf, it falls and she awakens in the hospital. Then the tale really takes off and concludes on a note of hope that deeply warms the heart of readers.

    One of the qualities I liked about the book was never really seeing the twists and turns in the plot. It has the flavor of a mystery with the characters lifelike in the way they think, act and interact in a family unit. The husband, Collin, basically has lost his first love for God and left the responsibilities of the home to Louisa. Collin believes that the highest goal he can attain is as a partner at the legal firm where he works many late nights.

    When a trial comes to the family, readers will wonder if this will be a new start for the family or not. We read about teenage angst, sibling rivalry and parental challenges that are so lifelike! At the end of the book, there are three short introductions to authors and their work. I have read a couple of these authors books before this book so I know their work is solid, entertaining, and faith centered.

    Who knows what will flow next from the pen of Diana? I eagerly await to see the book and read the tale!

    You can't remember your former life, but you can remember your alter ego. You can't remember your husband or your children, but you can remember your dreams. This is what Louisa Copeland's life becomes as she is suddenly transformed into Jazz Sweet.

    What I really like about this books is that it shows a dual plot. Not only does Louisa/Jazz try to remember, but she is also trying to forget. There are things in the past that many of us wish to forget and Louisa/Jazz gains that blessing. Blessing? Yeah, because this injury that caused her amnesia is also the healing ointment for her life. Playing it safe and being perfect isn't what will cut it in her new life.

    Diana Brandmeyer did a great job at telling this story and the healing that comes between Louisa and Collin. I only wish some points were more detailed emotionally to really gain the fear that lurked around Jazz trying to remember who she was as Louisa and the fear of disappearing if Louisa came back.

    It's an enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone.

    **I received this book by Tyndale through The Book Club Network.**
