Book Review - Mind of Her Own

I received a complimentary copy of the book, Mind of Her Own by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review of the book.

Brief Synopsis from the back of the book:

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.

My thoughts on the book:
This book captured my attention from the very beginning of the story as Diana wove a very easy to read tale of a young wife/mother who ends up with amnesia caused from a grill falling on her head. 
Louisa is harboring a dark secret from her past that she cannot recall and after the accident she believes she is a romance novelist named, "Jazz Sweet." -  The story continues as Lousia/Jazz interacts with her family even though she does not believe that she is married nor has ever had children.  As the story unfolds Louisa/Jazz must deal with her memory loss and the complications of living life with a husband and children that she does not remember. 
I thoroughly enjoyed the banter between "Jazz" and Collin who is Louisa's husband.  -  They had a struggling marriage as each one seemed lost in their own world and problems.  Through the book they come to know each other better and learn to rely on God and their faith to see them through this crisis.
The book was fun to read and one that I didn't want to put down until the last page was read.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a really engaging story that had some good lessons along with enjoyable characters, a good plot and a great ending.



  1. Hello, sounds like a great story, thanks for the review. Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. Sounds interesting. I have watched so many episodes of tv shows based on one of the stars getting amnesia.

  3. sounds like something I might enjoy....when I needed a light read.

  4. Great review! I'm an avid reader and this one sounds interesting. I'll have to watch for it.

  5. I've added it to my list :-)

  6. Love your bright sun-shiny header! Yellow is the perfect color for August!!

  7. Sounds like an interesting book. I'd like to think that I'd instinctively bond in some way with/recognise my son/ husband/ parents if I got hit over the head with a heavy object, but that's probably just wishful thinking. I hope I never get to find out for real though. All the best, Bonny
