Mind of Her Own by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer

Book 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.

My Thoughts:  I loved the title of this book and this is another new author for me so I grabbed this read!
Louisa Copeland is the perfect wife.  Don't you just love that her last name begins with "cope."  Since Louisa seems to be able to do anything and do it well. She copes well.
But that one fateful afternoon when George Foreman knocks her cold...ah!  not The Boxer but the grill....Louisa begins to find herself.  And, well, it seems that her husband begins to find out a few things about himself as well as his perfect wife.
So, Jazz, the creative/bold woman begins the life of Louisa, the boring/bland, woman.  Sometimes when we think we have it all together that's when God allows things to unravel so that we find Him in our everyday mess.
The old story of amnesia is told in an all new way.  And it's pretty funny at times.  But this story also has a serious note.  My take?  Do we, women, try to be too perfect and maybe, just maybe, let life take away our joy?  Because in reality none of us are perfect as this fun story points out in quite a nice way.
A great read!
