Twenty-One Trees

When trauma gives Savannah May Holladay dissociative amnesia, life as she thought she knew it is gone—and only her childhood friend’s undying love provides any hope for recovery.

by, Linda Cousine

Book summary:

 

Sometimes, secrets are the ties that bind two people together for life—especially the painful ones. Savannah May Holladay and her best friend from childhood, James “Birdy” Johnson, harbor many, many dark secrets.

Birdy also has an undying love for Savannah that spans over two decades. Unfortunately for him, Savannah is a wealthy debutante engaged to the town’s most eligible bachelor—and Birdy is a truck driver.

But after a nasty incident, Savannah wakes up in a hospital bed and can’t remember one thing about the past seven years—not her marriage to Birdy instead of her boyfriend, and especially not the birth of their four children. In what feels like an instant, she’s lost her perfect life and become an impoverished housewife.

Savannah must struggle through her memory loss to recover some kind of love for her husband and children. Will Birdy’s unwavering devotion be enough to carry her through and bring back her lost years? Or could Birdy’s own secrets make matters even worse?

Twenty-One Trees is a beautiful story about depression, abuse, friendship, loyalty and love. I highly recommend giving it a read!

She had it all...

 

Lexi Taylor had the picture perfect life - beauty, fame, a loving family, and a long-standing contract as the face of an international cosmetics line. But after Lexi hit the big five-o, menopause moved in and her husband moved out, followed by her friends, figure, and her modeling career. As Lexi finds her life overrun with the seven signs of menopause (Itchy, Bitchy, Sleepy, Sweaty, Bloated, Forgetful, and All Dried Up), swimsuit shoots, itch-free luminous skin, and even remembering her ATM pin number becomes a thing of the past.

 

And lost it in a hot flash...

 

Scoring illegal hormone therapy from across the border, and even dating a man half her age can't keep Lexi on the straight and narrow, and after being arrested for a moment of menopause-induced madness, a family intervention convinces Lexi she needs some professional help. She checks herself into Sunnyvale Sanitarium, Home for the Mostly Menopausal, for a ninety-day stay. With the help of one hot and sexy doctor and one very therapeutic run, Lexi manages to reclaim her sanity, her self respect, and her sex life, and learns that menopause might just have helped her become the woman she was always meant to be.

Too Hot to Hold

A Middle-Aged Hottie Series - Book 2

by, Linda Cousine

Hot flashes made her sweat...

 

Lexi Taylor is no stranger to midlife crisis. After all, a menopausal meltdown landed her at the Sunnyvale Sanitarium for Mostly Menopausal for a ninety-day stay. Since finding her sanity there, this former supermodel's faculties are back on track. She puts family first, and is on the road to patching things up with her ex-husband, Richard, who seems intent on turning up the heat between them.

 

Now her Ex makes her sizzle...

 

But when Richard moves back in, he brings his buddies from his pro-wrestler career with him - a gentle giant, a cannon-balling midget, and a monkey with a police record. Lexi's Bel Air home has become a regular three-ring circus. Add a new ex-husband with erratic mood swings and a questionable vitamin therapy, and Lexi wonders if she is making the right choice. After a spa weekend with her daughter that turns out to be a visit to a nudist commune, a modeling gig that's actually for adult diapers, and extortion for a sex video she didn't know existed, Lexi feels close to losing it - again. But this time, hormones are the least of her worries as Lexi must find a way to keep her family together and save her ex-husband from jeopardizing his health. She faces the biggest challenges of her menopausal life: does her past have a place in her future? Or is it time to move on?

But Lexi might just be facing a few false starts when her aging father’s Alzheimer’s grows more serious and he becomes a patient at the Forget Me Not memory care center, where more often than not, he thinks she’s her mother and insists on turning up the heat between them.

Parenthood is the last thing Lexi has time for, but soon she finds herself bonding with Richard’s pseudo-daughter, even while trying to repair the broken relationships with her own. The stress of their lives threatens to put the brakes on Lexi and Richard’s plans to remarry. Even as Lexi struggles to balance the new challenges in her life, she just might learn that the second time around the track could be better than the first.

Books For Younger Readers

Dead Again

Dark Dreams

by, Linda Rey

Seventeen-year-old Joan Portman knows a thing or two about murder – her own. While most girls her age are dreaming about boys and college, Joan’s sleep is littered with grueling visions of her impending demise, images that seem as real to her as the sharp claws, the bullet, and the charred skin of her horrific nightmares.

Convinced that she is either going insane or having crazy side effects from her OCD meds, Joan muddles through her days, at odds with her parents who haven’t the slightest clue how to help with the dreams or Joan’s habitual cutting. Thinking a vacation might do the trick, the family sets out on a country-hopping European excursion. It is there that things go from strange to surreal when Joan discovers her dreams are authentic memories of her former lives. In Rome, Joan finds herself transported back in time to her last few weeks as a young gladiator fending off wild beasts in the Colosseum in 90 AD. In Germany, Joan relives the harrowing months of her life as a sixteen-year-old piano prodigy helping a handful of condemned Jews escape Auschwitz in 1943. In France, Joan will catapult back to 1431, and her final days as Joan of Arc, the heroine of France, burned at the stake for heresy when she was only nineteen.

But the key to Joan’s recovery may lie in a final act of bravery – one that will require her to risk her life once again, and this time it just may be her last.

Confessions of a Nerdy Girl

Books for Tweens

by, Linda Rey

Wilhelmina Shisbey is unlucky Number Thirteen—the thirteenth person in the world to be documented with H-SAM (Highly Superior Autographical Memory.) For Willa, every crummy day of her loser life is as vivid as the last, beginning the moment her birth mother dumped her off at an orphanage, one day after her first birthday. But Willa’s reality becomes much worse than a string of old memories when her adoptive family moves from a Chicago suburb to Huntington Beach, California, where Willa continues to struggle as the outsider that she’s always been.

That is… until her luck changes when she becomes friends with super smart Marley Applegate, editor of the troubled school paper, and intentional under-achiever Cody Cassidy, the hottest boy at Triton Middle School. Surviving middle school is a fulltime job. But when a new student arrives on campus—a boy with cerebral palsy strapped in a wheelchair—it’s up to Willa to prove to her classmates that it just might be cool to be kind.

Nerdy Girls Don't

Books for Tweens

by, Linda Rey

On the My Life Sucks scale of one to ten, Wilhelmina Shisbey’s life is an eleven. 
 
Bad enough that’s she’s a medically documented freak-of-nature, with the ability to recall her past with the accuracy of a computer. Now, her adoptive mom has run off and taken her sister, her parents are divorcing, and her OCD has gotten so out of control that she’s pushed away the only two friends she has.

Willa’s troubles continue to grow, and cement her nerdy girl status at Triton Middle School, when a shortage of boys in her science class has the teacher pairing her with the new student—a girl—for a class project. Willa and her partner must “marry” and care for a computerized baby for seventy-two hours in order to pass the course. The only problem is that Willa, “the girl who can’t forget,” has somehow managed to lose the baby.
