The Storm by Laura Lexington

The Storm by Laura Lexington

Jana Cook was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth, but her fierce determination leads to a successful career in medical device sales. Toss in five-star meals, fabulous sex with her nearly perfect husband, Andrew, and a gorgeous new house … and Jana’s life is picture perfect before she hits the big 3-0. What more can a girl want? 
Overnight, her life begins to unravel. When Jana discovers she is pregnant, she dives from hero to zero in the eyes of Covington Company. Despite a resume most would kill for, Jana finds herself unemployed and devastated. Challenging her employer could change her life … if she wins. Does she have the strength to handle the gossip and face the likely reality of being blackballed from her industry? 
As Jana struggles to make the right choice, her vivacious best friend, Grace, is convinced her own heartthrob husband, Gavin, is hiding something. Despite Jana’s best efforts to convince her that she is wrong, Grace’s mental illness overpowers reality. Jana was a superstar in scrubs, but navigating first time motherhood is real work … especially in the midst of secrets, lies, and unthinkable tragedy. 
She makes her decision. And while Andrew promises to never let her fall, will love be enough to spark the bravery she needs to survive the storm that threatens to overcome her?

4 Stars
Jana had the life...
The wonderful Husband.
The Perfect Job and friends she could count on.

One thing though...she wanted to be closer to her family. When the opportunity came up to move back they made it happen.
They found the perfect house.
They were now home near their family's. The perfect time to start a family, her husband thought.

But when it rains, it pours...or in Jana's world, boulders fell from the sky.

Okay so without giving anything away I will try to share my feelings on this story the best I can
Jana had a great friend in Grace. A best friend but the situation that unfolded was heartbreaking and I read forward as the tears fell. Poor Poor Gavin, and baby Emma.
Jana will never be the same after finding what she did on that horrific afternoon.

Her life became a whirlwind of unpredictable...

The Character Development was there, the intensity within the story line was there.

I know their is more to come with the ending being left the way it was and I must say I am intrigue. I need to know what Alexia King had that shocked Jana and Andrew. I have a unsettled feeling about what it may be a million different scenarios are running through my mind.

You have done well Laura Lexington...very well!
