The Strom 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?

So I cracked open Laura book and was sorta freaking out, thats what I usually do when I find out that it is a authors first book. Being Laura's debut novel I had no idea what to expect. I was so shocked to find out it was AMAZING!!
The topic of choice was one that not to many authors want to dive into. Laura decided to take the plunge and gosh was it well worth it. She gave us a book that needed to be written.
Jana the main character is the BIG 3-0 and has always been a career woman and when she finds out she is pregnant her world crumbles beaneth her. I was so shocked and felt for Jana.
Than there is Grace she is Jana's best friend and Jana loves
her as if she is her own sister. However, Grace is dealing with her
own demons especially when she think her husband is hiding something. Grace she was one hell of a girl I wanted to hug her and slap her at the same time. Its hard to say but Grace she was
unique in her own way. When Laura created Grace I think she
had the best intentions. I loved her charachter.
Jana's husband Andrew goodness gracious can any one
even compare to Andrew I think not! He is the best more
supportive husband ever. Not bad on the eyes either.
I loved him he was my favorite part of the whole book!
Laura I thank you for tackling such a diffucult topic hun
you really nailed it and I cant not wait for the next book!!
