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?

Claire's Review 5 of 5 Stars
When I was offered this book by the author in exchange for an honest review I was snowed under in review books and really didn't have the time to take on more but something about this book intrigued me and I couldn't help myself to snap it up despite it not being the type of book I usually read.
The Storm took me completely by surprise and I couldn't put it down, reading it in 24 hours! Jana is such a great strong character and someone I would love to have as a friend in real life. She goes through so much In what seems to be such a relatively short space of time. This book has you going through such a vast amount of emotions, feeling for everything that happens, I literally cried in parts and couldn't stop smiling in others.
Laura Lexington Is definitely an up and coming author to keep your eyes on and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for her next book.
