Twice Again (Paperback)
Words and Wine presentor for February 2019— From Words and Wine Author Talk Story
Twenty-eight-year-old Laura is married to the famous composer, Jake Talbot. She has the oceanfront estate and the fancy clothes. She has the perfect life. So it seems.
Jake is handsome and charming, but also manipulative. He engages in emotional and physical abuse of Laura, who has become adept at hiding the truth to keep the peace. Jake forces Laura to keep their home spotless, yet he's never satisfied with her tireless efforts, seizing every opportunity to find fault. One fatal slip by Laura pushes Jake over the edge and, in his fury, he murders her.
Instead of finding peace in death, Laura jolts awake in another woman's body. She struggles to understand what has happened while she adapts to her new environment. With help from her new friends, she endeavors to discover who she really is without Jake to bully and control her.
In her new body as Bridget, she meets Sam, who seems like the man of her dreams. Could he be another version of Jake, condemning Laura to live the same life of domestic abuse again? Or will living as Bridget finally give her the chance to grow into the kind of woman she was meant to be?
