"Rise & Shine" by Sandra D. Bricker

About this book:

  “Shannon Malone thought she'd found her happy ending when she married Edmund Ridgeway, but a diving accident on their honeymoon left her in a coma. Waking up to the news that she's thirty years old would have been daunting enough . . . but she also learns that Edmund has lost his interim battle with cancer and the world has marched on without her. Her gorgeous doctor, Daniel Petros, seems to know everything about her and becomes Shannon's tour guide into a whole new world of madness where reality television has taken over the planet and everyone's life appears to revolve around a tiny screen on their cell phones!
  As Shannon struggles to navigate through the changes-both in the world
and in her-she also must discern real memories from imagined ones. Did she really ever wear capris pants and entertain in her living room, or was that Laura Petrie from her favorite classic TV show? And where is her beloved dog, Freeway? Oh, wait! That was Jonathan and Jennifer Hart's dog, not hers.
  Shannon's three elderly aunts flit through her life in true
Sleeping Beauty style with her well-being always a priority. And Edmund's sister Millicent descends like the Evil Queen she is, trying to extract Shannon from any claim on the Ridgeway family fortune. When a tornado moves through town and Shannon is knocked unconscious, will Daniel's kiss awaken her once and for all?”

My personal Rating-
Heeheehee! There were many parts that I would just burst out laughing! {and some parts where I was swooning!} The first book in this series, “If the Shoe Fits”, was good but I enjoyed “Rise & Shine” so much! I was shocked at the plot twists and laughed so hard!

See y'all tomorrow with another review!
