—The Burn Zone: A Memoir

Book Reviews

"Her stories will resonate. Her advice will have you shaking your head in agreement. She brings such a light that just reminds us to love ourselves and to shine brightly."

-What Is This Book About

“My main takeaway from this book and Linnell as a writer is how incredibly strong and brilliant she is.” 

- The Plucky Reader

"This is one woman you cannot tell to stay in a box of any kind. Magic, miracles, travel, and romance…oh, must mention she is stranded at one point in the Himalayas, 22,000 feet up…yes, this gal is a true adventuress. Join me for a very unique conversation with a global traveler who isn’t afraid to try the unique, the unusual…who believes that life is magic and anything is possible."

-Donna Seebo

“Easily the best memoir I’ve ever read.” 

-Book Recon

"From cover to cover, I was constantly learning, thinking, and, quite often, being amazed at the experiences Renee has had in her life so far...Thank you Renee for sharing your experiences with the world!" 

- Library of Tortuga

“This page turner of a memoir is part cautionary tale, part inspirational story that speaks volumes about what makes people human and their longing to belong. The language is down to earth and easy to understand without any complicated meditation terms to learn. She simply tells her story in the hopes of inspiring others to live their true self. ‘The Burn Zone’ is recommended for readers who appreciate memoirs with spiritual and meditation themes.”

-SA Examiner

"Linnell describing her depression felt like I was reading parts of my own life in the last few years. If you’ve ever wanted to know what is going on with a loved one while they suffer from depression I can’t recommend this book enough. It’s raw and powerful and it’s true. And the way out of depression is also true. It’s not a quick process and if you want to know more definitely read this book.”

-Tea, Chocolate, and Books

"I cheered Renee on from the start. She finds purpose in her life right before the reader’s eyes, and what’s more relatable than that? I was captivated by the story and emotional at different points due to the author’s brutal honesty and vulnerability. Overall, I found The Burn Zone an impressive and memorable memoir, one that will stick with me."
