In The Unfinished Mural by Jennifer D'Angelo, I can relate to Eve and the chaos that seems to be her life. Although I did not have the difficult job of raising my children without the help of a spouse, I remember the days in which they seemed quite bent on wounding me emotionally. Billy is the quintessential hero--and I love that he is there to help Eve hold it together. This book is really worth the read. I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway in return for an honest review.

It's hard to find a good romance that feels down to earth and believable, but I think The Unfinished Mural really does a good job of this.

A troubled teen, a single mom, a detached family and tense relationships, everything in thi

Fantastic read

This was a really wonderful book. I enjoyed it immensely. Have tissues near by. Also plan to read late into the night. I don't find many authors that make me loose sleep but Jennifer did with this story. Really enjoyed.

Loved it...

Eve is a very messed up 30 year old woman. An unwed mother at 16, father a widowed pastor from whom she is estranged, when she meets the hero. How this complicated woman makes her life work is great reading.

Enjoyable read. Nothing earth-shattering or wildly insightful, but still interesting.

Jennifer D’Angelo lives in Eastern Pennsylvania in a house filled with testosterone – a husband, teenage son and two boy cats. She started writing in high school when she penned a novella based on a very popular band from the eighties. While she has set aside her adolescent crush on Simon Le Bon, her imagination and love of all things fiction remain intact.
