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. Rather than focus on the fluff of falling in love and being swept off your feet, it looked at the real life ups and downs of life, and focuses more on the connections that get us through that. A troubled teen, a single mom, a detached family and tense relationships, everything in this book felt real to me. It's nice to read a book that just feels transparent like this.

Eve isn't perfect, but she's likable. She's trying to raise a son who is almost as rebellious as she was in her youth, and she isn't entirely sure how to go about it. Her house is falling apart, but she's doing a job she enjoys, she has a supportive aunt but is detached from her father, and then there is the attractive handyman that wandered into her life. Nothing feels forced about these interactions though. Her aunt has her own problems, Eve tries to get through stressful situations with jokes instead of handling them, and she hasn't forgiven her father ever since she left her home when she was younger. It doesn't feel overdone like a soap opera, but has enough action and drama to keep you going like a great "slice of life" book should.

I like that Eve was an artist (I can't tell you how many books I've read recently where the main character is also a writer. They all seem destined to become best selling authors to live out the author's fantasies). Best of all, the profession [artist] was done in a believable way. Eve drew comics, and did some illustrations for children's books on the side. She got by, but like many artists, she wasn't exactly rolling in the riches.

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.

Eve Brandt is a single mother of a teenager. She had Noah at a very young age. Her father, a minister, shamed her into running and leaving to live with her aunt until the child was born. Eve enjoys her simple life with Noah. Noah has become distant and angry at life and acting up in school. She tries to talk with Noah, but he has closed down from her. She doesn't want to become like her father who was demanding, overbearing and totally had no time for her when she was a child. Billy comes into their lives when he comes to do some house improvements. Billy is interested in Eve from day one. Eve has a tendency to run from anything that is upsetting or unsettling, so she continues to push Billy away. Then out of nowhere, Noah's real father, Ty, comes into the picture and Noah decides he want to spend time with his grandfather and biological father. Eve's quiet live has become chaotic. Although this may be marked as a romance story, it is more than that. It's a very strong, emotional book and has a great story line. It share with us the life of a single mother, a dysfunctional family past and tense relationships. It's not the usual, boy meets girl and they live happily ever after. It's a very real life story and believable.

Grabbed this book one day when it was free and I did enjoy it. Sometimes the main character, Eve, was a bit annoying and her love interest (Billy) can come across a little too perfect, but the thing that felt real and true was the relationships between the different characters: Eve's complex relationships with her father and her son; the desperate longing for her teenager to have a male influence in his life. These relationships make the book worth reading. The flashbacks are not intrusive and shed just enough light at a time to make you want to keep going.

I loved this book! It is well-written, with a smart storyline. The characters come to life, and you really feel like you know them.
