Melissa Storm is quickly becoming a new favorite author of mine with her new book A Colorful Life. My first reading experience of hers was A Texas Kind of Love. However, A Colorful Life had more meaningful with life lessons intertwined. I totally understood why the book was titled A Colorful Life: Drawn in Broken Crayon.
I loved how passionate Daly (rhymes with Tally) was about creating her artwork. As a reader I would have loved to see all the sketches and collages she made. She came off as very talented. It was incredible that she worked on a single project for 14 hours. Loved how Meghann and Kashi were her muse and inspiration.
I loved how Kashi told Daly they would be destined to be together if they ran into each other three times. Most men do not do or say things like that this day in age.
My heart hurt for the pain Meghann had been going through at school and at home with her parents. However, through it all though she stayed strong and positive. I was glad she had Dally and Mrs. Dally to lean on for support and friendship.
The characters in this book I found to be very unique. Dally, Kashi (like the granola cereal), or Laine.
Some memorable lines that pulled on my heart strings were:
“Sometimes I wish I could go back to my childhood and start all over again…but then I’d be stuck here even longer.”
“Although I’ve never been the type to live in the moment, maybe I should consider making a change.”
I hope to read and review more of Melissa Storm’s books in the future.
Follow along with the life of Daly English, a talented artist, and her social work mother, Laine Daly, as they try to live together in a strained relationship after Daly's father died 8 years ago. Daly has issues opening up to people and loses a boyfriend because of it along with struggling with her art.
Along comes a handsome man named Kashi into her life, along with a young pregnant teenager, Meghann, that her mother is counseling. There is joy, tears, happiness, sorrow, excitement ... so many emotions as these four lives become intertwined.
You will see how all of them grow from knowing and loving each other.
I would love to tell you more, but I don't want to give away too much.

This book took some turns that I was not expecting at all. Have a tissue ready when reading this. Spoiler Alert: I was angry that the author killed Kashi, where was the happy-ever-after? But I kept on reading and the author didn’t disappoint. It wasn’t the ever-after I felt Daly should have, but in real life we don’t always get what we want. I could relate to Daly and Lanie on how to they dealt with their grief, To read about what Daly and her mother Laine had to overcome, the author did a wonderful job making you as a reader feel what they were feeling and to relate to them. A very heartfelt book.
I was gifted this book for a Candid review.
