Unfinished Muse by R.L. Naquin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow! This book seamlessly rolled mythology, romance, and inspiration all into one story that had me running to my car to start (and finish) my next big project! Interested? You should be, because this book was fantastic!
Wynter (yeah, the name screams hippie parents) has just quit her job and dumped another boyfriend. She appears to be your typical "quitter" personality - anytime things look like they might force her to commit, she beats them to the punch. No roots, no baggage, and this seemed like her forever path until the weirdest things started happening. Her houseplant/lifemate starts a conversation with her for the first time ever. Also, she finds herself at an abandoned building, walking into a world filled with real-life mythical beings.
Turns out, the mystery father that her off-the-wall mother keeps telling tales about is an actual deity (or something). This fast-tracks her into the Mt. Olympus Employment Agency training program. Through some sort of twist of fate (ha), Wynter ends up becoming a very poorly trained Muse. Her clients are depending on her for inspiration and the motivation to complete their projects on-time.
I have to admit, I thought this would be all fluff and laughs, but there was truly some inspiration story jammed into this outrageous world. While watching Wynter struggle to keep her "clients" on track, I found myself smiling and rooting right along with her. It takes a lot from a book to really reach out and grab me, but this one did it. If you have even the slightest interest in a paranormal read, this one is guaranteed to entertain you (and might have you finishing a project of your own!).
