Melissa's Review:

Wynter Greene is facing some big changes in her life all at once. She quits her job at a call center and dumps her boyfriend all in one day. When she goes home and drinks a bit of wine she starts to hear her house plant, Phyllis, talking to her. After a day or two, she listens to her plant and goes into Mt. Olympus Employment Agency to get a job. This is where she finds out she's a descendant of a god, that gods are real, and there are other people just like her. The others that are joining her in orientation all have to face tests to place them in their appropriate jobs. Wynter is placed in the Muse department and her job is to inspire people.

With little to no training Wynter has to meet the deadline for her three charges or risk being transferred to another department. Her charges are interesting, we have toothpick art, scrapbooking, and urban renewal. I'm not sure about yall, but I know I could all use a little bit of inspiration when doing something artistic. The concept of Mt. Olympus Employment Agency was interesting and definitely not something I've seen before. We don't get much face time with the gods, but I think that will change a bit in the next book. Unfinished Muse is a great start to a new series. I suggest this book if you're looking for a unique new series with mythology.

  3. HA! Would Phyllis happen to be an orchid? I ask because a few years back a couple of friends and I went to an orchid festival where you get to learn about orchids and take one home. Long story short we named our orchids-and my friend named her's Phyllis! That alone has me intrigued in this book. Is that weird? I want to read a book because of the plant? Plus, you did give it 4 1/2 stars. So that's saying something as well. :P
