Description

Jacqueline Sheehan made serious waves with her much beloved runaway bestseller, Lost and Found. Now she treats readers to a sequel, Picture This—a story of rebirth and personal redemption that is as moving, funny, and heart-soaring as its predecessor.

Peaks Island, Maine vibrates with its own special magic, a unique flow to life that knits together the small community that calls it home. The people, the animals, and even the houses have a charm and personality all their own. Just ask Rocky Pelligrino. Devastated by her husband Bob’s sudden death, she found hope thanks to a relentlessly loyal black Lab named Cooper. Warm friends and a new job—as the island’s Animal Control Warden—have helped Rocky chart a course toward a promising future. She’s even ready to try at love again with Hill, the gentle and patient archery instructor. And there is an old house haunted by lost love and forgotten secrets that speaks to her soul.

But a phone call from a troubled young woman looking for her biological father shakes Rocky’s newfound joy. Could this young girl hold a tendril of the man who was the love of her life? Or could the girl’s appearance throw Rocky’s world into chaos . . . and shatter her heart again?

    Great book. Read the first book and had to read the last. Couldn’t put it down. The characters are well written especially Cooper. Never thought about things from a dogs view but it really makes you think. I have a 110 pound black lab which I found as a puppy and he is so like Cooper. Hated for these two books to end.

    Took me a while to get through it. Plodding in some areas but sweet and tender in others. I'm not a huge fan of humanizing animals in literature, I think it takes away from the reality of the animal. Don't get me wrong, dogs in particular are brilliant in their own way but spelling it out for the reader with human cognition just falls flat. Showing works better and for those people who know and understand canines, it would have been very clear where the dog's loyalties and actions were going.
  • Sequel that doesn't disappoint

    Picture This was definitely not a disappointment after Lost & Found. Just as amazing as the first, if not even better. Great author. Will definitely be reading more from her.
