Overview

The poignant and unforgettable sequel to the beloved bestseller Lost & Found; a marvelous tale of life-altering surprises and unanticipated guests

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 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?

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Surrounded by her Peaks Island friends, widow Rocky Pelligrino's emotional journey continues in Sheehan's sequel to Lost & Found (2007). Rocky, a psychotherapist, has settled comfortably into a rental house on Peaks Island, off Portland, Maine, with her beloved black lab, Cooper. Her husband Bob's sudden death just 15 months earlier shook her entire world, but her stay on the island has given Rocky some much-needed time to adjust to and reflect on the changes that have occurred. Although she is working as a game warden and enjoys her new job, Rocky must face a difficult decision: Should she stay on the island or return to her counseling job at a university on the mainland? Rocky has forged close friendships with several of the locals in this special close-knit community, including Tess, an elderly physical therapist and rental property manager; her boss, Isaiah; and Melissa, a teenager who struggles with anorexia and is completely devoted to Cooper and Rocky. Still in the throes of trying to redefine her life, Rocky even has begun to take the first steps toward falling in love again with Hill, her archery instructor. Then two events occur that help Rocky decide. She buys an old house that she feels a strong connection to and makes plans to renovate, and she receives a phone call from Natalie, an 18-year-old girl who is searching for her biological father. In Natalie, Rocky discovers a troubled and secretive person, the product of an abusive foster care system. Rocky's empathetic nature and background as a therapist compel her to help Natalie, and she invites her to stay with her on the island while Natalie searches for a job. As her guest settles into the daily life on Peaks Island, Rocky is determined to heal Natalie's wounds as well as her own and to uncover the truth about her young visitor's origins. Sheehan uses her skills as both a psychologist and a writer to create a solid, insightful story that will leave fans eagerly awaiting another visit from the strong heroine, her dog and her friends.

    Loved this one. You want to wrap your arms around the character

    Loved this one. You want to wrap your arms around the characters when they are going through a rough patch and celebrate their good times with more friends and family. Heck, you want them to BE your friends and family. Although this book is a sequel to Lost & Found (which I have not read), Picture This works well as a stand-alone read. Moving to a small island off Maine's coast to grieve the death of her husband, Rocky goes from being a summer tourist to a full-time resident while contemplating the fact that her husband may've fathered a child prior to their marriage. The young woman who appears at Rocky's door with this news is just the thing to help Rocky get on with her life, a purpose she didn't realize she needed. But is the woman who she says she is? When Rocky's black lab, Cooper, doesn't get along with the woman, that was the sign for me because really, who doesn't like or (is liked by) labs? There is heartache, romance, joy, and melancholy galore plus glorious descriptions of the island's geography. Buy this book--you won't regret it.

    4.5 stars

    Better than the first novel in the series, Picture This takes over where Lost & Found left off. I was instantly drawn into the story line of this novel and found it hard to put down. Sheenhan has the same great foundation in this novel as she did in the first but I felt the pace was much quicker and the story much more rich. I love that there is a great story, but a sense of suspense as well. I highly recommend this novel and the previous novel, especially to those who have a love and appreciation for the relationship between a pet and its owner! A 4.5 star read!

    I loved this book as much as Lost & Found. I would not reccoment reading this book unless you've read Lost & Found first (or you'll be lost). It's very hard to put down once you start reading. Hope book #3 is in the works :)

    Check out the full review on Kritters Ramblings

    A widow who feels like she has lost everything when her husband passes away and an 18 year-old girl who is trying to become a woman even though she had very little guidance growing up in the foster care system are the two main characters in this book. BUT this book is full of side bar characters, chocked full to the point of almost confusing.
