This story is still based on the MC's Philip and Jeff. Even though Emily is shown on the cover and plays a major role, she is not really a MC in that there are no f/m sex scenes. The sex is kept to the males and it is hot! The book does cover incest and pedophilia, however, it does not go into describing specifics but rather the results of. Very tough subjects to write about without being offensive but I thought the author did it very well. The characters are so engaging I found myself completely enchanted by them. Sometimes they are too good and way more forgiving than I would be but that's what makes it interesting.

The subject matter of A Portrait of Emily is no laughing matter. Child abuse is something that all should find abhorrent - and so, it was with some trepidation that I began to read J P Bowie's sequel to A Portrait of Phillip, a novel I enjoyed very much. Happily, I can tell you that I was not disappointed in this second 'Portrait'. Everyone will cheer when her abusive father turns up dead - but will be appalled at her mother's reaction. When Emily is accused of the murder, her fiance, Jerry, stands by her, then it's Peter and Jeff to the rescue again. Like I said, the subject matter is dark and the subsequences of child abuse in adult hood are carefully and sometimes painfully detailed. Yet, Bowie's light style and sense of humor manage to cast a ray of hope on the proceedings amd make you long for a happy ending for the young lovers. It's also nice to see that Peter and Jeff's relationship has blossomed into a strong commitment. I was sorry to see Andrew and David, their two loyal friends, depart for New York. I hope that's not the end of them! I shall look forward to reading the third Portrait - which JPBowie promises will be out soon!

J.P. Bowie has done it again with his wonderful sequel to 'A Portrait of Phillip.' 'A Portrait of Emily' does a fine job of taking us along for the ride in the lives of Peter and Jeff while adding several new and interesting characters. I laughed, I cried through the elements of humor, incest, murder and acceptance. I can't wait for 'A Portrait of Andrew' to see what happens next. Kudos to the author!
