Picture This: A Novel by Jacqueline Sheehan

Jacqueline Sheehan made serious waves with her much beloved runaway bestseller, Lost and Found (“The best book I’ve read in a long time” —Susan Elizabeth Phillips). 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. Whip-smart contemporary women’s fiction with heart and soul, in Picture This, Rocky Pelligrino is back on Peaks Island off the coast of Maine, along with Cooper the dog, the beautiful black Labrador retriever who gave her a new “leash” on life. But this time a new wrinkle warps the fabric of her world when a young girl shows up on Rocky’s doorstep claiming to be the long-lost daughter of her late husband.

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.

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!

A great story that happen to include a dog. The main character was very real and with a twisting plot. looking forward to reading the sequel.

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 :)

I have tried to read this book many times, but just can not seem to stay interested in it. I loved the first one and I am a fan of almost any book with a dog on the cover. In my personal opinion, this story is slow moving and a bit on the boring side. At this point I can not see myself finishing the book.

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.
