Picture This by Jacqueline Sheehan....Review and Give Away!
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?
First of all, I am a Mainer so I was delighted to see this book set on Peaks Island. I have been to Peaks many times (I was just on a neighboring island on Saturday!) and I was struck by how well Sheehan described it. She uses language that brings you there and actually brings to life the actual Peaks Island. Well done! Now the story is equally as compelling with love, mystery and an adorable dog. How can you go wrong?? This is a super summer time read set on an island. Bring this our out on the patio this summer and sail away on the ferry to a summery mystery. Thumbs up Jacqueline Sheehan!
