This was such a moving deeply true book. I really enjoy the characters and their struggles and I'm a sucker for a good dog character and I felt she handled that very well. Spoiler alert! I was sad that it seemed Natalie really had no chance with all that repeated early trauma. But we all get choices. With that kind of history Natalie's was understandable but she was still accountable for her choices. We don't get a pass on accountability because life was hard or even when it's downright tragic.

The premise of the book is intriguing and some of the plotting is good. If the main character didn't come off as totally stupid 3/4 of the time, I would have liked this book better. The author acts as though she's writing for a teacher in a class, and the more outlandish the description of something, the more the teacher likes it. Such as: "He had learned to meet anger and pain head on, like the rip-roaring dragons that they were, and when he held his ground they changed into whatever lived underneath." On the surface sounds very poetic, but what the hell does it mean?? Underneath what? His heart? His fear? Maybe some people love "deepness", and I do, too, but I don't love it when it's so deep that you have to stop the flow of the story and ask yourself if this sentence even makes sense. And then there was, "This morning Rocky prepared their food, the lubricant of all animals." OK... I get it, but it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to me, unless we're talking combustion engines, or something of that ilk. Here's a classic: "She moved her foot and a grain of sand exploded beneath the ball of her right foot." I get that she suddenly "came to", but this doesn't do it for me. Never mind that the repeating of "foot" is distracting. Oh, here's another one, describing her lover's arms: "She closed her eyes and tasted Hill, the creamy insides of his arms." Does that make you want to fall in love with Hill? No it makes you want to gag and ask the guy to use a good deodorant, because we're up in his armpits! I know she was meaning the feel of being in his arms, but I think she could have said it in a much better way. Using "thought of what it felt to be with" in that sentence instead of "tasted", maybe?? It goes on and on and I could go on and on, too, because these stupid sentences are all over this book. I found it very distracting, instead of enlightening. I like things described in something other than textbook form, but if you distract your reader too much, the effort is lost, in my opinion.

I read the first novel first having found it in a thrift store. It called to me. I loved that one "Lost and Found" so much that I wanted more so I looked the author up and found this one on kindle. Really enjoy her writing. It was a fun novel to read but not trashy or shallow.

Jacqueline Sheehan is amazing. After her previous book, Lost & Found, I thought about the characters for days, so I checked to see what else she had written, and found this book, which is essentially a sequel to Lost and Found. Finally, I could return to Peaks Island, Maine and all of my favorite characters as they move ahead in life. Rocky solves some mysteries and...well, I won't spoil it. If you read Lost and Found, or even if you haven't, this book can be red as a stand alone, as the author brings events up to date as things move along.

I must comment that her background as a psychologist is apparent here, as she describes anorexia, synesthesia, and other complex subjects in an artful fully human way. Give this author a chance and you won't regret it. Great on the kindle!

My sister left her copy behind of "Lost & Found" with me as we all enjoy stories with dogs. The first few pages had me questioning if this was a good choice as it begins with a death of a loved one. "Picture This" is the sequel. I can only say now that I could Not put these books down and went back to Amazon and ordered all of Ms. Sheehan's books! Her style of writing is easy reading and her characters take shape quickly and the depth of emotions felt from sadness to relief and happiness flows into an amazing story of a woman and an orphaned dog. I particularly enjoyed the dog's perception of events!

I bought this because I liked "Lost and Found" and wanted to see how the characters developed. Unfortunately, they didn't. I felt like the plot was so predictable I could have skipped half the book, there were no twists or turns or anything to keep my attention. I was also a little angry that we, as readers, were supposed to be so gullible as to believe Natalie's ruse. I actually thought, is Rocky this stupid or does the author feel we are? I would have to say to skip this book and save yourself the hassle of fighting your way through it.

I loved this sequel to Lost and Found and the continued story of characters I had met in the first book. Picture This had an exciting story line and the introduction of a complex new character. It was obviously well researched. I would love to see the author continue to write about Cooper and the people in his life.

I thought I would be reading a story about a hurting human and the dog that helped redeem her. Not so. The Lab on the cover (who mirrors my own - probably why I selected the book), is there, but hardly there. Never the less, I think Ms. Sheehan is a good writer - her description of Peak Island makes me want to visit and buy an old fixer-upper like her central character did. A good story, all-in-all.
