Very enjoyable read for a quiet Saturday afternoon. Love Cooper the black lab! ( )

PICTURE THIS brings back Rocky Pelligrino and her Peak’s Island community first met in Sheehan’s bestseller, LOST AND FOUND. The author’s fascination with using psychology to develop strong and complicated characters is back too, and this is a page-turner of a story. Rocky is contacted by Natalie, just out of foster care and convinced she’s the unacknowledged daughter of Rocky’s late husband, Bob. Or is she? Sheehan’s fourth novel is both an exciting read and a profound exploration of the damage done to childhood, the nature of evil, and the difficulty of knowing what is true. ( )

Cooper was my favorite part of this book. And Rockys pseudo stepdaughter who along with her brainchild boyfriend kidnapped one of Rockys neighbors grandchildren. Rocky was boring and stodgy and I wont be reading Jacqueline Sheehan again soon.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Jacqueline Sheehan is known for her lovely prose, and for creating characters you fall in love with- so it was wonderful that she decided to write a sequel to 'Lost & Found'. For the most part this was a successful follow-up... it was great to see Rocky again, and to read Sheehan's eligant writing style... but sometimes it seemed like Sheehan was trying to cram a little too much into this novel. If you LOVED 'Lost & Found'- check this one out... If you simply liked 'Lost & Found'- you might want to skip this one.

This touching book reminds us all that we should love the ones we are with, but you never know what secrets that may be keeping.

After Rocky's husband, Bob, passes away, a young woman claims that Bob is her father. Should Rocky trust the girl and welcome her into her life? Will it change how she feels about her deceased husband if he kept this child a secret all those years?

With a strong voice and descriptive writing, Sheehan really brings her characters to life. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062008129, Paperback)

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?
