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?

This is an acceptable sequel to "Lost and Found," although not as good. This novel focuses Rocky's reaction to a possible "love child" of her deceased husband. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Annie Reader

Jacqueline, you are a great writer. What I can't understand, though, is why you feel the need to sprinkle the story with bad language. Read morePublished 3 months ago by gtimmons
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... Read morePublished 5 months ago by M. Coleman
