I adored this book! It was such a sweet romance, that I would say that it should be a must read for romance lovers. I laughed, I cried, I ached while reading The Picture! It's a sad and sweet book.
Regarding the plot:
I was hooked from the very first page of The Picture.
The story starts with a rock concert where the main female character Sophie is listening to song that means a lot to her and to the singer, Nicholas. Sophie has a purpose to meet Nicholas during the after party of the concert. She needs to deliver a picture from Emily to Nicholas. Sophie and Nicholas meet, but the circumstances change quickly because Sophie feels attracted to Nicholas and does not find a chance to do what she was asked until it's too late. Nicholas finds a picture of Emily and Sophie decides to leave Nicholas behind without explanations.
Nicholas and Sophie meet again and due to the snowstorm, Nicholas cannot travel back and stays with Sophie. The snowstorm forces both Sophie and Nicholas to open up their hearts and they learn a lot about each other and about their pasts. Step by step they grow closer to each other.
Emily is the person that binds Nicolas and Sophie together and the story is partially told through the flashbacks about Emily's role in Sophie's life. And I loved the way the story was told. The scenes shared between Emily and Sophie were heartbreaking and sweet.
Regarding the characters:
My favorite character was Emily! She was so sweet, so strong, so leveled. It was amazing how she could handle her sickness and how brave she was about dying. The relationship between Emily and Sophie was well-written and vital to the story. Stephanie Taylor did amazing work with Emily and her relationship to Sophie.Read more ›
But she also made a promise to Emily. A promise to deliver a picture to Nicholas, a disenchanted rock star struggling to make sense of Emily's death and deal with his own grief over the loss. She does deliver the picture, but not before she finds more than she bargained for in Nicholas's company. Nicholas is understandably upset about the photograph, and Sophie leaves, certain she'll never see him again. But she was wrong, and a snowstorm finds them snowed in at her apartment for several days.
Just when she starts to think love is possible, his track record with women and her hidden past threaten to destroy what might have been.
Warning: You're gonna cry. I teared up in three different parts and I can usually control my emotions like an ice queen. This story was amazing. I loved the characters and could feel Sophie's roller coaster of emotions throughout. Her love and grief, her confusion and her anger. She is the epitome of a woman trying to hide all her pain from the world around her, but finds it all spills over at the most inopportune moments.
Nicholas was a gentleman and not arrogant or possessing of a sense of entitlement. Nothing like what you'd expect a rock star to be.Read more ›
Nicholas is a rock star, who just doesn't have time for his daughter. At least, that's the way Sophie sees it. She despises the man without ever having laid eyes on him, because he's never been around for Emily, except for a few visits when she is in the end stages of her illness. Emily's dying wish, however, is for Sophie to take him "the picture of us," so she feels a responsibility to honour the little girl's request and ends up at the after party of one of his concerts. In her wallet, she carries a picture of Emily and her father together, though wondering why it was so important to Emily for her father to have the picture.
After finally meeting and talking to Nicholas, he gives the impression of having cared for his daughter very much, so Sophie is increasingly puzzled by his absence during her lifetime.Read more ›
