LOST & FOUND and PICTURE THIS!

Congrats to E.Browning!
You have won this set of books!
Please email your full name and address along with the name of book you won to me at:
stephanieelliot@gmail.com




It’s Saturday and as a special treat, we’ve got TWO books to offer you today! Lost & Found and Picture This by Jacqueline Sheehan. Picture This just came out and is the follow-up to Lost & Found. One winner will receive BOTH of these books. Read on to find out about these best-selling books that are especially great for those who love to curl up and read with your four-legged pals!

A poignant and unforgettable tale of love, loss, and moving on . . . with the help of one not-so-little dog.

Rocky's husband Bob was just forty-two when she discovered him lying cold and lifeless on the bathroom floor . . . and Rocky's world changed forever. Quitting her job, chopping off all her hair, she leaves Massachusetts—reinventing her past and taking a job as Animal Control Warden on Peak's Island, a tiny speck off the coast of Maine and a million miles away from everything she's lost. She leaves her career as a psychologist behind, only to find friendship with a woman whose brain misfires in the most wonderful way and a young girl who is trying to disappear. Rocky, a quirky and fallible character, discovers the healing process to be agonizingly slow.

But then she meets Lloyd.

A large black Labrador retriever, Lloyd enters Rocky's world with a primitive arrow sticking out of his shoulder. And so begins a remarkable friendship between a wounded woman and a wounded, lovable beast. As the unraveling mystery of Lloyd's accident and missing owner leads Rocky to an archery instructor who draws her in even as she finds every reason to mistrust him, she discovers the life-altering revelation that grief can be transformed . . . and joy does exist in unexpected places.

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?

I would hate to lose my engagement ring or my wedding band. I am always worried on cold days when they feel a little bit looser than normal that I'll have one slip off and it will be gone forever.

Ill be honest my dog.. I have a bloodhound named Hops, we let him loose in the woods on a walk one day and he was gone for 2 hours.. he usually stayed with us, but ran on.. that nose can smell up to 6 miles away.. I was devistated, I literally fell to my knees in the middle of the woods and sobbed thinking he was gone forever. He truly is part of our life, and I hate to think he wont be in it one day!

Kristin said...

I would hate to lose my grandmother's wedding band. I wear it with my engagement and wedding rings closest to my palm. The other two rings are replaceable but this piece of my grandparents is irreplaceable especially since they are both dead.

Jessica said...

I already won these books from a different website but I still want to be entered into the contest for all of the books! Someone else should win these amazing books!

I couldn't bear to lose my dog, Haley. I know it will happen someday, especially because she has cirrhosis of the liver but I try not to think about it.

Thanks!

My Swiss Army Watch that my now husband gave me. When he gave it to me, he said it will last a lifetime. And I thought diamonds are forever you fool. The diamond eventually came, and 12 years later, I'm still wearing the watch every day.

Bridget O'Neill said...

Obviously my wedding ring, but other than that, my wedding album or the negatives of my wedding pictures. I still haven't converted them to digital, so they are the only copies I have!

A note that my mom sent me about 10 yrs ago. I carry it in my wallet all the time.

equinn726 said...

Well, I lost my wedding rings (as in gone forever) and it was one of the worst experiences I ever went through. Now, an object that I would never want to lose would a small pair of earrings that my husband gave to me the year before we got engaged.

Juliet Farmer said...

i would hate to lose my wedding photos.

I would hate to lose my wedding or engagement ring. I have an obsessive compulsive habit of twirling them around on my finger and one is always flying off. Sometimes I catch myself starting to do it with my hand out the window while driving and I'd hate to drop one then!

My wedding ring--Considering my husband already lost his within 2 years of us being married!

My laptop, because I'm not the greatest at backing up things.

Leslie said...

My phone...I would probably never be on time again as it has all of the appointments for our family. LeslieGC

Kristi said...

My wedding rings. I lost my wedding band during a move once and was absolutely devastated. My husband kept telling me that it would be easy to replace, but I just wanted to wear the same one he put on my finger on our wedding day. Then a couple of weeks after our move, I found it in one of our boxes!

There really isn't anything I couldn't live without but I guess if I had to choose I would say my laptop. I recently moved across country and it's really the only way I keep in touch with my friends and family back home. I mean I still can by phone but as you know facebook has taken over the world. :)

My engagement and wedding rings. I don't always wear them, but that's because I am so afraid that they'll fall off somewhere so I often just leave them at home.

It would have to be my engagement & wedding rings. They mean a lot to me.

My gold necklace. I think it holds some importance to me because it my one piece of jewelery that I bought myself that has withstood time and my ex. Plus the fact that it's still very stylish and I wear it all the time.
