Book Review: The Picture by Stephanie Taylor

The Picture
By Stephanie Taylor

Blurb: 
Sophie lives her life as a hospice nurse running from her past and over-compensating for her sins. She wants nothing more than to help others the way someone once helped her. But she never expected to get so attached to one of her patients.

Nicholas is suddenly looking for more meaning in his life than money, fast women and flashing lights. Life as a rocker has left him empty. Only Emily filled the gaping hole in his heart and with her death, his soul is broken into pieces.

When two lives collide, Sophie and Nicholas know they'll never be the same. Together, they try to figure out a message Emily has left behind. Can they succeed before the realities of life tear them apart?

Viviana's Review:
This book came home with me from the RT Convention (May 2013). The cover was catching as it's different from the covers that are currently out there. Flip the book over and the blurb tugs at your heart. This book landed on my TBR Mountain (which of course you know its literally the size of a mountain so this wasn't going to land on the top of the list) and the "Giveaway Shelf". So when I grabbed it off the shelf for a giveaway I was holding on my FB Page (What? Did you miss it? Oh, sorry Love! No worries, more giveaways to come as well as here) I didn't think anything off it. Since I usually pose a question for people to comment so they are entered, I began to flip through the book to find something to ask. I landed on a page and began to read. Read some more. Then caught myself and flipped through the pages again and landed on another... Intriguing! After two more times of doing this, I decided 'I Must Read This Book'! I did! That very night!
While the blurb tells you the premise, it keeps a few things a mystery which make this a great read. In order to provide you with that same experience, I'm not telling! You'll thank me! The characters are great and their dynamic truly drives the story forward. It was refreshing to have a heroine not fall into the trend when a rock star is involved. They both have pasts that they are trying to learn and grow from.

This was a sweet, loving, emotional and caring story about learning from the past but being able to let it go and move on. The story hit close to home as I have experience something similar as the heroin and it is truly hard and heartbreaking.

Rating: 4 Stars - I Loved It!
