Very enjoyable novel. Isabel Wolff puts a note of realism into her characters and the smaller side stories surrounding the "sitters" or people getting portraits painted were heartwarming and added depth to story.

I read "Vintage Affair"first from the same author, and the 2 books are very similar in plot. After I got to the middle of "The Very Picture... "I almost gave up, as everything seemed very predictable, but if you are reading this author for the first time, you probably will enjoy. I was expecting more, so got a bit disappointed.

A nice story with likeable characters that was written in a conversational way. The ending was very transparent but I enjoyed it anyway.

This novel is a quick, light read with a happy ending for all, but it is engaging all the way through. It has various personality traits that you will recognize or have encountered in people you know. Highly readable and entertaining.
