My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am a big fan of Valerie Davisson’s ‘Logan McKenna Mystery’ series and have enjoyed all four previous books in the series and this fifth instalment was the best one yet. Back with Logan McKenna, who now feels like an old friend and as usual she finds herself in the middle of a mystery, this time it’s two deaths, one real and one psychological. Logan is enjoying her first vacation in years and along with Ben and her family make the most of some summer fun on the Oregon coast. Logan and Ben even have tickets for an in-home classical music concert featuring visiting musicians from China. Shockingly Logan then finds herself inexorably dragged into a homicide investigation as a possible suspect. As if that wasn’t enough to cope with Logan is then forced to face a ghost from her past and has to make a personal decision that will affect everyone’s lives including her brother Rick’s. This latest novel featuring our independent and feisty heroine Logan manages to weave a number of themes including, “loss, healing, forgiveness, family, love, and community” and although all of Davisson’s well defined characters all seek a safe harbor, sadly not all of them will find one.
I was hooked from page one and gripped from start to finish whilst reading this crime mystery story. The storyline is fast paced and the plot is full of drama, suspense, mystery and crime and is full of twists and turns that kept me guessing until the very last page. I enjoy following Logan as she investigates the mystery and felt fully immersed in the story. The narrative flows well making this an enjoyable and engaging read and the characters all add something different to the overall storyline. I personally think this series has got better and better and I definitely recommend this book and the previous ones in the series.
