Four Stars

Forest Park is the second book in the Logan McKenna Mystery series by Valerie Davisson. This is a great series and I recommend you read the series in order because the first book is a really excellent read. That being said you could read this book as a standalone and will know what is going on. This story gripped me from the very beginning and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. The storyline is very detailed and the characters are well defined and relatable. The author deals with sensitive subject matter and does a good job with it. Thisis a great series that I highly recommend. I can’t wait to read the next book inthis series.

This is a much better story than that last one. I still struggled with too much descriptive narration. The story runs pretty slow in the beginning then really picked up during the last forty percent. The characters are good and I particularly enjoyed the part with the characters from Saigon. As well as GI Joes thoughts and struggles. I think they are my favorite characters in the story. I still struggled to connect with Logan. I think she is just so unassuming that’s it’s hard to think of her as a solver of mysteries. I think it was mentioned in here that she is just nosy. I would agree with that assessment. I did like her outlook on the school work.
Overall it’s a nice story.

In this second book following Logan, she is in the area when an explosion happens and of course wants to help.
I was hooked to the pages waiting for what was coming next and this didn’t disappoint. I’m not a huge fan of multi pov’s especially when they aren’t told who it is so that took some getting over for me but it didn’t take away from the story that much. I love the details, I feel everything come alive in my head. Not giving things away as I feel stories are best told where they belong, in the story.
I can’t wait to read the third book.

I really enjoyed reading Forest Park: A Logan McKenna Mystery book 2. Valerie Davisson has such attention to detail which makes this book enjoyable. This book Logan finds herself in Portland with new friends and an explosion happens. Logan wants to help with the investigation. I have to admit that I did not see that coming. Davisson wrote some big twists and turns that kept my attention. I thought I knew what I was going to happen and BAM there was a twist. I was going through everything with Logan. Will Logan be able to solve the mystery in time? The other characters make the story go forward. You will have to read the story to figure out what everyone goes through and what happened with the explosion.

Forest Park is the second book in The Logan McKenna Series by Valerie Davisson.
Even though this is only the second book in the series, our leading lady, Logan has been through quite a lot. This book sees her investigating another murder, this time with links to the Vietnam War. Logan will need to sort through all the secrets, half truths, drama, and history- to get to the bottom of it all. We also get a front row seat to her own life as she embraces her own new beginnings.
This is my favourite of the series so far.

Thank you, Valerie Davisson!

Davisson continues the Logan series with another fabulous detail packed story. I really appreciate the level of detail this author uses to describe her characters and the storyline progression. The imagery is so vibrant that I felt like I was walking with the characters through the story and was kept guessing as to what would happen next. I loved how the author drew me in and the adventure that unfolded. I look forward to seeing how the the series continues to develop!

Forest Park: A Logan McKenna Mystery by Valerie Davisson is the second book in the Logan McKenna series. This book was such a well written book that I cannot imagine anyone not being hooked! In this book the author has chosen to tackle some pretty sensitive topics and yet she does it with such ease and sympathy that it never feels too jarring.
The characters in the story were all so interesting, and I liked how it felt as if the author treated them all with the respect they seemed to deserve. I was a little intrigued by nearly all of them and thought they really combined together well.
The story itself was also really interesting. I liked the dual storyline that wove through the book, it added an extra depth to an already great book. I really enjoyed the first book but I have to say this one is definitely already my favourite of this series! I am looking forward to what else might be next.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Forest Park: A Logan McKenna Mystery Book 2 (The Logan McKenna Series) by Valerie Davisson is a Muder/Mystery story. I found it to be a little distracting as the story jumps back and forwards in time but also the narrative changes with different POV’s, which I love, but they are not clearly defined. There are a lot of different characters and it is hard to keep track of them all and I am not sure they all need to be part of the story. I also found it hard to connect with them. As with the first book the plot is intriguing, but the mystery was a little lacking. I found myself rereading parts thus not making the story flow seamlessly for me. I really found it hard to finish the story, but I pushed through.

Just because it didn’t hit its mark with me does not mean you should not at least give it a go.

3 stars.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Forest Park: A Logan McKenna Mystery Book 2 is the second book in the Logan McKenna Series by Valerie Davisson. This is an intense story with multiple points of view telling the same story. There is a lot going on, but Logan McKenna leads the story well. She is having to try to trust her gut concerning new friends and others, but it becomes difficult as everything unravels. I like that, this isn’t just another set cookie cutter mystery. The author delves into the character of Logan McKenna and leaves the reader wanting more. I will not give any clues to the plot because there is nothing worse than a plot being wrecked. I will leave it up to you to pick up and start a great series. Of course, I recommend book 1 first. I look forward to reading more from Valerie Davisson in the future.

Forest Park: A Logan McKenna Mystery # 2 (The Logan McKenna Series) by Valerie Davisson

Valerie has really outdone herself with the second book in the Logan McKenna Mystery Series. She has Logan at it once again with her own little solvable problems.I enjoyed the heck out of this book!

Logan, self proclaimed hero, is going to Portland to see a friend. There happens to be another crime she can try solving. She’s good at helping and sticking with her gut.

Has she finally moved on from her husband’s death? And his betrayal? Will she finally open up to Ben? The quote I choose for Logan is: “I want to make learning fun for kids, but more than that, I want to prepare them for the world they will inherit, which, as we know, is in so many ways a mess. I want to give them the tools to create a better world— to maybe fix some of the mistakes we made.”

I really enjoyed this book and I think anyone who is up for a good crime and romance will enjoy this.
