My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lies that Bind is the first book I have read by Valerie Davisson. It is book 6 in the Logan McKenna series, which I didn’t know until the end. While it can be read as a stand alone, you probably should read the series. I was really overwhelmed the first 1/4 of the book with all the characters. There is a lot going on, and so so many people. Once I pieced together who was who, and was related, it all started to click. Even still, there is a lot going on in this story, but it all comes together in the end. You just need to stick it out until the end to have the ahhh ha moment. I was impressed with the author’s writing style. She had 2 stories going, one from the past, and one current. It seemed 2 very different stories, but then it all came together. The story line is one of jealousy that leads to deadly rage more than once. I recommend this book, and look forward to reading more in the series.

Lies That Bind is a murder mystery that spans multiple generations. Set in a small town off the coast of Oregon, the story opens with the death of an heiress to the oldest and most prestigious hotel in the area. Follow Logan McKenna, a newcomer to Oregon, as she and her friends try to make sense of the heiress’s death, and Frankie Collins, the founder of The Collins Hotel and family fortune. I enjoyed following the dual narratives of Logan in the 21st century and Frankie’s story from the 1930’s, and I felt like the novel’s structure and concept is executed well enough to provide a good read. However, I preferred Frankie’s side of the story, and I found myself reading through Logan’s storyline just to get back to reading about the events of the past. I didn’t develop any particular attachment to Logan’s plot or her character. Overall, Lies That Bind is a good murder mystery that explores the themes of family, death and greed.

Having read the previous books in the ‘Logan McKenna Series’ and enjoyed them I was looking forward to this novel and was not disappointed. I personally think that the series has just got better and better. We are back with our heroine Logan McKenna, who along with Ben is buying a fixer-upper on the Oregon coast. Logan and her half-sister, Olivia who she has never met before investigate when Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Collins is found drowned in the pool of her family’s Depoe Bay hotel, ‘The Collins’. The police focus their investigation on Wade Ellis, Charlie’s fiancé who had both means and opportunity along with motive and no alibi. However, as Logan starts to dig she uncovers secrets and lies that bind the Collins and Ellis families together. Logan needs to uncover the truth before the murderer kills again. As usual I was hooked from page one by this page turner of a novel. The storyline flows well and the plot has plenty going on in it to keep the reader happily turning the pages. Logan is a great main character who really brings the story together and I liked the new addition of her half sister Olivia and the dynamic between the two of them bought another element to the story. The author has away of bringing both the characters and the setting alive through her detailed narrative which made me feel immersed in the story. Addressing the themes of mental illness gave more depth and realism to the story. I was gripped until the last page and I look forward to the next book in the series.

It still baffles me that I can be six books into a series and still just as invested as I was in book one. I really think that Valerie Davisson knocks it out of the park with the Logan McKenna series and book six, Lies That Bind, is no exception. I have enjoyed watching Logan as she navigates work and life and her overall character progression but what I really enjoy is the subject matter, mental illness, lies etc. woven in each storyline. Lies That Bind is a story that keeps you interested from start to finish. As I am sure I have mentioned in the past, the Logan McKenna series and Lies That Bind can be read as standalone books. I personally have read the series in order and prefer to know the tiny details or connections that may pop up along the way. Regardless, this is a great 4 star read I would definitely recommend.

Lies That Bind: A Logan McKenna Mystery #6 (Logan McKenna Series) by Valerie Davisson

Davisson has outdone herself once again. Every Logan McKenna novel gets more interesting as you read. Davisson knows what she’s doing when writing these books.

Logan McKenna is buying a vacation house. What she doesn’t expect is to be dragged into yet another investigation. Her half sister finds the dead body and now Logan wants to know more.

Logan knows she should stay out of it, but she can’t. When the owner of the house shows up then things start getting complicated. The quote I chose for Logan is: “That was nice of you, offering to help Wade like that, but don’t you have a job to get back tobin New York?”

Highly recommended for crime lovers!

This is the sixth book in the Logan Mckenna Series. I have enjoyed all the books in the series so far and this one is just as good. I love Logan’s character all she wants is a peaceful life but she kept finding herself in the middle of murder and mystery at every turn. These books keep you gripped and guessing at every turn.

Logan’s life is full of complications but when Logan and her half sister get caught up in a murder investigation they need to work together and sort through history to figure out who did it.

In the past there was a horrible murder that leaves two families to go different ways. When one member of the family turns up dead and murder is suspected the number 1 suspect is her fiance who is a member of the other family. Has conflicts in the past caused him to commit murder or was it just a tragic accident.

Logan needs to work through the ties in the past and present to get to the bottom of this mystery.

Another great story for this series! Logan is remodeling the fixer upper she and Ben have bought and she is set to meet her half sister! Then they of course get pulled into a murder case and it all takes off from there. As always these stories keep me glued to the pages to see where its going to go and I’m usually wrong! Great series and of course look forward to more from this author.

I loved that this book had us traveling back and forth in time. From the times of Prohibition to 2020, we’re thrown into a murder mystery that’s unlike any other. I love that the author’s personal settings happen to be thrown into these stories as well. Logan is also balancing a private life with her professional life which we know can be tough for her. This book is multilayered in numerous ways but the author definitely gets the reader to think about a lot while indulging in a murder mystery. These kinds of stories do wonders for my memory and for a new way of thinking.
