Meet Logan McKenna...fiercely loyal, and impossibly inquisitive.

In Shattered, the first book in the original mystery series and stunning fiction debut with which Valerie Davisson lets us crave for more, Logan McKenna loses her husband, her illusions, the company they built together, her music, and now, probably her job. But that won't stop her from digging into a murder investigation that keeps Southern California's tight-knit artist community on its toes and law enforcement cluelessly guessing.
At loose ends, and running out of money after buying a fixer upper on the coast, she decides to help out her best friend from high school, Thomas, a Native American artist, and his wife Lisa at their booth at the Otter Arts Festival, in the idyllic coastal town of Jasper, where she and her police officer brother Rick grew up. When one of the talented, young artists is found gruesomely murdered at the festival, Logan is faced with the reality that her best friend not only lied to her, but may be guilty of murder. It's up to her to find out what really happened that night, before the murderer kills again.
If you enjoy listening to Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon, James Patterson's Murder Club, J. A. Jance's Joanna Brady, or more general: a mystery novel with a strong female character, you will quickly fall in love with Valerie Davisson's Logan McKenna - guaranteed!
