SHATTERED: Logan Book 1
A car crash and a pink shoebox change Logan’s life forever. Then, her best friend is accused of murder.
In the first novel of Davisson’s thrilling, best-selling series, Logan loses her husband, her illusions, the company they built together, her music, and now, probably her job.
But when a young glassblower is brutally killed at the local arts festival and her good friend, Thomas Delgado, a Native American artist, is accused of the crime, Logan drops everything and comes to his defense.
It doesn’t help that Thomas is refusing to defend himself. As Logan struggles to maintain her still tenuous hold on her new life, she delves into the dangerous world of glassblowing in order to clear her friend’s name.
The deeper Logan digs, the more secrets she unearths, and the more unhinged the real killer becomes. Logan must find the truth before they kill again.

“Enjoyed it thoroughly. The plot was good, moved along well and I felt I knew the characters right away. That’s important to me. I like to visualize & understand the players. I’m reading the next book in the series, Forest Park, now. Nice to have a new author I enjoy. I read a lot and hate to run out of favorites!”
“Great book for your library or reading group. There is a great deal of subject matter that would make for great discussion.”
“A good mystery is always good news, and the hint of a good series even better! Moves deftly between description and dialogue…builds to a highly addictive page turner.”
“I’m absolutely delighted with Valerie Davisson’s first Logan McKenna mystery. It’s successfully met my three requirements for a well-written mystery: It drew me right into the story as an observer/recorder, living with the characters and participating in their lives. The characters and surroundings are well detailed, but the forward momentum continues, even when someone is sitting quietly and thinking. AND the villain’s identity is successfully hidden from me until the last possible moment. While not requirements, I always appreciate a satisfyingly positive resolution and good grammar. I encourage readers seeking a well-written mystery to choose Shattered. I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I have.”
“First book of a well-written series. The female protagonist is strong, smart and real, unlike one-note characters I’ve found in other books. Excited to read the next one! Grab this for a summer read or a weekend at home…”
