Melody Logan had only just found a safe harbor when a new storm set her adrift all over again....

Melody had always believed her mother, Haille, and dear stepdaddy had died in tragic accidents -- that's why she'd come to stay with her secretive Logan relatives on Cape Cod. But then a friend recognized Haille's picture in a catalog and kindled Melody's hopes. Maybe her mothe

A great ending to what I consider a 3 book series. This book picks up where Heartsong left off. Melody is off to LA to find her mother. Through many twists, turns and learning about the real-world, Melody gets the answers she's desperately looking for. They just might be not the ones she wants.

The character really develops into a brave young woman throughout the book, and she finds one secret after another. Just when you think you know all there is to know, 20 pages before the book ends comes a

Un troisième tome qui transporte Melody à Los Angeles... Je passe sur les passages avec Fanny (décidément je n'aime pas ce personnage) ... Donc Melody retrouve sa mère mais le moins que l'on puisse dire c'est que c'est décevant ... Mais on s'y attendait.

En revanche, j'ai été surprise par la mort de Jacob, même si je n'aimais pas trop ce personnage, j'ai été surprise qu'il disparaisse. Sur la suite, malheureusement, c'est pas mieux. Comme de juste, Melody cède à Cary (bon sang que je n'aime pas

I got this book from a friend who generally has a very good taste in books... it didn't quite carry through with this book unfortunately.

I really try not to write all negative reviews so this is not going to be long but the only good thing I can think of about this book is that it is short at 344 pages. I read the majority on 10 minute train journeys and because I couldn't stand the thought of reading this on a third day I read extra this evening.

Now, the reason I *may* be having issues with thi

Unfinished Symphony by V. C. Andrews is the third book of the Logan Family series focusing on Melody actually discovering who her real father is and tracking down her mother in Hollywood. More and more family secrets come to light as Melody continues to snoop around and ask lots of questions. This book has some humor, adventure and romance as her love for Cary grows. I liked being exposed to all kinds of lifestyles through Melody’s experiences of living with all different people in different pla ...more

Melody had always believed in her mother that her step-dad had died in a tragic accident.Thinking that she moved and went to live with some other secretive relatives.
Thinking that her mother had died in a tragic fire in California she wanted to keep in touch with her but lost contact because of desperate troubles. As she wanted to reunite with her mother chances of that were as small as a peace of paper.
Besides she also had a chance to live a pampered life in a Beverly Hills mansion. She then

Well...mmmm, what can I say? I enjoyed the book solely for the scenery and sub characters.
As for Melody? ya know the sweetest gal who would do just about anything for anyone? well I wanted to slap her an awful lot!
Nobody can be so naive and stupid that many hours in a day? As for her selflessness attributes? I couldnt find them? she just did what most of us half decent women would do If we had the mental and physical strength of a flea! and when a cheuffeur is sadly speaking of his deceased fa

I don't really love this series as much as the Landry Series and especially the Cutler series (I've only read those and this one, the Logan Series). I'd have to say that this one is by far the best book in this series (Logan). Maybe the next one wouldn't be as good, but the 5th book is always surprising if it's a VC Andrews creation. Looking forward to them anyway! It's a bummer I don't own these books yet!

UPDATE:
Okay, now that I've read the book description of the 4th book, I am beyond thrilled

THIS SERIES CLEARLY WAS MY FAVORITE BY FAR. I WAS REALLY THINKING THAT LAURA WAS ALIVE ALL OF THIS TIME IN THE MENTAL INSTITUTION. TO SEE JUST HOW FAR OLIVA WENT WAS DOWN RIGHT CRUEL. I FELT SHE HAD NO RIGHT TO TRY AND CONTROLL EVERYONES LIVES THE WAY SHE DID. AT THE END OF THIS BOOK I FELT LIKE IT HAD AN EARLY CONCLUSION OF HOW MELODY AND CARRIE WHERE GOING TO LIVE THERE LIVES. I FELT THAT THE "LOGAN"SERIES WAS BROUGHT TO AN EARLY END. BUT I GUESS IT MADE ROOM FOR "LAURAS" STORY AS WELL AS OLIV ...more

When I read these novels back in the day I would have given them 3-3.5 STARS and now would say about one Star


I started reading VC Andrews books in the 1991 and stopped about 2003.

I have read:
-Dollanganger Series
-Casteel Series
-Cutler Series
-Landry Series
-Logan Series
-Orphans Series
-Wildflowers Series
-Hudson Series
-Shooting Stars Series
-DeBeers Series
-Broken Wings Series

As a preteen reading these novels was a rebellion and the gothic theme also seemed cool. I stopped reading this author because

This is the only novel I read in this series. If this is supposed to be written for our era, there's things that I question. First, what seventeen year-old traipses across the U.S. by herself to find a mother who left her when she was very young and doesn't even know what type of lifestyle the mother now has. Then I question a senior in high school in this day and age, a very smart one at that, throwing away her future education to marry a man, a distant cousin, right after high school graduatio ...more

This was the first V.C. Andrews series I read before going back to read all the other ones, so this will always be my favorite series. I loved the central character, loved the story line, loved the location and setting. I loved everything about this book and the books in the series. The only problem I did have was that the step back covers of the book do not accurately portray Melody and the other characters as according to the descriptions in the text. Other than that, this series is close to m ...more

Heart Song was a bit plodding, but fortunately the action picks up in this book. Melody gets the answer to her long sought-after paternity after finding out that her mother isn't dead after all. This book isn't the best, but it's still pretty good at a solid 4/5 stars. Several deaths spot this book, but they feel rather convenient in the scheme of the plot, so this read is a bit light compared to previous series, and nowhere near as exciting as the Dollangangers, Casteels, or Cutlers. Still, thi ...more

It was a great ending to the all the answers I had before. Although there are 2 others in this series, the story that took place finally came to an end. The next two books are Laura's Diary and the background of the grandmother and why she became such a monster. Both which I am excited to find out. However, This book was really great, there were so many twists and turns and just when you think that happiness is about to happen the rug gets pulled out from under you once again. I am really excite ...more

Another trashy but oh-so-fun V.C. Andrews book.

I wanted to slap some sense into Melody throughout this entire book, though. (view spoiler)

The revelations in this book were nice and juicy, and I actually find Melody and Cary to be very cute together. However, I have a bad feeling that my opinion of Cary will change

Melody found out that her mother didn't really die, even though there was a body in her grave, and set out to find her. The mother didn't want anything to do with Melody or her past.
Melody lived with her overbearing and controlling grandmother, the matriarch of the whole family and there were alot of secrets. The past of the Logan family would soon be uncovered.
This was a wonderful read. There was love, deceit, distrust and hills to climb but also valleys to fall in.

Melody's mother is a selfish, childish BLEEP, after finding out the truth about everything that her mother did I would have disowned that woman and forget about her, how anyone can abandon their own child with strangers to pursue her own selfish desires is beyond me, WHOOOO, overall the book was good but geez it was still sick and cold what her mother did.

VC Andrews has always been a favorite of mine since my childhood days. I have read (and re-read) all of her books, and although I am much older now and find that some of her work is better than others, I still enjoy the twists and turns, strangeness and mystery that continues to captivate my interest. (even some of the ghostwriter's work)

When I see this book in mu bookshelf, I Always wonder how I can even finished reading it :D
I guess I didin't have anything to do back then.
Well, that's the only explanation...
Cliche and soap opera.
No wonderfully described character.
And why do I picked it up at the first place?
Well, the cover looks different
False hint :(

This was probably my favourite book of the series so far. It was nice to see Melody act in a responsible manner without putting herself in so many inherently dangerous situations with no consequences.

one of the best, most loved series/authors of all time. V.C. Andrews books are something so easily recognizable and new books continue to evolve to go with the times and bring in a whole new generation of loving readers

It was OK but not one of her best. Melody goes searching for her mother who she thought was dead but a picture in a magazine proves otherwise. Her dream comes true in that she finds her mother but she is nothing like her fantasies.

I was obsessed with the Logan series but I dont like the way it ended really. Also she endured so much sorrow i wanted to read on about her happiness after the storm & her and Cary... They should have had a wedding & a honeymoon, i think.

What a ride Melody goes on!! I enjoyed following it all...no to get my hands on the next book!
Though its book three of the series which follows Melody's search for the truth into who she is and whose blood actually flows in her veins, every turn is shocking, yet believable.
