I thought this book was a very good book except it was kind of slow.

An author my mom loved and left me a couple in her library after she died. I've read a couple of Andrews' books that were pretty good, but did not enjoy this as much. A young girl trying to find the secrets of her family and who her father was. Most of the new family she didn't know about are not very friendly to her, but she finds some that give her good support and love.

Ką aš darau kai pavargstu skaityti VISKĄ? Kitaip sakant - ką aš darau kai mane pasiveja skaitymo blokas? Imuosi savo vadinamų "junk book" (kaip "junk food" - greitas maistas). Savo "junk books" vadinu paprasčiausius romanus, su daug dramos, daug "muilo", daug paslapčių ir kartais net absurdiškų netikėtumų. Būtent tokias knygas rašo V.C. Andrews. Tiksliau - rašė. Kažkada jau rašiau apie autorės fenomeną, o dabar trumpai pasikartosiu.

So far, this book is as good as "Melody." I can't even remember where one finished and this one began.

We pick up in the summer, Melody and Cary are out of school for the summer. Melody takes a job with artist Kenneth, who she believes may be her bio Dad. This book shows the growth of the character of Melody. She becomes very independent, headstrong and determined to find out all the secrets that her now deceased mother took to her grave. Who is her father? Througout the book there are hints of a

Kissing cousins. So old! I've heard this theme before. Ruby and Flowers in the Attic had a similar theme. However, those were much better than this series. The Flowers series seemed fresh, and the Ruby series was incredible. However, I could not see the characters in the Logan series. This was too generic, I couldn't understand how someone could fall in love with their own sister. Then, years later, after her death, fall in love with another blood relative. There are hundreds of kids at school o ...more

Heart Song by V. C. Andrews is the second book of the Melody series which I am enjoying. This second book is about Melody's search for her natural father, her romance with Cary, modeling for Kenneth and meeting her real grandmother that does not sit well with Olivia. Melody learns more family secrets and stands up to Olivia. It has a shocking ending that left me hanging, eager to read the next book of the series.

This series sort of reminds of Belva Plain's family sagas. There is a lot of intera
nothing happen!!! i don't even know how you can even call this a book! When i got done with the book i want to throw it in to a fire for wasting my time. My grandma insist the author is good but this was not a book worth even looking at.

Melody finds out she isn't totally related to her cousin and falls for him while she searches for her real father.

Alors, un tome qui a concrétisé toutes mes craintes... Évidemment, Melody a cédé et se retrouve avec Cary ( sérieux, pourquoi les héroïnes ne peuvent JAMAIS finir avec quelqu'un d'autre qu'une personne qui leur est apparenté ou leur amour d'enfance ? ). Autant dire que ce côté ne m'a pas plu. J'ai également été déçue par Olivia, qui, si elle était plus décente que la moyenne des grands mères version VC Andrews dans le premier tome, se transforme en véritable dictateur dans ce tome. Cependant, il ...more

This book really makes me think. It is a good back overall and can't wait to read the third book. The series is really good too. V.C. Andrews is an amazing author.

Melody is an amazing character that develops really well. With her wanting to find out her family and her family secrets is good to read. The anticipation to see what will be next, is good in this book. We get to see her relationship with Cary involve which I find really sweet. With Cary and Melody not actually being cousins, helps wit

It took awhile to really get into the story itself until I realized that a lot of V.C. Andrews novels always end with a twist and when I realized I wanted to finish it to see what the twist was, I was glad I did. I held my kindle until I finished the book and was glad I did!

Great story, but

This is a good story. It has a strong opening and a wonderful cliffhanger to get you lined up for the next book. The continuity of character development was great. The only problem I have is the editing. A lot of misspellings and a few grammatical errors. The editor of the digital versions need to go over them again.

A great book to follow behing Melody and further explain her ever secret past. I could not wait to find out what else was happening in her life. sometimes is was as if i was right there alongside her.

Melody’s quest to find her true father is a little contrived, and I’m not sure why Kenneth Childs had to get her to pose nude and there haven’t been too many leads to the family secrets everyone hunts about. A bit of a slow burner, this one.

It was good having some of the questions from the last book answered. The character development was great. It also has a strong opening and the book ends on a delightful cliffhanger.

In the second installment Melody learns a lot more about herself from a surprising source, she finds out she has a grandmother in a home but no one ever goes to see her as she is very confused and medicated but Melody sees there is a lot of truth in her ramblings and so begins the next part of Melody's search.
Along the way we see unexpected twists and turns in the lies her family have told her and she finds out shocking revelations that rock her world to the core.
How can she ever sift out the tr

This second book in the series brought me through more twists and turns than I thought possible. I am thrilled to have some of the questions answered from the last book, and happy to hear that Melody and Cary aren't actually really related because their love is adorable. However, I'm left with more questions now (and luckily 3 more books in the series) but, who is her real dad? and why is her uncle such a crabby patty? why do her "grandparents" always seem to only give her enough info to not tot ...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.

-Casteel Series
-Cutler Series
-Landry Series
-Logan Series
-Orphans Series
-Wildflowers Series
-Hudson Series
-Shooting Stars Series
-DeBeers Series

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

At times I found that this book dragged a bit. Some of that might be due to the fact that this was the seventh V.C Andrews' book that I have read this year. I think I may be V.C Andrews tuckered out for awhile. This one is slightly different in that most of the book took place a little further north than most of her books. The book picked up a bit by the ending so I am looking forward to reading the next installment sometime in 2017 (it won't be in January as I need a break from this author lol) ...more

I like books by Andrews (or in actuality, the family-employed writers that write in her name) because they're a nice break from the stuff that I normally read. It's like a mini-vacation for my brain because the writing is simple and the story is the same book to book to book, with only minor variation (like character names), so if you read it quickly or get distracted mid-paragraph, it's not the end of the world--you can easily pick up where you left off without having to re-read entire sections ...more
M.M. Strawberry Reviews
To me, Heart Song was a weak point in the Logan family series. There's nothing really deep or dark here, and the story pretty much plods on. There's some entertaining parts, and of course there is Melody versus Olivia, that is always fun to read about as Melody strives to discover her paternity and the revelations that follow her in her quest to discover this secret - and the surprise twist answer she gets. Overall a fairly entertaining if slow read. It picks up in the next book.
Sep 17, 2008 rated it liked it
It was a good, and predictable book, much like its predecessors. I can't say whether or not it improved, but it certainly left the "girlish" feel behind and began delving into the more 'fucked-up' way of life that VC Andrews crafts for us in many of her books. I found it fairly entertaining, but not challenging and, for the most part, predictable as all her books are. You're unable to help but become attached to characters, and learn to love and hate them all.

I didn't like "Melody" so much as I liked the sequel "Heart Song." There were a few little surprises in this book, compared to the last. I pretty much have a feeling who "Baby Daddy" is and it may be revealed in the next book. This one was more intense with feelings and that's what I liked about it.

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)

“Love is fragile at best and often a burden or something that blinds us. It's fodder for poets and song writers and they build it into something beyond human capacity. Falling in love means enrolling yourself in the school of disappointment. Being human means failing each other often, and no two people fail each other more than two people who pledge to do things for each other that they'll never do because they are just incapable of it...That's why art is enduring. The look of love or hope, or the look of compassion, bravery, whatever, is captured forever. We spend our lives trying to get someone to be as enduring as a painting or a sculpture and we can't because feelings crumble as quickly as the flesh.” 11 likes
