Unfinished Symphony, by V.C. Andrews

As this is the 3rd book in the Logan series, I have been introduced to Melody Logan as the main character. Her family members and so called family members have had their tale told in prior books, so the impact of their relationships is not clearly understood, but regardless, her circle of friends and family have many dark secrets regarding blood relatives and fake relationships, incest, murder, ghosts in the closet and money.

Melody has just found out that her mother, Haille, may still be alive. Melody believed that her mother and stepfather died in a car accident. Cautiously hopeful, Melody heads to the west coast and Hollywood to find her mommy and some answers. Would love win over rejection and will Melody find peace?

Melody experiences all of the trappings of a Hollywood want-to-be-Star and is crushed by both the lifestyle and the rejection. Will her love for Cary call her back to the east coast no matter the trip west?

This story is a coming of age tale for Melody.

I have to say that I found very little horror in this reading, but based on the nature of her past works, I was always expecting to be startled. I also believe that present day society is so numb to blood and guts, that V. C. Andrews books are now rather mild.
