The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Was wanting to feel something other than awful really so wrong? ‘Everyone’s a little wrong sometimes, Heiress”
Avery Grambs has had it pretty rough but when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves her his fortune, she can’t believe her good luck but what’s the catch? Besides not having a clue who Tobias is or why he’d even consider leaving his fortune to her, Avery finds out that she must move into the Hawthorne House. Ah, and herein lies the rub! Every room a puzzle and a riddle but there’s another catch, Tobias left behind four very smart and very unhappy grandsons, each with their own issue with Avery inheriting what they thought was their fortune. It’s not long before someone is trying to murder her but who?
This is the most fun I’ve had reading a mystery/thriller! I loved Avery, she’s the perfect character to take on the challenge of Hawthorne House and its inhabitants. The supporting characters are just as interesting and engaging and the plot is non-stop thrills spiced with secrets, puzzles (and I love puzzles), romance and riddles! I’m so happy this is a series, I'm already excited for the next book! Bring on the shenanigans!
Thank you to Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and Jennifer Lynn Barnes for providing me this book in exchange for my review!
