The series that began with The Deceivers continues in Scammed, the second twist-filled installment from Kristen Simmons, author of Article 5 and The Glass Arrow.
The stakes are higher. The cons are riskier. And nothing is what you think it is.
Brynn Hilder is living a life she never dreamed possible: She lives in a mansion, getting a top-rate education at Vale Hall. She has friends and an almost-boyfriend. Anything she wants, she can have.
The only catch? To stay in this life, she has to help the director of Vale Hall take down the bad guys of Sikawa City by collecting secrets and running cons.
Getting everything she wants and fighting evil doesn’t seem like such a bad deal. The thing is, she’s not so convinced anymore that Dr. Odin is really going after bad people after all. And the friends and almost-boyfriend that have made her life so different are all liars and con artists—so can she trust that any of it is real?


Scammed is the second book in the Vale Hall series. Vale Hall is a school for con artists who are supposedly helping Dr. O, the director, to root out evil in the world. Brynn, who we met in book one, has discovered that life at Vale Hall is not all rainbows and sunshine, and there are some profoundly dark rooted secrets that she is determined to unravel and bring out into the light. Grayson, who left Brynn on the side of the road in book one, is now living at Vale Hall under Dr. O’s protection while his father is under investigation. Brynn is tasked yet again with finding out some dark secret from the senator’s past that she thinks will help Dr. O get justice for his sister and hopefully keep Grayson from going to jail. By the end of the book, a dangerous plot is developing for what I believe will be a specular third book in this high stakes con artist game.

Grayson is back and living at vale hall now what. Check out my review of Scammed book two in the Vale Hall series by @Kris10writes and be ready for Payback out in Februrary of 2021. Click To Tweet
