Don't miss this New York Times bestselling "impossible to put down" (Buzzfeed) novel with deadly stakes, thrilling twists, and juicy secrets -- perfect for fans of One of Us is Lying and Knives Out.

Avery Grambs has a plan for a better future: survive high school, win a scholarship, and get out. But her fortunes change in an instant when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves Avery virtually his entire fortune. The catch? Avery has no idea why -- or even who Tobias Hawthorne is.

To receive her inheritance, Avery must move into sprawling, secret passage-filled Hawthorne House, where every room bears the old man's touch -- and his love of puzzles, riddles, and codes. Unfortunately for Avery, Hawthorne House is also occupied by the family that Tobias Hawthorne just dispossessed. This includes the four Hawthorne grandsons: dangerous, magnetic, brilliant boys who grew up with every expectation that one day, they would inherit billions. Heir apparent Grayson Hawthorne is convinced that Avery must be a conwoman, and he's determined to take her down. His brother, Jameson, views her as their grandfather's last hurrah: a twisted riddle, a puzzle to be solved. Caught in a world of wealth and privilege, with danger around every turn, Avery will have to play the game herself just to survive.

** Avery's story continues in The Hawthorne Legacy and The Final Gambit


The Inheritance Games series has been on my shelf for a while, and I knew it was one I wanted to wait tell all the books were out before I started it. If you like books with riddles, mystery, and all that leads to why you inherit a lot of money, this a book you will quite enjoy. Avery Grambs is a mystery to Hawthorne as she is a random person summoned to the reading of their grandfather’s will and, in the process of the task, finds out she inherits everything.
Grandfather liked puzzles and games so much that he trained his grandsons to figure them out, and Avery likes puzzles but has no idea why she is part of this game. Inheritance games are a delight to read, and more is to follow beyond this first book.
