The Inheritance Games – Published 2020

“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 con-woman, 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. ” – Goodreads

THOUGHTS

This was another of my 12 recommendations in 12 months choices, and I am so glad I finally picked it up!

This book is SO good. I read it as part of a buddy read and we were supposed to read half, discuss, and then finish it, but I accidentally read the whole thing in 24 hours and immediately added the second book to my cart.

While the story is good, the characters are great, the setting is unique, and the premise draws you in, what I really loved most was the quick wit of the characters. I love a sassy comeback, and these characters are really good at that.
