Book Synopsis

Avery's fortune, life, and loves are on the line in the game that everyone will be talking about.

To inherit billions, all Avery Kylie Grambs has to do is survive a few more weeks living in Hawthorne House. The paparazzi are dogging her every step. Financial pressures are building. Danger is a fact of life. And the only thing getting Avery through it all is the Hawthorne brothers. Her life is intertwined with theirs. She knows their secrets, and they know her.

But as the clock ticks down to the moment when Avery will become the richest teenager on the planet, trouble arrives in the form of a visitor who needs her help--and whose presence in Hawthorne House could change everything. It soon becomes clear that there is one last puzzle to solve, and Avery and the Hawthorne brothers are drawn into a dangerous game against an unknown and powerful player.

Secrets upon secrets. Riddles upon riddles. In this game, there are hearts and lives at stake--and there is nothing more Hawthorne than winning.

"Barnes is a master of puzzles and plot twists. The Inheritance Games was the most fun I've had all year."

--E. Lockhart, bestselling author of We Were Liars and Again Again

* Part The Westing Game, part We Were Liars, completely entertaining.--Kirkus, starred review

* This strong, Knives Out-esque series opener...provides ample enjoyment.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A thrilling blend of family secrets, illicit romance and high-stakes treasure hunt, set in the mysterious world of Texas billionaires. The nonstop twists kept me guessing until the very last page!"--Katharine McGee, New York Times bestselling author of American Royals

"Barnes's meticulously crafted novel is like the film Knives Out for the YA world, perfect for any reader seeking suspense, romance, and glamour.... Barnes crafts high-stakes tension, a swoony love triangle, and a large but memorable cast of characters. Fun and fast-paced, fans of Karen M. McManus's One of Us is Lying and Maureen Johnson's Truly Devious will find a new home at Hawthorne House."--SLJ

[A] well-characterized mystery that's packed to the brim with twists and tricks. Hand immediately to teen fans of Knives Out or readers who love Maureen Johnson's Truly Devious series.--Booklist

Impossible to put down.--Buzzfeed

Prickly, witty, and stubborn as a mule, Avery is an eminently likable protagonist, and her savvy ability to manage the obnoxiously privileged people she suddenly finds herself surrounded by is admirable, helped plenty by her quippy one-liners that level even the snobbiest among them.--BCCB

I read the first two books in three days. I'm not the fastest reader and I tore through this book like no other. I'm not big on booktok and reading a book because some "influencer" said so. This book series lives up to the hype. It's a great story and many twists and turns. There were many times in which I was BUG EYED because I couldn't believe what happened. These are spoilers but for the second book not the third. When Avery's plane blew up I was seething. Unexpected. Great book, highly recommend.
