Publisher Description

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.

funny fun fun!!!🥳🤩 ,

Sooo good!!

I absolutely LOVED this book! I wrote a song I love it so much.

Hawthorne song:

(Verse 1)

Hawthorne-born or Hawthorne-made,
There’s always something to be played,
In Hawthorne in house there is,
Something that is only his,
Tobias Hawthorne had something hidden in his sleeve,
All the Hawthorne’s wish Avery would just up and leave,

(Chorus)

The Hawthorne’s are dangerous,
The Hawthorne’s are magnetic,
You cannot trust them no way,
If you do you will pay,
Hawthorne’s destroy everything that they touch,
Avery thinks this is all too much,

(Verse 2)

Nash is a playa, he’ll make you wanna say ya,

What money can’t buy him, those eyes probably do, watch out for Grayson, he’ll Bribe or threaten you,

Jameson has hunger, oh what will quench his thirst? game, puzzle, or riddle, he’ll always come in first,

Xander is dangerously smart, he’ll show you the Rube Goldberg art.


(Chorus)

The Hawthorne’s are dangerous,
The Hawthorne’s are magnetic,
You cannot trust them no way,
If you do you will pay,
Hawthorne’s destroy everything that they touch,
Avery thinks this is all too much.

(Bridge)

Danger around every corner,
a puzzle or riddle that they have to solve,
You don’t know who is your friend or foe,
Don’t trust anyone, and remember this:

(Chorus)

The Hawthorne’s are dangerous,
The Hawthorne’s are magnetic,
You cannot trust them no way,
If you do you will pay,
Hawthorne’s destroy everything that they touch,
Avery thinks this is all too much.

Definitely recommend this book! Jennifer Lynn Barnes is my FAVORITE author!!!

Clever

Complex and well-braided plot, girlish sensibilities, and too many Da Vinci Code goofy clues. I didn’t hate the book.
