I wasn't sure what exactly I was expecting with this book, but it was a fun, fast-paced mystery with plot twists and tension. I loved the suspense, and I am so excited for the sequel!! ( )

This was a fun book to read. I know many have mentioned this story premise reminds them of the movie Knives Out. I agree on that vibe, but I believe this more so brings to mind the 1985 movie Clue due to the eccentric characters galore that is in this book.

I do love me some eccentric, bizarre elements and this book delivers. This was a very fast read due to the constant building of the story. There never was a dull moment and as a reader that favors mystery/suspense/puzzle books this checked all the boxes.

I already pre-ordered the sequel and recommend this book as a next read or a break from a long, serious and complex book. This gives you excitement, while also being very entertaining with the characters, writing and plot the author cleverly crafted. ( )

I love love love these type of mystery books where riddles are involved. When I heard about The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, I was instantly intrigued. I was not disappointed. In fact, The Inheritance Games reminded me a lot of The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin although it wasn't a clone of it, thankfully.

I felt like the plot was solid. Although it is highly improbable that a teenager would be heir to a will of a random stranger and have to solve riddles to find out why, it could still be possible. My interest was piqued, and I found The Inheritance Games to be quite the page turner. The chapters would usually end in a small cliffhanger causing me to want to learn more and begin reading from the next chapter. Before I knew it, I had finished the book quite quickly. It was interesting to see Avery, the main character, go from being very poor to the richest person in the world. I enjoyed finding out why Tobias Hawthorne left her everything. I kept guessing as to why, but my theories were quickly shot down when it became apparent I was wrong. Becoming a billionaire placed Avery's life in danger and even more so when Tobias' family discovered they weren't getting much from Tobias at the reading of the will. Not only did Avery have to try to find out why Tobias chose her for his sole heir, but she also had to try to stay alive! While there weren't any major plot twists in this book, there are quite a few small ones that will leave the reader guessing. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a major reveal as to why Avery was chosen as Tobias' heir. It was a little underwhelming and anti-climatic to discover why he had chose Avery. This book does end with a cliffhanger since it is going to be a series. However, the main questions I had within the first book in The Inheritance Games series were all answered.

I loved each and every character in The Inheritance Games with the exception of Avery's best friend Max. Don't get me wrong, each character felt realistic and fleshed out enough, but Max was just annoying. Max has very strict parents, and Avery's only interactions with Max are through phone calls and texts. However, the way Max spoke was what was annoying. She didn't swear, so she'd use non-swear words for swear words. However, every other word was a would be swear word. I am not exaggerating. I don't think I've ever met a teen where they would swear that much or use other words in place of swear words that often. It just got annoying quickly, and I found myself dreading whenever Max was featured. I did love all the other characters though. I loved Avery and her thirst for knowledge. Avery was a very smart girl with a good head on her shoulders. I admired the way she could quickly work out any puzzle or riddle. I liked reading about her thought process towards figuring something out. I felt like Avery was also very selfless. Jameson, one of the Hawthorne brothers, was another character I really loved. His smarts for figuring out riddles and puzzles were also admirable. Grayson, another Hawthorne brother, was a bit of a wild horse. I never knew if I could trust him or not. (Although I didn't really know if I could trust anyone while reading The Inheritance Games. I kept trying to figure out if there were any ulterior motives at play.) Grayson's wanting to help out people whether it was Avery or his community through the Hawthorne Foundation was commendable. Nash, the oldest Hawthorne brother, was so stereotypically Texan that it made me laugh (as I am from Texas), but I loved it! Nash's laid back attitude was refreshing. Alexander, the youngest Hawthorne brother, wasn't featured as much for me to fully form an opinion, but I liked what I read about him. Avery's sister Libby had awesome dress sense, and I did love how she looked out for her sister for the most part. Figuring out Emily's role in all this was interesting. I would have liked to see more backstory about Emily and Rebecca (the hired helps daughters) though. They both had the potential to really flesh the story out more.

Trigger warnings for The Inheritance Games include some violence, some gun violence, attempted murder, and death.

Overall, The Inheritance Games is a quick paced read full of mystery and intrigue that will leave its readers not wanting to put it down. I would definitely recommend The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes to those aged 14+ who love a fast paced mystery that will leave them guessing throughout the book. I can not wait for the next book in the series! ( )

High school student Avery Grambs has an admittedly poor life - her mom is dead, her dad is absent at best, and she alternates living with her sister and her deadbeat, abusive boyfriend or sleeping in a car. She just wants to graduate and get out. So when she is summoned to Texas when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies, she accepts the free vacation with no idea what awaits her.

During the reading of the will, she is stunned when Hawthorne, a man she doesn’t know, has left her virtually all of his estate. To receive the inheritance, Avery must live in the Hawthorne House, which is full of secret passages, riddles, and puzzles, for a year. The house is also occupied by Hawthorne’s four grandsons who expected the entire inheritance. The brothers alternate between loving and hating Avery, thinking she’s a conwoman, and finally wanting her help to solve their grandfather’s last riddle. Who is Avery? Did she know Tobias? Will she survive the entire year in a house full of people who think they’re the rightful heirs?

This was a fun book that kept me in suspense through the very last sentence. I am usually pretty good at predicting twists and turns, but this one had me stumped. It was a fun mystery and I’ll be picking up the sequel as well. ( )

Avery is scrapping just to get by. She's smart and determined to have a future. After her mom's death she's been living with her half sister, trying to work, and trying to finish high school. When someone shows up demanding she goes to Texas for the reading of the will, her life suddenly, completely changes! A rich old man she's never met has included her in his will and suddenly she finds herself in a mansion full of hostility, intrigue, and puzzles to solve. Page turner. Comes to some conclusions before dropping what will surely be a sequel. ( )
