The Hawthorne Legacy (The Inheritance Games, 2)
The Inheritance Games ended with a bombshell, and now heiress Avery Grambs has to pick up the pieces and find the man who might hold the answers to all of her questions—including why Tobias Hawthorne left his entire fortune to Avery, a virtual stranger, rather than to his own daughters or grandsons.
Thanks to a DNA test, Avery knows that she’s not a Hawthorne by blood, but clues pile up hinting at a deeper connection to the family than she had ever imagined. As the mystery grows and the plot thickens, Grayson and Jameson, two of the enigmatic and magnetic Hawthorne grandsons, continue to pull Avery in different directions. And there are threats lurking around every corner, as adversaries emerge who will stop at nothing to see Avery out of the picture—by any means necessary.
With nonstop action, aspirational jet-setting, Knives Out-like family intrigue, swoonworthy romance, and billions of dollars hanging in the balance, The Hawthorne Legacy will thrill Jennifer Lynn Barnes fans and new readers alike.
The Hawthorne grandsons grew up on puzzles and riddles and Avery Kylie Grambs is “a very risky gamble” that Tobias Hawthorne has put on the gameboard. She has already helped Jameson and Grayson come to terms with deadly mistakes that nearly tore them apart. Now it is their turn to help Avery learn the mysteries of her past.
Avery is determined to play the game and not be played, while still coming to terms with her newfound inheritance of unfathomable wealth. Danger abounds as secrets are revealed. Can the boys stop seeing her as just a piece of the puzzle to be won or lost?
Avery, Jameson, and Grayson face dangers of the past, as they unlock secrets that shake Avery to her foundation.
