Publisher's Summary

Intrigue, riches, and romance abound in this thrilling sequel to the New York Times best-selling The Inheritance Games.

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, swoon-worthy romance, and billions of dollars hanging in the balance, The Hawthorne Legacy will thrill Jennifer Lynn Barnes fans and new listeners alike.

I was here for the ride!

Fantastic follow up to the first book. I forgot how much I really liked the first book until I re-listened to it prior to this books release. LOVED IT! The pace of it is fast and wonderful, I love the complicated nature of the family, and loved hearing everything unfold. Well done!

A fantastic second book in the trilogy!!!

This series is so well written! It grabs you from the beginning of book one, and when that book ends you need book two immediately! Book two also grabs you right away and keeps your attention until the end, when you are dying for book three!!!
The plot flows beautifully with the mystery, relationships and suddenly growing up in the line light! There are no slow moments in the story at all! The characters are so amazing!! They are well rounded, in depth characters that you love to love and love to hate!! They are young adults living in a very wealthy world, with a large estate with tunnels, mazes, secret passageways, walled off secret rooms and lots of clues and puzzles to solve!!! It’s such an intriguing game!!!

The narrator is fantastic at bringing the author’s story to life!!

Would rather read than listen to it with this narrator

The narration could’ve been a lot better. It was a little monotone and took away from the story a little bit so I switched to reading it on my kindle and it was so much better.

Not Like The First Novel

This follow up lacks all the charm and intrigue of the first book in the series. The Knives Out-esquian mystery dissolves into a teen angst romance novel and it's just not for me. If you enjoy the CW this book might be for you.

Amazing

Keeps you guessing and so hard to push stop and do anything else! Once you start this book you will want to listen straight through to the end! Love it!!

Great Story

The mystery and the puzzles continue. These are too smart, I don't think I could get any of these clues. Maybe that's why it's so interesting to me. I'm really interested to find out if Avery's mother did change her name from Kayla. I have to listen to the last audio in this series. I'm really liking this series so far.

Great 2nd in series

The whole series is addictive, this second one did not disappoint! It’s a great easy listen or read; Everyone I’ve recommended it has loved it as well! I was so happy the 3rd came out as I was finishing this one!

Good book

Good follow up to the previous book. I feel it's a good completion to the series but I'm not sure what the 3rd book is supposed to pick up on. It was very picked up when the second half of the book was going, I really liked the later high intensity to the risk and mystery.
