The book grabbed my attention from the first page itself and I was hooked to it like anything till the last page. The strange thing here is the book has 91 chapters. Unbelievable! But it's ok as each chapter is of three or four pages only. The characters were very, very interesting and mysterious especially the Hawthorne brothers. Avery made a good protogoanist for this book. The story went well and there were some secrets that were revealed here. This book is more like suspense and secrets and lies more than the mystery and thrills.
You may find the book to be little incomplete and pieces-pieces type but don't get too frustrated about it because I hope the second book will tie it all up.
If you want a mix of YA and puzzles/mystery, this book is for you.

Was it a very enjoyable quick read, with a good pace throughout and good array of characters? Indeed it was.
I usually, at one point or another when reading a book, get frustrated with the heroine. However, in the case of Avery, I actually really enjoyed her story and character. She wasn’t perfect, but she was logical and I could relate to her way of thinking. Makes a nice change!
I’m not going into too much spoiler type comments, but I would happily recommend this as a good Saturday night read. I read it in less than a day, and that was around work, so I’m sure you’ll whizz through it in no time!
I’ll finish by saying that I’m looking forward to seeing where her relationship with all the family members go in the sequel.

I will start by saying that, when this book was released, I had zero interest in reading it. Over time, I have seen so many people reading and reviewing this series over on Goodreads, that my mind was changed!
4.5 stars, rounded up.
This was a really quick read! I was engaged immediately and the short chapters made it very readable. Having said that, the length of the chapters (or lack thereof) was rather jarring to start with, and took some getting used to. The reason I rated this 4.5 stars (as opposed to 5) was due to the predictability of the plot. I didn't guess everything per se, but when certain characters emerged, I gathered that they would be important to the plot in some integral way.
The characters were fantastic, especially the four grandsons.
"They were a twisted, broken mess before you got here, and they'll be a twisted, broken mess once you're gone."
This book had the potential to be a character driven book on the strength of those four alone. However, I am very glad that it was not, and that there was a plot. I feel we have only scratched the surface of the Hawthorne brothers, and cannot wait to find out more as the series progresses.
I'm torn as to whether to read The Hawthorne Legacy #2 yet, or whether to wait, as the third (and final) book, The Final Gambit, is not due to be released until August 2022.
Mystery, intrigue, angst, romance, and puzzles galore, it has it all. Blended together to make a fantastic and original read.
Jennifer Lynn Barnes is an absolute genius when it comes to crafting complex plots, that have so many layers and puzzles with them, you become breathless turning the pages with eager anticipation to solve the puzzles and mystery unfolding as if you are stood next to the characters as it all unfolds.
Absolutely fantastic read!
I find with this author's books, I either love them or hate them - and I loved this one. You just have to suspend your disbelief and go with the flow, that a grandfather would disinherit his grandsons for a stranger none of them had ever met before, and then leave clues around the mansion. If you can do that, it's a enthralling read. I mean, this is a house with six - count 'em - six libraries, and its own bowling alley. The brothers are also intriguing characters, and I was initially drawn to Jameson which means he'll no doubt turn out to be the 'big bad' at the end. This is the first in a series of two? three? books so it does end on a cliffhanger. All I can say is, hurry up and write the next one. Please!
