The Hawthorne Legacy
The Hawthorne Legacy | Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Intrigue, riches, and romance abound in this thrilling sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Inheritance Games perfect for fans of Karen McManus and Holly Jackson. 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, 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, 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.

Last book of 2022. Started and finished on New Year's Eve! It's been a long time since I've been able to read a whole book in one day. I needed that break.

Hope everyone had a great New Years and here's to a wonderful 2023! 🎉

Avery's life has fired up considerably since book 1. With death threats, new enemies, and the entrance of her estranged father, our hero still has time for school work 😆. It's the puzzles and riddles that keep me engaged in this series and Legacy doesn't disappoint. What continues to annoy me is the flat (why do they only smolder?) characterization of the Hawthorne brothers which make the will-they or won't-they romances feel a little cheesy.

This YA series is ridiculously good fun. Which isn‘t to say it isn‘t completely over the top, implausible, & occasionally so out there it leaves you shaking your head because it is. It‘s also compulsively readable & a great escape that will have you turning pages as quickly as you can to keep up with all the action. So yeah, I enjoyed this puzzle filled mystery as much as the first & am diving right into the third book. Seriously fun reading.

Bibliomania I agree! So addictive. They were recommended to me by a school librarian and I've devoured them; the first and last books I literally couldn't put down!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Fast-paced,mysterious, more puzzles to solve, character development, thrilling plot twists

Avery‘s story is continuing, the bomb-shell ending from the previous instalment was continued in this second-part and over the course of the story all the characters had instances when their were turned upside down.Touching story about finding a family without being blood-related , Avery‘s “revenge” will it succeed?

I enjoyed this more than the 1st!! I wholly believe it is because you become more in touch with the main characters, the surrounding characters are still there, but not as strong of a presence. #Scarathlon2022 #TeamSlaughter #Spookoween #31by31 @Clwojick @TheSpineView @Catsandbooks

Main characters were likable and I even liked romance in this book. But there were still too many secondary characters that we knew almost nothing about.

I liked mysteries and puzzles in this one, but there were so many twists that it made everything a little hard to follow.

I liked this one more than the first one, this had action from the first pages and was easier to read.

Look. These aren't great. The love triangle is AWFUL. But if you've ever read a petty drama Facebook post and all 300 comments for the juice without ever getting involved-- that's this in a book. At an intellectual level, these are meh. The speed I read them at... well. I NEED the juice. I'll likely get the third immediately just to answer questions and be thoroughly annoyed at the romance triangle end.

This series has basically turned into a soap opera- amnesia and all- but I‘m not mad. I mean, this book was still really good. But it took me a book and a half to realize there was a love triangle. I don‘t know if that‘s me being oblivious or if it‘s just not been written prominently enough. I also feel like it‘d be better if Avery‘s relationship with the boys was platonic, not romantic, but hey I‘ll read them all either way. 5⭐️

I loved book 2 over the first one! This was fast paced and the story was written in such a way I kept saying “ok just a couple more pages” until BAM I finished the book. Oh and it was 2am 🙄 yeah getting up this morning was a struggle. Oh well. So goes life. #blqsummerreadingchallenge #bluecover #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

This book was PHENOMENAL. The riddles, the plot twists, the characters, everything. I‘ve already re-read it twice after finishing it a few weeks ago. I absolutely loved the first book too, but the plot and ending of that one pales in comparison to this one. I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys hard to guess mystery/riddle books with a love triangle element and lovable characters.

Very typical— sequels are never better than the first, and this one fell right in line with the rest. Same ole, same ole. Except for I didn‘t realize there was a THIRD BOOK!! Why did none of y‘all tell me?! And it‘s not even out yet! Oh well, it wasn‘t terrible. 5/10

4th book read for#NovelNovember #readathon @Andrew65

I liked this second book in the series even better than the first because I was even more invested in the characters' outcomes. I loved all the twists and turns and I really admire Avery's resiliency and level head.

This was a very entertaining sequel to The Inheritance Games. This YA mystery, suspense puzzle book series is definitely worth checking out. This is not a standalone and you should start with book 1 first. 4.5⭐️ Another book done for #NovelNovember and a free space for my #bookspinbingo

Daisey I‘m listening to the first book right now and really enjoying it! 1y

A soft pick, didn‘t like this as much as the first one. Found the mystery to be both underwhelming and confusing. I am really hoping the love triangle has been put to rest, too. I‘m still invested in how it ends and the characters, so I‘ll read the final book.

This series is just amazing! The characters are complex, the writing is great, and I actually like the love triangle in here. This one fills in some information gaps from the first one, which I liked. Will definitely read the next one.

3¾⭐ (mostly a pick) | NARRATION 😁 = Very Good | Narrated by 📣 Christie Moreau
The pacing was quite slow for the first two-thirds of the book. The ping-ponging between love interests with the two Hawthornes was a little much for me, also. Obviously, the last third helped this from being a complete snooze-fest. It was even rather good. ⬇ ⬇ ⬇

AudiobookingWithLeah The fact that I‘ve always liked JLB‘s books and the concept of being some random girl who inherits millions...or is billions, is very interesting, plus the riddles and games make this a fun series of books.

It‘s kinda disappointing. It feels like there shouldn‘t be book 3 anymore. And like book 1, Avery is a lowkey flirt and I hate it. Puzzles-to-be-solved and the mystery are not that exciting anymore. I also felt like it‘s just circling to the same topic. The love interest is just an added flavor to the story but fails to deliver. I don‘t know. I used to like Grayson more than Jameson but here they lose their charm.

This book does not suffer from the usual middle book in a trilogy issues. It is still a fun,full throttled, absorbing read as Avery continues to work out the reasons for her mysterious inheritance. I could have done without the love triangle but then I am not a teenage girl.

I loved the first book, and I loved this one too. There are lots of twists & turns - it was a fast-paced thrill ride with a smattering of romance. I still ship Avery/Jameson over Avery/Grayson as I think AJ has much more chemistry than AG, but I think there are more revelations to come there. I cannot wait for the third book. 5🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Penguin Random House Children's UK, for the opportunity to read an ARC.
