"Tony trappings and a boldly drawn, predominantly white cast complement the delightfully soapy plot of this strong, Knives Out-esque series opener from Barnes...An abundance of cryptic clues and tempestuous love triangles provides ample enjoyment."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

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!
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.
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!
At times I found the book to be a little too teenage angst(y) for me, but I'm not a teenager by any stretch so I didn't hold this against the book and it didn't detract from the storyline and plot, which kept me interested. The book moved at a good pace and constantly introduced new elements. The book reveals itself chapter by chapter and character by character. You need to learn all of the players to know why the game is being played and to win.
So if you're not looking for a difficult read but one that will still keep you engaged with a mystery, puzzles and riddles, then play along with the characters and win the game.
