A huge thank you to Netgalley, the author and The Write Reads for this review copy and a spot on the blog tour!

The blurb from the back of the book:

She came from nothing.

Avery has a plan: keep her head down, work hard for a better future.

Then an eccentric billionaire dies, leaving her almost his entire fortune. And no one, least of all Avery, knows why.

They had everything.

Now she must move into the mansion she’s inherited.

It’s filled with secrets and codes, and the old man’s surviving relatives – a family hell-bent on discovering why Avery got ‘their’ money.

Now there’s only one rule: winner takes all.
Soon she is caught in a deadly game that everyone in this strange family is playing.
But just how far will they go to keep their fortune?


This is a YA mystery that instantly reminded me of Cinderella. I loved every second of it.

I loved Avery. She is such a fun character to read and she is super intelligent. She is so kind to everybody despite what they throw at her, and very protective of her sister.

When Avery learns she has been left a fortune, she doesn’t understand why. She now has a series of puzzles and riddles to solve to help her figure it out. For that, she needs the help of the Hawthorne grandsons. Cue hilarious chats and encounters.

I can’t wait for book two. There were lots of unanswered questions and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
