Personally, I do not think that 2020 has been generous to a lot of us. There has been an eerie amount of turmoil – in our lives and all around us. Without the company of books, I may have become a lot less sane than I am already.
And thanks to The Write Reads and the gang, I have had quite a few great books to read this year.
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is the perfect showcase of what abrupt upheaval brings with it. How it affects people, and their lives. Avery Grambs is a young girl, looking to finish high school and pursue her dreams. She lives with her sister, has one close friend and is otherwise like those millions of ‘normal’ people who go about living their life each day. Until it isn’t so.
Avery and her sister Libby are made aware that they need to be present for the reading of the will of one Mr Tobias Hawthorne, a billionaire who loved to play games. And in the presence of his family, his loyal servants and his trusted advisors, Mr Hawthorne’s attorneys reveal that he has left his estate to Avery Grambs. A girl who has no connection to him. Imagine being the beneficiary of loads and loads of money left to you by a complete stranger. All that follows is chaos of another kind. There are puzzles, and crime and revelations that shock everyone involved.
The Inheritance Games was a superb read. It was a book I read in one sitting. Completely riveting and The Inheritance Games keeps the reader on their toes through out. Who does one trust, who is the villain, who are the good people? So many questions, not too many answers.

Jennifer Lynn Barnes has done a great job with this book and I can’t wait for the next installment in the series.
