The final game is afoot and the players are ready to puzzle their way through. But with the stakes so high are they prepared to take a very risky gamble? There are some new players on the scene and dark secrets are about to surface. I did enjoy this book, however it felt a little bit same-samey. More family intrigue, more clues, more hidden passageways. Just more. I don't think JLB stepped it up enough for the finale. The ending felt a little bit anti-climactic to me given how layered the story was. Also, some elements felt like they might have been added in to make convenient connections in the story. Entertaining but I had hoped to be wowed and am sorry to say I was not.
A worthy end to a very enjoyable series. I do love that Hawthorne boys!
Definitely a fitting end to a very long puzzle. Once again, just when I thought I had it figured out, a new player/twist enters the Hawthorne House of Puzzles. Avery is one amazing character, always trying to stay a few steps ahead of everyone playing Tobias Hawthorne's game. She knows she is a pawn in his twisted game and she manages to outwit them all. The love triangle was there once again between Avery, Jameson & Grayson. Am I satisfied with the end result of that triangle...I'll let other readers decide for themselves. Once the dust settles and the "winner" takes it all, the reader will be content with the ending. This story definitely wraps up the trilogy. This is one for those who truly love a good puzzle!
This was a fun, quick read and the final battle was fun. But I feel like I enjoyed the first two books more. She continued to repeat many things in the book, like clues to a puzzle or sentiments. Maybe this is okay, because it is a mystery and Avery was trying to figure it however, it felt like some stuff was spoon fed to us like how to interpret an obvious facial expression or threat. For example, the bad guy says "... I wonder?" and Avery thinks "He expects me to wonder about it" (not exact quotes), but it was obvious that's what he meant, he was described as being a typical kind of villain.
Avery's fortune, life, and loves are on the line in the game that everyone will be talking about. To inherit billions, all Avery Kylie Grambs has to do is survive a few more weeks living in Hawthorne House. The paparazzi are dogging her every step. Financial pressures are building. Danger is a fact of life. And the only thing getting Avery through it all is the Hawthorne brothers. Her life is intertwined with theirs. She knows their secrets, and they know her. But as the clock ticks down to the moment when Avery will become the richest teenager on the planet, trouble arrives in the form of a visitor who needs her help--and whose presence in Hawthorne House could change everything. It soon becomes clear that there is one last puzzle to solve, and Avery and the Hawthorne brothers are drawn into a dangerous game against an unknown and powerful player. Secrets upon secrets. Riddles upon riddles. In this game, there are hearts and lives at stake--and there is nothing more Hawthorne than winning.
