Avery Grambs has a plan for a better future: survive high school, win a scholarship, and drop out. But their luck changes in an instant when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies, leaving Avery with virtually his entire fortune. The capture? Avery has no idea why or who Tobias Hawthorne is.
To keep his legacy, Avery must move into Hawthorne House, a sprawling house filled with secret passages where every room has the old man’s touch and his love of puzzles, riddles, and codes. Unfortunately for the Avery, Hawthorne House is also occupied by family that Tobias Hawthorne just dispossessed.
That includes Hawthorne’s four grandchildren: dangerous, magnetic, brilliant children who grew up expecting they would one day inherit billions. Heir apparent Grayson Hawthorne is convinced that Avery must be an imposter and is determined to bring her down. Her brother Jameson sees her as her grandfather’s last hurray: a tangled riddle, a riddle to be solved. Trapped in a world of wealth and privilege, with danger around every corner, Avery must play her own game to survive.

So the truth is, there were times when I wanted to give this book a lot more than five stars. The premise and characters had so much potential that I swallowed it whole in a matter of hours. The narrative energy didn’t let up. The author (this is the first book I’ve read of hers, but she’s obviously been doing it for a while) is also a cognitive scientist, and it shows. It’s not that the book is riddled with terms, but that the story feels like a series of escalating bursts of dopamine that work masterfully to keep the reader engaged.
Now. About the characters. A prospective actuarial student enters the playground of four successful but destructive young billionaire brothers. Seriously, how much more persuasive can you be right off the bat? So here I am asking for more from this book because I feel like I’m ready for more. Exciting. I’ve given five stars to other books and movies that didn’t captivate or captivate me as much as this one did, but I’m giving it one star here because it raised my expectations way above other books and movies. I think it’s possible that the author tried to juggle too many (valuable) variables here.
Xander was the least convincing of the brothers in my opinion. Lanky, good-natured, and explosive (literally), this “genius” here felt like an insert of some sort. Nash could have delivered more with Libby’s story with his messianic complex (nice early sidenotes between these two characters created hopeful fumes that never froze). Also, his nickname for Alisa was less endearing and gave me (me) a creepier vibe, okay dude get over it.
The shirtless, scarred, nickname-generating Jameson was intriguing and sizzling with all sorts of potential I never quite realized. Grayson. Wearing a power-scented suit that ripples in the back, Grayson is a young boy. To channel the pun for the lovable (and underdeveloped) Max, cheese and rice. Here was a character that caught my attention from the moment he first appeared. And here was a character who I felt was completely let down when the much less compelling theatrics starring Thea, Rebecca and Emily took center stage in the book’s final quarter.
The green dress and braided hair sequence at the gala brought budding potentials to a heady boiling point in the electrifying, dignified scene between Avery and Gray at the foundation, plunging them into evil mind-fax territory.
The end was too much trap after trap, riddle after riddle. And not in a satisfactory way. A truly great mystery weaves together elements early on that imbue the narrator (and thus the reader) with clarity during the resolution (see Lorena Hughes’ The Sisters of Alameda Street). This denouement only introduced more and more secret trapdoors and tunnels that at times felt like the author was shooting passages in Hawthorne House on a series of whims. I wanted more of this.
Because I felt ready to want more. From the old man’s post-mortem attempt to dissuade two of his grandchildren from the zero-sum tendencies he’d fostered since childhood, to the sizzling chemistry between Avery and Gray being undermined and neglected, which I think kind of a soapy, bloated swelling was supposed to end with too much and too little.
Obviously this has been configured to work as a series. And will I pre-order the next fax as soon as it becomes available? Um, yes. So, in the basic, business sense, mission accomplished. But I expect more from the characters and situations. Because I firmly believe that the spirit that sponsored that opening salvo is exquisitely capable of delivering.
