So much happened in the last 30-50 pages! It was still so good, but why couldn't there be more incidents? Some scenes needed a little bit of action. It dragged a little. One of the things that kept me going was the romance between Avery and Jameson. I know that Grayson and Avery "think similarly", but Avery and Jameson have more chemistry, even if Grayson and Avery help each other work on things personally. Because it dragged, it was still good, but not as good as the first book.

The ending lacked a little for me but also wrapped up kind of nicely. Not sure where we go from here hut am excited to find out. 

SpoilerAlso wish Avery had chosen Grayson but maybe it's because I like him...

This series is the definition of curve ball and somehow it always makes sense. There is no solving these books in advance. You, the reader, are definitely just along for the whirlwind ride, and yet they always keep me feeling engaged. 
It takes forever to get to an answer but the pacing is done so well that the book never feels slow.
Once again, Jennifer Lynn Barnes has earned a gold star for dialogue. Every quip had me smiling. Every heartfelt confession tugged at my heart. 
I don't know how the characters of Hawthorne House can be so mysterious and so loveable at the same time, but every one of them is thoroughly enjoyable.
Even though the story felt like it would have to leave loose ends, Barnes managed to wrap every mystery in a satisfying bow.
The plot may not be complex and the characters may not be the deepest you'll ever read, but I completely enjoyed every page of The Hawthorne Legacy and can't wait to dive in to book 3.

Not as enthralling as The Inheritance Games for me, but still a fun follow-up. Lots of action and drama. Found it really difficult to keep the relationships between the characters straight in this one, maybe because I was listening instead of reading?

I love this series! I love riddles and puzzles so this series is perfect for me! I enjoye  this book just as much as I enjoyed the first book. Avery continues to solve the Mysteries of the Hawthorne family in this 2nd book in the series. The four Hawthorne Brothers are right there with her.

Really enjoying this series, the extensive cast of characters, the mysteries that are continually introduced. I really liked how Avery’s connection to the Hawthorne family keeps evolving as she uncovers more details from Tobias and even her own history. I’m curious if there will be more info about her mothers family in the next book as I felt it was quickly covered in this book.

Looking forward to see where the next book goes, so far this is definitely a series I would recommend, for almost any age.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
