love that the stakes are high, the mystery is intense, and the relationships are messy, just like the first book. i ADORED that max finally appeared in person, i love her to pieces. the mystery itself is sliightly less exciting than in the first novel, just bc birth and family secrets are more typical drama than the original mystery of leaving a random girl a fortune, but i was still wholly engaged the entire time and i was right and wrong about things! i was SHOCKED by some things! i devoured this book in one go and i have no idea what could possibly be waiting in the last book, considering the end of this one felt kinda wrapped up, but with it only having been like two months since avery got her fortune it is still the beginning for her so im looking forward to reading the last book~

At times, I couldn't take this book seriously, but I think that improved my reading experience. The first book wasn't my thing, mostly because of the romance, and I went into this one knowing it probably wouldn't be my thing either.

In general, I'm not a fan of romantic subplots, and this one wasn't an exception. To me, it was more funny than anything. I found myself laughing out loud at times, especially at the descriptions and placement of some scenes. As with the first book, I think it's pretty obvious who she'll end up with, anyway.

SpoilerA few of the twists felt like they weren't properly set up and moreso there for shock value, especially those at the end. The twist with Millie felt especially random, considering she was mentioned only two or three times in the entire book beforehand.

However, even with all of its issues, I still had a generally good time reading it, mostly by not taking it seriously.

Ok, got better towards the end but at the start just felt like a repeat of the first book.
