OVER 2 MILLION COPIES SOLD OF THE #1 BESTSELLING SERIES! Don't miss this New York Times bestselling "impossible to put down" (Buzzfeed) novel with deadly stakes, thrilling twists, and juicy secrets—perfect for fans of One of Us is Lying and Knives Out. Avery Grambs has a plan for a better future: survive high school, win a scholarship, and get out. But her fortunes change in an instant when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves Avery virtually his entire fortune. The catch? Avery has no idea why—or even who Tobias Hawthorne is. To receive her inheritance, Avery must move into sprawling, secret passage-filled Hawthorne House, where every room bears the old man's touch—and his love of puzzles, riddles, and codes. Unfortunately for Avery, Hawthorne House is also occupied by the family that Tobias Hawthorne just dispossessed. This includes the four Hawthorne grandsons: dangerous, magnetic, brilliant boys who grew up with every expectation that one day, they would inherit billions. Heir apparent Grayson Hawthorne is convinced that Avery must be a conwoman, and he's determined to take her down. His brother, Jameson, views her as their grandfather's last hurrah: a twisted riddle, a puzzle to be solved. Caught in a world of wealth and privilege with danger around every turn, Avery will have to play the game herself just to survive. **Avery's story continues in The Hawthorne Legacy and The Final Gambit

From the bestselling author of Do I Know You? comes a fast-paced, riveting psychological thriller that skewers our modern obsession with home renovation and fixer-uppers. Holly and Robert Barron are attractive young real-estate investors and contestants in a competition run by To the Manor Build, the nation's most popular home renovation app. With millions in product endorsements and online followers at stake, they're rehabbing a Vermont home they scored at a bargain price into a chic hilltop estate ideal for entertaining. It's all camera-ready laughs and debates over herringbone tile until Holly and Robert go missing hours after their picture-perfect wedding--leaving behind a bloody trail. Suspicion falls quickly on Erika Turnbull, the Barrons' twenty-something assistant--eager, efficient, and secretly in love with Robert. Did Erika let her misguided passion turn her into a murderer? So claim the townsfolk of Snowden, Vermont, who still haven't forgiven her for a tragic accident back in high school. But Erika's mother, Kim, is not about to let small-town gossip and a cop with an axe to grind destroy her daughter--again. With time running out and their own lives at risk, the mother-daughter duo set out to find what really happened to the Barrons. First, though, they'll have to confront the vengeful former owner of Holly and Robert's estate, ruthless reality-show producers, and a secret that might bring their own house down. Fast-paced, full of humor, and undeniably twisty, We Love to Entertain is another winner from Sarah Strohmeyer.
