Avery is a normal teenage girl, living with her stepsister and just hoping to survive high school.

That is until she finds out that a billionaire that she doesn’t even know has left her his entire fortune. The only catch - she must live in his mansion with the relatives he left out of his inheritance for one year.

This is a wonderful, addictive thriller that is full of plot twists. The characters and storyline grab you from page one, and there is no putting this book down until you get to the end.

Full of family secrets and hidden agendas, as well as some underlying romantic attractions, not to mention the billions of dollars at stake, it is perfect for readers in middle-secondary and above who love fast paced mysteries. I can’t wait for the sequel!
