Two Jennifer Lynn Barnes books to read if you love The Inheritance Games
Little White Lies, Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Like The Inheritance Games, this book begins with a mysterious bargain. When Sawyer’s estranged grandmother offers her a six-figure contract to take part in her town’s debutant season, her first reaction is to cringe. But apart from the money, the deal might also offer Sawyer the chance to figure out her father’s identity. While she expected makeovers and dresses, what she didn’t expect was to find a group of fellow debutantes with dangerous secrets of their own. Turns out, the mystery of her father is just one of many shocking secrets that this high-society world is hiding.
Deadly Little Scandals, Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Deadly Little Scandals picks up where Little White Lies left off, as Swayer continues to struggle to unbury her family’s secrets. The answers she found during her debutant year only left her with more questions – and a massive secret. When her cousin Lily invites Sawyer to an elite secret society called the White Gloves, Sawyer might get the chance to connect with someone who has had the answers all along. Will a disturbing discovery ruin her chances of finding out the truth?
