Link to Goodreads:

Eight competitors, three continents, millions of dollars... and only one winner.

Avery is the black sheep of the wealthy VanDemere clan. The ostracized illegitimate daughter. But when her grandmother announces a competition to determine who will inherit her fortune, Avery sees a chance to prove herself to her family.

Teaming up with Riley, the handsome son of her grandmother’s lawyer, Avery sets out to win challenges that span from Venezuelan mines to Scottish castles. Throughout the game, Avery becomes more drawn to Riley—and more determined to win. But when the competition takes a treacherous turn, she wonders who she can truly trust . . . and whether winning is worth her life.

A breathless, high-stakes thriller sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats, this novel from Kate Kae Myers combines intricate family politics with the drama and adventure of The Amazing Race.



   
Why I'm Excited:

This sounds intriguing and fast-paced. I love the idea of a game taking the main character all over the world, and always love the "black sheep" character. I'm definitely keeping my eyes open for this one. It sounds really fun.

  14. Does sound fun! And unless you're reading a road-trip one you never really get out of the place a books set in (you could kind of class this as road-trip type I guess) so that should be good annnnnd haven't really read one like this so something new. :)

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
