A cult, sisters and suspense

There’s still time to grab a thriller to keep you company during a long February night!

From USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Wrobel comes a story of one sister determined to save the other from a cult in “This Might Hurt.”

The last time Natalie heard from her sister Kit, she was living for six months on a private island in the care of Wisewood, a group that promises Maximized Selves with no contact to the outside world, which includes phones, Internet, and of course, communication with family members. But when Natalie gets an email from a Westwood account threatening to reveal a secret to Kit, she’s determined to get them to let her go — and keep the secret. But once she gets there, she soon learns secrets are all over Wisewood, and the road to Maximized Selves might just lead to murder.

With mysterious leader of a group that might not be so benevolent, multiple narrators and two different timelines, there’s a lot going on, but it all blends together well into a taunt psychological thriller. It’s a concoction of cult of personality, secrets and lies. Wrobel can write a mind twister.

“This Might Hurt” is published by Berkley. It is $26.
