    The smart, sophisticated, standout new thriller from the author of The Recovery of Rose Gold

    Welcome to Wisewood. Where we keep your secrets, if you keep ours.

    High-flier Natalie Collins isn't the worrying type.
    Unlike her younger sister Kit - who can't seem to settle on anything.
    But when Kit insists on joining Wisewood, a self-help retreat on a secluded Maine island, Natalie has concerns.
    Why does it forbid contact with the outside world? Is it a cult?

    Then, after six months of silence, she receives a message:
    We know what you did.
    Would you like to come and tell your sister - or should we?

    Who is digging into the Collins' past? How did they discover Natalie's secret?
    She will have to go to Wisewood to find out. To learn if this place of healing has more sinister motives.
    Can she rescue Kit? Or might Natalie be the one who needs saving?

    Because Wisewood is far easier to get into than to leave . . .

    This Might Hurt is a whipsmart thriller of sisters, secrets and sanctuary and what fear will do to those we love.
