Today is my first stop on the blog tour for The Brotherhood and The Refuge by Jo Fenton. Today I’ll be reviewing The Brotherhood. Be sure to check that out and enter the giveaway!
When a young woman becomes pregnant in a religious sect, how far will she go to escape the abusive leader and save the people she loves?
The Brotherhood – safe haven or prison?
After her parents’ sudden death, a grieving Melissa falls back on her faith and into the welcoming arms of a religious sect. Captivated by their leader, Dominic, she leaves her old life behind and moves to the countryside to join them.
But life in The Brotherhood is not as safe as it first appeared. When engineer Mark joins The Brotherhood, Melissa finds herself conflicted between her growing feelings for him and her crush on Dominic. With their leader’s initial encouragement, Melissa and Mark grow close.
But as her haven becomes a prison, Melissa’s newfound happiness is destroyed by Dominic’s jealousy. How can she escape and save the ones she loves?
Whoa. Just whoa. I had no idea what I was in store for with The Brotherhood. I saw psychological thriller and jumped on the blog tour. I am so glad I did!
There have been some really good psychological thrillers that I’ve been reading, but The Brotherhood might just take the cake. It is a book that I don’t want do describe much, because it’s something you should experience. What I can tell you is that you should expect not to put this down when you start reading it.
The pace is fast, the plot is addicting and disturbing. It has themes of mental and physical manipulation, and it really sits with you when you put it down.
I can’t say enough good things about The Brotherhood. If you enjoy fast-paced, psychological thrillers, you need to pick this one up. A definite add to my favorites of 2019!
Jo Fenton grew up in Hertfordshire. She devoured books from an early age, particularly enjoying adventure books, school stories and fantasy. She wanted to be a scientist from aged six after being given a wonderful book titled “Science Can Be Fun”. At eleven, she discovered Agatha Christie and Georgette Heyer, and now has an eclectic and much loved book collection cluttering her home office.
Jo combines an exciting career in Clinical Research with an equally exciting but very different career as a writer of psychological thrillers.
When not working, she runs (very slowly), and chats to lots of people. She lives in Manchester with her husband, two sons, a Corgi and a tankful of tropical fish. She is an active and enthusiastic member of two writing groups and a reading group.
