What would cause a woman to brutally murder a man she loves?

January hits the big time when she marries millionaire Warren Vanderhorn. With looks, money, and charisma, he’s the ideal GQ cover guy.

When he ends up murdered, all signs point to her as the perpetrator. As she uncovers some of Warren’s long-hidden secrets, suspects start popping out of the woodwork, and her own history with violence starts making her question herself. People she thinks she knows—and trusts—turn out to be liars who keep things from her. Everyone around her suddenly has a reason to want Warren dead, but she’s the only one who was there that night.

Now, she’s questioning everything, even her own sanity, as her life unravels.

Buckle your seatbelts and prepare for the ride that is Manipulation. I am a huge Jo Michaels fan, so I’m hardly surprised at how captivating this novel is, but dang, she knocked it out of the park with this one!

Psychological thriller is likely Jo Michaels middle name. She is a force in this genre and she proves it with every book. Manipulation is no exception. With every chapter, the story becomes more of a puzzle, with new questions. Every time I thought I understood what was happening, a new twist would come.

I did not see the ending coming. It blew my mind. One thing I love about the characters in Jo Michaels’ novels are that they are super intriguing and not always trustworthy. That is what I felt in Manipulation. There was a lot of secrets and things that didn’t quite feel right. I love that. It kept me on the edge of my seat.

I highly recommend Manipulation! This is definitely a contender for my favorite book of the year.



Jo Michaels loves writing novels that make readers gasp in horror, surprise, and disbelief. While her browser search history has probably landed her on a list somewhere, she still dives into every plot with gusto, hoping “the man” will realize she’s a writer and not a psychopath about to go on a rampage. Her favorite pastimes are reading, watching Investigation Discovery, and helping other authors realize their true potential through mentoring. She’s penned the award-winning Pen Pals and Serial Killers series and the best-selling educational book for children, Writing Prompts for Kids, which has rocketed the kids that use it into several awards of their own.

Most of Jo’s books feature the places she’s lived: Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia. That’s given her a special amount of insight to what makes those locations tick. Her works are immersive and twisty, and she wouldn’t want it any other way.
