Sanctuary by V.V. James
A suspenseful debut that twists Big Little Lies with Practical Magic in a dark mystery of four women, a wicked secret―and an investigation that shakes their Connecticut town to the core.
Sanctuary is the perfect town . . . to hide a secret.
When young Daniel Whitman is killed at a high-school party, the community is ripped apart. The death of Sanctuary's star quarterback seems to be a tragic accident, but everyone knows his ex-girlfriend Harper Fenn is the daughter of a witch―and she was there when he died.
VV James weaves a spellbinding tale of a town cracking into pieces and the devastating power of a mother's love. Was Daniel's death an accident, revenge―or something even more sinister?
As accusations fly, paranoia grips the town, culminating in a witch-hunt...and the town becomes no sanctuary at all.
