Sanctuary

By V.V. James

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

Big Little Lies meets The Craft, Sanctuary is a biting cross-genre thriller about four women with a dark secret who find themselves at the centre of a gripping murder investigation

Every town has its secrets. Sanctuary is built on them.

The small town of Sanctuary is rocked by the death of its star quarterback. It looked like an accident, but everyone knows Dan's ex-girlfriend Harper is the daughter of a witch - and she was there when he died.

Then the rumours start. When Harper insists Dan was guilty of a terrible act, the town turns on her. So was his death an accident, revenge - or something even darker?

As accusations fly, it's down to Detective Maggie Knight to prevent an investigation - and a town - from spiralling out of control.

Fame Adjacent

What if your best days ever, happened when you were 11? It's not easy being the only cast member of a 1990s song-and-dance show who didn't become famous. When Holly Danner was eleven, she used to do anything for a laugh on "Diego and the Lion's Den". Only for her childhood best friends to grow up and dominate the worlds of pop, film, and TV while she had a few near-misses and a nanny gig for her niece. She even made peace with the whole thing years ago. But when she finds out there's a 25th anniversary for the show and she wasn't invited, it's time to set the record straight. Three problems: she's currently in Internet Rehab, she has no money, and the only person who can get her to the reunion is Thom Parker, a handsome, infuriatingly level-headed patient who doesn't think she should confront her famous ex-friends. FAME ADJACENT is a contemporary, realistic, and humorous look at love, friendship, and fame, as seen through the eyes of a girl who lived it - from the sidelines.
