    An escape—that's exactly what Birdie Devaine needs when witches around the world publicly announce their existence. 
    Instead of performing for the sold-out crowd at her world-famous magic show in Vegas, Birdie runs away from the dazzling lights to her hometown in Mississippi. Back to the town she swore off over a century ago. 
    She thinks she has it all planned out—keeping busy with renovating an old beautiful house and eventually fading away from the spotlight. But the house has its secrets, including the haunted cemetery that Birdie is now responsible for. It doesn't help when her nosy neighbor catches on to Birdie's big secret—that she's a true witch with real magical powers. 
    But when the busybody turns up dead on Birdie's new property, the former southern debutante becomes the prime suspect in the case. Cue the ladies of Witch Hazel Lane—a group of women who've stuck together for forty years. With their help, Birdie is on the hunt for the real killer. Will they help get her off the hook? Will Birdie's true nature stay secret? And what is she supposed to do with the stray dog that refuses to leave her house?

    This is a summary & it does not accompany the official. 
    In "Verity" by Colleen Hoover, Lowen Ashleigh, a struggling writer facing financial hardship, accepts a life-changing job offer from Jeremy Crawford. Jeremy's wife, Verity Crawford, a bestselling author, is unable to complete her successful book series due to injury, and he hires Lowen to finish it. 
    Upon arriving at the Crawford residence to sort through Verity's notes and outlines, Lowen stumbles upon an unexpected treasure: an unfinished autobiography that Verity never intended for anyone to see. As she reads page after bone-chilling page, including Verity's account of a tragic family event, Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy to spare him further pain. 
    However, as Lowen's feelings for Jeremy grow stronger, she begins to see the potential advantages of revealing Verity's shocking revelations. She realizes that the truth within the manuscript could profoundly impact Jeremy's feelings for his wife, and this realization forces her to confront a difficult moral dilemma. "Verity" is a gripping tale of secrets, love, and the devastating power of hidden truths.

But bringing that killer to trial imperils Kate's professional standing and personal privacy—and her belief in the justice system to which she has devoted her life.The suspect claims self-defense—that Teddie Crawford made a homosexual advance and backed it up with a knife. Yet everything Kate learns about Teddie Crawford tells her that his murder was deliberate. And to develop proof of first degree murder, she must find clear answers to mystifying questions for the prosecuting attorney—a woman who has never before prosecuted a homicide case.Kate is increasingly isolated as she tries to shield her young lover from the brutal realities of this case and finds few allies among her LAPD brethren. Even her partner, Ed Taylor, is loathe to aggressively pursue a case involving a dead gay man and his gay associates. As the trial date looms, she discovers she has a personal stake: the defense attorney is a man from her past. A man with the power to expose the private life she has kept rigidly separate from her life as a police officer.
