Sunburn by Laura Lippman Book Review

The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date: February 20, 2018

One is playing a long game. But which one?

They meet at a local tavern in the small town of Belleville, Delaware. Polly is set on heading west. Adam says he’s also passing through.

Yet she stays and he stays—drawn to this mysterious redhead whose quiet stillness both unnerves and excites him. Over the course of a punishing summer, Polly and Adam abandon themselves to a steamy, inexorable affair. Still, each holds something back from the other—dangerous, even lethal, secrets that begin to accumulate as autumn approaches, feeding the growing doubts they conceal.

Then someone dies. Was it an accident, or part of a plan? By now, Adam and Polly are so ensnared in each other’s lives and lies that neither one knows how to get away—or even if they want to. Is their love strong enough to withstand the truth, or will it ultimately destroy them?

Something—or someone—has to give.

Which one will it be?

Sunburn by Laura Lippman Book Review

Sunburn is a novel of lust, love, and deceit; of the most addicting kind.  This one will make for a perfect throw in your beach-bag summer read, mainly because once you open to the first chapter, you will need the sun protection…. you will be glued to your beach chair.  UN-PUT-DOWNABLE!!!
