Named one of the Most Anticipated Books of 2018 by Bustle, Popsugar, Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, Seattle Times, Book Riot, LitHub, BookPage, and Paperback Paris. "Every time Laura Lippman comes out with a new book, I get chills because I know I am back in the hands of the master. She is simply a brilliant novelist, an unflinching chronicler of life in America right now, and Sunburn is her dark, gleaming noir gem. Read it." -Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman returns with a superb novel of psychological suspense about a pair of lovers with the best intentions and the worst luck: two people locked in a passionate yet uncompromising game of cat and mouse. But instead of rules, this game has dark secrets, forbidden desires, inevitable betrayals--and cold-blooded murder. 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. 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? Inspired by James M. Cain's masterpieces The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity, and Mildred Pierce, Sunburn is a tantalizing modern noir from the incomparable Laura Lippman.… (mais)

Sunburn is like the old black and white movies that the heroine, Polly, likes so much. She's the world-weary woman who leaves her husband and daughter while on a beach vacation to end up in a small town waitressing at the local bar. Adam is the guy whose truck broke down who ends up staying to cook at the same roadhouse. Both have secrets that are gradually revealed, but neither are particularly likable people. Hints from their past lives are rare, dropped at random, as the two become closer.
Polly is the heart of the story, a femme fatale who doesn't mean to leave a trail of victims in her wake, but that's just how things work out. It's a good read, a classic noir story that leaves the reader with lots to think about. ( )

A creepy thriller. Everything feels wrong and everyone has secrets, but who is the psychopath?

Polly runs from her family to start life anew. To start a small-town cash-based life as a waitress, in hiding, waiting for her windfall to come through. But Polly has a past, and the people she is hiding from know how to find her. But who is she really hiding from and why?

This story leaves you guessing the whole way through. Is Polly the victim of bad luck, bad people, or her own decisions? Or is she a victim at all?

Great narration by Susan Bennett. ( )

Wow! Amazing! Kept me up all night. Loved the characters, even the ones you’re not supposed to love. Great ending, although sad, very true to the story. One of the bests from Laura Lippmann! ( )

Read my full review here: https://www.howdidthatbookend.com/sunburn-laura-lippman/

I enjoyed this slow-burn beach read. The pace wasn’t fast, but I enjoyed the suspense and how all of the secrets unfolded. There were so many secrets and lies that sometimes all the lines were a little bit difficult to follow, but it was complicated in a good way.

Polly was a complicated character, and I’m still not sure if I liked her or not. Her motivations were hazy throughout the book, but she more or less ended up doing the right thing. Some of her decisions were shady, but she did what she had to do to protect herself. I admired how she unapologetically did whatever she needed to do to attain her goals.

Overall an entertaining read, perfect for the beach since it was set in summer.

3.5 I'm not sure I would've liked it as much if it hadn't been an audio book. This psychological thriller was effective in the two main voices -- I wanted to keep listening. It's also divided into to main parts: Smoke - the hint of a problem and Fire -- a full-blown issue. There are several clever layers like this to the story which makes it a little fuller than the simple plot line. Polly (aka Pauline with a couple different last names) shows up in a coastal town bar/diner, the Hi-Ho, looking for work. Coincidentally so does Adam Bosk. And their lives and stories entertwine from there. Polly is on the run from a marriage she wants out of and from a more sordid past than she cares to reveal. Without spoiling anything, another family is involved. She has goals and she has a long game and she's tremendously patient. Adam has that in common with her. His reasons for being there are much more self-interested and gratuitous, but he learns about Polly as the reader does and her past is spooled out in little doses that we all have to be content with. Tagged "unnatural" by her latest ex-husband, Polly is definitely calculating, manipulative and secretive. Can love soften that heart? That's the question both the reader and Adam have right up until the shocking end. Compelling and intriguing, this is a great vacation escapist story. ( )
