Sunburn by Laura Lippman

Polly has a plan to leave her husband and daughter which she easily executes while on a family vacation. She runs to the small town of Belleville, figuring it’s a good place to hide.

Maybe it’s her fire red hair or her quiet way, but there’s something about Polly that others are drawn to. While not traditionally beautiful, she has a personality that makes her intriguing and mysterious. When Adam meets her, he immediately sees this quality and pretty quickly falls for her. But falling in love with Polly is the opposite of what Adam was sent to Belleville to do.

To complicate matters, Adam isn’t the only man who is looking for Polly. Her secret past is catching up to her and moving to this small town is a minor fix for her larger problems. Will Adam complete his mission? Will Polly continue to outrun her past? Or is there more to this story?

A good story with well-built characters. Recommended for those who enjoy a light mystery. Find this item in our catalog here.
