Rx: “Sunburn”

Prescribed for: Readers who love the darker, engrossing classics such as“The Postman Always Rings Twice” and “Double Indemnity.”  Perfect for anyone who likes their love stories with a side of suspense and betrayal.

Side Effects: Hand cramps from not wanting to put the book down.

“Sunburn,” is not just a nod to classic film noir, it is a well-written, compelling read from a New York Times Bestselling author who appreciates that not every love story has a happy ending.
