This was an old-style newspaper reporter-type murder mystery. Much was also made about gender expectations and race relations in 1960s Baltimore. Good, but with a few issues that detracted from the story. My main issue with the book was the multiple side jaunts into peripheral characters. 3⭐️

Theaelizabet A so-so read for me, too. 4w

A black woman disappears in 1960s Baltimore and no one seems to care. A white woman learns a body has been found and decides this will make her newspaper career. I liked the idea of the historical mystery, but I found the audio a bit hard to follow as the story jumped around and I ultimately struggled to care about what was happening. Definitely not my favorite Lippman.

JennyM I‘ve just finished this in print and really enjoyed it. But I think audio would have been a whole different experience. I would have been very confused with the multiple and continually different characters. (edited) 1mo
Hooked_on_books @JennyM You know, I was really wondering if I would respond differently to it print, and based on your comment, I probably would. And yet some books are better in audio. They should really come with labels. 😬😂 1mo

Bordering on a pick but I ended up totally HATING Madeline by the end of the book!!! A decent mystery that was made a little difficult in audio due to every character's perspective being intertwined with the "Lady's" perspective. I enjoyed the appearances can be deceiving aspect of the story but I wasn't horribly thrown by the plot twist. Again, Madeline Morgenstern Schwartz is an awful human being... that is all... LOL

3) looking forward to snacking on tea and chocolate
4) This is my first time in this readathon tho I‘ve done 24in48 a few times

An interesting mystery. Not sure it‘s noire, even though the title is borrowed from Chandler. Lippmann tells the story through multiple voices, alternating after each character is introduced through the narrative. It works except when it doesn‘t. Great twist toward the end.

Not my favorite Lippman, but can‘t deny her talent.

I feel like I should prefice this by saying that my sister was in town the last week so my reading time was few and far between, I read this book in short bursts and it certainly didn't help. I love Laura Lippman in general, and this was written very well, but the twist didn't do it for me and the ending felt a bit anticlimactic. Loved the use of shifting perspectives though!

UnabridgedPod I felt the same way. 😕 2mo

I really enjoyed this book. It‘s the first Laura Lippman book I‘ve ever read. I will definitely be checking out her other work. I particularly loved the tenacity of the women in the book. I‘d seen criticism that the book swapped perspective to too many characters too often and it was confusing. I found that engaging and that was one of my favorite things about this book. If you want a good page-turner that sucks you in, maybe give this a go.

Laura Lippman's Lady in the Lake was a three-and-a-half star read for me. (It's my second book by Lippman, after I was absolutely wowed by Sunburn.) The novel focuses on Maddie, a white woman who has just left her wealthy husband and teenage son. The book also centers, to a lesser extent (as far as presence on the page goes), on Cleo, a black woman who narrates her own story after her murder. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod The women's stories become intertwined by their neighborhood, by their beauty, and by their attraction to danger and risk. Lippman threads an array of voices through the women's stories, offering tiny, compelling micro-autobiographies that reveal the lives of the people Maddie meets. ⬇️ 3mo
UnabridgedPod I found the entirety of the novel to be mildly intriguing, but it didn't quite connect--I found it all too easy to put this one down. I felt, in general, that the book paled in comparison to the beautifully noirish tone and captivating story Lippman told in Sunburn. Overall, an okay read. 3mo

A Jewish woman in 1960s Baltimore rebels against her family and finds herself drawn to a series of murders in the city. A noir that centers on race relations and old school newspaper jobs in a changing city and industry. I loved it.

I like multiple POV novels, and this one had the unique twist of a POV of a mentioned character in the chapter prior that gave insight of the main character. I didn‘t especially like Maddie Schwartz but it was an entertaining book. Light and quick read.

We went for a walk in the rain. Now it's time for snuggling... And reading.

This one is unfolding a little bit slower than I thought it would. I can't decide if I like it or not. The various narrators are interesting but it feels less cohesive in some ways because of this. I'm interested enough to keep reading though. Who's read this one?

AlaMich Awww! 🐶❤️ 3mo

valeriegeary @cathipink I loved Sunburn too! But I found this one to be not as good. I liked it but didn't love it. It has the same slow burn feel and Lippman's writing is engaging as always. But the characters didn't pop the way they did in Sunburn. Part of that might have been because of the multiple narrators. 🤷 3mo

I might be the last one to know, but I had NO idea that Lippman's spouse is the creator of The Deuce & The Wire, aka one of the greatest shows of all time. Mind. Blown. I really do want to check out Lippman's books. I've heard nothing but good things.

This was my first novel by Laura Lippman and it was so good! I have seen so much hype over this book and it lived up to it. I read this book in one day because I couldn‘t put it down. I had to keep reading to figure out what was going on. The ending was shocking and I never saw it coming! I will definitely be reading Lippman‘s other novels!

4.5 ★ My first book by Laura Lippman proved to be impressive with intriguing mysteries involving two missing persons and a storyline centering on an interesting female protagonist, and a ghost. All happening during the start of the civil rights era in mid 60‘s Baltimore where racial tension and the separation of class‘s were prevalent. ❥ #netgalley #WilliamMorrow

The things I loved about this book were the newspaper setting, the ending (that I did not guess), and the way minor characters got first person chapters so the reader could get into their minds. What I didn‘t love was the main character being both naive and callous in her pursuit of a story. I did like her as a woman who wasn‘t satisfied with what society expected of her. I was drawn back to this when I was reading other things so that‘s a pick.

Lady in the Lake was intense, and will keep you on the edge of you seat the entire time. How Lippman adds so much detail without crowding the plot is amazing. This is a must read for every Lippman fan and anybody who likes a good mystery.

This was my first Laura Lippman book and I really enjoyed it. I was captivated from the first page and my interest remained until I turned the final page. I thought the writing was effortless and authentic and I felt a strong connection to the time & place. Maddie Schwartz wants more than just being Milt‘s pretty wife. It‘s 1966 and she‘s ready to make a change. More than just a mystery, this book is also a look at race & equality. #NetGalley #ARC
