Publisher's Summary

New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

Her trip to Georgia to meet the mysterious author takes her to an eerie, ruined cotton plantation, where Maris finds Parker Evans, a man confined to a wheelchair who carefully hides his past. Coaxing his novel from him chaper by chapter, Maris becomes caught up in his tale of two friends who rent a boat with a young woman for a night of sex and drinking. Only one person will return from that trip.

Disturbed about her sexual attraction to Parker and worried about her marriage to author and her co-publisher Noah Reed, Maris returns to New York, where the delivery of Parker's newest chapters convince her they are more than fiction. She wonders how well she knows her husband and begins a harrowing search for a truth that ties back to a terrifying crime and a man who will use her, or anyone, to get his revenge.

    "Don't bother with this one."

    This audio book was simply not good. I did not like the narrator's performance; he was very monotone. The story was unbelievable, the characters, for the most part, were unlikeable, and parts of it were very crass. No thanks.

    "Awesome!"

    This book pulled me in from the first word and kept me riveted to the last. The characters were so well developed you felt like you knew them personally. Some parts were a bit predictable, but it was fun to listen to them unfold nonetheless. So far, this is my favorite from Sandra Brown. Love the narrator! He is a pleasure to listen to an enhanced the story. This is a credit well spent here on Audible.

    "Excellent"

    I believe that this has become my favorite Sandra Brown book and one of my favorite books altogether. I didn't want to put it down. It was an altogether excellent novel from the characters to the plot to the overall story itself. Great job Sandra Brown...you definitely hit a homerun with this one. I have already recommended it to many.

    "Envy"

    Great book with terrific characters. Suspenseful and surprising. I could have done without the explicit sex scenes. Leaving something to the imagination would have been just fine.

    "I "Envy" Ms. Browns Superb Writing....A must read"

    What a mastery of love, lies, deception and mystique....this is one of the best books of Sandra Brown's I have read.....actually one of the best mystery/romance novels I have read in a long time. This story is actually a book within a book and Ms. Brown has the talent to encompass 2 different and yet intricately involved stories into to 1 book. The story is of 2 rival authors that start out their careers as best friends....yet greed, jealousy, ambition and envy draw both to use the same beautiful woman to their own ends....at her expense.....fantastic read with twists and turns and a few surprises.....great love scenes that touch your heart as well as the nether-parts.

    "Great plot!"

    Although I have to admit, I did find myself daydreaming a little in the first couple chapters, the further I got into it, the better it was. It wasn't long before I found myself hardly able to wait to listen again to see what would happen next. Great & realistic characters, and great story plot. It kept me in suspense until the end! I would definitely recommend this book to others.

    I've always liked Sandra Brown's work, but I think this one tops them all! I have to also give credit to the narrator...great voice and excellent job!

    "Great break from the mass produced dribble!"

    Great book. Great reading. The story has enough twists to keep you going, but doesn't get lost in trying to be too smart to follow. Fun book to listen to.

    "Good characters, but be careful where you listen!"

    This was a great book and definitely captivated my attention. The characters, plot and the twists were great. But as others have said pretty erotic scenes! This was my first Sandra Brown and I chose it because others said it was one of her best. It made me want to hear another one of her books. It was a great summer book!
