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.

    Story
    "SANDRA DOES IT AGAIN !!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story kept you guessing and waiting to see what was to happen.


    Have you listened to any of Victor Slezak’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was the first. He was great. I am an avid Dick Hill fan and snob, but Slezak was great. I was happy to hear that there is another great male narrator who will do romance.

    Story
    "Well done. Best of her books and great narration"

    Best of her books by far. I like Victor's voice. He does the southern accents very well and 'not over the top.' His voice is calming and easy to listen to. But if you are one of those that like energetic voices, this isn't for you. Try the sample. I really like the narration.

    "No sure about the beginning of the story, but WOW!"
    What did you love best about Envy?

    I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book, but I found as I read more I wanted to continue to find out what was actually going on with the characters. It was a great read.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me thinking and wondering what was next. I thought I figured it all out at several times through the story. I learned I was only partly right which was great and keep me intrigued to read more.


    What about Victor Slezak’s performance did you like?

    I liked Victors narration. He fit the books characters well. They all came to life to me. Great job.

    What did you love best about Envy?

    I enjoyed listening to the twists and turns of this story. Although I did figure out some of the twists before they occurred the author got me with others. This was a fun listen.

    "Loved story and narrator"
    If you could sum up Envy in three words, what would they be?

    Enticing, electric, emotional


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. The writer's story was richly layered and kept you wondering what was going to happen next.


    What does Victor Slezak bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice really resonated for me as the character of the writer. It seemed to fit him perfectly. I wouldn't want to hear him in anyone else's voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. When she discovered her husband's involvement.


    Any additional comments?

    Something about Slezak's voice brought the writer's taunting way of speaking to life for me. Hard and crusty, but just a cover up to hide his pain. Would love to hear him narrate more of this character. Will look for more books narrated by him.

    "Love the story, narrator Slezak amazing"
    What does Victor Slezak bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is so pleasing to listen to and he reads so well. I wish he narrated more good books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great story, and the narrator superb. The only thing to be forewarned is it's a bit racy, so I wouldn't listen to it on speaker mode with small children.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I found this story, within another story, captivating and suspenseful could not wait for the next chapter to emerge


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Envy?

    The disclosure of the mystery. which no one could anticipate


    What does Victor Slezak bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice, his acting, as an amateur actor myself, he was totally believable


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt I was reading a newspaper report about what happened, but with insight about the facts.

    "Very Forgetable"

    I was just looking through my library and came across this title and thought...Hey, when did I get this book. After listening to a few minutes I remembered that I just finished this book about 2 weeks ago. Shows you how forgetable the story is. Very average.
