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.

    "Great story!"

    Kept my attention the entire time. Loved the plot and all the twists and turns. The characters were very interesting and just when you thought you knew what was going on...you didn't. Performance was excellent and overall it was very enjoyable.

    "Amazing"

    I thought the writer was a genius to have woven the story the way she did: stories from the past mixed in with people from the present and then tied together with characters in a book. I am trying not to give the story away. You will just have to read it. It was a great read and the narration was absolutely excellent.

    Story
    "Still a favorite author"
    What made the experience of listening to Envy the most enjoyable?

    The narrator's use of his voice to emphasize strategically.


    Which character – as performed by Victor Slezak – was your favorite?

    Parker Evans


    Any additional comments?

    My first audible book that I've listened fully to. The narrator along with the story line kept me hooked to listening.

    Story
    "A riveting read."
    Would you listen to Envy again? Why?

    No, I know the ending so it wouldn't be as exciting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Envy?

    The scene between Parker Evans and Noah in the old mill at the end of the book


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

    I love the narration of Victor Slezak, in fact I sometimes choose my books when I know he is the narrator.


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

    Maybe when you learn of how Parker Evans ended up in a wheelchair


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed this book very much.

    Story
    "TERRIBLE - The wettest most predictable tripe ever"
    What would have made Envy better?

    A less predictable story line, some character depth and perhaps an ending that was not so obvious


    What was most disappointing about Sandra Brown’s story?

    This was as soppy as Mills and Boon


    What didn’t you like about Victor Slezak’s performance?

    Mispronunciation of words


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I laughed out loud at some of the more ridiculous parts of this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Terrible!

    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.

    "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.
