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.

    "Envy!"

    Sandra Brown sure knows how to command your attention! I was looking for breaks in my day just so I could listen to my Ipod and continue with the story. Finished in record time and was sad to see it end. Narration good, charactors well developed and storyline excellent. Download and enjoy.....you won't be disappointed!

    "Enviously Fantastic"

    Just finished "Envy" and enjoyed it from beginning to end. I've listened to many thriller mysteries, but this one kept me guessing almost to the end.
    The Author threw many hints in the book as he wanted the readers to get the idea on the plot but I had trouble putting it down even after figuring out partly on who was who and wanted to hear more. The book had everything in it. Mystery, murder, suspense, jealousy, romance, love and sex. And after all this, a Happy Ending (just not for everyone as I don't want to spoil the fun of listening.) My first and definitely not last by Sandra Brown.

    "Great Book"

    Well worth the download. Not to give too much away, but it is like reading two books in one because of the way the story unfolds and the author creates a story within a story.

    "Simply Captivating"

    You are captivated from the opening and will not want to stop listening. "Envy" is well worth listening and is a book that I would suggest anyone to read.

    "Fantastic!"

    I absolutely loved it ... all of it, and the ending? well, I never saw it coming.

    The reader really brough the characters to life. Envy is the best audio book yet.

    "Excellent"

    Sandra Brown's best work to date. Fantastic character development and interesting plot twists. At times, predictable, yet the path to get you there is not.

    Strongly recommend.

    "Maybe not the Worst but it comes close"

    The book does rely heavily on sexual cliches. A woman unfilled and clueless, a domineering brute who some how is a turn-on, and a plot that once you take away a lot of filler verbage is fairly slim. It should be called "Revenge of the Envious Idiots." This is definitely a classic trashy novel for those who are lacking something in their own lives.

    "A great mystery..."

    The suspense, mystery and romance of the story really keeps you off your seat! A truly great book to read. I will now buy and read the other books of Sandra Brown.

    A great story, brilliantly read! Never heard of Sandra Brown before, but I will be looking out for more from her! A little predictable, but well told!
