Publisher's Summary

New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a bestseller when she sees one - even if it is 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 chapter by chapter, Maris gets 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 will use her, or anyone, to get his revenge.

Envy explores the way love and hatred shape lives in a breathtaking story of suspense.

Great Story!

The story line is great! I was hanging on to every word. At first I didn't like the narrator, but he kind of grew on me.

Not my favorite Sandra Brown novel ......

I love Sandra Brown. She is my "go to" author when I want an interesting, semi-romance novel for a weekend listen. I read Envy years ago and was looking forward to the audible performance. Like the written word, Maris is a likable heroine. ***Spoiler*** I had trouble relating to her character because I believed she was attracted to men for what I considered to be unrealistic. Parker was not my cup of tea as a hero .... I found him coarse, and just plain brutally mean. At the end of the story I was supposed to be happy they found each other?? For this reason I gave the book 3 stars. I think it is interesting enough to buy on sale, however not worth a coveted credit.
