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.

    I have read about half of her books and this one is hands down my favorite. The characters are well developed and the narrator really brings them to life. The narrator does a great job with all the voices and brings each personally through loud and clear. I loved this book!

  • Meredith Beasley

    o have tried to listen to this book from other sites, but have been unable to tolerate the echo and muffled recording. This particular recording from audiobooks.com is excellent! I was so excited to find it

    Love it! Almost gave up on Sandra Brown books. I'm glad I didn't miss this one. Great book, well done.

  • Susan

    The story was riveting. Bit a few nails and hated putting it down....However, this book was made even more exciting by the reader. Powerful and exciting.

  • Colleen

    Very intriguing. It had me listening closely to the very end. I wanted to listen to parts of it again just to catch additional hints. Enjoyed the suspenseful story line.

  • Gloria Nowicki

    Frankly I did not expect to like or get into this book but got very interested in the plot as it thickened with lots of twist and turns - some edge of the seat reading.

  • dlct

    I really loved the interweaving of the author's writing of his "novel" and the story unfolding. The narrator was very good and the twists were believeable, if not entirely surprising. Then again, I think the reader is meant to figure this one out.

  • Laurajean

    The book was excellent. The characters were developed with depth and a keen sharpness. However, I didn't like the narrator. I found his voice to be too slow and lifeless and his southern drawl displeasing.

  • Pamela

    This was a well written, well-performed audio production. I loved the story and wish I'd rented the unabridged version so it wouldn't have ended so quickly. The story within the story technique kept me spellbound. Excellent use of plot and characterization, too. Rent it and enjoy!!!
