Publisher Description

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.

  • “Jam-packed with twists and turns right up to the shocking finale.” 

    - Cosmopolitan
  • “Brown stages one dramatic scene after another.” 

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Suspenseful and satisfying, Brown’s latest novel is sure to please readers, just as her many previous ones have.” 

    - Booklist
  • “Victor Slezak’s voice easily changes from that of the author, craggy Parker Evans, to the smooth and aloof publisher, Noah Reed, who both have an old score to settle. His treatment of the vixen and the heroine is equally well done. The characters come to life and are captured in both attitude and demeanor. At the end of the story, the past and the present converge to deliver a satisfying con-clusion.”

    " This is hands down my favorite of Sandra Brown. Read it many years ago, but I just remember the extent and amount of years that this book encompasses that is truly based upon one friend's envy of another friend. Very interesting read. "

    " I won a copy of the book Envy in the giveaways through goodreads. I was excited to win and read this book because I have read many of Sandra Brown's previous novels. This was a book of suspense, mystery and romance. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to friends. "

    " The plot was fairly good on this one, but I could figure it out down to the last detail within the first fourth of the book. I do like a surprise and this one was too predictable. "
