Sandra Brown has been writing forever and, luckily, she's just gotten better over the millenia. Envy reads like a well-written soap opera. Sandy is tricky. She can make you want to read on and on to the end.

What a cool book within a book! This was a facinating look at the world of writing and publishing, as well as, a great mystery. The author outdid herself on this one. Even though I figured out some of it the final plot twist was a surprise I didn't see coming.

I thought it was a great book. A little slow at first to get into it and once I was able to get into the characters I didn't want to put it down.

I think Envy is one of Sandra Brown's best books. There are plenty of twists and turns throughout this book. Normally I find books pretty predictable, but I have to admit this book surprised me with one twist I did not see coming. This book is 2 stories in one and a very enjoyable read.

I love Sandra Brown's books, but this is my ULTIMATE FAVORITE!!! I couldn't put it down. No matter how good you are about figuring out the plot twists, you will not be able guess all of them for this one. :)

This is an excellent book that will keep you awake just to find out what happens next. After I read it in paperback I had to order it in hardcover. It is one of my few keeper books. Everyone I have lent it to loved it.

Loved this book! It is one of the only books I have that I'm not willing to swap! :) Sandra Brown is always good, but this is one of her very best in my opinion. The story within the story is unique and intriguing in of itself, and the outside romance and mystery clinch the book as a great read.

This is written with exceptional, descriptive language. The rating was prepared not by me but by the official raters as far as I know. I think the writing is exceptional and adds to the story.

Is the manuscript submitted by a totally unknown author really fiction or does it contain the facts to a crime that was committed decades ago? Love and hatred are often found intertwined to create Envy both in this book and in reality. A must read!

Good story set in South Carolina about an editor who receives a strange, anonymous but tantalizing manuscript. The book follows the journey of self discovery and tracking down the mysterious author.

Good plot. Not a fan of the language and sexual references.

One of the few authors ever to have three simultaneous New York Times bestsellers, Sandra Brown is a world-class suspense writer who "carefully crafts tales that keep readers on the edge of their seats" (USA Today). In her latest novel, she entwines two plots into an explosive tale of a long-ago crime and the victim's plan for revenge... Maris Matherly-Reed is a renowned New York book editor, the daughter of a publisher and the wife of bestselling author Noah Reed. It isn't often that an unsolicited submission so captivates her that she feels she must immediately meet its author. But Maris has just received 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. P.M.E.'s blockbuster potential-and perhaps something else-compels Maris to search for him. On an eerie, ruined cotton plantation, she finds Parker Evans, a man determined to conceal his identity as well as his past. Working with him chapter by chapter, Maris is riveted by his tale of two friends who charter a boat with a young woman for a night of revelry...an excursion from which only one person returns. As the story unfolds, Maris becomes convinced it is more than just fiction. Disturbed about her growing attraction to Parker and gripped by a chilling suspicion about his novel's characters, she searches for the undisclosed truth about a crime committed decades ago. Then someone close to her dies, while even closer looms the presence of evil-a man who will use her, or anyone, to get what he wants... Exploring the way love and hatred shape lives, ENVY uses both Maris's quest and Parker's novel to create a breathtaking story of suspense. Not until the shattering, surprise finale will readers guess the solution to its puzzle of deceit and murder, retribution and redemption.

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.

This is actually a hardback edition. I read it a long time ago, but like all of Sandra Brown's thrillers, it was excellent.
