Betrayal, Revenge and Sex...oh my!! This really is an excellent book!! I've read a couple other SBs and was disappointed...this definitely changes my opinion....I'm going to try some others. This is a fairly long book (549p) but I flew through it! (even neglected my other read! lol) It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time...for both stories....and the way she weaves them together...PERFECT!! I highly recommend this book!

This book was a total surprise to me. I usually cannot stand formula-based romantic suspense novels that seem to be so popular, BUT I could not put this one down. Highly recommended!

Although I do not like most formula-type books, I found this one exceptionally good and suspenseful. I hope someone else does too!

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.

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 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.

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.

I have read Sandra Brown books for years and truly enjoy them. Her writing and the stories get belter with each one, but I'm not sure she can top this one. The characters just pulled me in. I figured out the main mystery, but had no idea how it would play out. Hated to come to the end. Of course, only my opinion.

My first Sandra Brown book. Shame on me for assuming that Ms. Brown's books would be formulaic and predictable. I almost put this one down after the first few chapters because I was so sure I had it figured out and didn't want to waste my time. I despise not finishing a book, however, so I pushed forward. I'm so glad I did. Well-developed characters and unexpected plot twists kept my attention to the point that I stayed up well past my bedtime several nights because I just had to see what happened next. So, now I understand why this author is so very popular. Unexpectedly strong female protagonist and a very satisfying ending make this a four out of five for me. Looking forward to reading more by Sandra Brown.

I am a avid reader. I actually do not write reviews but when I saw this book posted I was compelled to write that this is by far the best book that I have ever read! I know there are 500+ pages and I could not put it down. 5 Stars

This is probably one of my favorite Sandra Brown novels. To me, the characters were vivid and I could really picture them in my mind. The plot was fresh and told in an interesting way -- the present is narrated with every few chapters going back to a chapter of the novel inside the novel, so you're really following two storylines throughout. It held my interest and the end didn't leave any loose ends -- very important!
