Publisher's Summary

New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just 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 chaper by chapter, Maris becomes 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 man who will use her, or anyone, to get his revenge.

You Won't Be Sorry! And I Mean It.

Envy had my undivided attention from the beginning until the very end. I didn't need time getting into the book at all, in fact, I couldn't recall a single dull moment. This book is well-written in every way, especially in the literary aspect. Sandra Brown likes to use some really rare and sophisticated words. She has just been added to my list of favorite authors.

I really like the idea of combing the two stories into one. Both stories are intriguing, compelling and gripping. They are connected and will eventually lead towards a climaxing ending. Seriously, I'm worried that a layer of skin is going to grow over my earphones, for I'd been listening to it literally nonstop. The characters are interesting and the plot twists are shocking. If you enjoy reading mystery, thriller, romance, fiction or even none of the above, you will love this novel immensely.

You won't be disappointed!

What can I say about this spectacular piece of writing? It is one of the most satisfying reads I have had in a long time and I have read over 600 books in the past two years. It has a many layered plot riddled with well developed, complex yet believable characters. Back story is revealed in a tantalizing and veiled manner that has you guessing about nearly everyone's motives throughout. The author has an ingenious knack for keeping you wondering while drawing you inexorably into the story and the characters before you can even decide who you like and who you fear. I love the author's development of a main character who is disabled and sexy as all get out.
The narrator is terrific, too. Fantastic!

Envy

If you like Sandra Brown, then this book will certainly not disappoint. Once again, it has all the ingredients of a great audio book. It will keep you listening at every opportunity and if you are listening while driving, you will wish the journey to outlast the book. I really enjoyed the way the book within the book slowly unfolded with the story, and how the characters of both books became one. Afterwards, thinking back over it, I saw how I new and liked Parker because I knew and liked Rourke. And as usual, Sandra Brown keeps some surprises till the very end! If you haven't read this one, don't wait for a rainy day. Read it now!
