Welcome back to the early 1900s New York City. Envy by Anna Godbersen explores the relationships of the elite in this series about the Luxe. If you are familiar with Gossip Girl or Beverly Hills 90210 then this maybe the series for you.
Penelope Schoonmaker just married the man she has most desired with a lie. The former fiancée Diana Holland is now trying to decide what her future will be. Her former Fiancé Henry wants nothing to do with his new wife. What will Laura do to hold onto to him? Will any of her plans work? In the meantime Diana’s sister is recovering from the death of her husband. What will the future bring for her? When a trip to Florida opens up will this trip keep Henry loyal or will he find a way to tell Diana the truth?
Anna Godbersen has great art work of her covers of her novels. There was a copy available at the library of one of her other books in the series. The novel in series that I began reading felt like the words flowed came off the page. So I eagerly picked up Envy but listened to the book on audio. I did not enjoy it as much. It could also be because this is the third novel in the series. Readers can read this series out of order. I just found that the story did not appeal as much as I would have liked.
