Envy by Anna Godbersen

Its been two months since Elizabeth Holland’s dramatic return to Manhattan and all over New York City’s high society is eagerly awaiting her return as the darling debutante.  However, Elizabeth refuses to join her sister Diana’s side.  Until a trip to Florida proves too good a time to pass up and the girls, along with Elizabeth’s on again, off again friend Penelope, Penelope’s new husband (an ex fiance of Elizabeth’s) as well as a smattering of other guests embark on a journey that ends up being an eye opener for them all.

I have to say that I’m eating up this series.  In fact, I sat outside for quite a few hours yesterday with the 4th and final novel (although I had to pause every 10 minutes or so and get in the pool, it is that hot here).  This book, like the previous two, gets you so wrapped up in the lives of these people from the year 1900 New York.  The gossip and drama is so fun and you pick certain people that you just want to find good… and certain people that you hope are finally seen as the evil people that they are.  As with the other two I couldn’t put this book down and I can’t wait to figure out how this series ends.  Definitely a fun read, especially for summer!

    Sounds like a great series to read, I love reading books that have to be continued and you get to keep reading about the same characters and follow their lives.

    I've never heard of that series before, I'll have to check it out. Is that picture that you posted new? Or maybe I just didn't notice it. Either way, it's adorable!

    I haven't read this series, but I definitely plan to. I love your book reviews. Thanks to you, I have picked up several books that I wouldn't have looked at otherwise.
