Review:Envy by Anna Godbersen

Publisher's Summary:

Jealous whispers.

Old rivalries.

New betrayals.

Two months after Elizabeth Holland's dramatic homecoming, Manhattan eagerly awaits her return to the pinnacle of society. When Elizabeth refuses to rejoin her sister Diana's side, however, those watching New York's favorite family begin to suspect that all is not as it seems behind the stately doors of No. 17 Gramercy Park South.

Farther uptown, Henry and Penelope Schoonmaker are the city's most celebrated couple. But despite the glittering diamond ring on Penelope's finger, the newlyweds share little more than scorn for each other. And while the newspapers call Penelope's social-climbing best friend, Carolina Broad, an heiress, her fortune—and her fame—are anything but secure, especially now that one of society's darlings is slipping tales to the eager press.

In this next thrilling installment of Anna Godbersen's bestselling Luxe series, Manhattan's most envied residents appear to have everything they desire: Wealth. Beauty. Happiness. But sometimes the most practiced smiles hide the most scandalous secrets. . . .

My first non-vamp review! I hope you all enjoy this.

Envy further proved the fact that The Luxe is one of the best teen fiction series out right now. Sweeping Romance and betrayals on every page, Envy is the strongest entry into the series since it's first novel. We get some plot lines tied up, and some blown open. You won't be able to guess what is coming next. The characters are flawed and perfect at the same time, making you sympathize with them. All in all, The Luxe series gives you everything you could ever want in Young Adult fiction. Sadly, the next novel, Splendor, is the last, according to many sources.
