Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Envy ★★☆☆☆

Envy - Sandra Brown

I wanted to slap some sense into the heroine and punch the "hero" in the face. What kept me reading this book was the mystery - I wanted to find out if my guesses were right. And they were! But the resolution at the end was so full of holes and implausibilities that I wanted to send the author a flaming bag of dog poo in payment for my misspent weekend reading this book. Although maybe I should send it to myself, since I knew better even as I kept reading.
