Book Review- Envy by Anna Godbersen

Envy by Anna Godbersen
Reviewed by Suzanne Macaulay, Spring City

Envy, the third Luxe novel, is full of the lavish parties and scandalous deeds that have made Anna Godbersen’s series so thrilling. The second book ended with Elizabeth’s return, Diana’s broken heart, and Carolina’s entrance into the posh world of Manhattan’s elite. But more twists and turns lie ahead. What is Elizabeth hiding? Will Penelope win Henry’s heart once and for all? Is Carolina’s new status secure? A trip to balmy Florida is ripe for more secrets and betrayals—what shocking revelations will be made upon returning to Manhattan’s wintery landscape?

Envy picks right up where Rumors left off. Godbersen did not miss a beat and has given fans another juicy read. The fourth and final book, Splendor, is currently being written, and while I cannot wait to read it, I will be very sad to see this glamorous series end. Recommended for grades 9 and up.
