It's Saturday and Guess what!? I have a wonderful cold and I feel terrible! But of course I just couldn't ignore by blog while we have luxe reviews to do! I, sadl coluld not seem to write a summary for this book so I got one from goodreads!

Title: Envy

Author: Anna Godbersen

Rating: 5 stars

Review: 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. . . .

I loved Envy! There was mystery, intrigue, and romance! The book had a huge surprise at the end!

In this book we find out more about what is happening too Elizabeth, which I will not say but I did have my suspicions on her. Penelope is still disgusting and is still the total mean girl. I was sorta glad that her and Henry's marriage isn't going well, but I don't necessarily think he should be out with Diana, even though they are "madly" in love. And Lina is still having a hard time figuring out who she is... is she the maid or the gossip seller or the rich girl, climbing the social ladders? She kind of annoys me!

The plot was good and had some amazing twists and turns!

Tomorrow: Splendor, final day of Luxe Days!
