Jealous whispers. Old rivalries. New betrayals.
Welcome Back To Manhattan 1900.

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. . . .

Taschima's POV:

And just when you think Anna might have no more new ideas, she pulls them out of a hat.

Envy is a delightful read! The suspense, oh god the suspense. Will Carolina fall from grace? Will Elizabeth ever be happy? Will Penelope ever stop being so evil? Will Henry and Diana finally find a way to be together?

All is good in Manhattan, birds are singing, ladies are drinking tea, the usual, or is it? If all is good, why are all our main characters running away from New York into the sunny state of Florida? Yes, in this installment we take a trip. And what a delightful, and full of events, trip that was.

I am loving all my characters, except maybe for Penelope, but who could?! She is as hateful as ever.

I do not want to give it all away, I mean this is the third book in the series, it's very difficult not to give spoilers. Just know that the story takes a whole other twist, and well our characters are coming out of their shell, being less spoiled, and starting to really live.

So just be sure to put a pillow right beneath you, because this book will leave you with your jaw on the floor. I can't wait for Splendor, who knew I could love this series so?
