A Seven Deadly Sins Novel


By the NAACP Image Award winner for Outstanding Literary Work and national bestselling author Victoria Christopher Murray, who "creates believable women to whom readers will easily relate" (Library Journal), Envy is a novel inspired by the seven deadly sins: Gabrielle and Adrienne are elated to discover that they are half-sisters, but Adrienne wants more than a sisterly bond from Gabrielle—she wants her life.

Gabrielle Morgan has never been better. She has a devoted husband and a beautiful daughter, and the business she cofounded has grown into one of the best PR firms in the country. Just when life couldn’t be more perfect, Gabrielle learns a shocking, but amazing secret—she has a sister. On his deathbed, Gabrielle’s father revealed that he had a brief affair while he was on a business trip. The woman gave birth to a daughter and kept it a secret from him until the year before. Gabrielle’s father tells her that her sister’s name is Adrienne and asks Gabrielle to look out for her.

As an only child growing up, Gabrielle is determined to connect with Adrienne and invites her to visit Los Angeles. She wants to make up for everything that her father didn’t get a chance to do, and hopes to have the kind of sisterly relationship that she’s always dreamed about.

What Gabrielle doesn’t know is that Adrienne has envied her from afar for years. Now that Adrienne is in Los Angeles, she is determined to have what she’s always desired—her sister’s life. And there is nothing that she won’t do to get it.
