Product Description


`The perfect summer blockbuster packed with tears, tantrums and sex scandals!' --WOMAN MAGAZINE

'Move over Jackie Collins, there's a new girl in town. Outrageous, sexy, bitchy, this is the most sensational book of the year'

'There's been talk that the characters in Envy are based on real life. Rubbish! I'm nothing like Lesley Gold, a former soap landlady who's always getting herself in the tabloids. But then again... Even though it is completely fictitious, it's a right rollicking read.' --Denise Welch, Best

'We've got our hands on Coleen Nolan's Envy and it's explosive! We've heard that it's already causing a stir as many of the characters seem very familiar. The tales of bitchy back-stabbing, backstage fights and surgery habits may not go down too well with her real-life TV colleagues, past and present. But however uneasy it's making any TV stars, we really hope there is a sequel.' --Bella (news)

'Set in the world of late-night TV, Coleen's first novel is full of feisty, glamorous characters. It's a sizzling, surprising read. A great debut from our Coleen.' --Bella (review)

'If you long for the days of the high-glamour catfights which used to grace our TV screen in Dynasty and Dallas - and our bookshelves courtesy of Jackie Collins - then this the summer must-read for you. There is so much backstage back-stabbing and bitching from the telly divas in Envy that the action flies along at a rattling pace. The twists and turns are thrown at the reader thick and fast. And while it may leave you looking forward to Coleen's next novel, I doubt it will give anyone a burning desire to pursue a career in television!' -- Book of the Week, Daily Mirror, *****

'Her TV experience is evident in the behind-the-scenes detail she provides - as well as her refreshingly honest portrayal of being a celeb pursued by the paparazzi. This is perfect summer reading. Plus, it's even got a glittery cover.' --News of the World

'Loose Women star Coleen's debut novel is all about greed, lust and the betrayal of those who you thought were friends.'
--Star Magazine

Product Description

Television favourite Karen King loves three things: her job as presenter on a late night talk show, her gorgeous husband Jason, and her Spanx® pants, guaranteed to give the plumpest woman a waistline. She's happy, but fate is about to turn her ordered world upside down. Surprise number one is finding Jason in bed with a young blonde. Karen's barely over the shock when she's hotly tipped to take over primetime's highest-rating chat show. She wants the job - but so do some of the biggest divas in showbiz, not least the icy Julia Hill who will do absolutely anything to sabotage Karen. As the biggest catfight in town kicks off can Karen sort out her life and win television's greatest prize? With its glamorous characters and captivating heroine, Envy is a sexy, funny, unforgettable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! More please! 20 July 2010
I absolutely loved this book! I read it in two sittings and felt quite bereft when I had finished! Although I do believe Coleen's insistence that the characters are fictional and not based on her Loose Women colleagues, I couldn't help putting LW faces to characters, which was a bit naughty of me.
Without giving too much away for future readers, I was completely blown away by the revelation about one of the characters towards the end of the book. I did not see that one coming! Even if there isn't to be a follow-up, Coleen should definitely continue with her writing career, she obviously has added yet another string to her many stringed bow!

Plenty of of suprises along the way. Can't wait for the next book.
Well done Coleen !

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Summer Read 10 July 2010
Pleasantly surprised by "Envy" - captivated to read the book in one go ! Coleen Nolan has given the reader an insight into the world of television laced with her own ideas and colourful characters. A great read to take on holiday and enjoy whilst relaxing in the sunshine. Look forward to reading her novel !

1.0 out of 5 stars Cringeworthy 6 Feb 2013
By Macca
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has a boring and predictable storyline, rambles on and on and name drops constantly.

I was very much looking forward to reading it but found it really disappointing and complete rubbish.
