Fans of Covet by New York Times bestselling author Tracey Garvis Graves will be delighted by this novella-length sequel.
When Daniel Rush wakes up in the hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the head, the last person he expects to see at his bedside is his ex-wife Jessica. Their marriage disintegrated after the death of their infant son Gabriel, and Daniel gave Jessie what he thought she wanted: the freedom to start over with someone else. But Daniel never updated his emergency contact information, and Jessie is the one who receives the call with the devastating news.
Daniel was Jessie’s one true love. Together since college, Jessie had dreams of raising a family with Daniel, and growing old together. When Gabriel died, Jessie buried those dreams with her beloved son and shut everyone out, including Daniel.
Daniel faces months of grueling rehabilitation and he’s going to need some help. Jessie is the last person anyone expects to volunteer, but this is her one chance to make amends, giving her and Daniel a shot at getting things right this time.
The road to recovery will be long and arduous. But with Jessie leading the way, Daniel just might be able to get his old life back.
Daniel knows how to covet. But can Jessie help him remember how to cherish?
Daniel was shot towards the end of Covet, right around the time Claire and her husband was patching things up between then. At that point I was DYING to know what’s going on with him, and while we got the gist of things, Cherish brings us the complete story.
We know Daniel. We love him already. And since we know he recovers, there’s no plot surprises here. What we do get with this achingly beautiful novella, is his recovery story.
Aided by his ex-wife, Jessie, he slowly gets back to himself. Slowly regains his strength, physical and mental, and slowly heals. Jessie, while very vulnerable, is incredibly strong and very determined. She also obviously still loves Daniel.
Learning their back story and how everything led up to their divorce, tears happen. Kleenex is used. And the reader emerges smiling from ear to ear. That’s how I felt, anyway.
