Cherish (Covet 1.5) by Tracey Garvis-Graves #Review

Title: Cherish
Author: Tracey Garvis-Graves
Series: Covet #1.5
Novella length
Release Date: October 28, 2014

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?

*Please note that this is a novella-length sequel. Reading Covet before Cherish is highly recommended in order to enhance your reading pleasure.

Five Stars

More of Daniel to Cherish!

After having read Covet, there was no doubt that I wanted and needed more of Daniel Rush’s story.

As you can tell from my rating that I LOVED Cherish! I loved that this was a second chance story for two people whose lives were ripped apart in the past when they experienced something so tragic. The process of recovery from his gunshot wound to the head is long and painful, but for Daniel having his ex by his side could very well be a blessing in disguise.

I liked Jessie! In the beginning she’s introduced at such a tense moment. Tracey Garvis-Graves writes her as a character with so much compassion. I loved how Jessie understands what Daniel needs, especially his emotional needs. In a way his recovery was therapeutic for her as well, and I appreciated that aspect of the story so much. I thought all the special moments for them were tender and well written.

I’m so glad Ms. Garvis-Graves continued their story. Although short and sweet, this novella was still fulfilling for me. If you were a fan of Daniel in Covet, you will definitely be a bigger fan of his after reading Cherish.

  1. This sound good Grace! I've never heard of this series until today, but then again this how I stack my audio library...LOL By finding great recommendations like this and wait for the audio. I have to go check if they are audible now...lol

    1. I think only the first book, Covet, is available on audio at the moment. I read the first book, but I think I would have had a better experience if I had listened to it. You'll have to let me how you like it. Thanks for stopping by, Loupe!
