COVET Cover REVEAL by Tracey Garvis Graves

Congrats to FAITH'S PAGE!  
You have won the pre-ordered copy of COVET!! Please email me your full name and mailing address (stephanieelliot@gmail.com) so I can order you your copy of COVET! Congrats!



Seriously.

SERIOUSLY!?!?!?

Need I say more?

If you're a fan of Tracey Garvis Graves do you not LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cover of her next book? 

OH.
MY.
GOSH!


S T U N N I N G ! ! ! ! 

And can you even IMAGINE what story the inside 85,000 words holds?? 

Here's the synopsis:

What if the life you wanted, and the woman you fell in love with, belonged to someone else?

Chris and Claire Canton’s marriage is on life support. Downsized during the recession and out of work for a year, Chris copes by retreating to a dark place where no one can reach him, not even Claire. When he’s offered a position that will keep him away from home four nights a week, he dismisses Claire’s concern that time apart could be the one thing their fragile union can’t weather. Their suburban life may look idyllic on the outside, but Claire has never felt so disconnected from Chris, or so lonely.

Local police officer Daniel Rush used to have it all, but now he goes home to an empty house every night. He pulls Claire over during a routine traffic stop, and they run into each other again at the 4th of July parade. When Claire is hired to do some graphic design work for the police department, her friendship with Daniel grows, and soon they’re spending hours together.

Claire loves the way Daniel makes her feel, and the way his face lights up when she walks into the room. Daniel knows that Claire’s marital status means their relationship will never be anything other than platonic. But it doesn’t take long before Claire and Daniel are in way over their heads, and skating close to the line that Claire has sworn she’ll never cross.


Here's COVET on Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13481759-covet

You'll also be able to read the first three chapters very soon, and yes, here comes another OH.MY.GOSH... because OF COURSE, THEY ARE THAT AMAZING!

I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL SEPTEMBER TO READ THE WHOLE THING! And I know YOU can't either, but we're going to have to. Here's what I'm going to do for YOU though. Even though I'll be featuring COVET again in September with a full-on review and feature, I'm going to buy one of you a pre-order copy on amazon right now -- this means of course, you won't GET your book until it comes out in September, but I'll order it for you and it'll come to your house hot off the press when it's published. Because I love YOU! And I also love Tracey Garvis Graves and her novels! And I thought this would be a fun thing to add to the cover reveal! 

So, tell me very uniquely and creatively... and who knows, maybe I'll pick the best one, maybe I'll let random.org choose, or maybe, MAYBE, I'll just ask Tracey to choose a winner for me ; ) ...

WHAT DO YOU COVET???? Leave your answer in the comment section and one winner will be chosen to win a pre-ordered copy of COVET!  

Right now, I am coveting Tracey's book!

I covet long hair. When I was a teenager, girls had hair to their hips. Mine always stopped at my shoulders.

People that have jobs that they enjoy! Mine gets worse everyday!

Charlotte Lynn said...

I also covet this book, but I also covet a healthy life style. It is something I am currently working on, but struggle with every day.

Thank you, Stephanie!! You are awesome!!! xoxo

absolutahnie said...

i can honestly say that i don't covet anything particular in this world. someone once told me "the secret to contentment is to be happy with what you have." and so those are the words i live by.

Jessica said...

I know this probably is the cheesiest answer ever but I covet this book! That cover really is gorgeous! I try not to judge books by their covers but it's really hard not to! I've found that British authors usually have the best covers. :) I am dying to read Tracey's first book. That looks amazing too!

Thanks!

I covet no debt.

jdstec said...

Time. So many things we want or crave, we can work harder or smarter to obtain. I covet more hours in the day to spend with my family, to read, to complete my tasks. You can manage time your time, but you can't create more of it.

Bev V said...

I covet a time when my kids are done with college, on their own, and Hubby and I can do what we want, when we want. One down, one to go!

Kim W. said...

Although I love my children fiercely, I secretly and fleetingly sometimes covet life-before-kids...when time was my own; where a trip to the grocery store took 30 mins instead of 90 (IF I even ventured to a grocery store...not usually too important back then); when I could stay up late & sleep in; where I could read away a whole Saturday if I wanted to.

Anyways, can't wait to read this....loooove her writing!

Kimberly Pearlman said...

I covet winning the lotto. LOL No really I covet having my own place...one day it will happen!

ncsuloges said...

This is a really tough question...
how about a great relationship with my family, in particular my mom. I wish I had a close relationship.

Sharn3960 said...

What do I covet? Isn't coveting a sin? lol

Right now I'm coveting anyone in sweatpants as my zipper is hurting my side and I'm still at work. So there. :)

Beautiful cover! Thank you so much Stephanie for all covering all of these great books. Okay, something I covet: I want more free time with my husband, family and friends.

Carly said...

I covet all if the healthy ladies at my work and their will power. Someone will bring in a cake to share and none of them will touch it. I just look like a piggie all of the time. It's ridiculous.

i covet health--i'm a cancer survivor.

Erin G said...

Our neighborhood has sadly seen some changes lately, and is not the safe, family friendly community we moved into 10 years ago. Now that we have 3 kids - we are coveting a home in a better neighborhood, with a better school system! But I also covet this book, to escape from our troubles!

TaraUB said...

I covet the closet full of clothes that I can't fit in to and the body that went with them and the motivation needed to get back there.

Bridget O'Neill said...

I covet the body I had before cancer took away one of my breasts. Although I had reconstructive surgery, it's just not the same :(
I LOVED On the Island, can't wait to read this one!

Emma S. said...

I have to say I covet people that love their jobs. For some, a job is a way to pay their bills. I want a career that's fulfilling and challenges me everyday. Unfortunately, I'm stuck in a job that I hate, but I am proactively looking for a new job. Here's to hoping!

Susan @ The Book Bag said...

I am coveting this book! I loved On The Island and can't wait to read this one. And in general, I covet books and more books! One can never have too many, right?

Kimmi said...

I covet the financial freedom one of my long time friends is enjoying. I am so happy for them, but cannot help being a bit jealous. The last couple of years have been a whirlwind of change. Oh well, someday my boys will be on their own and I will long for the days when we were watching all our pennies, right?!
