A new book for you to "Covet"

In just a little past six months from now, Tracey Garvis-Graves' upcoming novel, Covet, will hit shelves. As you may remember, her debut novel, On the Island, was an instant hit at Chick Lit Central. Amy compared it to eating at her favorite ice cream parlor! And Kathryn found it captivating and enjoyable. Therefore, we can only just imagine what she has in store for us with Covet!

A buzz has already generated, and Covet has enough "want to reads" on Goodreads for Tracey to do a Q&A in ONE WEEK from today. Mark your calendars for March 15th and get your questions in now! And if 1,000 additional people add Covet to their shelf by March 14th, Dutton, the book's publisher, will release a THREE-chapter excerpt in the Ask Tracey Goodreads group!

And for all US readers, there's a giveaway over at Goodreads, as well, to win one of THREE galleys! The giveaway ends March 14th, so don't miss out!

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.

Without any further ado, FEAST your eyes on this... (It's "Foodie" month, so we had to use a word related to eating.)
