About the Book:

The Powerful, Epic Romance Continues
Cora Kensington, the journey of a lifetime takes unexpected twists.
And her future—her very life—depends on the decisions she’ll make at
each crossroad. As her European tour with her newfound family takes her
through Austria, France, and Italy, an unseen enemy trails close
behind. Meanwhile, a forbidden love continues to claim her heart,
putting everyone’s plans in danger.
And as Cora
stays one step ahead of it all, what might need the most protection is
her own heart, torn between the dramatic pursuit of a dashing Frenchman
and a man who has been quietly staking claim to her affections all
along. Love has dangers all its own. She must escape the bonds of the
past and discover the faith to make the right choices, as each one has
grave consequences.



About the Author:

Lisa T. Bergren is the award-winning author of over
thirty-five books, with more than 2 million copies sold. A former
publishing executive, Lisa now divides her time between writing,
editing, parenting three children with her husband, Tim, and dreaming of
her next trip to Italy. She lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

My Thoughts:

The Grand Tour continues in this sequel to Glamorous Illusions. Cora
moves forward with her relationships and self-discovery while Will deals
with struggles of his own.

Cora is an interesting character. She is stubborn and headstrong, almost
to a fault. She pushes herself and others, which isn’t always a bad
thing. Her father has her in a metaphorical choke hold that’s getting tighter
each day, and it’s her stubbornness and fierce independence that
eventually come to her aid.

I liked the way all the characters were challenged throughout the book.
They all changed in some way or another. Except maybe Felix. But even
Hugh became more human. I actually almost liked him by the end. I also
liked the way Cora faced many different dangers. Some came from other
people or her environment, some came from herself, and some came from her new family and
friends. It was interesting to see the characters developed further and
to start understanding more of their backgrounds and experiences.

I love this series. I can’t wait to start on the final book, Glittering Promises, and see where it takes me.

    I met Lisa a couple weeks back when she was on the Blink tour and she is so amazing! She felt kind of like a mom – just really warm and super nice and I was thrilled to chat with her a little. I need to finish this series and her other series, which has the fifth book coming out. I'm glad you really liked this one! So many book, so little time…
