Glittering Promises

by Lisa T. Bergren 

Glittering Promises

Lisa T. Bergren’s popular Grand Tour series concludes as Cora Kensington journeys farther into Italy, wrestles with a terrible ultimatum from her father, and comes to terms with the Father who will never fail her.

America’s newest heiress must decide if her potential fortune is rationale enough to give up her freedom and all that God is leading her toward. And when her newly-discovered siblings are threatened with ruin, her quandary deepens. Then as Cora nears Rome, more journalists are tracking the news story of the decade—“Copper Cora,” the rags-to-riches girl—and want to know more about her family and the men vying for her attention. Meanwhile, a charming Italian countess decides that if Cora isn’t going to claim Will’s heart, she might just try…

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Glittering Promises is the conclusion of ithe Grand Tour series by Lisa Bergren, and iI was really quite pleased with the ending. I have enjoyed all three of these books  following the life of Cora Kensington after she finds out about her biological dad and the family she never knew she had. Her journey has been a lot of fun and very interesting, though not always easy for Cora. I was thrilled to read about the Grand Tour, and all of the awesome scenes throughout the book so vividly described by Lisa Bergren. It was almost like taking the trip with this group, and I enjoyed getting to know each of the characters better as the story developed. And finally, Cora chooses which young man was ‘The Man’ and the loser didn’t take the rejection too lightly.

I really enjoyed this third book because it answers all of the questions you have from the first and second books. There was so much going on in this entire series, and Ms. Bergren does a fantastic job of pulling all of the tension, twists and turns and unhealthy relationships together to give readers a most amazing finale that will stick with you for many days to come!

You really need to read all three books to understand the full story. This series is well worth your time and money, you will not be disappointed! I encourage you to pick up the three books in The Grand Tour Series….Glamorous Illusions, Grave Consequences and Glittering Promises.

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.

The Powerful, Epic Romance Continues, Book 2 in Lisa T. Begren’s Grand Tour series

For 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.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I have been waiting on this second book in the Grand Tour series by Lisa Bergren. I thoroughly enjoyed the continued journey of Cora and her newfound family. I love the interesting characters, and especially Cora and Will. Their lives seemed to be more alike that the other characters, making the tension and situations more interesting. And the vivid descriptions of the places visited by this family shows the research the author did before writing this series. I loved the areas and the era of the story setting and taking this trip with these young people.

I am looking forward to book three in this series, Glittering Promises, and what Lisa Bergren has for her readers. And I highly recommend this book, and this series, especially if you enjoy historical fiction with a little romance, thrills and an all time trip of a lifetime.

Glamorous Illusions by Lisa T. Bergren Review & Win a $350 “Glam” Visa Card Prize Pack from @LisaTBegren

Glamorous Illusions

By

Lisa T. Bergren

Book Blurb

It was the summer of 1913, and Cora Kensington’s life on the family farm has taken a dark turn. Not only are the crops failing, so is her father’s health. Cora is carrying on, helping her mother run their Montana farm until a stranger comes to call, and everything changes. Cora then learns a secret that will radically change her future: she is the illegitimate daughter of a copper king who has come to claim her.

Cora is invited to take the “Grand Tour” of Europe, a journey intended to finish a person’s education, to solidify an understanding of ancient culture and contemporary refinement. As she travels from England to France with half-siblings she’s never known, Cora encounters the blessings of the Kensington family name, as well as the curses. But when an unbidden love begins to form, she realizes the journey is only beginning.

Faced with the challenge of accepting her father, new family, and the identity that comes with it, Cora also struggles to accept that she is also the daughter of the one true King-a Father who is the only One who can truly heal.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK!

Wow, this book is incredible, I love, love it! I have only read a few of Lisa Bergren’s books, and each ones just gets better!

Cora Diehl returns to her hometown Dunnigan, Montana after spending her first year at college, to find her dad seriously ill, and a farm to take care of. Cora prays for God to someway help their family with their crops in order to make it financial for the year. But Cora wasn’t expecting God to answer her prayer they way he did. Neither did Cora expect to find out secrets that would totally turn her life upside down forever. And I know there are spoilers in review already written, but I’m not going to give them here! This is where you need to read the book to find out what is happening!

In my opinion, “Glamorous Illusions is a masterpiece by Lisa Bergren! Lisa creates characters that are so realistic and true that sometimes it is difficult to realize you are reading a fiction story! The relationship between Cora and her parents is heartwarming, and just knowing that they literally spent everything they had to send her to college gave me chills. And when you read the book, you will see what I am talking about!

However, Cora was always puzzled at the glamorous, expensive gift she received for her sixteenth birthday, along with all of the other birthday gifts she received, and even though her parents wasn’t telling, Cora suspected they knew what was going on.

Then the day comes that will change the lives of Cora and her family forever, and whether that be good or bad, only time will tell. And as you follow this hew happening in the lives of Cora and her family, Lisa Bergren takes you on an unforgettable trip of lifetime as Cora joins the Grand Tour with her family.

The only thing I found that I didn’t like about the book was it’s ending, and having to wait for the second book to drop down from the hanging this book left. I hope the author gives us a better view of Cora’s family and her choices she makes while on her tour.

Overall, I love, love this book and just can’t wait for the second book! I encourage you to pick up a copy of this wonderful book and enjoy a good old nice summer read!

I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher David C. Cook through LitFuse Publicity Group. I want to thank Amy for making sure I rec’d this book, even though the publisher didn’t send it in time for the tour. The opinions in this review are mine only.
