About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Glamorous Illusions Book Review and Giveaway

My Thoughts on Glamorous Illusions:

Lisa T. Bergren has created the ultimate fantasy in the pages of this book!   If you love secrets, beauty, romance and Europe, as I do, Glamorous Illusions is a must for your summer reading list.  It's a glorious rags to riches romance with family secrets, flirtatious evenings in a French chateau maze, a delicious love triangle (Who will Cora choose?) and even, perhaps, a kidnapping?  Dashing Lord Pierre de Richelieu will make your heart race yet at the same time your heart will ache for William McCabe as they both desire Cora Kensington.  There are also masquerade balls in Paris, dancing across the Atlantic on The Olympic (sister ship to the Titanic) strolls along the Champs Elysees and that's just the beginning!  It's the Grand Tour that few ever experience.  Glamorous Illusions is the first book in the Grand Tour series and I cannot wait for the next book to come out.  Swoonlicious!

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.
