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!

Glittering Promises by Lisa T. Bergren- The thrilling conclusion of The Grand Tour!

My Thoughts:

Glittering Promises, the third book in the Grand Tour series by Lisa T. Bergren, is filled with breathtaking beauty, ruthless deception, and all the romance of Europe!  Cora Kensington is quickly becoming the richest woman in the United States, but at what price?  As if that isn't overwhelming enough, two handsome gentleman are desperately competing for her heart.  Pierre de Richelieu- the rich, handsome French prince and William McCabe - the dashing and brave (but penniless) "bear" of her Grand Tour.  The elusive Ethan Hawke is still in the picture, too, having unsuccessfully kidnapped Cora and her younger sister in Grave Consequences.  Cora and her siblings must watch their every step and be wary of whom they trust...

I found the beginning of Glittering Promises to be a bit slow, but it quickly gained momentum.  The love triangle of Cora, Pierre, and Will, was compelling in itself!  I wasn't ever sure who Cora was destined to marry.  But my goodness, the end was an absolute surprise to me!  Through her words, Lisa T. Bergren painted vivid images of Europe on every page.  The history, architecture and stories of the Grand Tour is a delightful education for readers!  Oh, but don't let me forget the passion!  The baths at Saturnia- be still my heart! Will and Cora's interlude at Cascate del Mulino made my pulse race…  

About the book: 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 . . .
