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…
