Book Description

The Powerful, Epic Romance Continues
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't maintain my interest... March 13, 2013
By TxMom
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed the first book in this series so much, I ran out to get Grave Consequences as soon as it hit the store. I must admit that I stopped reading word for word about half way through the story and skimmed through to the end. When an author creates two compelling, likeable characters who are vying for the heroine's affections, it is possible that the reader will not like the heroine's choice. I didn't care for Cora's choice and the direction of the book from that point. I also agree that the story bogged down in places as well and not even the historical details could capture my interest again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Read Lisa Bergren's River of Time series instead... July 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love Lisa Tawn Bergren's River of Time series, but this one just isn't for me.

I could barely make it through. There just isn't enough of a plot here to justify three LONG books. I was shocked when I finished the first one that so little plot had been covered by so many wordy pages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had hoped for... April 11, 2013
Format:Paperback
I've been anxiously awaiting this book, because I so much enjoyed Glamorous Illusions--the previous book in this series. I couldn't wait to see how Cora's life would continue; for which young man she'd choose and how the relationship would develop with her long lost brothers and sisters...

Lisa Bergren is a great author--she has a marvelous way with words. In this novel the words also flowed from the pages, but for some reason this second book in the Grand Tour Series didn't capture my attention as much as the first book did. I think I've picked up the book about 5 times to put it down again after a couple of pages. Although I'm still a great Lisa T. Bergren fan, this book is not among my favorites and it's not likely I will pick up the third and last book in this series.

*Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a review copy through NetGalley.*

5.0 out of 5 stars Did Not Disappoint! March 22, 2013
Format:Paperback
Hooray! This second book in the Grand Tour series by Bergren did most certainly not disappoint in the least! It was absolutely riveting...I couldn't stop reading. The story moves along quickly and smoothly through several fascinating European locations, following the travels and yes, drama, of Cora and her companions. It's full of well-thought-out plot twists and turns that you most certainly will not suspect. Between those enthralling locations (can I go?! Please?!), gripping suspense (you won't be able to put it down either...), and unexpected surprises, this book come together as a must-have for any Bergren fan. Just make sure you read "Glamorous Illusions," book one, first...it's crucial to understanding this one. Be warned - it doesn't end with everything neatly wrapped up! There's still a dose of mystery (and we have to wait HOW LONG for "Glittering Promises"?!). Overall, it was an
amazing book and I did love it.

**Litfuse Publicity Group supplied me with this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to post a positive review, nor was I paid in any way other than the book.**

3.0 out of 5 stars Historically Beautiful March 15, 2013
Format:Paperback
The story from Glamorous Illusions continues with the life of the newly wealthy Cora Kensington. She is on the Grand Tour with her newly discovered siblings and experiences the trials of the wealthy. I ordered the first book in this series because I wanted to start at the beginning. I do not recommend that Grave Consequences be read alone, you really should read book one to understand the story. While I enjoyed the first book for the setting up of the story, both have been extremely disappointing. I love this author and I was so excited about this book, but its a book I didn't really want to finish. Yes, there are exciting scenes and funny moments, but the love triangle is completely ridiculous and I don't see that Cora has grown up at all. It's a long drawn out soap opera that is in a perfect setting but the characters and story line did not draw me in. I love the history and beautiful places that the writer includes but the romance could have been left out.

That being said, I do love this author and look forward to other books that she writes in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sequel March 6, 2013
Format:Paperback
A majority of the romance sequels I read are about a different character in the same town as the first book or has a similar plot. I was happy to learn that the sequel to 2012's Glamorous Illusions titled Grave Consequences features the return of Cora Kensington as she continues the Grand Tour with her newfound siblings. Their father, Mr. Kensington, eventually joins them as he fear there may be danger ahead of them.

Cora's romance with the tour guide, Will, has several obstacles ahead of them as her father doesn't want her to be involved with someone that is from a poorer class. He demands that she will date and marry a man of his choosing, presumably someone who is rich. She wants to make her own decisions on whom she is suppose to love, but her father's health is failing and she doesn't want to disappoint him.

Will is the love of her life, but he get himself kidnapped, jeopardizing his future with Cora.

Romance, mystery, and adventure is what is in store for anybody who reads Grave Consequences. I enjoyed reading the first book. Sometimes sequels can be a big letdown, but not with this one. I was so interested in the plot that I read it one sitting. Lisa T. Bergren knows exactly how to weave an intriguing plot full of twists and turns around every corner. Overall, I more than enjoyed the sequel and I can't wait to read the third book, Glittering Promises, coming out this fall.

* I received this book free of charge in exchange for my review.
