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.
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.**
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.*
The attraction between Cora and William continues to grow. Both try to deny their feelings but eventually admit their feelings to one another. Despite the fact that Cora is falling for Will, she can’t let go of Pierre and that causes rifts between the two.
Danger continues to follow the Kensington clan as they tour Europe. Decisions will arise that will test Cora and her limits.
What a wonderful installment in the Grand Tour Series. I love these characters and I think Ms. Bergren has tunneled her way into many hearts with these loveable characters and this entertaining storyline. The whole setting comes to life through the eyes of Cora and Will. Cora is going through many changes and struggles but she is strong through it all. I was a little frustrated with her at times in regards to how she handled the situation with Pierre but I can see how her decisions help shape her future choices.
I received a free ecopy of this book from the publisher, David C. Cook, through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I received no compensation for this review, nor was I required to write a positive review. All opinions stated are my own.

Cora is an interesting character. She is stubborn and headstrong, almost to a fault. She pushes herself and others, which isn't always a bad thing. Her father has her in a metaphorical choke hold that's getting tighter each day, and it's her stubbornness and fierce independence that eventually come to her aid.
I liked the way all the characters were challenged throughout the book. They all changed in some way or another. Except maybe Felix. But even Hugh became more human. I actually almost liked him by the end. I also liked the way Cora faced many different dangers. Some came from other people or her environment, some came from herself, and some came from her new family and friends. It was interesting to see the characters developed further and to start understanding more of their backgrounds and experiences.
I love this series. I can't wait to start on the final book, Glittering Promises, and see where it takes me.
