Book Review: Grave Consequences by Lisa T. Bergren
Lisa T. Bergren's Grand Tour series begins with Glamorous Illusions. In the first book, main character Cora Diehl Kensington starts the trip of a lifetime as she travels to Europe with family members she just learned she had. . .and lots of added stress for that country girl as finding out about this situation was a shock for her.
In this second book, Cora continues to travel on the tour with adventures in France, Austria and Italy. Two men add romance to her life. . .Pierre, an extremely wealthy businessman, and Will, one of the guides who take them on their European journey. The story weaves Cora's romantic encounters amidst a backdrop of international intrigue along with travels to beautiful castles and historical sites. As the book progresses, Cora continues to work to decide which suitor choice to make--because, as the back cover says, "each one has grave consequences."
I enjoyed the travels and following the life of Cora. . .I personally enjoyed the first book the best so far, but this book was also enjoyable. I thought Lisa's characters were quite compelling in this series and I found myself rooting for a different guy for Cora than she would choose in book two. But isn't that how life sometimes is when we see our own friends make choices? In the end, we all have to choose who God has for us. Cora Diehl Kensington sounds like a wonderful story friend and I can't wait to see how the story continues in the next book, Glittering Promises (Due to come out in October 2013) and what new adventures and choices she makes.
I won this book from the Spring Preview Contest from the BookReporter.com. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
