Book Review: Glittering Promises

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book: 
Lisa T. Bergren's popular Grand Tour series concludes as Cora Kensington journeys farther into Italy, wrestles with a terrib le 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 . . .

My Opinion
First and foremost, Glittering Promises is the third and final book in the Grand Tour series from Lisa T. Bergren. And I HIGHLY recommend reading the first two books BEFORE reading Glittering Promises. There are a lot of characters in this book and it can be very confusing reading the 2nd or 3rd book without reading the first ones first. And it takes away from the story line and, for me, the interest in the series and individual book.

With that said, I think Glittering Promises is the best book of all three books! It had so many adventures, history, love/romance, and unexpected events that I was on the edge of my seat the whole book!

If you are looking for a historical romance series, read the Grand Tour series but make sure to start at the beginning of their journey in the first book to get the full story! It's a good one!
