Continuing the Journey -- Grave Consequences

The Powerful, Epic Romance Continues, Book 2 in Lisa T. Begren's Grand Tour series.

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.

My Thoughts:

In "grand" form, Lisa T. Bergren continues her Grand Tour series with more exciting adventures of the Kensington and Morgan families' travels across Europe.

Grave Consequences picks up right where Glamorous Illusions left off.  (In fact, if you don't read book one first, you will probably feel lost in this second volume.)  Excitement continues for Cora and her fellow travelers, as she tries to find her niche in the new world she has been thrust into.  The story provides many of the elements of a great story -- mystery, danger, conflict, romance, joy, heartbreak -- in an intriguing historical setting.  The strong faith of some of the characters shines through as they face a wide range of events and feelings.

A tremendous amount of in-depth research is evident in the vivid descriptions of the places and events in the story.  At times, I almost felt like I was on the grand tour with the characters, "seeing" the same sights they did.

I highly recommend both these books to fans of great historical fiction.  I'm looking forward to the conclusion of the adventure in Glittering Promises, due out in October.

Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a copy of Grave Consequences in exchange for my honest review.
