Grave Consequences by Lisa Tawn Bergren ~ Giveaway iPad Mini

The Powerful, Epic Romance Continues, Book 2 in Lisa T. Bergren’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 book two of THE GRAND TOUR Series, Cora Kensington and her siblings continue the grand tour on shaky ground.  They have agreed, that even in impending danger, to continue on to meet their father at the next stop in their tour.  Mr. Kensington agrees to let them go on with the tour but has decided to join the tour to make sure there is no danger lurking after his children. When a tag-along with their group betrays them Mr. Kensington puts his foot down.

Cora informs him she is in charge of her own life and that she loves Will.  Her father would never welcome a tour guide to court one of his daughters.  This angers her father and gives her an ultimatum. He orders her to court and marry someone of his choosing.  She feels as if she is trapped by her fathers demands. 

With worrying about her Papa's health, her dictator of a birth father and the possible loss of the man she truly loves, what does her future hold.  Let's not forget constantly looking over her shoulder for fear of her or the others she has become to love might be kidnapped or possibly killed.

The author has continued right where book one, Glamorous Illusions left off, with suspense, mystery, romance, reconciliation  and danger around every corner. I devoured the history the author provided, making me feel as if I were actually on the tour.  

This book was in my hands every time I left a room, it stayed with me.  My family is getting use to me getting lost in my reading especially when it is one so well written.  

I want book 3, Glittering Promises now!  But we have to wait patiently until October 2013 for it's release, you may want to pre-order the book.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this review 5+ out of 5.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the author/Litfuse Publicity Group/David C. Cook Publishing for review.
