This Book Room: Glittering Promises

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 track 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...

Additional notes: This is the third book in the Grand Tour series. You can read my review of the first book here and my review of the second book here.

My thoughts: This was an awesome conclusion to this series. But I have to say... I really wouldn't mind reading more about Cora's life! The story is so good that I wanted to know more, more, more. I love that this story has intrigue, mystery, romance {a smidgen which is just fine by me!} and history. Reading this series is like getting a history lesson.

I chuckled quite a bit at the parts where the "paparazzi" are chasing Cora down, as I imagined modern-day celebs fighting off the paparazzi. It was a really funny visual to imagine Cora in a full-on gown, hair coiffed and running from men with old-school cameras. The story is well written and provides quite the picture for the reader.

The story is, at its heart, quite innocent. I truly enjoyed about this series. I highly recommend this series and am really glad I discovered this author.

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