I listened to Glamorous Illusions via audiobook and read Grave Consequences and Glittering Promises on my Kindle. I was hooked into the series from the start of Book #1 and couldn’t wait to continue with the other two books. The three books should be read in order because, together, they form one long and continuing story you will not want to put down.
The story revolves around Cora Diehl Kensington and her life immediately prior to her finding out her true parentage and then moving forward. The spiritual and personal growth and development she underwent was so heartening and inspiring to read about, especially as she navigated such new and unfamiliar territory both individually as well as physically while taking the grand tour of Europe with her newest family members. The romance developed slowly and sweetly and yet was not without its challenges especially with the attentions of more than one suitor.
Not only was the story captivating, but it made me feel like I was more than just an armchair traveler, with the sights, sounds and entertainments of each location depicted so realistically and with such detail. This series has so much to recommend: finding one’s true identity, complicated romance, intrigue, mystery and danger all within the backdrop of incredibly beautiful settings. I so enjoyed all three books!
