About the Book:
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.
I enjoyed the first book in this series (my review) and Cora and her three suitors are back, along with most of the other main characters from Grand Illusions. Another attractive interesting man is also important to this episode. That's my only real complaint about this book, this series--it is a series of episodes in the same story rather than a bunch of lightly related stories. Without completing the series, the reader is left wondering what she missed. That may be good for selling books, but as a reader, I prefer a complete plot arc, including resolution, in the books I buy. On the positive side, the descriptions of the local and time period are lush, the characters are interesting and the plot is engaging. Grade: B.
