Glittering Promise Review
Here is what Amazon Says: For Cora Kensington, the Grand Tour was to be the trip of a lifetime. She discovered the family she never knew she had, and may have even found the love she longs for in Will. And yet her life has just become infinitely more challenging …
Hounded by journalists chasing the beguiling story of the newest American heiress, Cora fights to remain true to her past, reconcile her present, and still embrace her future. But as Will struggles with her newfound wealth, she begins to wonder if their love is strong enough to withstand all that threatens to pull them apart.
Complicating matters is the stubborn pursuit of Pierre de Richelieu and the increased demands on her time and attention. Cora must stand up for what she believes—regardless of how that might challenge current family and cultural norms—in order to remain true to who she really is.
And as she glimpses the end of the tour, Cora knows it’s time to decide Who and what defines her … and who and what does not.
My thoughts on this book:
I really thought this was a hard book to get into. I have not read the other books in this series, however most books that are a series you can jump into or they give you background information to help you understand. I was at a total loss. I plan to go back though and read the other two books in the series and hopefully that will help.
There is a lot of going back and forth in the romance department which did keep me going to the end. I wanted to see how it turned out :). In Glittering Promises, Cora’s rags-to-riches journey continues as she discovers who she really is, who she wants to be, and the price involved in each decision. Will it cost her the love of the man she really wants? How will her decision define her future? Cora discovers that “all that glitters isn’t gold” as she untangles who truly loves her for herself, who wants to control her and her fortune, and what God wants for her life.
All in all this book was still very good, even if not a favorite. So I give it a 4/5.
