About the Book
Lisa T. Bergren’s popular Grand Tour series concludes as Cora Kensington journeys farther into Italy, wrestles with a terrible ultimatum from her father, and comes to terms with the Father who will never fail her.

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..(Goodreads)

My Review
Having read the first two books in this series, Glamorous Illusions, and Grave Consequences, I had to read Glittering Promises. While I love the idea behind these books they have all disappointed. The first book is the best by far, it creates the characters and really makes a good story line. The second two blend into one another on the Grand Tour and they are similar. I did enjoy the ending in the last book, it completes the series and the last few chapters were great. I would not read the books out of order or by themselves, this is a must read in order series to understand what is going on. The same characters and story line carry throughout all of the books. 
If you are interested in the Grand Tour this does add a lot of history to that journey many people took at the time. This was not my favorite series, but I did enjoy the historical details.
