If you read Glamorous Illusions and loved it, then you will love Grave Consequences. If you have not read book one then don’t fret; Mrs. Bergren does an excellent job of bringing the reader up to date on Cora and her new found family’s grand tour of Europe and what brought them together.
Grave Consequences is the continuance of Cora and her siblings’ grand tour of Europe. They are enjoying the many castles, museums, and sites along the way, stay with numerous dignitaries and counts and sample each city’s famous wine and food dishes. Cora finds herself overwhelmed at times with the finery and the many gowns she now owns; she is used to much simpler things back on her parents’ farm in Montana.
Cora finds herself starting to care deeply for her siblings, even though they are still getting to know one another and find her troublesome and an embarrassment at times. She also finds herself falling for their tour guide, Will, but she knows how her biological father will view budding feelings. She must find her way in this new world and not loose herself or her beliefs along the way. If finding out you have a whole new family wasn’t enough, throw in someone who is trying to kidnap Cora or one of her sisters. Now she must find out who’s behind it and what they want before someone gets hurt, while not cutting the grand tour short.
I enjoyed reading Grave Consequences and loved watching Cora develop further as a character. She had a lot thrown at her and she persevered, not letting anyone dictate her life for her, not even her father. I felt this story was well written and loved reading about the different cities of Europe that Cora’s group visited. I look forward to the final book in the series coming out later this year. I highly recommend this series.
