The Powerful, Epic Romance Continues, Book 2 in Lisa T. Begren’s Grand Tour series
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.In this sequel, Cora finally realizes who she really loves.
But, Will's uncle, who is called Old Bear dies, leaving him in full charge of all of them. Will was not prepared for this unexpected death and takes it hard but for the sake of his uncle's reputation, he continues to lead the group thru France and Europe.
They meet many obstacles along the way. Besides the kidnapping in the first book, this time Cora gets her foot caught in the ice of one of the glaciers and it takes the whole group to get her out of danger.
Art Stapleton joins the tour group to help Will and he avidly takes alot of pictures for the group to remember this grand tour that they are on. Near the end of the tour, Art hires on some men to help "spice" up the tour as it was getting too boring.
But, unfortunately, when you do such things, it can go wrong in a heartbeat and so it does as one of the brothers is killed. He tries over and over again to apologize to Cora and she finally forgives him but she told him he must turn himself in to the authorities to make it right.
Now, comes the even tougher confrontation. Evidently, her father, Wallace had wanted her to choose Count Pierre, but she tells him in no uncertain terms will she marry anyone but Will. That is where her heart belongs.
I left out a good bit, like the spice part and how one of the brothers is killed so that you can enjoy the book without knowing every little detail. If you read the first book and liked it, then you will love this one just as much.
