Publisher's Summary

Wealth cannot buy peace...or direction.

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. Yet her life has just become infinitely more challenging.…Hounded by the stubborn pursuit of Pierre de Richelieu and 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, Cora begins to wonder if their love is strong enough to withstand all that threatens to pull them apart. 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.

Everything is revealed

What made the experience of listening to Glittering Promises the most enjoyable?

That Cora grows up and becomes a thoughtful adult. I am also glad that Cora ends up with the one she truly loves.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Glittering Promises?

When Cora works with her father to come up with a reasonable and better way to handle the mines, even when it hasn't been tried before.

Which scene was your favorite?

I like the scene when Cora comes back from escaping the fact that her biological father has just died and is embraced my her siblings, and that Cora truly feels she belongs.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, I was glad though when the bad guy were unveiled.

Any additional comments?

I would have liked an extended ending that describe what happen when Cora meets her parents again, how she does running the mines, how her relationship with her sisters and brothers turns out and how they deal with Will going back to school. I would have like to see what happens to the sisters and brother too.
