Glamorous Illusions by Lisa T. Bergren probably has one of my all time favorite romance covers. I love just about anything with the Eiffel Tower on it, but this is just plain beautiful. The story was gripping and I could see it playing out in my mind, but I must warn you the ending disappointed me. The story just stopped. It reminded me of how series were written back in the 80’s and 90’s. The stories continued into the next book, and in order to find out what happened you had to keep buying the books. I stopped buying books that were part of a series for quite a while because of this. Then the market shifted and series books had satisfying endings and books could stand alone. I hope the old trend isn’t coming back.
Cora grew up on a farm in Montana. She lived a humble life and never expected more. When she returned from school no one was at the train station to greet her so a kind neighbor dropped her at home. Cora immediately sensed something was wrong.
Her life takes an unexpected twist and she finds out she is the illegitimate daughter of a copper king. She is sent on a European tour with her half-siblings leaving the only family she’s ever known behind. Cora must discover who she is and what she wants in life.
I don’t want to tell you any more of the story as it would ruin it for you. Glamorous Illusions is truly and exceptional book the ending aside.
