Glamorous Illusions

Buy on!

Most of the novels that I read have a very obvious ending that you can pinpoint from the start (sorry authors….), but that’s okay!  Sometimes I love reading a book that is predictable: it’s safe, blissful and I’m guaranteed a smile at the end.

But every now and then, a novel comes along that completely throws me for a loop.  Glamorous Illusions by Lisa T. Bergren is one such novel that is the first in the Grand Tour series.  I’ve read Bergren’s novels in the past and I have to say that she has perfected her craft and discovered her niche.  This book far surpasses the other novels that I have read of hers with the quality of the character development and overall plot.

One thing that I don’t recall being done in a novel are the different points of views that she sets for the characters.  Cora, the heroine, is always in first person, yet Will and Wallace’s points of view are always in third person.  It made for an interesting dynamic to the novel, where you instantly become close to Cora and her feelings, yet you could still empathize with the men.

Cora Diehl, an aspiring teacher who is the only daughter of a wheat farmer, heads home from Normal School to find that her father has had a stroke and their family is in danger  of not only losing their crop of winter wheat, but the farm altogether.   When a well dressed, pepper-haired stranger stops at the farm and confronts her mother, Cora finds herself at the center of the ultimate betrayal.  Not by her choosing, her world as she knows it is about to change.

I loved this book and would highly recommend it if you love mystery and intrigue with a dash or romance.   After you’ve finished you’ll be counting the days until the second in the series hits the shelves.  I know I will be!

I’ve read and completed this book for David C. Cook Publishing, in partnership with LitFuse publicity.  I was required to give a review in exchange for a copy of the book.   My review is not positive out of necessity, but out of appreciation.
