Grave Consequences: A Review

I didn't read the first book in this series, and while I don't know if that impacts my thoughts on the book, I figured I would throw that out there.

While Cora and her new family travel throughout Europe, the men who tried to kidnap her in book one are still following them. Although the sites are beautiful, her heart is still torn between the handsome rich Pierre and Will, the hired tour guide.  When the truth comes out and her father tries to manipulate her life, will Cora be able to stand on her own two feet?

While I enjoyed the description of the amazing places on the tour, I felt Cora's back-and-forth feelings between the two men were long winded and seemed almost as "filler" between events. All of the characters are likeable and well-developed, but I would have enjoyed the story a lot more if most of the first half of the book was cut. Once the action picks up, Cora becomes a stronger heroine instead of a silly girl who doesn't know which guy she likes. The second half of the book would make an excellent stand-alone novel.

The end is fun and fast with one last action scene and a dashing hero.

Christian fiction fans who enjoy rich, detailed descriptions of locations will enjoy this book. The second half is worth sticking through the first half.

I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.
