- Great Story by dgottreu on 5/24/2013
Grave Consequences by Lisa T. Bergren was a great story about the continuing travels of the Kensington’s and Morgan’s. It is still the summer of 1913 and the Kensington and Morgan siblings are continuing their Grand Tour in spite of the attempted kidnappings and other problems they faced during the first half of the tour. Cora’s journey of a lifetime is also giving her a chance to get to know herself, to realize what she truly believes about God, and to discover what she really wants out of life. Cora is also still trying to decide if it is Will or Pierre that she truly loves and this indecision seems to put a lot of plans in danger. As the group travels through Austria, France, and Italy, they realize that the man attempting to kidnap Cora is still following them. The two fathers have joined the group for the travels through Italy. It is in Italy that the kidnapper makes his final move which leads to a lot of suspense. It is somewhat of a surprise when the identify of the person who hired the kidnapper is revealed. I had a feeling that the person was involved but was still surprised at how and why he was involved.
Just as in the first book, the author again did an excellent job developing the characters and bringing them to life. The plot had several twists and turns and the suspense just kept building with each chapter. Just as I had everything all figured out, something else would happen and I was again left wondering. With Will now the bear of the group, the lectures about what they were seeing were more interesting for the group. As he was describing all the things they were seeing, I was seeing them in my mind right along with the group. The dialogue and interactions of all the characters were also very well developed. The author’s extensive research was evident throughout the book.
I recommend this book just as highly as I did the first in the series. Actually this book just might be a little more exciting, at least for Cora but that excitement is tempered with a good bit of fear. There also seems to be more interaction between Cora and Will which I really enjoyed.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from David C. Cook at Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
