Publisher's Summary

Cora is about to discover who she truly is. It’s the summer of 1913, and Cora Kensington’s life on the family farm has taken a dark turn. Not only are the crops failing, but someone dear to Cora is failing as well. One fateful afternoon, a stranger comes to call, and Cora discovers a terrible secret about her past… a secret that will radically change her future.
Cora is invited to take the “Grand Tour” of Europe, a trip intended to finish a person’s education and solidify an understanding of refinement and ancient culture. As she travels from England to France with kin she’s never known, Cora encounters the blessings of a family name, as well as the curses. But when an unbidden love begins to form, she realizes there are far greater challenges ahead….
The first audiobook in the Grand Tour series will take you on a journey of cultural refinement - but, moreover, on an inner journey of self-discovery.

Well written and read! Great story line with enough real life experience with grief, love, loss and shame that makes the reader reflect on their life and coping mechanisms.

Captivating story

What did you love best about Glamorous Illusions?

The best part is when Cora's discovers who her real father is and that she never forgets those who are important to her, even after she discovers she is rich.

What did you like best about this story?

The trip to Europe,Cora's challenges with her new family and becoming adjusted to all that her new things life can give her. I also love the kidnapping plot, it makes the whole story more exciting.

Have you listened to any of Jaime Draper’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have only listen to one other book from this series and she does a great job with both the men and women voices. She also captures the emotions each scene requires for you to experience Cora's journey.

Who was the most memorable character of Glamorous Illusions and why?

Cora is the most memorable. She is strong, feisty and won't back down, but she also equals it out with always taking the others point of view, which is really hard.

Any additional comments?

Great series.
