I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, but this last book in the series was just okay for me. It felt slow probably because I’m not really familiar with Europe so the descriptions were longer than I’d prefer and many of the places blurred together for me. I think overall if the book was shorter it would have felt fast paced, but I don’t think fast paced is the goal for this series. All of the books give beautiful descriptions of Europe and its history. Glittering Promises specifically shows us the beautiful cities and countryside of Italy.
I loved the characters of this series. It was nice to think back on book one and see how far they have come. Cora has been through a lot. She was asked to endure a lot through this final book though her trials this time where much different than the first books. Will drove me a little crazy. He seemed a bit hypocritical with his jealousy of Pierre. I wanted more between Will and Cora, but them trying to find their way together was the major plot. I enjoyed hearing more of Vivian this time. She was stronger and more kind.
After the first half of the book things really picked up, and then I loved it. If you read the first two in the book you have to read this final leg of their journey across Europe. The ending was beautiful and the excitement made my heart speed up.
