glittering promises review

"Glittering Promises" by Lisa T. Bergen is the third book in The Grand Tour Series.  This is definitely a series that needs to be read in order.  Cora, is a young woman in the early 20th century who was raised by poor parents, only to discover that her biological father is filthy rich as well as a mean snob.  She comes to meet her siblings in the first two books, in the third she comes to discover who she will become now that she has control over a large amount of wealth and if it will change her, or if she will change the world with it. 
This is a very pretty book.  Everything is nice, it is descriptive, full of detail, and color.  The plot seems a little improbable.  She is touring Europe with her new found family and a kidnapper is chasing them, yet they don't want to give up the Tour soooo, they keep vacationing with the kidnapper following?  A lot of it doesn't make sense.  It isn't a deep novel, no life altering epiphanies; it's just a nice novel, an escape, if you will. 
I received this book for free from the Goodreads Giveaways.
