Book Review :: Grave Consequences By Lisa T. Bergren

Y'all wanna know a little secret? Well, it's not so much a secret if you know me, but I really, really LOVE books! :) And one of my favorite authors is Lisa Tawn Bergren who is an excellent author, and well known for her River of Time Series. But seriously you guys, she is one of my favorite authors and I love her books, especially the River of Time series! If you haven't read her River of Time series then go get a copy of book number one, Waterfall, like really soon! It's sooooo good, as are the other books in the series: Cascade (#2), Torrent (#3), Bourne (#3.1), and Tributary (#3.2)! In fact I just found out that there is another River of Time book, Deluge (#4) coming out! SO so excited for that one! But anywho, now back to the original purpose of this post: I wanted to share with you guys my thoughts on Lisa's latest release Grave Consequences which is book number 2 in the Grand Tour Series! If you aren't familiar with Lisa's Grand Tour Series then you should check out book #1 Glamorous Illusions HERE over on Good Reads and you can read my review of it HERE!

Taken From Good Reads:

For Cora Kensington, the journey of a lifetime takes unexpected twists. And her future—her very life—depends on the decisions she’ll make at each crossroad. As her European tour with her new found family takes her through Austria, France, and Italy, an unseen enemy trails close behind. Meanwhile, a forbidden love continues to claim her heart, putting everyone’s plans in danger. And as Cora stays one step ahead of it all, what might need the most protection is her own heart, torn between the dramatic pursuit of a dashing Frenchman and a man who has been quietly staking claim to her affections all along. Love has dangers all its own. She must escape the bonds of the past and discover the faith to make the right choices, as each one has grave consequences.

Grave Consequences (Grand Tour Series book #2) is for sure a must read if you've read Glamorous Illusions (Book 1) and enjoyed it! After reading Glamorous Illusions, I was very eager to continue the journey in Grave Consequences. Now that I've read it, I cannot wait for the final book in the series, Glittering Promises, to release in October 2013!

Product Review :: eShakti

For readers who have been following Giveaways of Blessing for a while, you may remember when I introduced you guys to the wonderful women's online clothing shop eShakti back a couple months ago! eShakti is a online clothing site that is super unique because they offer special alterations and custom sizing on all their items! So what does this mean? Well basically if you see a clothing item that you love, and really want but you'd prefer it be changed a bit like the length or sleeves, then you can order it custom to your preferences with the different options available! If you like a shirt but don't like the sleeves, then check out the options for cap sleeves, or quarter-sleeve!This site is also wonderful for ladies that are harder to fit when it comes to clothing, since you can give them your measurements and they'll make the item custom to fit you! Pretty cool huh? I sure think so, and the neat thing is unlike expensive tailors, special alterations and custom sizing on an eShakti item start at only $7.50 extra to the normal item price! Oh, and I forgot to mention that they have such a wonderful variety of options-they are sure to have something just for you!
In fact, they just came out with a sweet new spring line of multiple clothing choices that are perfect for getting you in the spring spirit and help you spring into spring. :) They have a super cute selection of both dresses, shirts as well as skirts! Now while spring hasn't officially started yet, it is right around the corner! Here is a little peek at a few of the many spring items available on eShakti right now!
