At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot


At Bluebonnet Lake: A Novel
Picture & Back Cover Description from www.barnesandnoble.com
Back Cover: Her life is set to warp speed. His is slowing to a crawl. But love has its own timing.

Marketing maven Kate Sherwood's world is fast-paced, challenging, and always changing. The last thing she wants to do is grind to a halt at Rainbow's End, a dilapidated resort in the Texas Hill Country. Still, she cannot deny her ailing grandmother's request to visit the place where she and her deceased husband spent one glorious week fifty years ago. There, Kate meets Greg, who appears to be the resort's unassuming handyman. But there's more to Greg than meets the eye--billions more, in fact. 


Kate isn't looking for romance, but she can't deny the sparks of attraction that fly every time she and Greg are together. Could there be a future there? Or will Kate's long-sought promotion take her back to the big city?

Amanda Cabot invites you to step into a place away from the pressures of the day. You might be surprised by what you find at Rainbow's End.

My Review: At Bluebonnet Lake, Book 1 in Texas Crossroads Series by Amanda Cabot
Revell
Christian Fiction, Contemporary, Romance
ISBN 9780800734343

  Advertising executive and workaholic Kate Sherwood has taken a month off at her grandmother’s request. They return to Rainbow’s End at Bluebonnet Lake. The place Sally Fuller and her beloved husband had spent one magnificent vacation. Rainbow’s End is nothing like the glamorous place her grandmother remembers, it’s falling down and in disrepair. There they meet Greg Vange and Roy Gordon, sparks fly and love is in the air for both grandmother and granddaughter. 

   Quote “ Kate looked around her room, them walked into the living room and performed the same inspection. No phones, not even a phone jack. She hadn’t been surprised by the absence of a television. The brochure had claimed that was one of Rainbow’s End’s advantages, a way of helping guests enjoy the natural beauty of the Hill Country without unnecessary distractions. Kate could live without a TV. But cell service was a totally different story. She needed, she absolutely needed, to be able to connect.”

   At Bluebonnet Lake is a fresh story of transformation and change. It is as laid back as it’s Texas Hill Country it is set in. The story is well written with admirable characters. The author Amanda Cabot did a great job of giving life and faith to the characters. I recommend this novel to anyone seeking a laid back love story, it that calls for you to sit back , relax and enjoy a cool glass of sweet tea while reading. I give At Bluebonnet Lake 4 stars. 

   I want to thank the author Amanda Cabot and publisher Revell for bringing good clean Christian books like this one to Christian readers like me. I was provided with this book in exchange for my honest review.
