At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot

About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
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 slow down to a crawl at Rainbow’s End, a dilapidated resort in the Texas Hill Country. But she cannot deny her ailing grandmother’s request to visit the place where she and her deceased husband spent one glorious week (albeit fifty years ago). There Kate meets Greg Vange, the resort’s handyman. But there’s more to Greg than meets the eye – billions more, in fact, as he recently sold his successful software company and is at the resort in search of what’s next for his life.

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

Before At Bluebonnet Lake, I had only read a bit of historical romance from Amanda Cabot in Sincerely Yours, so I was excited to see what she could do with a full-length contemporary novel. And I was pleased to discover Cabot’s At Bluebonnet Lake to be both delightful and entertaining. It offers a classic story of two individuals who escape to a small, secluded town to find themselves and God’s purposes for their future, and in the process of discerning and discovering, find each other, too. I really liked the small-town Texas setting, giving an overall peaceful sense to the story, as well as a whole cast of intriguing characters. Though a bit predictable, At Bluebonnet Lake is a cute and sweet story, and I think fans of contemporary romance looking for a light read will enjoy it.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of At Bluebonnet Lake and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
