At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot


What it’s about:

from the publisher:
“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?

Amanda Cabot invites readers to step away from the pressures of the daily grind. They might be surprised by what they find at Rainbow’s End.”

My thoughts:

I was excited when I saw that Amanda Cabot was coming out with a contemporary book because I have enjoyed her historical novels, so I requested At Bluebonnet Lake and am glad I did! Amanda Cabot has an easy read style of writing that I really like. I had no problem switching gears from historical to contemporary with her, as I might guess some readers will be concerned about. I found the characters to be like-able and believable. I giggled a few times with the funny things they would say or do throughout At Bluebonnet Lake. This is not a fast-paced thriller type book. That was not what I wanted or expected, so I really enjoyed this book. It is about slowing down and realizing the truly important things in life and brings the reader on more of a thought-process how these characters did that, than edge-of-your-seat settings and situations. The rural setting is something I can easily relate to and love reading books about small towns and how different they really are than big cities. At Bluebonnet Lake is a sweet, relaxing, romantic read that I enjoyed very much!

I give At Bluebonnet Lake 4 out of 5 stars and recommend this book to readers looking for an easy, vacation type book.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
