At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot (Review)

  • Series: Texas Crossroads (Book 1)
  • Paperback: 384 pages
  • Publisher: Revell (October 21, 2014)
  • ISBN-13: 978-0800734343

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?

 My Review:

This was an okay Contemporary Christian romance book. I was doubtful in the beginning that I would like it because the plot is predictable and done before. The characters were well developed though. I enjoyed the relationship between Kate and Greg. There was a secondary romance between Kate's grandmother, Sally, and Roy, a local. Rainbow's End was an interesting location. It reminded me of camp movies. I wanted to see more done with it in the book. This is the first book in the series so hopefully the next book in the series will start a revitalization of it. I look forward to reading the next book.
