Book Review: At Bluebonnet Lake by @AmandaJoyCabot #amreading


at-bluebonnet-lake“The last thing Kate Sherwood needs is a man, so why is she so drawn to the handsome handyman at the Rainbow’s End resort?” This is the tagline for the book and is a perfect clue about what’s going to happen At Bluebonnet Lake. Kate visits Rainbow’s End resort with her grandmother for a month-long getaway, although she doesn’t want to be gone from her job in advertising for that long. She’s aiming for a promotion and being gone that long can ruin her chances of getting it. Little does she know that what she thinks she wants the most may not really be what she needs in her life. It takes a tragedy to wake Kate up to the life God has for her, and during this time, she deals with spiritual warfare not unlike what many of us may deal with when we’re running from God.  Greg, Kate’s love interest, has a lot of baggage he’s dealing with too and sometimes you wonder if they’ll ever get it all worked out and finally get together.

This book is a sweet love story, written by Amanda Cabot, that contains more than one romance in it. The characters are written well and the setting is described in such a way that you can easily visualize it. There are no surprises in this story, but that’s okay. These are characters that you can’t help but root for!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

More about the book:

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 didn’t come to Rainbow’s End 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?
