At Bluebonnet Lake Review

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?

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.

At Bluebonnet Lake is the first book in the new Texas Crossroads series by Amanda Cabot. While I enjoyed this story it is not my favorite of Amanda Cabot's. I found that this story is very slow going and it dragged a bit at parts but I loved each character and the story was really sweet. At Bluebonnet Lake really helped to remind me to slow down a little. But the thing that bothered me was that there was nothing huge that happened to make the story pick up the pace, and I think it needed a little of that excitement. 

3.5 out of 5. A snack for a nice lazy afternoon.

I got a free review copy of At Bluebonnet Lake from Revell Publishers in return for my honest review.


  1. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review my book. I'm sorry it wasn't your favorite, but I appreciate your honesty.

    1. Amanda, while it wasn't my favorite I did still really enjoy it. I also really liked the other books by you that I have read. Thank you for writing!
