Product Description

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.

    I hate to say it but I did not enjoy this book. It is in a word, boring. Very. With just as much cheese thrown in for good measure. This was so disappointing. I am a fan of Amanda Cabot's historical fiction, especially her Texas Dreams series. I don't mind a light, fluffy read once in a while, but this was over the top with the cheese factor and not much happened to anyone in the course of the story, especially not that you couldn't see coming from the get go.

    I couldn't connect to any of the characters. I didn't find them interesting or even very likeable. I found it additionally annoying that this story is told from 3 points of view which just serves to draw it out longer without adding much to it in my mind. I wanted to like this book, I was excited to read it because it was by Amanda Cabot even though the writeup didn't thrill me, but it wasn't worth it. Skip it and find her historical fiction instead.

    wonderful story

    This is a wonderful story about finding yourself lost after taking a wrong turn and then making the hard decision to go where the Lord leads, no matter if it seems impossible or not.

    Once again Amanda Cabot has fulfilled my expectations by writing (and writing well) a romance that touches the heart and fills the soul with warmth. Her characters are real--with real emotions and real problems--and her story line keeps you wondering what's going to happen to these people you have grown to love and care for.

    I received this book from the publisher/author in exchange for an honest review.

    In reading At Bluebonnet Lake, it made me really yearn for a vacation. One of those stress-free, no obligations, relaxing vacations where your days are filled with doing all the fun things one enjoys. Much of my holidays this year have been jam-packed with business (had four weddings within my close family and friends circle three of them were spread out over six weeks!), so I jumped at the chance to have a mini mind vacation by joining Kate Sherwood and her grandmother on their trip to Rainbows End.

    At Bluebonnet Lake is many things. It is a touching story about the strong relationship Kate shares with her grandmother; a sweet romance (the fireworks between Kate and Greg and their fun dates were so cute!); and a little knock on the head about being too consumed with ones career. Im starting to sound like a broken record on this subject (all the novels that are coming out now appear to have the same theme!), but career ambitions are a great thing, except when they overtake our lives and affect our relationships with those dearest to us. And for Kate, her career ambitions could also mean missing out on a chance at true love.

    All in all, I really enjoyed my trip into the town of Bluebonnet Lake. It was refreshing and completely satisfying - so much so that Ill be keeping an eye out for the next instalment in the series!

    Amanda Cabot is an amazing author. She created a vivid picture of Rainbow's End and Texas' famed Hill Country. I felt as if I stepped through the pages of the book right into Rainbow's End Resort and ate some of Carmen's delicious Chocolate Pound Cake! From the descriptions to the characters, I was immersed in the story and didn't want to put the book down.

    From the first page, I felt a connection with Kate and Greg. It was immediately apparent that the two were at a "crossroads" in their lives (whether they realized it or not) and I was glad I joined their journey through the pages of this story. Kate is a beautiful young lady (inside and out) whose priorities got mixed up along the way. Greg is handsome, charming, and at a point in his life where he doesn't know what to do. Their romance was swift and sweet. It didn't feel rushed or forced.

    Each character is on a transitional journey in their lives. Kate doesn't realize her life is heading in the wrong direction until she comes to Rainbow's End and is forced to take a look at her life and the decisions and choices she's made. Greg has to overcome some painful memories from his past, so he can move on to the future God has prepared for him.

    Overall, I loved this story, and from the excerpt Amanda provides for In Firefly Valley, book 2 of the Texas Crossroads Series, this is going to be another amazing series!

    Rainbow's End, a once beautiful resort in the Texas Hill Country, sits in decay, physically and financially. Kate Sherwood, whose marketing career is on the upswing, reluctantly agrees to her ailing grandmother's request to visit Rainbow's End together for one month. While Kate's grandmother, Sally, relives the memories of her previous visit fifty years ago, Kate sees only a month without internet and cell phone service, a potential death trap for her career. When Greg Vange, whom Kate assumes is the resort's handyman, helps her get an internet connection and tells her where to find service, Kate is ready to get back on track. Or is she? As she brainstorms the marketing concept for her newest client, Greg is distractingly handsome, fun and rich. Greg has the money to restore the resort. Kate has the talent to create marketing appeal. It seems like a great match to bring life to Rainbow's End, except that Rainbow's End and Greg Vange don't fit into Kate's life plans. Will love find a way to bring them together? Read more in At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot.

    At Bluebonnet Lake is the first novel in Amanda Cabot's Texas Crossroads series. The premise, billionaire meets marketing maven, delivered a gentle story of friendship that transformed to love. The novel was laced with humor and touched on redemptive themes such as letting go of bitterness and surrendering to God's will for one's life. However, the plot meandered and was repetitive... as in the same settings/scenes occurred repeatedly. Unfortunately, I lost interest and even though the ending was sweet, I probably won't read it again.

    At Bluebonnet Lake has some good points and readers who love the small town setting might like it more than I did. However, I was a bit disappointed and I recommend renting the novel from the library prior to buying.
