Review: At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot

At Bluebonnet Lake (Texas Crossroads #1) by Amanda Cabot
Release Date: October 21, 2014

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?

At Bluebonnet Lake is the first book I have read by Amanda Cabot and it might not be the last. I enjoyed reading the first book in the Texas Crossroads series, even if at times I felt the book was drawn out. The plot is predictable, but in a comforting way.

The characters were interesting, but with as long as the book was, they could’ve been fleshed out better (at least Kate could’ve been made more appealing). I did appreciate the secondary love story (almost more than the main couple).

Overall, I feel there’s not much I can say about the book. It was ok, but not great. Will I read the next book? Quite possibly. Please don’t base your judgement on my opinions and give it a shot for yourself.

I received this book from the publisher for an honest opinion.
