At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot

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 grind to a halt at Rainbow's End, a dilapidated resort in the Texas Hill Country. Still, she cannot deny her ailing grandmother's request to visit the place where she and her deceased husband spent one glorious week fifty years ago. There, Kate meets Greg, who appears to be the resort's unassuming handyman. But there's more to Greg than meets the eye--billions more, in fact.

Kate isn't looking for romance, but she can't deny the sparks of attraction that fly every time she and Greg are together. Could there be a future there? Or will Kate's long-sought promotion take her back to the big city?

Amanda Cabot invites you to step into a place away from the pressures of the day. You might be surprised by what you find at Rainbow's End.

Here's my review of this sweet novel:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Amanda Cabot and her publisher for sending me a copy of "At Bluebonnet Lake" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“At Bluebonnet Lake” by Amanda Cabot is a sweet story about a Grandmother's reminiscences of love from 50 years ago and the discovery of love for her Granddaughter.  I felt this novel was sappy at times, but it was still an enjoyable way to spend several hours.
Kate is an up-and-comer in the advertising world who really doesn’t have time for a vacation.  Greg is a handsome young entrepreneur who is looking for direction.  Sally is Kate’s Grandmother and the woman Kate would do anything for including take time away from work to accompany this sweet woman on a vacation to reminisce.  Rainbow’s End is the dilapidated resort where Sally and her husband spent a week during their first year of marriage.  It’s changed a lot in 50 years, but to Sally, the place is still magical.
