At Bluebonnet Lake...Review

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 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?

Spending a month in a run-down and dilapidated old resort isn't her idea of a good time and Kate Sherwood finds the slow pace and lack of internet access at the resort frustrating. Greg Vange, on the other hand, loves the change of pace and getting away from the fast-paced workaholic life that once consumed him. I loved Kate and Greg and watching their relationship unfold. These characters were strong and well developed and I enjoyed that they were a bit more mature in age. Their conflicts and dilemmas were believable and real. Grandma Sally was such a spit-fire and I adored most of the secondary characters.

Like the fictional Rainbow's End resort, a place of reflection and relaxation, this is a slower-paced story, but we're allowed to get to know these characters and see their growth and progression. The Christian elements are light, but significant.

This languished in my TBR pile and I'm sorry it took my so long to get to it. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Rainbow's End. First in the Texas Crossroads series, I am looking forward to more.
