Book Review: At Bluebonnet Lake

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?

It seems like it's been a while since I've read and reviewed a contemporary romance. It's been cookbooks, nonfiction, historical fiction and some Amish fiction thrown in for good measure. I'm okay with that but when this book came up next in my stack, I was good with a change of pace and that's just what this book delivered. I found Kate to be a very relatable character. Perhaps it's because I've always felt like I had to live up to someone else's dream for me. Perhaps it's just the name. ;)  Either way, I found the relationship between Sally and Kate to be sweet and genuine. I enjoyed the romances involved in the story and I'll be honest, the resort itself was one that I wanted to find and hide myself away in so that I could enjoy nature and just some down time from every day life. All in all, a very enjoyable read.
