At Bluebonnet Lake, the first book in the Texas Crossroads series by Amanda Cabot looks at Kate Sherwood and Greg Vange. Kate took a month off her job in advertising to take her grandmother to Rainbow’s End in the Texas Hill Country. Rainbow’s End is not exactly what she expected when she heard stories from her grandmother about what a great resort it was over 50 years ago. The paint is peeling, there are holes in the window screens, and it seems that the closure of the resort is in the near future. When she’s there, she meets Greg Vange. At first, she thinks he’s a handyman, but she soon learns he’s a guest at the failing resort. She doesn’t know he sold his software company for millions, and is at Rainbow’s End looking for the next step in his life.
I thought this book was a cute, romantic read. It was really easy to follow, and it was a very quick read for me. The characters were likeable, and I found myself relating to their struggling with slowing down after constantly being on the go with their jobs. I also liked reading about the relationship between Kate and her grandmother. You could really tell they cared for one another, and they had a special relationship since Kate’s parents were killed at a young age and she was raised by her grandparents. Overall, this is a great book that really focuses on the role God plays in the lives of both Kate and Greg.
