Book Description
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?
Book Review
 I have always had a weakness for sweet southern romances, so when I saw this book I just had to read it. I have read a few other books by this author and I remember really liking them, so I was pretty excited to get this novel in the mail. The first thing I noticed was the cover. The blurry version of the one I included above really doesn't do it justice. It's super cute. Anyway, when I started reading this book I was immediately interested in it and read it in just a  few short hours. My favorite character from At Bluebonnet Lake is most definitely Greg, by a long shot. He's a good looking guy that is most comfortable in jeans and boots, he is a nerd that earned a fortune by inventing a computer software that went viral, and he has a super cute personality. He reminds me of some of my own friends. This book has as sweet plot and is an intriguing, light, and funny read. It wasn't super intense, it wasn't very suspenseful, but I still really enjoyed it. This is what I call a "beach book". It's a book good for some good, old fashioned relaxation time. I loved how the story unfolded and I thought that the author has a really nice writing style. I would recommend this book to someone looking for a quick, lighthearted read.
