Review: At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot

At Bluebonnet Lake
Author - Amanda Cabot
Time It Took for to Read - 1 Week +
Rating - 2 out of 5 Stars.
Would I Recommend: Unfortunately Not
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?

What I Loved...

Well...lets just move on.

What I Liked...

The idea of Bluebonnet Lake, A Christian "resort". I can not recall ever having a read a book with a Christian Resort as the setting. I ended up thinking more about the resort even while I wasn't reading the book.


Where do I begin? I guess the cover is a good a place as any. It isn't my favorite cover in the world.

This is the second Amanda Cabot book under my belt (read my Paper Roses Review)  and quite frankly I am disappointed. I much prefer her historical fiction writing as opposed to her modern work.

I found the book so... already done by so many others. I know you are probably thinking that most romance books are recycled love stories, but this one seemed moreso than most. A mash of the most cliche romance books and movies. Lately everytime I turn around a book or movie has a marketing director as the heroine and I already know how that eventually plays out in the scheme of the book. So naturally this bored me, not intrigued me.

The hero Greg is as cliche as it gets...a rich, handosme guy hiding out looking for the meaning in it all. He didn't melt my butter.

And the one who got it all rolling...the grandmother, who you may have already guessed...raised the heroine Kate. Kate will do anything for her etc,....

There were no sparks between Kate and Greg and the book was a chore to get through.
