Book Review - "At Bluebonnet Lake"

"At Bluebonnet Lake" is the first book in Amanda Cabot's Texas Crossroads series and it is a wonderful start to the series!  This is a contemporary romance series instead of the historical series that Amanda has been writing, but it is still written in the wonderful style as always and I enjoyed it so much.
Kate is on a month's vacation with her grandmother Sally to Texas to a resort where Sally has always wanted to return to.  This is not quite what they both were expecting as it is has changed since Sally had visited and it does not meet up to Kate's expectations.  Kate is deeply committed to her job in marketing and is on the path to making partner and she is still trying to balance her work while on vacation while also spending quality time with Sally.  Greg is also at the resort while trying to figure out what his next plan is going to be after selling his company and seeking for more meaning in life.  Together Greg and Kate find themselves becoming more involved in this small community and connecting with the people whom live there and both are finding meaning in their lives; however are they willing to make changes and follow their hearts?
I loved the setting of this book, the storyline and the characters.  Rainbow's End sounds like such a wonderful place and I love the family feel and close-knit community that this place is a part of.  Kate and Sally have a wonderful relationship and I loved their interactions as well as those with Roy and Greg.  The Easter celebration was such a wonderful event for the entire community and a pivotal moment for Kate and Greg.  I am looking forward to the next book in the series and revisiting this town and the people whom all live there.  I loved the inclusion of the first chapter of the second book and am looking forward to learning more about Carmen's family and seeing how all of the characters' lives are changing.

  2. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review my book. I'm delighted that you enjoyed it and are looking forward to the next book in the series. As you probably guessed, you'll have the chance to see more of some of your favorite characters, including Carmen and Fiona. I just had to give the girl with the mismatched socks a role in IN FIREFLY VALLEY.
