At Bluebonnet Lake

Back Cover

Marketing maven Kate Sherwood’s world is fast-paced, challenging, and always changing.  The last thing she wants to do is grind to a halt at Rainbow’s End, a dilapidated resort in the Texas Hill Country.  Still, she cannot deny her ailing grandmother’s request to visit the place where she and her deceased husband spent one glorious week fifty years ago.  There, Kate meets Greg, who appears to be the resort’s unassuming handyman.  But there’s more to Greg than meets the eye—billions more, in fact.

Kate isn’t looking for romance, but she can’t deny the sparks of attraction that fly every time she and Greg are together.  Could there be a future there?  Or will Kate’s long-sought promotion take her back to the big city?

Amanda Cabot invites you to step into a place away from the pressures of the day.  You might be surprised by what you find at Rainbow’s End.


In reading At Bluebonnet Lake, it made me really yearn for a vacation.  One of those stress-free, no obligations, relaxing vacations where your days are filled with doing all the fun things one enjoys.  Much of my holidays this year have been jam-packed with business (had four weddings within my close family and friends circle – three of them were spread out over six weeks!), so I jumped at the chance to have a mini “mind” vacation by joining Kate Sherwood and her grandmother on their trip to Rainbow’s End.

At Bluebonnet Lake is many things.  It is a touching story about the strong relationship Kate shares with her grandmother; a sweet romance (the fireworks between Kate and Greg and their fun dates were so cute!); and a little knock on the head about being too consumed with one’s career.  I’m starting to sound like a broken record on this subject (all the novels that are coming out now appear to have the same theme!), but career ambitions are a great thing, except when they overtake our lives and affect our relationships with those dearest to us.  And for Kate, her career ambitions could also mean missing out on a chance at true love.

All in all, I really enjoyed my trip into the town of Bluebonnet Lake.  It was refreshing and completely satisfying - so much so that I’ll be keeping an eye out for the next instalment in the series!
